Hi Chloe, Karen, Pamela and Everyone,
Thank you once again for your delightful messages and encouragement. Hopefully other people reading this thread may feel welcome to add their own comments, or just continue to read on.
Last night I put on a Dance exercise DVD I had not watched before. My goodness me! Once again I could not tell my right from my left and had no idea what my arms were supposed to be doing, let alone which direction my feet were meant to go.
It was hilarious! At least I was moving! Than the lady on the DVD said she was going to speed it up a little! I thought she was going really fast in the first place. I looked for my Yoga DVD but couldn't find that safe place I had put it.
While at the craft group yesterday, there were some books and magazines the library had donated to the group and were all free. I picked up a couple of quilting and patchwork books, another craft I enjoy but have not done for ages. Need to go and find "Motivation" hopefully the books will help!
Today I am planning to leave an hour earlier for the Op Shop so I can go for a walk in that town in a pretty park, so won't be on the forum for long.
Later on I have an appointment with my Employment Lady and tonight I will need to do some study.
I will try to find ways to relax myself while I am studying as I am not enjoying it much at all. I will take a break each hour, have a little wander around outside, look at the stars and then come back in feeling a little refreshed.
Pamela, we have only ever had pet cats, I would love to have a dog actually, my husband dislikes them with a passion though. When I think of cuddling the "black dog", I certainly don't have a vision of a snarling German Shepherd in mind! Ha. Ha. Even though that is how depression feels sometimes!
Right, time to have breakfast, prepare my lunch to take, get my sandshoes and make sure I have plenty of time for that walk this morning!
Wishing you all a day where you manage to find ways to overcome your depression, fighting it, embracing or cuddling it!
Cheers all from Dools
