> There you have your first paragraph. You should pick up the book "Feeling Good" I believe by David Burns? He gives 10 reasons/categories that our thoughts slip into when we're depressed. It's quite remarkable. Even when you're in bed and don't want to get out, you can journal. The idea behind it is you get everything out and onto paper, which helps to get it out of your head and create space for better thoughts.
Actually I have that book. My brother leant it to me in October 2001 when I first told my famly what was going on with me. I've read about 2 chapters and that is about it. I don't particularily like to read but I've heard so many people recommend this book that maybe I should make a point of having another go at it, even if I read one chapter every couple of days. That shouldn't be 'too' hard to accomplish but since I don't read at all right now, it's probably too much for me to accomplish. That's pathetic. IMHO!!! I should really give it a try though. Now, I just have to FIND the dang thing. That'll be a chore in itself.
