Update 11/06/08

Not too much to tell today. I felt a little funky when I woke up but once I got out of bed I started to feel much better. It took a little will power to get myself going but once I psyched myself up it wasn't too bad. I made a to do list in my head while I got ready rather than focusing on potential problems I might encounter in my day. The to do list did help. At the end of my plan period, I had just finished checking off everything on my list. That kind of gave me a boost all day because I felt like I had accomplished something and I had managed to stay focused despite the urge to aimlessly multi-task. I was actually kind of proud of myself. I felt a little like the old me.

The day overall was decent. I even stayed after school and did a little work and let some kids work in my room.

When I got home I did a few things around the house. I realized as soon as I got here that I was exhausted. I did a ton of facilitating and direct instruction today and it wore me out. Neverthless, not too bad. A lot of people have been advising me to focus on the little successes and not stress about things that don't get well. With this in mind: today is a good day.

Here's to hoping you are tired in a "good" way and not exhausted in a "bad" way. Dualistic thinking, I know. But I STILL wish you pleasant times... :-)

I am always a little more drained when I have to stand in front and talk all day. I think I need to take some of the success advice though!!!

I literally sit and make a list when I have my 1st cup of java. I only write small tasks, almost like reminders, and then feel great when I can say at the end of the day that I actually got some of them off my list. I learned a long time ago to not get overwhemlmed by humongous tasks and to do lists...keep it simple. Happy to see you doing so much better.

Gotta love the good days!! I think those to do lists really help to keep us focused. If I didn't do a list, I'd be lost. In fact, if I don't do a list, I do absolutely nothing, which makes the depression so much worse.
