For me I find that if I make a list of things to do during a day and can actually cross some of them off, it offers some protection against the creeping hopelessness thing. Some days the list starts with "get out of bed". Also helps keep me focussed when the emotional weather threatens to be overwhelming.

Thanks for the advice. I just did it for today. My problem in the past with task lists is that I get so fixated on the list that I never get to the tasks. I tried keeping it short and sweet this time and feel less overwhelmed. I'll keep at it.

it's not advice exactly, that would involve a lot more discussion about what works for you LOL

this is just what works for me.

Right. Still, if I pretend that it was advice, as I did, and it works, then it can retroactively be classified as good advice!

and I get to add it to my "look I actually got something useful done today!" list

Excellent!

Off to the hospital, which is on my list for today. . .
