I'm determined to get myself better to prove to my soon to be ex-husband that I am even stronger than he thinks I am. He doesn't know his actions have caused my depression and he doesn't know that I'm on anti-depressants. I had a pretty decent nights sleep today without the help of sleeping pills as I have been pushing myself to do a little bit more exercise everyday. I brought a Fitbit to see how well I sleep and also how many steps a day I was doing. My sleep patterns were horrendous which I knew anyway and steps per day were well below the recommended 10k. I preserved to do a few more steps a day and I managed to go for a long walk yesterday. I was exhausted and had the best nights sleep in over 18mths! It's a vicious circle, I'm tired all the time from 2 kids, work and lack of sleep so exercise is the last thing on my mind, however I think I've broken the circle today! I've been having counselling and also doing CBT. I will beat this! Thxs to all the people who read and commented on my last posts! Although I have lots and friends and family who are supporting me, it still feels like I'm battling this alone because they don't understand what is going on in my head. Xx
