Happily my low has passed. I hate the ones where I feel like my body is too tired to move and I find myself staring a lot, but my brain is not nearly quiet enough to sleep. It just amplifies the inability to get away from it.
I am thankful today. I’m thankful my son is doing well. Thankful for my counselor, who I just saw as she is always spot on. Thankful my low didn’t punish me for too long and for my friends & family who have enthusiastically jumped on my bandwagon for tent city. I’m so happy to say, between everyone’s donations, we now have so much stuff!
We’ve collected: bottled water, protein bars, baby wipes to clean up with, blankets, hand knitted scarves, hand knitted hats, fuzzy socks, a couple of the big bags of fruit (apples & oranges) and a couple of variety packs of chips. I have way more than I expected.
The weather turns cold tomorrow, so I’m hoping we beat the cold front by a few hours.
I thankful that I have something to turn my attention towards today, so that I am not able to hang with Depression.
