Just Another Attempt

GarySo here I am again vowing to start blogging again. We’ll see. Trying to work on me now. Doing the 16:8 Intermittent Fasting, lost 2 pounds the first 3 days. It’s a good reset for me and tests my willpower. In my work my willpower is tested daily, the willpower not to just explode is always there. I need to work on self-help cuz no one is going to do it for me, dammit.

Reverse moving. So in order to clear the crap in my house, I am packing like I’m moving, weird yes, working? Yes. I am sorting and keeping only things I need or that mean something to me. I have a long way to go and the house needs major work but it’s working. The less in the house the better and the more empty surfaces¬†the happier I feel.

Relationship? There is something but I’m not sure I would call it a relationship. It works for now. I’m not interested in anything other than what it is.

Kids good.

Pets, annoying. I have Gary the dog who tests my patience on a regular basis. Ozzy the cat who likes to get the dog in trouble by teasing him thereby he attacks and gets sent to detention.

That’s my story….for now. Stay tuned.

Just Another Attempt

Another post about depression

I am full on in it, I am in a funk. My depression is fighting the boundaries it’s been given by meds and is in full on attack. I’m certain the time of year has a lot to do with it. It’s cold, I don’t want to move, it was the holiday season, I don’t want to participate. I’m eating for three I think. My brain is fuzzy and all I want to do is sleep – which if you know me you know sleep is also not my friend except when depression is winning, then I manage to sleep..with some help from the other meds sometimes. I make so many plans and then have no energy to do them. This is what depression can look like. Did I mention it makes your body physically hurt all the time?¬†Nasty bugger.

What to do? I dunno. I survive it every year or twice a year. Carry on, gain about 10 lbs, and just miss out on a whole bunch of fun things I could be doing but instead, I sit on my couch.

I am working with essential oils and now is the time to put them to the test. My depression is chemical so what I go through now is a mental thing I’m sure. So Cher’s infamous words “Snap out of it” should be all it takes. I should get on the treadmill I know that works, will I? Probably not, it hurts it takes effort I’m cold I just want to sit here. Lame excuses.

So what is this post about? Whining of course. No seriously if I put it out there, acknowledge it maybe it ceases to be the controller that it is. Wish me luck, I wish you the most wonderful of years!
