I am depressed today. And I am exhausted. I had a doctor's appointment this morning and I managed to clean the litter box. I think I will go to bed early tonight. Tomorrow I want to rest.

Hi Desiree,


You seem to me to be a person that don't give up easy. That talent will benefit you in the exercises I want to present to you. I found a very good video a Youtube for you. I use the same exercises.

The theory goes so: It is impossible to feel anxiety when relaxed. It is impossible to feel relaxed when tense. These are two opposites that cannot co-exist.

These exercises will probably not work at first. I cannot promise you when they will work, but the point is that it will take you about two months to be able to use them at once the anxiety starts.

The exercises have to be done every day (at least in these two months). If you skip one day, just continue the next day as if nothing has happened.

When you do the exercises:
1) FEEL THE TENSION and try to remember that feeling.
2) FEEL THE RELAXATION and try to remember the feeling.

As you continues to do progress, you will be able to recognize when your muscles are tense and since you know how they feel when you are relaxed, you will be able to switch from the tense situation in your body to a relaxed situation. Remember that tension and relaxation cannot exist at the same time.

This does not mean that you always will be able to stop anxiety, but that you will be able to do it often or at least decrease the intensity.

Link to the exercises:
YouTube











Link to the scientific explanation for these exercises at the bottom of the article:
Progressive muscle relaxation - Wikipedia

I wish so much that this will work for you!

- When home again: remember my prayers

After the hike yesterday I was so tired that I went to bed immediately. I was complete exhausted ... It took me more then two hours to be able to climb out of bed again, make my dinner and then rest in a chair. I remembered my prayers, but had no energy to go to church.

Today (Friday) I will only relax, may be I will go for a slow walk if I feel for it. I will remember my prayers and perhaps look at some religious programs at Internet (it is Good Friday). I will relax with a good book as well.

Send good wishes and hopes your way.

I have tried to relax, sat in the sun, read a book, prayed and watched TV, both religious and crime. I still feel tired, but a bit better.

Tomorrow I will try to take things as they come. I need to buy some groceries. I will go to Midnight Mass and then drive to some family for sleep during the night and to share good food at Easter Sunday!


HAPPY EASTER! (when it becomes Sunday).
