    MaepleSyrup got a reaction from Thisisme373 in To everyone with depression.   
    I just wanted to take a moment and tell you all that I am so proud of you for waking up to another day. I know it may be hard and I know you all are struggling, but what matters most is that you survived another difficult day- know why?
    Because you are strong. You have managed to fight those depressive thoughts and managed to wake up to another morning. I want us all to be proud of each other for still being here and not giving in to our suicidal thoughts. You all deserve better days and better lives, but don't forget how strong you are for facing your own battle.
    Sometimes, it may seem like you are waking up to the same morning or same day, but just try to believe in that one special day where everything changes. It's almost like war- there's almost no way to determine when the battle will end, but there will always be an ending. That day will come. Just keep it in mind.
    I wish you all the best day/night, and again: I'm so proud to see all of you who make it past each and every night. Every day you wake up to is another yesterday succeeded!
    Keep your heads up! You got this 🙂

    The protestors that want freedom and to lift up quarantine. People who deny this pandemic and claim it as a hoax. I get people don’t have jobs and it’s tough being at home all the time, but if you want this gone, then don’t go out of your way with groups of people and potentially spread it to your friends and family in the process. It’s truly not worth it.

    Hello @crewneck! So glad to see you reaching out 🙂
    Im so sorry to hear this. I know how it feels, seeing everyone move on or go up higher in their position while you remain below.
    While I’m doing much better now, some things that really helped was not being so hard on myself and putting my thoughts into other things and not keep them bottled in. Journaling has really helped with this, especially if you’re struggling with your thoughts and can’t seem to vent to someone or take them out on something.
    Crafts really help keeping my mind busy. New hobbies and picking up on new skills might help keep those thoughts at bay.
    As for future, I at least have a long term plan sorted out. Something I want to do, and I’ll reach there when I reach there. Remember you are still young and you have time left to find your career path or what you want to do.
    Maybe start out with what you enjoy doing. Do you like crafts? Working with animals? Do you like dogs? Or do you have a history of assisting the elderly?
    Id say start with that and see what appears most appealing/fitting to you, and something you’d still see yourself enjoying or at least not mind doing 5-10 years from now.
    I really hope this helps. Please never hesitate to reach out or update us here in the forums 🙂

    Gum Chewers... people who chew gum and then when they are done with it they throw it in the waste paper basket  without wrapping it in a tissue or a small piece of paper.. or the wrapper that it came in (or worse when it ends up on floor, rug or the sidewalk.). There is no concern that this is just a giant spit ball of Wrigley's or Big Red.  It's so rude, ill mannered and a blatant disregard for the environment and the people around them.... or people they don't know because it's on the sidewalk where someone stepped on it.... 
     
    Anyway... that's my rant for the day...

    Yes, there are those possibilities... my gym has gone virtual and has suggested options along these lines, as well as streaming workouts and classes.
    I'm not a bodybuilder or gym rat by any stretch, but there are some things that are tough to make up. The bench press is a good example: If I don't do it for a week, I'm already visibly weaker. It's been well over a month now, so it should be "interesting" to see how far I've gone down if/when the gym opens up again.
    I'm just wondering how the actual bodybuilders and gym rats are coping if they have no access to equipment. This must be far more serious to them.
