Hey gang,

Totally depressed today (crashed a few days ago) also have been cycling a lot. Anyhoo, sitting here at work trying to think of some positive thoughts.

I thought to myself just now that I am proud of myself for being a full time secretary to three psychiatrists. I have a lot of pressure on me every day and somehow I make it here every day. I am proud of myself for that and also lately I've been working extra hard (which takes a lot of effort) on getting more organized in my office and for my role.

I think since we tend to drown ourselves in guilt at times, we should all post what we are proud of ourselves for. So post a reply and it can be something as small as doing the dishes today because we all know what an accomplishment that can be!!

What are you proud of yourself for????

Hugs,

Mogs I've always admired what you've been able to do!  I'm glad you're able to appreciate yourself for it too!

I am grateful that you are able to see the great things you were able to accomplish, Mogs. You truly are an inspiration.

I am proud of myself for not giving up on life when I wanted to. For finishing school despite all the setbacks. Those are the biggest things that I am proud I accomplished.

Thank you for this idea Mogs.  I am proud of myself for not completely falling apart yet on this moving week.

Yay! I am proud of all of you for all of those things; huge mountains to climb for sure! So glad you finished school Olivia; I know that was tough, you really deserve that great feeling of accomplishment.

Soleilsun, I just moved too (twice actually--at work and at home!) so I know managing stress levels thought that time is a tough feat; sounds like you are doing great!

Thank you for all of your compliments to me--they mean a lot. I believe we are all inspirations because we are still here on this earth even though I am sure we've all been at that dark door at least once; wanting to give up and end it all.

Tortoise, my friend, I know you have a lot to be proud of...share with us if you feel comfortable?

Hugs,

Mogs

Not much Mogs.  Got a job.  Lasted about 3 weeks.  Applied for disability.  :(  Having problems with irritability, big anxiety, trying to not be a terrible parents and falling apart during the holiday season.
 
NOT getting support from my fiance over the "fun" stuff I use to try to keep myself sane - a heated atuomatic watering system for my rabbits.  Rendering venison fat into pure tallow for making soap.  Carding sheep wool / angora blend for future spinning/knitting.  Butchering rabbits for the freezer.  Pinching every penny by comparison shopping (unneccesary, but fun for me).  No support.  He thinks I am wasting time.  Duh!  I'm stuck at home all-day, every-day with a seriously obnoxiously whining 3-year-old.  I need something to do to waste time.  :(
 
Maybe a bad day to write on here.  My fiance, my son, and I are staying with my fiance's parents.  They don't freaking have a schedule for dinner.  (Cannot handle that)  I laid in bed all day - just got dragged out of bed a few minutes ago.  :(  I CAN NOT WAIT to be home.  And then I have to deal with Christmas.  :(
 
Did I mention I can't deal with changes to my routine/schedule?  I hate holidays and vacations.  :(

  Great for you Mogs. I have come to believe that how we view the world makes a huge difference in fighting and living with this desease. If you can get over the hump of everything is bad, and instead concentrate on what is good, than you are so much farther along in living with this.
 
  I call it the Thor method. smilewinkgrin   smilewinkgrin smilewinkgrin   smilewinkgrin   smilewinkgrin   My puppy shows me every day to enjoy a good meal, have a good tummy rub (Hey we could use a good tummy rub from time to time) turn turn turn turn turn   And having good companionship and a warm place to sleep is all we really need for happiness. Everything after that is just extra. He doesnt strive for a Xbox, or worry he isnt riding in a mercades. He is in touch with the simplest of  pleasures. 
 
 
  Have to say, there is lessons to be learned there.

Aw, Tortoise, so sorry to hear about all of this. You must be feeling overwhelmed. Being overwhelmed is never a good thing for us. Is there anything you can do to just be alone and try and meditate or walk in nature to try and relax? Keeping with the "proud" theme, I would be really proud of you if you took some time for yourself to be still and calm and peaceful..... wink wink :)

Good to see you Bill and happy to hear Thor stories!!!

I am proud that the miserable-ness was limited and I'm back to "as good as it gets." I'm proud to be working on unfinished business.

We missed Thanksgiving dinner. My fiance was in a bad mood by then and I was not functioning well. I wish I had gone to my brother's house for Thanksgiving. :(

But I'm OK. I have a plan for the weekend and it's gonna be OK because I said so!

Great idea for a post!

I am proud of myself for not breaking down or blowing up when I drove the 60 miles to work last night only to find I had read my schedule wrong and that I was not supposed to be in till tonight!

I am at work now and proud that I am able to concentrate enough to actually be useful. One moment at a time.

I may not be perfect, but in all the world there's no one better at being me than ME.
