Hi, Yes, at week 4 I got my trash and recyclables together in the afternoon and brought them to the top of the driveway, I even picked up the litter in the street around where I live. So, when I got home in the evening I just moved everything about 20 or 30 feet to the edge of the curb. It is 11;15 am now and my trash is gone. I know with my ongoing depression even though I take a anti-depressant the summer weather and season has just done alot to leave me without energy to get things done. I am so glad this group is here; it helped me to push myself some when I needed contact with someone to hear of my simple problems.

Hey there, we like to hear good news. I hope that you are proud yourself for getting this done. It may not be the world's most difficult problem, but anything can become a huge issue when we are depressed, and forcing ourselves to take care of thing is often difficult. I don't even know you and I'm proud of you. I've found that most of the time when I can make myself do a little bit, the next bit becomes easier and after ahwile I no longer have to think before speaking. I go thru periods of depressinal paralysis when I can't make myself do anything at all. One example: I get (thank the goddess) a lot of benefits from the county, state and federal governments, and I generally do not even think about filling in my forms until a day or two before the deadline for each.So far I've managed to get things done, and even in school, I did my best work by letting it all wait until it was due and then, if necessary, write out exactly what has to be done and when, and I do not look at what I've come up w/ consciously, but the subliminal message is wherever you put up what you've written.

Keep up the progres! And thanks for sharing it w/ us.

Peace,

Sylvia

Rexkz that is great that you were able to do that. With Depression sometimes it is so hard to get motivated to do things. Taking it one step at a time surely does help and this sounds like a great first step for you. Congradulations!
