I’ve been feeling better since my last post. I’m not feeling so painful, or tired.
I’ve been trying to do some self reflection on what contributes to my depression. I know that I need to do my best to ensure that I get enough sleep.
I’m not sure that I could have stopped my internal anger about my job situation. I did talk to one of my supervisors. I felt like she heard what I was saying, we’ll see how things play out. So right now I’m putting thoughts of quitting on hold. That doesn’t mean I won’t change my mind in a week or two, just that I am at peace with things for the moment.
I don’t see changing my medication for right now.
The first half of summer was pretty busy. I think I will say no, for at least the time being to picking up extra hours at work. I think that snowballs into me having less time in my off hours for things that are meaningful.
Lastly, I have been reflecting on those that I love. When I feel badly I know I am not the wife or mom that I really want to be in my heart. I am vowing for next week to be more loving and giving to those I care about.
