I have a dark, defeatists attitude.  I will migrate to the negative view.  I rarely can or will hold on to positive things, I miss out on life's joys and pleasures as I have been in the pit for so long

So, my therapist has asked me on a daily basis to come up with 3 positive affimations.  I have expanded it a bit to include things I am grateful for as well. 

I started to list my three things in my blog, probably still will.  I have found it difficult but really rewarding.  Really really rewarding.  I have to think hard some days and others they flow.

I want to hear your three things.  I want to pass on the change that I have been given from what seems a simple task.

So I will go first:

1) summer is here

2) I love the color green and am surrounded by it.

3) I get joy out of coloring, makes me feel better and distracts me when I need distracting.

 

Okay so what are your three things?

Good idea. Could be useful for me too; I don't exactly have the highest self esteem known to man.

1: I'm making steps to change my life

2: Eating more and enjoying it

3: I don't have any flus!

 

A little more difficult than I thought.

I've done this too and still do it when everything is dark. I called it 'forcing positivity'. Tdoc said 'a change of perspective'.

​We all deserve to give ourselves some positivity from time to time. We're all too hard on ourselves.

I am slowly beginning to clean my own home. 

I can feel my every day emotions returning after years of being apathetic due to C-PTSD.

I am learning to apologise for my inappropriate outbursts and possibly hurting others feelings.

I get to go pick fresh strawberries next week.

 

 I  have been doing watercolor again after years and it helps me express myself.

 

Books. Always books.

Having the kids home for the summer - no morning struggles.

Having the windows open, I love the breezes and the birds.

Having a 28yo daughter who is taking my teenagers off my hands for a week - priceless

​this is a great idea, dragonfly.  used to do this in therapy. let it go. should try it again, as i default to the negative, pessimistic and would probably benefit from forcing my mind more to good things and to gratitude.  today as usual i woke up wishing i was dead. this will be a challenge.

1.) i am caring for myself by eating better

2.) grateful for the cat and wildlife out the window

3.) reaching out, not isolating

My mood might be on the upswing. 

I have a great picture of my dog smiling and I made it the lock screen picture in my phone so I am constantly reminded I'm loved. 

I actually cooked dinner last night.

Hell to the yes. Did you read Sense, Sensibility, and Sea Monsters?

I love my husband.

Though aged, my dogs are both healthy.

My best friend is getting better. Most days, she's OK.

      What questions do you still have that have never been answered?

      I know it's not a competition in any way, with illness. But had a surprise when a friend messaged me to ask how I was doing. I replied &thanked her, said it was really nice to hear from her (particularly because I've been lonely, isolating myself, depression, etc). She literally responded with "Well, I got cancer so I'm sure it's worse than you..."  That's all she wrote, no elaboration.
      What would you make of this reply? I'm empathic, and assume she's hurting or afraid. (btw I don't know if she still has it, or successfully treated already)
      I literally had no idea what was going on and I gave her support, told her I'm here for her for anything if she wants to talk, but in a way, I feel hurt, because of the way people with illnesses always  "one up" and diminish each other, like experiencing one type of illness, trauma or pain is much worse than another?

      What has been your experience with Wellbutrin? Pros and cons? What does make Wellbutrin different from other antidepressants? Does it stop working after a while?

      I find I am always in a rush, I want to get things done, be productive and do not have patience with others.
      Do you want to accomplish things quickly? Do you find you do not have patience with others who are slower?
