I'm feeling really fed up today and doing my best to stop myself from dropping into depression and feeling sorry for myself. It's bank holiday, another day, and the sun is shining beautifully, it's warm and an ideal day for going out somewhere. I am slowly losing weight and need to get more exercise, asked my husband if he fancied going out anywhere but he said no, even just a walk in the local park which has been renovated, looks lovely and is only a few hundred yards from home, but he said no. I thought of going alone but really dislike walking around on my own - that does make me depressed! Then he started pottering in the garden pulling up weeds - which were actually my ground cover plants! I felt annoyed, then realised he was drunk - and it was only midday! Now I'm venting my feelings and trying to hold onto the fact that I am not depressed right now but am unhappy about having no one to go out with whilst living with a heavy drinker...
I wonder whether much of depression isn't like that. Someone asked recently about what we get from the site and one response was about being lonely. I am lonely and not depressed.
What is everyone else doing today?
