Tips on sticking to it while fighting depression
Monday, January 19, 2015
Friends, I need help.
I know that it sound like a broken record when someone states that they have fallen off the wagon because they are dealing with emotional ups and downs.
I've had the "blues" off and on for years. It hasn't gotten to a place where I need medical intervention, but I've had the "hovering, heavy cloud" over my head and the "sinking hole" feeling. I want to find a natural way to deal with this and I've been told that healthy living can be the answer.
The problem is, I'm wanting to get back on the wagon mentally, but my body is retaliating immensely.
I think stress could be a contributing factor as well. I don't have a structured schedule at work, so that leads to a lot of very early mornings and a lot of later nights, which according to my boss, will not be changing any time soon. I leave work with such stress that I have chest pains and dread going there the next day.
Between the stress of work and having "the blues", as well as having financial struggles and slipping off the structured diet that my doctor put me on...I feel lost. I want so much and yet I can't seem to get it together. I want to feel better so that I can have a family and kick "the blues" to the curb.
So what are my fellow Sparkers' tips for sticking to it while fighting the "blues"?
