small steps, good - better- best

Wednesday, November 07, 2018

My depression and anxiety are really high right now. I am not making good choices, but I have to admit even my not good choices now aren't as bad as choices that were everyday in my past. I am not eating a box of donuts or anything, maybe a few fun size halloween candy. I am not going ice cream crazy, I even managed to not eat the cake at my daughter's awards ceremony at school. I may not have gone grocery shopping and we may be eating out more than normal, or grabbing convience food but I haven't been getting large sized and less fast food more deli type (is that really better? I am not really sure, but feels more like real food) today I passed uip fast food breakfast on my way home from dropping kids at school and made breakfast at home with what we had. These may not be the best choices but they are better choices than ones I have made in the past. I am trying to look at what I want (but isn't a good choice) and say ok what is one step better? Is one step better a doable choice? Somedays I can even think of a few steps better and make that choice, sometimes the answer is no, I am to depressed to take the extra step. As long as no doesn't become the cop out answer, I am ok with that right now until I can get back on top of this.

    You can do this! As someone who has done battle with depression and anxiety, making ANY choices can be paralyzing. I pray that you have a professional helping you work thru this. You CAN come out on the other side with great skills to share!
