Fighting depression again…and winning!

Dear readers,

The depression monster has been hovering over me since my hospitalizations and the holidays. Recovery from gallbladder surgery and complications has been slow but steady.

I actually have been getting back to the treadmill and yesterday did a mile. Mind you last year I was doing up to twelve miles a day until I got bursitis in my bursa (hip pain) and didn’t walk at all for several months, then got back to 3 miles a day and now doing one really tires me out.

But rather than letting this depress me further, I am going to look at the bright side that everyone has to start somewhere and that is what I am doing.

I would like to swim. I’m going to say it again. I would like to swim. This is just one of my goals this new year and hopefully will do so soon. Yesterday I spent time in the sauna and it was great!

I’ve also been having at least five servings of fruits/veggies a day for three days now. Now I am working on portion control and having less sugar. I don’t want to make too many changes at once so I am taking three days of a new habit and then adding to it.

Schizophrenia is at bay. No delusions right now thanks to the GoTerpy CBD oil I take along with my medication routine. This is awesome!

My other goal for the new year is to get back to going to confession and mass again. Been fighting some vices which are embarassing but we will just leave it with the fact that the sacraments of the Catholic Church are powerful and provide much needed grace to over come these vices.

So just to get this out there, my new habits I am forming for 2019 are the following, eat 5 fruits/veggies every day, eat less sugar, walk as much as my body can handle every day eventually working up to an hour a day, getting back to Mass and all the sacraments and to enjoy life once again.

Hope all of you are doing well.
