Hi, my screen name is Display.

I slept a lot last night and woke up depressed. I really didn't feel I could get my day started, but then read a few posts on here, and that helped me to know I am not alone.

So I will try and take today one step at a time, just focus for now on taking a shower, getting dressed and having something to eat.

By the way, sleeping a lot doesn't really solve anything, I have realized. So I do need to re-think my attitude towards that.

Thanks for listening,
Display

Hey welcome back display

Just getting out of bed, shower and food is a good start.

I actually have gone for a walk, me and my fat dog, for the last 2 days...that helped..just getting back on anti-depressants.

Anyway, sorrry you have to come back but nice to see you again. Keep in touch

Hi
Display,

Thanks for posting on how you are doing. When I am depressed, I sleep a lot too. I allow myself a couple of days to just chill and do whatever. But you are right. You do need to start focussing on small goals and such.

Take care, I have fake nails on and I cannot type.

Hugs, Karen

Display....Welcome back...wish you were feeling better. I do think it is a good idea to have small goals to try an accomplish each day, don't over due it but just something like Maggie does like going for a walk. I found the longer I isolate myself the harder it is to get back to life. Take each ay one step at a time.

Take care, Amy

hey display!! You are already doing very well!! That's great! Keep the motivation with you sweety!

Yes! sleep helps for a while! Though its very hard for me to sleep when i have stream of thoughts going around in my head most of the times! Sleeping more than 6-8 hours isn't good! So get up and eat good food, u already have the motivation!! :)

Lots of love! :)
