have you tried writing a list of your favorite things..
and also a
list of things that make you feel comfort, or that even 'used' to make you happy?
When I was deeply depressed,
I truly believed it was not going to pass, but it did, and I had a rough case. Yet the light came again.
Sometimes things as simple as
visiting the pet store helps. Or advertizing that you are a dog-walker, (then only take in the amount of work you can handle)..just a thought.
For me, (which likely will be different for you)..it turned out I had a
B6 and B12 deficiency and was told to
make apple cider vinegar italian dressing for my saleds...simple enough,
plus I was told it would help me absorb stress vitamins better
because nutrition demands that they need certain acids to absorb,
..it inadvertantly helped my gerd when I had it (12 years, but not for the last 5)..
That's just an example of small things making a difference to me, so,
consider what 'small things' might make a differnece for you...
Your doctor or a counselor may have a suggestion that will work customized to your emotional
needs too if you ask.
Sometimes it's hard to do even as much as making an appt, but every little step
accomplishes more than it seems..there are no little things..
Work hard, oh so hard, doing what's right, or
Work even harder doing what's wrong.
Work truly the hardest av__ding work ...
Work with a song 'n' it doesn't hurt.
He who begrudges, he never plays...
He who sings,...plays even through rain.
He who can't play has rocks in his head
But the happy man sleeps like a river rock-bed.

Cancer survivor, fibromialgia,

gout and arthritus, pseudogout,
past anxiety/panic/depressive disorder,
unfair amount of shortness...,
occasionally a bent-up attitude,
disturbed company, a messy house,
..(hey.. there's no pink here..),
I hate to admit this..
'happy shopping' syndrome..(shh)..,
slightly twisted sense of humor..
...mysterious other issues...
I am about to launch the HCG diet,
Wish me luck...
During heavy-duty projects like this,
I sometimes tend to temporarily
disappear into black holes...
(I've really had too much fun with
this li'l color-toy...)
