Taking Care of You, Before Anyone Else

Ever thought you must make more “me” time? Well when you have depression, it is important that you do have time to take care of yourself. Many with depression experience anxiety and panic too, this can be caused over tiny problems, but appear a big deal to them. It is important that these problems are recorded, over-time you will then be able to read over your notes and what you have recorded to see what the problem is and how it has affected you, you may be able to cut this problem out of your life, the fewer problems the better!

If you’re similar to me, I lay awake at night worrying over past, current and possible future problems, I lay awake for hours and often cannot get to sleep. I usually worry about me and other people, some who I haven’t seen or heard from in a while, but still classed as important to me. It is important to make a list of everything I feel, as I too can then cut out unneeded problems. I find that writing lists helps somewhat, in the respect that I will not have to worry about forgetting or getting confused over the details. I often get confused if I do not do this, as my sleep pattern is ruined. It is suggested that every person gets around 8 hours of sleep a night, sometimes I am lucky to get 5 hours of sleep a night, so it is important to keep your worries out of your sleep and take note, although sometimes you cannot keep these worries out of your head, at least you will have expressed your feelings.
