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


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. :)
