it is all about the here and now. how do we live in the here and now, i am probably not the best person to ask, but for me it is about living, and each and every day. it is about getting out of the house, visiting your neighbour / friends, it is about going for a walk, or riding your bike, whatever it is that you do. it is about self love, about self-esteem it is about you. we all have so much to give, we all have unique gifts and talents, sadly we don't use them near enough-guys pull them out of the cupboards!!!!!!!!!! this includes me!!!!!!! i know that i live too far in the past, something i am working on. as long as we are works in progress we will get there. time can be our worst enemy or it can be our best friend. depression skewes too much, depression is so debilitating, mental illness and illnesses are just so draining. but together we can fight my hw buddies, and together we can beat this nasty disease. remember to beleive in you, remember to love you and remember to be true. and never ever give up fighting, for that's when it tightens it's grip on you. i am struggling, but i am fighting, been fighting over 25 years with mental illness. i have have seen every bit of the spectrum and i am still here!!!!!!!!!!!! come and join the fight with me. visit your doctor, make that appt to see the therapist, talk to your friends, visit your neighbour for a chat, force yourself out of bed, call a buddy, go for a walk and rember that you are a unique individual of this earth with gifts and talents unique to only you.
 
with much loving and healing compassion to you all.

Very well said, Jamie, and so true.

My printer gave out this week and I've been working on getting a new
one installed and planning my art work for my grandchildren. Time just flies when I'm creating for them, and I love it.  I wish I could devote more time to it. Most importantly, they love it  as well. You have no idea how rewarding that is for those of us old  enough to have grandkids.

I just keep growing and growing spiritually, I hope, and love you all.

The diet thing keeps me stable, mostly.

Talk to you later.

it is so much easier to just lie down and give up, and it is a struggle every single day. Some days I win, some days I lose...

My husband was getting very frustrated on computer this am and said"My life sucks". And I said, sort of joking, "Join the club". And then you know what that ****said????? He said" The difference is you MAKE your life crappy. I don't have a choice"


Why do people think depression is a matter of will power. If we wanted to, we could be happy and bubbly. That depression is a cahracter flaw, a weakness. And we are so strong. I've told my husband before"you try walking a mile in my shoes, you wouldn't make it 10 feet"-HA!!!

Does he really believe that I choose to be in this fight? It's not like I get any sympathy from him (not that I want it) I try not to ever complain about aches and pains, or how crappy I slept or cry in front of him.

It is getting impossible to have a civil conversation with him and he wonders why he sits by himself at night. He is now in depression phase of his BP. Still no meds. If I even mention meds, he says"I'm doing fine. We can't afford them anyway". Yeah, but we can afford money for his happy hours and other self medication??

Sorry, got off track.

My AA cousin said"progress, not perfection" and that is what we all work for, right?

Katie is ok, still no shrinnk appt, so no meds. I guess I have to cahse them down.

Anyway, jamiee thanks for the motivation to keep fighting, cause I was not feeling it. As always, good advice

Thanks for listening

Maggie

Hi Maggie,

I am so sorry about your husband's harsh words. Know that it is just his depression talking. And try to ignore it. It doesn't sound like he is himself. We all know that we don't want to be depressed. And it isn['t always easy to carry that smile around. Just pretend he didn't say that and go on about your day. Don't let it bring you down. You are a wonderful person, and you are valued here. I hope that you know that.

I hope that you can get past this and start to feel better. Like I said, pretend he didn't even say it. It isn't worth ruining your whole day over something somebody said.

I have to tell you that it was beautiful here again today. Nice, sunny and warm. I got in two walks, which is great. And the dog is happy too. She keeps me going. She pulls me along when I don't really want to go. And I am always glad that I did go.

Take care friend. Keep posting. I hope that you are having a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

You are absolutely right, my dear but sometimes it feels so much better to gripe-lol.

Yes, beautiful day here as well. Got alot of put off errands done today, started housecleaning so I'm good

My sister is coming down first weekend of Nov. It will be the first time my family has seen the new house after Katrina. Last time she was here we were living in a 8 by 30 trailer!! She always lifts me up, always in my corner so it will be a wonderful visit.

Lots of good things to look forward to...thanks for the kind words Karen Hope you had a great day too

Maggie
