A Touch of Depression

I have been battling a touch of depression lately. I have really had no desire to do much of anything. I am keeping up with my eating plan and I am still exercising 6 days a week. I feel good that I go to the gym- but even the exercise doesn't seem to be helping me out of the funk I am in. The only thing I think about on the way home is taking a nap- which I do when I make it into the house. 
On another note- today at work a few of my co-workers were talking about having drinks with dinner, or when they get home. It was really the first time I didn't feel left out of something. I didn't feel like I was missing anything by not joining in the conversation- it was a pretty nice feeling. Of course, I never underestimate my bodies ability to throw a massive craving on me- but it was a step in the right direction.

  1. I have had bouts with depression and was treated succesfully with meds. Recently I felt it coming on again, mainly due to job stress. Ikept a careful eye on my behaviors and patterns. Luckily it passed.

    Keep taking care of urself, and if needed, see a doc. I am so happy that you had the first feeling of not feeling left out onthe drinking event. Way to go, ur recovery shines bright!!
