DEPRESSION

a great day and then “boom”

This was a really great day. Had a good conversation with God (at least from my perspective) .:) I worked out early. Straightened the house. Spent some time with a friend. Fixed a beautiful frittata. frittata 2

Then had a conversation with my mother that didn’t go well. Boom! There went my good mood. She is ninety. She has a good head on her shoulders and is pretty sharp. But today she was confused about something and because she has a severe hearing loss (yes, she has a hearing aid and no she doesn’t wear it at home) a phone conversation with her is almost impossible. She’s a very defensive person and I often feel like I’m walking on egg shells. Not a good feeling. Today she felt insulted because of something I said and was pretty rude.

Then there was something else that’s just too involved to write about in a post. Anyway, my good day dissolved quickly. So what do you do when that happens?

Well, what I’m going to do is eat ice cream.icec cream

I’ve been working out hard and eating healthy but tonight it’s a choice between a healthy body and a healthy mind. I’ve decided a healthy mind is more important and for me that means ice-cream. Bring on those soothing carbs!
