Day 3

I’ll cut to the chase. Day 3 of using my tools to work myself out my current depression state was a bust. I got to bed on day 2 around 10:00, but woke up at 12:30 and didn’t fall back to sleep until 4:30. When my alarm went off at 6, I took care of my dogs and instead of doing my morning routine, I went back to bed until 8. Woke up still groggy and skipped my midday tools too. After work I did make it out for a walk.

Thoughts on day 3:

  • I need to figure out this sleep. I did a lot on day 2 and figured I’d sleep with no problem. I may lump the issue in with eating better?? I did go to bed a bit stressed out. When I woke up at 12:30 I tried listening to a sleep meditation, but that didn’t work. I tossed and turned and finally just got on social media. I know, not a smart move.
  • I have nobody to blame for this other then myself. I chose to not take the extra effort needed today to help me feel better later. I see that and own it.

I’m going to do one more day of this since tomorrow is a weekend and I’d like to see how that may differ. Thanks for hanging with me❤️

  3. I am so sorry you didnt sleep. I have those nights as well and they mess with me.
    How about hobbies? Do you have things you look forward to doing? Reading?
    I have been known to get up and knit until I am back to myself. Even at 2am in the morning. It’s my “yoga” and my safe place.

  4. Also, I understand how unmotivated depression can make a person. Just getting out of bed is an accomplishment. Kudos to you for showing up.

  6. Depression is a horrible place to be. Were it not for the meds Ive taken since 1996, I’d still be there, off and on I suppose. Take good care, friend. ((((Hugs))))💜
