    I had a super lousy mother's day & am depressed today also. It just suc_ s the life out of me. I was too depressed to exercise, but I will try to do that today.

    I am sorry :( I hope you will find the motivation to start an excercise today. I know that feeling of not wanting to move, not seeing the good it will do.

    I am finding that being outdoors helps me a lot. I love to hang out clothes but when I am in the house it doesn't seem like a fun thing to do. Then once I go outside, I am so glad I did.

    If it is a nice day where you are at, try going for a short walk.

    For years and years, I used to force myself to get out of bed and out of the house. So strange, I KNEW that once I got going I would be just fine but that knowledge had to be pulled out of myself every morning. It had to convince me every single day. I loved school and my jobs but I still could not get going in the morning. I would wonder if I should just drop out of school or quit my job because I was too depressed to deal with moving in the mornings.

    I would tell myself that if I got to school or work and still did not feel I could go further, then I would go home. I never made that return trip home. But even so, it was still a daily battle to get going, to find a motiviation to move.

    I hope will feel better this afternoon and evening.

    I am sorry it was such a bad day. Definately find something that you like to do today, it will help you get out of the dumps, most days anyway. Many hugs, and maybe exercising will make you feel a little better.

    I think being lonely has a lot to do with it, I didn't get any flowers, and difficult child bad mouthed me as usual. I dreaded the day before it even began.
