Still fighting against depression one of my symptoms of Schizoaffective Disorder. Seeing my psychiatrist today to hopefully change up my antidepressants. Have hope for better days to come.
I would like to describe what depression looks like for me~
Lack of energy to start or finish things
Difficulty concentrating on my writing
Dark blinders making it hard to see the world as beautiful
Lack of hope
Sad for no reason
It is not situational depression rather a feeling of being overwhelmed with sadness and hopelessness
Hard to keep up with housework due to lack of motivation
Have to force myself to get things done, like this blog.
Here are the ways I am fighting it~
CBD oil full spectrum
Being proactive about my doctor appointment (had to call several times to get earlier appointment)
Do small things to the best of my ability to feel like I accomplished something productive every day
Try to pick up a new hobby but hard to work on it continually so I do it in small increments
Force myself to take a shower and put make up on
Eat healthy and try to walk at least 15 minutes (haven’t succeeded that one yet but hoping soon)
Call on my support, family, friends, therapist, old classmates and pups especially Buttercup my favorite dog who could be a therapy dog if she wasn’t afraid of buildings!
Not give up!
Here is to better days ahead,
