Stop it!



So I've been a little low recently, and another lovely blogger brought to my attention the fact that it might have something to do with a lack of sharing. I've had a bit of a love-disklike relationship with blogging, but ultimately I think it provides me with a focus or a filter that I don't get with anything else. I can condense a day into a couple of lines. A shitty day at work is written down as 'tough day' and like that it becomes not a day of frustration or anger or defeated self-esteem but two little words. I just let it go - unconsciously. So on this steep, dark decline into depression, I've stopped blogging. And I think its made it worse. So I say 'stop the rot'. Or just 'stop it!' as the video says. I'm going to blog for 14 days straight people. Blogging to stop the rot. or Blog the black dog. or Beating the big black dog with a blogging stick. Any other naming ideas?

P.S I'm also going to try a guided meditation each day too - any suggestions?

Bring it ON!! I do know that the longer you leave it, the harder it is to post again. (Like you're waiting for it to be the PERFECT post?) So, please do share, and I hope it does help you to feel better.

Yay :)
Also, I saw this skit on very late night TV and never knew what it was, I've been looking for it for years! Thankyou :)

Yay! It's good to 'see' you back again. Looking forward to hearing about your fortnight ;-)

Good for you!

I'm the same as you - a lot of the time it is a real push to get something positive down on paper/computer/whatever. But I push and push myself and it makes me feel better, it really does.

I suggest Mindfullness Meditation. In particular finding some books or CDs by John Kabbat Zinn (not certain that's the right spelling!)

ah sweetie - I read this blog second ( am a bit behind). depression sucks, really sucks. good on you for sharing and not curling up in the corner no matter how you are feeling. It is the mindfulness course I am doing and I am hoping it will help me along the way ( but I don't expect it to be a fix). It is so hard to talk about your life when it feels like crap but I like the notion of putting it into some perspective with two little words.
