Struggling w the worst pollen allergies in 25 yrs. So weird. Pollen IgE has been shown to worsen depression in us. Depressed. Coincidence?

Has your depression gotten worse since pollen season started?

I found a great sedentary hobby that doesn't produce anything or cost anything and can be done alone at home:

MEDITATION!

I'm reading "Full Catastrophe Living." I did the first exercise and was dismayed by how my brain natters on and on, just this torrent of thoughts and a new song i like spinning ceaselessly. But i must not judge. I only managed to focus on a few partial breaths. It will take some practice!

I was charmed by the poetry of the instructions for bringing attention to the belly. It said to imaging my belly as a shy animal i have come upon in a clearing in a forest sunning itself on a tree stump!

Excited!

Hugs to all who struggle!

I had a good day in terms of my diet. Ive realy been over eating apparently. Today I stuck to 1400 calories. Especially yesterday- I made my calorie limit but then went out for Mexican. That at least doubled my calories I'm sure.

N3 came over to start working on his rooms. At least he got something done.

I'm far to behind to catch up, Sorry Ya'll. Hope everyone is hanging in there !

I am okay, Tired but ok, Steve is doing okay thankfully , I keep waiting for that other shoe to drop tho.

I found a neat bracelet store ZOX they sell elastic bracelets with positive quotes .. Anyway 10.00 a piece and I got 25% off so I got my daughter and I one that says Perfectly Imperfect... Anyway .. they have lots to choose from all colors and prints.. I like a bracelet I can just leave on 24/7 I can shave that much off my grocery budget.

When I dropped and shattered my phone screen 2-3 weeks ago ( $90.00 fix ) , even with tempered glass, but my Camera has been coming on and off .. well it finally died, So had to upgrade. I am so careful with my stuff!!!!! Im so angry I dropped it. Anyway I have a new IPhone 8 plus coming, Ordered a new wallet case last night, But just another increase of the cell bill.. Grrrrrrr

No problems with my meds, I see no difference nor side effects , well I'm always hotter when on psych meds.

Week 5 of no hot water Steve was able to replace the floor that was under the broken dead water heater, it had been leaking for a long time so he had to replace the floor down to foundation. He thinks we will have have hot water this week... Hes got to build up a wall so the Tankless water heater can be attached and he has to run water lines and gas lines into the things.. I am just forever grateful that its not winter..

Huge everyone, Hopefully I can get back in the swing here soon , I'm working on my painting often, Its a wonderful distraction. I am very glad I bought it.

Hugs all

Meditation has become a sanctuary for me. Do not judge. Just do it.

if I am honest: I think it's going to be a repeat of yesterday

intense pain since 3 A.M

intense feeling of hopelessness since 3 A.M

and no plans at all. I did eat my fruit salad for breakfast though, so even if today turns out to be a complete right off, I have that going for me. I had a healthy start to the day
