This is a problem for me when my depression or severe anxiety strikes. With chemotherapy I am happy on days when I can get dressed and come here and sit in my office and talk with the members of HealingWell.
I will write down reminders for what I would like to accomplish each day and when things are really tough my reminders are truly basic:
1. Get up and make my bed.
2. Take shower and wash hair.
3. Eat well balanced meals today
4. Spend time answering emails and working on HW ( 1-2 hours)
and the beat goes on..........................
These are the days my "Get up and Go" got up and went...without me!
These are the days I cry and wish I could turn back the clock to a time when I never even thought about energy but ran from sunrise to sunset.
Letting go of the fact that I can not expect to feel that way ever again is sad but it is my reality so I look for the good in each day and give myself permission to shed some tears.
Thinking of you and hope your low mood lifts.
