  1. Holy moly! My life got turned upside-down and I have just now unburied my laptop and got it turned on. After a series of random events, my mom is moving in with me. I've essentially be rearranging my whole house to get her moved in and getting her stuff here. Needless to say, I haven't been thinking about the challenge as much as I wanted to. I'm going to try and finish strong though, and the goals I didn't manage to accomplish, I'll switch over to the next challenge! Whew! I'm glad it's Friday too, this week has been exhausting! I need to sleep in!
  2. Ahoy there. First of all thank you all for the support! So this week started out pretty rough. I thought my depression was going to win, well it was totally winning. I had not energy and was starting to feel mentally foggy. Then this morning I started feeling much better, my mental fog cleared. I don't feel depressed now, I don't feel 100%, but I now feel like I can get there. I have have been doing better with fruit/vegetable consumption. I have journalled once this week, which I plan on doing tonight again. I haven't done great on walking, but now that my fog has lifted that shou
  3. I have been on medication for years, actually. I think I just need my dose or medication adjusted. Yesterday I was seriously considering admitting myself to the Behavior Health Ward at the hopsital. I'd been feeling suicidal for days and didn't see a way out of it. Then today I woke up and my head was way less foggy. I don't feel as dark today. I don't know why sometimes the darkness leaves, but I'm glad to be at the edge of the woods. I also got some advice on how to work on my story and I think it'll really help! My friend suggested using note cards so that I can rearrange and t
  4. Hello there! I'm restarting my fitness journey. This is probably going to be the most difficult challenge I've ever done. I'm struggling with depression and I'm hoping that this lead back into fitness can help me to beat the depression back. I'm glad that I have this community to support me through this. Goals: Either walk Zoey or do some sort of exercise 4 times a week. ----->Go to the work gym once a week so I can get used to it again before winter hits and I can't walk outside anymore. Eat a fruit or vegetable with each meal/snack. Journal 3 times a week.
  5. That sounds like a really interesting concept for a story! Do you have any outline, or just the theme so far? I just have the theme so far. I haven't written a full length story in many years so it'll be an undertaking. Thanks! I will take you up on the brainstorming! I only have the barest bones of an idea so far! On a different note, this is a terrible week! I've been crying a lot. I'm starting to be afraid that I'll never pull out of this funk. I don't know what to do anymore, I just want to give up. I know I shouldn't give up, but I am so tire
  6. Thank the maker for this group! I've been struggling even more than normal with my depression than normal. I've been having more and more trouble just living my everyday life. I feel like I'm drowning. I'm determined to get through this 4 week challenge, and I'm so glad for this group now! Ok! About me! I'm Issa, I'm 32 and live in Montana. I work as an account assistant for the food services department at the hospital in town. I'm single, but I have a dog that is my everything named Zoey and an asshole cat named Shabadoo. I've been off the healthy/fitness bandwagon for a while an
  7. I'm walking about 2.5 miles right now, so the extra half mile won't be that difficult to add in.
  8. I have been here before, but I dropped off for a while. I'm back again, because I am at the end of my rope. I've suffered from depression for as long as I can remember. I've had ups and downs. I am currently suffering from one of the worst downs I've ever known. If I don't make some changes now, I believe I will reach a point of no return. I'll be unable to get back to a place where I feel happy. If that happens I'll be done. I feel alone most of the time. That is part of my problem and why I've come back to NF. I need to be part of a community that can understand what I'm going through a
  9. Week one has gone very well for me! I went to the gym 3 days this week, and did 2 days of yard work. I did 30, 60 and 40 minutes at the gym respectively. I had some watermelon and grapes but no new veggies, just what I normally eat. As for the job search I have a new lead, it would involve moving to Spokane if I get it, but it might be my best shot. Next week I'm going to start on the treadmill and work my way up to running again. See you then!
  10. Thanks! I actually already have that app on my phone! I think I'm going to start by biking though, cause my knees don't feel very good lately.
  11. Ice looked ahead of her with trepidation, she had been off the battle field for so long she forgot how challenging it could be. Having finished her training at the college (at least for now) she knew it was time to get her body back into fighting shape. She wasn't sure when it happened, but it was very clear now that she was in no condition to help in the battle without first training her body to match her mind. She set off in the night to begin she wouldn't return to camp until she was satisfied that she could help win the war. Hello!! So I've been out of touch for awhile, I haven't atte
  12. Very interesting. They did do a study once where they did a similar thing with a group of rats from birth. They had two groups, one group was fed completely a supplement like this and that whole group died, but the other group was supplemented with milk and lived. So its possible.
  13. I've battled depression for many years. At my worse I was laying on the floor sobbing next to my suicide note. I spent a lot of time being anti-medication, not really for others but for myself. I got so very low that I had to get myself help and be serious about it. I got on a meds and had them adjusted until I could function. I had to get them adjusted a few times before we got it in the right place. On top of that I started to see a therapist in order to get out of my self-loathing. I am so unbelievably happy to be able to function from day to day and not want to go throw myself in the misso
  14. I has a cough. It makes my chest hurt :(

  15. If I can't figure out how to zero out my scale it will be shot. Scale also hasn't moved or anything like that.
