Breaking out of Depression.........

Okay here is my short boring story......

I have been suffering really bad for along time with depression and the boredom of my life. I have been down the road with dr.s, maybe not enough because I have heard that it takes time for the med's to work, but that's not what I need right now. What I need is to get back into circulation. So what is there to do on the weekends? I have also been looking to see about any classes I can afford for painting, stuff like that. I used to paint, used to go out, and had a group of friends. But something happened to me and I lost touch. I have been back here a year now, and nothing has changed so I have decided that it has to be me that has to reach out. I used to drink, and somtimes liked to go to the german american club because it was dark and everyone knew me. (I like those places). The modern clubs I won't feel okay until my weight is back to normal, but the dark ones with maybe some pool tables and loud rock and roll or country is fine, I just want to have fun again, maybe a house party or two is fine too.

So, you have read my sob story and if you can give me any ideas I would love it. Thanks for your friendship even if we have'nt met yet. (and oh, if anyone has any ideas about clothes fitting a size 24 for now, please give me some ideas. (the crazier the clothing, the better). Also a great crazy highlight job too. I need a makeover bad!!heheh

Krissy, you're on the right track! We all have ups and downs and it sounds to me like you're taking charge and ready to jump back in. Welcome back to the world.
(I'm gonna try that shower-first-thing-in-the-morning thing, too)

Thanks for all of the support!! yeah shower is a good thing huh....I always used to give the best advice, when your down and in a hole, try to dig yourself out, don't just stay there. :)

Krissy, Good for you for putting it all out there. You are braver than most. I agree that walking/exercise, sunshine, showers, and shopping are good but I think what started my depression was lack of sleep. So make sure you are getting plenty of sleep.

I'm doing better and still have my bad days but I know what it is and know it will pass. Good luck and stay strong and positive and if you want to talk, get out or go for a walk, send a message, I'll join you.

I want to do yoga after I loose some more weight, it's kind of difficult at the moment. I have also thought of getting to a gym with a pool (I love to swim) at a decent rate when i start working. I have heard of nm sports and wellness, maybe I'll check into that. (I also want to get together for some beginner Tarot stuff too, that's another way I can meet others). thanks for the wonderful replies and I cherish them all!!!!!!

I have a friend who is very overweight and goes to a jazzercize class every week and loves it. It must be pretty cheap, because she has a very limited income. I can find out more about it if you're interested.

My friend goes to Jazzersize at 4902 Lomas NE, between Washington and San Mateo, just west of Sunflower Market. It's "Jazzersize Lite" and her classes are on Tues. and Thurs. 10:45 - 11:45. She says there are people of all sizes there, and some really big people. It costs $20/mo., but you can go a couple of times for free to see if you like it. Phone number is 255-2919. She raved about the instructor, who apparently is a doctor, and the friendly folks in the class. I'm not sure of other times it's offered, but I know there are also other locations. Check it out and let us know!
