Two months ago I wrote a blog called "Keep Calm When You’re Feeling Blue". In the blog I indicated ways to deal with stress and depression. I had to re-read the blog and am currently going through all the coping mechanisms because my depression has gotten the worst of me...again. My birthday is in a few days, Christmas is next week...and all I'm doing is dwelling on the past, the future, and life. Stressing on the littlest things---Why?? Why do we do this to ourselves?? Why is it that women with PCOS are ALWAYS depressed? I swear, it's like the great depression up in my body. It's not fair! I hate being depressed all the time. It's come to a point where I want to talk to my endo about it and see if she can prescribe something for me. Now...I'm not one to take the easy way out, especially when it comes to my health. I'm not one to rely on meds to treat my problems (face it--I WONT even take Excedrin if I have a migraine!) ..But something's gotta give...Can I have some feedback from my fellow cysters!? How do you gals deal with PCOS related depression? Do you take anything? How do you cope?
On another note...January 1st is right around the corner and along with my constant weight loss goals (Which are always a given)...I've added a few more goals to my list
- - Get out of my comfort zone...expand my "Friends" list and get on more dating websites in hopes to find Mr. Right
- - Focus on myself. Set aside some more "me" time and love myself a bit more
- - Save a bit more money each week.
- 1/3 of my pay goes in the bank, the other for me to live during the week, and the last to pay my bills. Going to try saving more in the bank to hopefully move out of my parents house within the next year or two. Living on Long Island is so hard for our generation to live on our own. Prices on everything have skyrocketed, and you can't get a decent home out here for less than $350,000. (HENCE WHY I'M STRESSING.)
Things will work out--just have to give them time.
I probably wont be blogging till after the holidays, so I'd like to wish ALL of you and your families a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanza and happy healthy New Year! God bless you all :)
