So Far a Busy Tuesday

Good Afternoon, World!!! It is early Tuesday afternoon and so far I have done a lot today. One of the first things I did today was work of my mindfulness workbook. I started the first chapter which is on Fear and Mindfulness. I didn’t finish the chapter as I had to get go to get to my therapy appointment on time.

I showed my therapist the coping skills box I made per his suggestion. I also share the paper I wrote. He was impressed by both the box and the paper. More so that I was willing to do both. He now realizes that therapy homework will be beneficial to me and will think of assignments for me to do starting next week.

Another thing that happened today was that I found out that I have a job interview at a community mental health agency for a peer position next Tuesday. This will be a part time job which would be so much better for me than a full time job. I hope I get the job I am interviewing for next Tuesday.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!



Monday Afternoon Ramblings

Good Afternoon, World!!! Now that I am home, I can relax. I, overall had a good day. I of course went to art group and had a great time. I enjoyed myself like I usually do in art group.

I am glad I went to art group as well as day treatment because it helped with the isolation and depression. If I didn’t go today, I would have been home by myself not reaching out to others.

Now that I am home, Junior came over and is going to be making spaghetti for dinner. We are going to have a couple of friends come over for dinner. Having people come over is going to be a good thing for me. It is good for me to see friends to help me with the depression and isolation.

I should go help Junior with dinner. Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day. Peace Out, World!!!

Combatting Boredom & Isolation

Good Morning, World!!! I am bored as I sit here in day treatment. So, I decided to blog. I know if I was at home I would be isolating and bored. Isolating is not a good thing when depression in acting up. Coming into day treatment to fight isolation is the best bet for me and my depression symptoms despite being bored.

Plus, I have art group this afternoon. I am looking forward to art group as always. For me art helps me express my emotions. Emotions that can be extremely intense for me. Intense emotions is why art is so great for me.

The weather in Seattle is beautiful today. It is suppose to get into the high sixties or low seventies. I hope it does get into the seventies as I love warmer weather. Warm weather is absolutely fabulous for me and my mood.

Thank you for reading. I hope everyone has a great Monday and work week. Peace Out, World!!!

A Goodnight’s Sleep

Good Morning, World!!! I actually got six hours of sleep last night. I am thrilled that I got that much sleep. I know six hours of sleep may not seem like a lot of sleep but for me it is. Sleeping six hours is a good thing.

As much as I am excited about getting so much sleep, I woke up depressed. Waking up depressed makes me acutely aware on how vigilant I have to be today. It is not fun waking up depressed but being diligent about what I need to do to make sure I don’t make it worse.

One thing I’ll do to not make it worse is attending art group. Going to art group will help me not isolate as well as being able to expression myself. I love attending art group.

I need to get going so I can do my morning routine. Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!


A Relaxing Sunday

Good Evening, World!!! It is a beautiful day in Seattle. I have had a pretty good day despite dealing with depression. As stated in a previous post, I went to the park and read. I enjoyed myself and the weather.

Now that I am home, I will continue to read. Reading appears to be helping me a great deal as of lately. Reading is also something I enjoy immensely. For me it helps fight off depression when I am able to concentrate and thankfully, I am able to do so.

Something else that I will be doing now that I am home as well is listen to a podcast or two. Specifically, one on philosophy. I am enjoying the podcast a great deal and learning lots of awesome stuff I didn’t know before.

Everything I am doing today is helping me with my recovery. Working on my recovery is something that means the world to me. If it weren’t for my recovery I would not be blogging.

Thank you for reading and Peace Out, World!!!

Sunny in Seattle Does the Depression Good

Good Afternoon, World!!! At this moment in time I have laundry in the washer. I realized that it needed to be done. For me I rather get the chores out of the way so I can enjoy the rest of the day.

Despite having laundry in the washer I have enjoyed the sunny weather already by taking a nice two mile walk. A walk that did me good with the exercise and the sun. The sunny weather is quite helpful to fighting off depression or at least for me it helps.

After my laundry is done, I plan on taking another walk. This time to a park. I’ll take a book with me to the park to read in the nice sunny weather. There is something cool about reading in a park on a nice sunny day. Too bad its not warm to go to the lake and read. It would be a little chilly for me. I do know it will warm up this week to be able to do that.

I got to go and check on my laundry and put it into the dryer. Have a good Sunday. Thank you so much for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Plans to Fight Off Depression

Good Morning, World!!! I am thrilled to have 300 hundred followers. Yes, I realize I posted a really short post about this already but it is a big deal to me. It’s a big deal to me because it means people are actually interested in my blog.

As I think about what I am going to do for the day I noticed that my depression is trying to ruin my day. I am bound to not let the depression ruin my day because I have plans to make it a lazy and relaxing day. For me depression can easily ruin my day I today I am setting my mind to not let it do so.

One of the things I’ll be doing today to make it a good day for me is reading. Reading has been a great go to coping skill for me as of lately. Being able to concentrate on reading is a huge deal for me as it has been difficult for me to do until recently.

Another thing that I will be doing is listening to podcast. Specifically a podcast on philosophy. I have been learning a great deal about the topic of philosophy and realize that I it is a subject that I enjoy. A subject that they would have taught when I was in high school.

Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful Sunday. Peace Out, World!!!
