A Not So Good Weekend
BeHapppy118 posted:
Hello there everyone,
I hope that your days are filled with nothing but happiness. I haven't been on here for so long, but I finally noticed that it is helpful to me. I came on last night when I wasn't doing so well and I noticed myself smiling! I was in a better mood after.
I also notice that a lot of you post here almost everyday, don't know if I'm up for that yet..

Just thought I'd say that I had an emotional week. One moment I was happy, but the next moment I noticed myself wanting to cry and also I got so irritated at things. Then the weekend wasn't so good. I wasn't feeling so much sad but that I was unproductive, not wanting to do anything, and that bothered me a little because it bothers my family.

Just trying to have positive thoughts through all of this believing that things will get better. (And they will!)

I'm glad this forum was able to help you last night, I find that it helps me too to feel the support of all my friends here.

You don't have to post every day, you don't have to post at all, but you are welcome to post as often as you like. Lurking is ok too.

I'm sorry your week was an emotional roller coaster. I hope this coming week goes better for you!

Being unproductive is the most frustrating part of depression for me. I can get myself to work pretty much every day but as far as everything around the house, they don't get done. Then when the chores build up, I'm mad at myself for letting it slide. I also deal with the irritability. I go off for any little reason. I hope you are open to professional treatment and start feeling better soon. Best of luck.

Hi again,

I just noticed this post. I think the most discouraging thing is when we wake up and want to go back to bed. It happens to me a lot and I have finally allowed myself to indulge in it but I make a deal with myself. I have to get up early the next day and do something. Anything. And somehow I then go on to something else and many times, the momentum catches on.

Since I have experienced it so many times, I am not as alarmed by it as before. I know that I will get back in the saddle.
It is the guilt part that is hard.

I hope that you will feel a bit better tomorrow. I will check in and see how you are doing.

Yes, it bothers me too. But it's good that you make it to work everyday. That's something. Don't be too hard on yourself. Thank you for your response Jim.

Hello again Thistleblue!

Thank you for your concern. I think I am doing a bit better today. Trying to have positive thoughts.

Hi BeHappy, doing ok, just kind of down but not too bad I guess. I hope you're all right tonight. Take care!

Hello. Glad to hear you are doing ok. I am doing alright I think, thanks.
