Couldn't get out of bed all day. Thanksgiving has come and gone. The sprint to Christmas has begun. Every year is the same as the last. (That's not a bad thing, given the potential for something far worse.)

Woke up feeling down and pissed off. Gradually lifted.

Felt down at work. Anxiety over a combination of 2 issues: The first is my girlfriend - we recently broke up (my fault) but now I desperately want to get back with her; and the second is uncertainty over my work contract, which there is a chance won't be renewed this year, due to my organisation's cost-cutting. I did speak to one of the senior managers about this mid-morning and the things he said alleviated my concerns to a degree, but Iím still worried. A lot of people in my organisation are worried about their jobs at the minute.

Afternoon was similar. Just generally very down. Checked to see if my ex wanted to have dinner tonight or tomorrow but she said sheíd be back from her work too late. Still unsure how this whole thing will play out with her. A lot of uncertainty at the minute. I told myself at lunchtime that whatever happens, things will turn out OK in the end. I do think they will, and this helped me relax a little.

Iíve decided that in the event my (ex)girlfriend doesnít want to continue or my contract doesnít get renewed (or both things happen!), Iím going to go back on Paroxetine. Life will be too hard without it. I'd prefer not to go back on it, but Iím looking at it as a safety net, should things go south.

Got home and managed a good rowing workout which I was pleased about. Then had porridge and Snickers for dinner. Evening was much better than the daytime. Rowing session, hearty dinner, getting some tasks done, a bit of piano Ė these all helped. Managed to get to bed at 10pm too.

Iím going back and forth between being slightly depressed and depressed with SI. I have therapy today and my NP next week so Iíll be in good hands. I just wish it wasnít so darn painful.

Hugs to all who are struggling.

My therapist told me about some guided sleep meditations on YouTube by the Honest Guys. It worked for me last night in winding down and getting to sleep. It was great! They have other meditations as well. Just FYI.

I have some energy this morning and I feel upbeat. I will try to take care of my chores while I'm feeling good. Then I will rest later.
