Good Evening, World!!! I am still feeling a little meh however the feeling is slightly getting better. Having depression sucks shit but if I acknowledge the depression I know what to do to help myself through it. At least when it is in its milder form for me.
When I realized I was feeling depressed, I hung out with my family. We had waffles for a late breakfast. We also watch a baseball game on television. The team we were rooting for won.
When I got home I worked on my Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) homework. I also read ahead for the next group. DBT has helped through some really difficult times. Times where I could have given up but didn’t because I used my DBT skills.
After doing my DBT homework, I read. I read for about an hour. Reading helped me get out of my head. I read a Star Wars book that I am enjoying quite immensely.
Good Afternoon, World!!! As many American’s may know is that there has been another school shooting. This time in Texas. We need to have better and stricter gun control here in the United States.
I have been reading a great deal today. It has helped not really deal with what is going on. The school shootings are just too much for me to handle. I can’t even imagine how the students and families are dealing with it. That is why I have been reading my Star Wars book today.
Thank you for reading. Have a great weekend Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! I am still depressed but I am making plans for the day. Plans that will help me get out of my own head. Getting out of my own today will be a good thing as my depression is acting up slightly at the moment.
One of the things I plan on doing is reading. I, of course will be reading my Star Wars book. I am immensely enjoying the Star Wars book. I am looking forward to what the next book in this trilogy of the Star Wars book.
Like I mentioned in my last post my therapist is taking a vacation day so his supervisor is going to be doing my check-in with me today. She is an extremely nice person. In fact she likes that I idea that I have a check in on Fridays and Mondays about my weekend plans and how those plans went.
I think I am also going to be doing my workbooks. Specifically, my recovery workbook that focuses on strengths and recovery. Recover from a mental health challenge. I know I have recovered from one as it is only one of hand full you can recover from but I believe with my other diagnosis I can have the symptoms subside to where I can say I am recovered for me.
Some sad news now. There has been yet another school shooting. This time in Texas. They are are saying that an “unconfirmed eight people are dead.” Why do these shootings keep happening? This is why we need gun control in this country.
Thank you for reading, Have a wonderful day. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! I got sleep last night which is good news. The bad news is I woke up with depression. Yes, I know I am up early but I am happy I got sleep. Waking up depressed is no fun.
I am not sure what I am going to do today. My therapist will be out of the office today so I will be checking in with his supervisor. His supervisor is a nice woman. I will be checking in with her over the phone for a fifteen minute check-in.
I am most likely going to be reading. I am going to be reading my Star Wars book. I make it a habit to read every day. I love reading. I am also going to be reading a book or two on Buddhism. One of those books happens to be Buddhist Scriptures.
I need to be finding things to do to help combat this depression. For me having plans helps me with fighting off the depression. I am hoping I can talk with my therapist supervisor early so we can come up with a plan.
Thanks for reading. It is very much appreciated from my end. Peace Out, World!!!
Hello, World!!! I am now home from the Emergency Room. As I mentioned in my last post I self harmed and took myself to the Emergency Room. I punched a brick wall out of anger and frustration. I didn’t break any bones.
I am going to be reading one of my books. Not sure which one yet. No, I haven’t finished my Star Wars book but I will finish it soon. I am thinking about reading my Buddhist Scriptures.
I think I am going to go read now. Thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! I still haven’t had any sleep. I have been keeping myself busy as being busy helps me deal with what I need to deal with.
One way I have been dealing with things is working on my workbooks. I have been working on both my LGBTQ and my recovery strengths workbooks. Both workbooks are helping me with my recovery with a mental health challenge as well as accepting myself as me.
I have also been reading. I have been reading my Star Wars book. I am almost done with it. I hope that when I am done with it that I will remember to do a book review on it. I love to read.
I have also been working on a jigsaw puzzle of the Titanic while listening to a podcast about philosophy. Doing puzzle and listening to a podcast helps me retain what I heard on the podcast.
Hello, World!!! It is midnight in my corner of the world and I have a lot on my mind. Some things are serious while other things are just normal everyday worries. All the things on my mind are not what is keeping me up.
I am up because I am wanting to and am watching The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Watching something that has humor such as The Tonight Show helps me be able to sleep at night. Being able to laugh before bed has something helpful in it and am grateful that I have learned this about myself.
I have been reading Star Wars: Heir To The Empirebook. I am really enjoying it. In fact I am nearly finished with it. I hope to do a book review on it when I am done with the book. The cool thing about this book it is part of a trilogy.
I think I am liking the fact that I am looking into Buddhism. It is giving me a hope and a faith I didn’t have. I am not saying I didn’t have hope; I am saying I am having a new found hope. Having a faith in any particular religion helps folks with their recovery.
Thank you for reading. I will now get back to watching The Tonight Show. Peace Out, World. Goodnight.
