      Just read Bobbi’s post about doing what we can to make our long and sometimes depressing days better. I realize I did that yesterday.

      Yesterday I woke up to pouring rain, feeling down and thinking – I wish I hadn’t made that hair appointment. My husband came and picked me up and after getting a good haircut I felt so much better, then on the way to my husband’s office I stopped and bought a Ralph Lauren plaid shirt for myself – 50% off – this made me feel even better. Then the two of us went to get passport pictures taken – mine was flattering, somehow my eye problem didn’t stand out – wow, I felt even better. Then last night when on the computer I flicked to the Home Shopping channel (which I never watch) and they were advertising an exercise machine. I got hooked and ordered it! I can’t believe I did that but with the good intentions I have to use it – I feel even better than better.

      This morning I got up and made bread to take over to my sister who has just had knee surgery. I will go over to visit her shortly and extend to her some of the support and help she has given me. I feel that today will be a good day.

      As Bobbi says we just have to work at it, sometimes d-r-a-g ourselves to start something but once we get going it seems to trigger other small things that build up to make an enjoyable day.

      So push yourself to do something this weekend and trigger a day that will make you feel grateful for what you have – and smile! SAS

        Hi, uhmm, I’m really having a hard day. Can’t seem to shake this sadness. Guess some of it is fear that whatever I try ultimately won’t work and that I’m doomed to feel this way the rest of my life. Don’t want to put my family and friends through any more…don’t know how much more they are willing to take. Don’t want to end up sick and alone. I know there’s probably not much anyone can say that hasn’t already been said, but I needed to tell someone.
