Mandie, if you have been there before,and pulled yourself out of it,do you remember how you did it before. It is so debilitating feeling depressed it takes all your energy and gives you "the what the hell's, theres no point" for sure. It would be hard coming back from that fantastic holiday to real life, it kinda sux when you know there are so many more exciting things to do.
Maybe you could look into your next big adventure and start planning that, having something to look forward to picks me up when i'm down.
chase away those negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones, it sounds corny but it really worked for me, it is then just repetition of the positive thoughts ,then the negative ones that are sabotaging all your great work will be replaced by the new ones that will carry you forward into the next exciting part of your life.
Your new man, your career and feeling on top of the world again.
small steps are always the starting point for me,just get through today with small practical steps ,like writing down all the things that are great about you, cause I know there are lots
like you care,
your a great listener ,
you take chances,(i wouldnt of gotten on the elephant on your holiday,or the motor bike lol.
you are adventurous and you have a great man, who wouldnt of fallen for you if you were not so fantastic and viviacious yourself..
your hand is getting you down, and once you make a decision about whether or not to have the surgery you'll feel better about it, If you dont have the surgery are there other options or do you stay the same way with your hand. if theres a chance it could get better is it better to take that chance, i dont know, as i dont know all the facts but , i bet you've looked into it because
you are intelligent too..
Mandie i think you are great and I know that the others on this forum do to. they will have lots of great advice to help you feel better,cause thats what we do here, including you, you give great advice..
i hope you find that place for your new man to stay, win tattslotto, your hand feels heaps better,stay on track with your eating and ace your studies,you certainly deserve it.
but if all those things dont happen right away, you are pretty cool just the way you are in my eyes. I really admire you Mandie,life will get better, this is one of those down days that makes the good ones feel so much better.
[no excuses, I can do it!
