I did laundry, cleaned off my counters, cleaned litter boxes and opened packages. Today I take my new cat to the vet again for surgery. She has to be fixed. They'll keep her over night. I'll miss her. Later I'll do light housework and keep myself busy. Hope everyone has a good day!

I’ve been down and out the past few days so I’ve accomplished very little. I plan to get moving today.

Plans for today:

1. Run errands
2. Pick up dog from kennel
3. Affirmations/visualization (completed)
4. Work on bedroom
5. Movie night with friends
6. Fresh air and sunshine

Warm wishes to all.

I picked up meds, took out the trash and ordered groceries. I'm tired and a little sad. Will rest for the remainder of the day.

I did not walk yesterday. Today I like to walk if possible. I also am trying to cut down on my food intake. I am eating less. I ate a salad, dumplings, and drank tea last night. Today I had a yogurt, bread, and some tea again so far. I am waiting for dinner which I think will be tofu and vegetables. I am sitting in my parents' house. I fixed this computer. It was crashing so I took off some software programs, downloaded a virus program, and used a spam removal program. It is now working fine. I am happy.


I dyed my hair last week. I was feeling quite old. My mother does not dye her hair but her hair is all white. My hair is gray in front only so it looks funny. I am glad I dyed my hair. I use henna organic dye. It works well.



When I became psychotic, I stopped wearing my glasses. I thought my vision improved but now am wearing my glasses and am glad to see now. I am going to continue wearing glasses.


I am focused on my appearance and health now. I have nothing better to do. I also want to clean my apartment and wash my clothes more often. I am trying to be more clean about everything. I was very dirty before and not washing my clothes. My apartment is a mess still but slowly but surely I will clean it.


I feel that the psychosis has dissipated. I was feeling very strangely for awhile. I don't talk to myself that much anymore and am feeling more in tune with reality.


I want to find a job or several part-time jobs when I feel it is possible. First, I need to focus on recovering though. For awhile I was really psychotic. It has taken me about half a year to recover.


Life is not bad.

Like bpforever1, I will also try to cut down on my food intake. I am currently eating a lot of junk food.
Like bpforever1 I too feel that the psychosis has dissipated. I too was feeling very strangely for awhile. I don't talk to myself that much anymore and am feeling more in tune with reality.

Post Re: Looking for accountability partners to motivate to get things done while depresse

I feel tired today (Wednesday). I was running errands and then went to the cinema yesterday. Was late in bed.

I don't think this is the day to start my new program.

- Load the washing machine
- Clean parts of the kitchen
- Clean parts of the living room
- Take a look at my energy and then decide the next step.
- Remember to do some relaxing exercises in between.

Send my best wishes for each one of you!

Each morning: Swish and swipe in the bathroom.


Monday: Gymnastics early in the morning, (Work in home if time and energy). My priority for the day is Brunch with friends and sometimes volunteer work afterward.
Tuesday: Hiking in the mountains with friends
Wednesday:
Am probably tiered after the hike the day before. Will rest until lunch. After Lunch work in the home for one to two hours.
Thursday: Gymnastics in a group
. After that work in the home for one or two hours
Friday
:Walk in the neighborhood. After that work in the home for one to two hours
Saturday:
Masage 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off, until the whole body has had it's masage.



Each day after lunch I will do Autogenic Training while I use self-hypnosis about being mindful during the day.

Journaling in the evening.


(Work in the home will only be done only on Wedensdays, Thursdays and Fridays, one to two hours each day. That is: three to six hours a week. It is important that I remember that this is all the time that is to my diposition, so I don't get disapointed over too little done.

Evaluation once a week.


I have edited my program. Hope to start to use it (in slow motion for tomorrow, Thursday).


So these are required of me:
Thursday: Gymnastics in a group . After that work in the home for one or two hours

Comments: I will do the gymnastics at home (not in a group).


- Work in home for one to two hours
- Grocery
- Make dinner and eat it


Best wishes to all!
