Photo-a-day 52/365 Feeling good mood therapy

52/365

I've started working through this book in an attempt to get to grips with the mild depression that has plagued me for years.

Discovering that there is a name for my problem (dysthymia) and that it is a form of depression and it's not just that I have a naturally gloomy nature, I decided that enough is enough and I need to do something about it.

I've always just put up with it until recently. While I was working, it wasn't such a problem because it doesn't stop me enjoying things if there are stimulating activities going on around me, but it's become a more serious problem now I'm only working part-time from home and just don't get to meet people like I did before.

I've been procrastinating badly on a couple of assignments and generally spiralling downwards into serious gloom. I really have no idea what to do regarding finding more work and at the moment I lack the get up and go to search for or create any.

The book was recommended by someone in a comment thread and I thought I'd give it a try.




PS Apologies to those who like to keep their books in pristing condition. I'm afraid I'm pretty horrible to mine. :)
