What can I do to get myself out of this darn depression? I know why I am depressed. My father died on October 14th last year and my parents (both dead) birthdays were in September as well as their anniversary. They were married for 54 years before Mom died. I know anniversaries like this can be difficult and it is at least in part situational depression. I just seem to be spiraling downward. I keep thinking maybe after October 14th I'll be ok. I even have a vacation to St. Augustine to plan for in December but I am not even joyful about that. I just can't seem to function. I do have 3 goals for today. Do the dishes (dishwasher running), do the laundry (already going) and to clean the bahroom (procrastinating on that one) LOL Any suggestions on how to snap out of this? Is it even possible? I am taking my meds faithfully.
