It’s been a week now since I started LLP, and I have to say it has been a good week. The last time I had a serious ‘blip’ as I call my more depressive moments was on Sunday when I realised I hadn’t moved from the sofa for quite a few hours.
I have had a few people comment on my posts, which is something I never expected right in the first week! I hope that I can keep posting interesting stuff for you 🙂
I think that having LLP here to write on has helped me a bit in my day-to day life. I have kept journals of my feelings and behavious before (It’s one of the first things that was suggested to me when I went for councelling many years ago) but they never really workd, possibly because I was the only one going to read them so in my mind there was no need to keep it going, as one of the first and major problems with depression is that your self worth is non existant. So if I was the only one reading it, and I really don’t matter as I have nothing to add, then no point writing in the first place, right?
So, one more week down, and a weekend to look forward to, weather permitting…..I have to go through the whole self motivatino thing tomorrow to get out on the bike in the sunshine, and the challenge for Sunday is to actually spend some of the daylight hours somewhere other than the sofa.
