I have also recently had depression and my therapist (CBT) has given me some good worksheets to work on. One of them is a Weekly Activity sheet, which, you only fill in the NEXT DAYS' activities. By doing this, it structures your days not too far into the future AND you can add in appointments, meetings etc. But it must be a mixture of work rest and play. For instance, I structure when I go to the gym (just to get stamina back, not running marathon!) and then structure in rest for the next day (as I know I will be shattered!). When there are tired days, I listen to a talking book or listen to a relaxation CD when lying on my carpet or in my bed (doing this feels like you are giving yourself permission to listen to your body and not worry about things you cannot do/should be doing). You can look back on these sheets and see what exhausted you and what worked in keeping you active and busy. I myself have also found a sheet to complete for pain/fatigue as well. Over the weeks, you can look back on the completed sheets to see what causes you more pain/to tire more easily. It is really eye-opening. If you want to look at these sheets, go to getselfhelp.co.uk Website is great itself (have a look around) but click on the "Self Help" icon on the list on the left hand side and this will give you all the sheets - FREE. There are downloads as well. I have my brother doing the Weekly Activity sheet as he has just retired and at a loss what to do. It has changed him dramatically! It has changed my attitude to the condition and, more importantly, how I react to it. Please let me know if you try this and how it worked for you.
Best wishes for a happy New Year xxxxx
