evergrowing wrote:In the beginning I was barely getting out of bed each day and I was sick and tired. All I could bring myself to do was write a list of things that made me feel better, relieved my stress, brought a smile to my face, comforted me. I then picked one thing off of that list every day. It seemed pointless at first but someone I was close to who overcame depression told me to do it. I could see that it helped her.
For some reason, making a small effort each day to do something nice for myself helped me begin to dig myself out of the hole I was in. I began to realize how precious my life was and how much I wanted to find ways to enjoy each day -- even if there was a lot of chaos in my life.
