Thanks for your help.
Fall how long do you stay in chat? I was thinking that I may join later in the day.

Thumbs up Re: Looking for accountability partners to motivate to get things done while depresse

Hi my accountability friends,

I hope everybody is well enough to feel they are on the right path!

I just want to say hello, so you know how I am doing.

I have started with the therapist and feel that he is right for me. Good «things» has come out of that, but also a deepening in depression. I think that has to do with understanding that I still have some «deep things» to work on.

I have made a daily plan and are able to use it some days, other times not. It is something about that you cannot make a plan for when to cry or not when working with hard stuff in therapy. One has to take it as it comes. So I let it come and try to jump into my daily plan when the crying is over.

I try to continue with physical exercise.

I will pup in here now and then!

I send all of you my very best wishes and hope for your progress!

I'm going to actually brush my teeth and take a shower today. Which I don't usually do because I get up late and then rush to get to work on time. But today I woke up early.

This morning I had a friend take my sleigh bed apart so I could clean under it. My dog crawls under it and she had paper plus a few of her toys. I clean it real good and vacuumed.

I cleaned out my restroom tub and swept the floor. I had to go run an errand so I did not get to finish the restroom.

I have a meatloaf in the oven.

Found out why my foot is still infected. I have diabetes. And the infection is raising my blood sugar levels so I've been very sick. I'm on insulin now. We just tweaked my dose. I feel better today. And my foot doctor is adding another antibiotic. So I'm feeling hopeful.

I need to wash dishes. So I'll make that my goal for the day. And I might cook fajitas. Those two things. The rest of the time I will rest and recuperate.

Hope everyone is well.
