Hi Genna,

I'm sorry to see things are not going well for you at the moment.

It seems like you're fighting many mini battles in everything you do and everywhere you go, it seems relentless right now, whether at home, work, socially and even with your GP.

I think you need a reprieve and to try and stay away from the things that are causing you unrest until you can start to gain contol of it. Unfortunately some things are harder to deal with - such as work because you have to earn a living.

Start making a list of all the things that are upsetting you, every single thing and see if you can find alternatives or a solution, for example if you dislike your GP can you not change to another? In terms if your friend, can you not give it a little breathing space and approach them again when feeling a little more positive in the hope that you can work the issue out.

In terms of coming home, eating then retreating to bed, is it because you're tired or because you having nothing to fill the time? Do you have any hobbies? Music is always a good way to help you relax for example.

As for work, can you identify what you dislike and see if you can change the situation, speak to you boss maybe ask them to change certain duties? If it's the people causing you the issues, can't you just avoid them and just act professional around them, eg interact with them only when required. Have you thought about looking for alternative work if things are that bad?

Try and see how many things you can gain control of and change the situation where you have the power to do so.

Take care of you for me.

Hi Genna, half of the problem is solved! You know what is happening and you put it into the words, now let us work on another half, just reverse the above statements:
1) Even tough it is depression I don't bother, I'm raising UP!
2) Everyday I come home, eat and go for long walks. I notice interesting things on the road, and I admire the beauty, abundance and vastness of life.
3) I'm learning to love my work, I'm trying to find out how to make my work more interesting, I'm becoming more creative, I'm finding out the purpose of my life. I'm developing 5 new hobbies which will make my life more happy.
4) I'm learning to smile at strangers, I'm learning to make new friends. I am setting a new goal for me to make 5 new friends each month.
5) As soon as I notice that the mind is thinking bad thoughts, I shift my focus on good and positive thoughts
6) I see my bright future in my daydreams, I visualize myself as a successful man.
