My depressed friends do all kinds of activities to keep their brains active: scrapbooking, crossword puzzles, gardening, watching movies, purging the house of all nonessentials, rearranging the furniture, or painting the bathroom.
So I need to do less of what I did today (poking around for stuff to learn about Depression) and more time just doing stuff. I may change what I choose to write about... make the writing part of the recovery instead of just about the recovery.

took meds 150 mg sertraline 450mg bupropion
slept. a lot.
did not take the opportunity of having a day at home from work to do some major hair-brained project like moving furniture from the basement to the kitchen. This took great will power and the fact that I was asleep for most of the afternoon.
