I have been so down and drepressed lately and I finally realized no one else can pull me out of it unless I do something to help myself. I have had a really good weekend so far because I decided to get up and get out. Yesterday I had a bunch of bills and paper work to do so instead of sitting at home doing this I went to the library and found a nice place to sit and did all of my work there. I happened to run into an old boyfriend and it was great to see him. Just being at the library made me feel like I was part of the human race. It was very pleasant. I also made plans to go out to dinner with an old high school friend and we had a great time talking and catching up on everything. Today I got up, worked in my garden this morning, got cleaned up and went out. I went to a housewares/home furnishing store to look at all kinds of things. My younger son just got a condo and he needs all sorts of things - dishes, pots, glasses, flatware. I had such a good time looking and now I can take him and help him get what he wants - housewarming gift from Mom! I also went to the bookstore and sat and browsed and enjoyed looking at many different books and found a good novel and some on sale DVDs. And since it is so hot here I went and had ice cream. I really had a great day and I can say that if you put forth some effort you can lift your spirits. I am alone tonight but I have my DVDs and book and since I am feeling positive about
my day I can make it thru the night OK. I wanted to share this as I have posted so many down and out times and I thought it could be helpful to others who may feel stuck. I think that a lot of my problem was just being stuck and not knowing what to do and not being able to leave my safety net. I hope I have helped some of you and that you can have some success too.
