    Bad Weekend

    Ugh. This weekend was a bad one for depression. I ate junk food Friday, Saturday and Sunday so that really didn't help my mood. Mostly I stay away from chocolate and chips or burgers. But I went hard this weekend, oh boy. Comfort eating has plagued me my whole adult life. But it always makes my depression worse so I really can't do it 3 days in a row. Tomorrow is another day.

    I'm not coping that well with depression lately. I'm staying home most of the time, and only go out to go to work. I have one friend I meet for coffee or to go for walks. But that's pretty sad that's all I do. Even my cat is looking at me like, really? So I guess one day at a time. But I might have to see my doctor and finally go on some anti-depressants, because I'm crying more lately also.

    Hello Quito and welcome. Sorry about your bad weekend. You may find that you need meds on a part time basis. Take Care,.paul m

      Hi Quito and welcome. It may not seem like much, but meeting a friend for coffee or going for a walk, are awesome efforts on your part.

      I'm glad you're going to see your MD. I think sometimes people think that if they go on antidepressants, they'll be on them forever. Medication of any kind, for any indication, should always be re-evaluated down the road.

      Your cat looks sweet.

          Hello Quito. I'm sorry to hear things have been so difficult. I understand about eating for comfort, I definitely do it too, mainly if I get too tired and/or lonely. Are you still thinking about seeing a doctor?

            Thanks Uni. I haven't yet seen my doctor. I'm worried anti-depressants will make doing my job harder and i still have 18 months to retirement. If things don't improve this summer (when I'll take lots of walks in the sunlight), I will go and see her.

              Quito it can be hard to deal with work and depression. I hope the walks help. 18 months can feel like an eternity, just keep an eye on how you're feeling. My biggest mistake with my depressions has been waiting too long to get treatment.

                I hear you, AJ. I really do. And thank you for the boost. The way I feel right now is pretty bad. I'm frequently thinking about how quick I'd end my life if there was a painless way to do it. And that's hitting the bottom. So I will see my doc this week. I'll post again later this week once I've seen my doc.

                    I hope the doctor visit helps you out, whether medication is involved or not. It can be good just to talk to somebody.
