More Depression

I hate writing negative posts, but I figured I write this one rather than write nothing at all.

I’ve been suffering from a bout of depression for several months.  It’s been a recurring problem in my life, but I thought I had it beat about three years ago.  I was wrong.

More recently, some not-so-pleasant things have happened in my life that further add to the depression.  What has this led to?

  • I’m pretty sure my weight is up.  I haven’t actually weighed myself.
  • My eating was out of control until this past weekend.  I have pulled it back together.
  • I’ve fallen behind on many things I need to do at work and around the house.
  • I’m not riding the bike enough.  This week was Ride Your Bike to Work Week, yet I did not ride to work a single day this week.  Then again, I was only at work for three days due to my Washington DC trip.

The only real positive thing is that I have been successfully fighting off the urges to overeat.  I’ve been craving pizza and beer, but I’m cooking at home and leaving beer out of it.

  1. We seem to in a similar place. I’m not to depressed but certainly blue. And NO miles. Ride Sunday? Endorphin needed?

  2. It will get better Dave. Keep your chin up. I myself have actually been doing alot better with my depression. Most of its actually due to my exhubby I told u the story. But anyways keep your mind positive and think of the wonderful wife you have now and soon enough it will be all better!

  3. I’m so sorry to hear that you have been down, Dave. You have been through it before, so you know that the depression will lift. I hope you are feeling better and more hopeful very soon.

  4. Sorry to hear it … I prescribe a nice long bike ride to get your mind off things. Riding may not cure all, but it does help!

  5. I’m with Dr. Apertome — a long, leisurely ride sounds like just the thing.

    I hope things will start looking up soon. Depression sucks 🙁
