But I think that it might be a whole entire separate topic…

 

Since I’m back in the mode of fixing me, I might as well add one more thing to that list:

Depression…

I’ve been thinking for a while that I really need to get a grip.  I was poking around on our blog and found the Ben Does Life page.  Also, me now working in a mental health hospital has got me pondering all this again.

I’ve decided screw the discreet path.  I don’t need to be any kind of hush-hush about being all down in the dumps all the time.  We’re all family here and we all know it runs in the family. 

I just need to make a plan and stick to it:

Therapy: That’s a no.  I’m not doing it.  I’ve had therapists in the past, and it just really isn’t my thing.

Medication: Okay.  I’ll do it.  I’m prescribed 100mg of Zoloft everyday. Do I take it regularly? No.  It won’t help me if I don’t take it… everyday, so that’s what I’m going to do.

Endorphines: Yes ma’am, sir! I’m already working on an exercise regimine, and that pumps the endorphines, so that’s one of those two birds with one stone sort of deals.

Routine: Okay.  I’m definatly one of those people who functions well with routine. In fact, if I don’t stick to a routine, my life will turn to utter chaos, so I’m going to do some thinking about how each day needs to be handled, stick to it, and take one day at a time. 

I know that there is more I should be doing in order to be proactive about this, but at the moment I’m not quite sure what, and I do feel that I have a good start.
