    How are you today?
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    I think Iím doing quite well. I still get the occasional negative thought and worry about the past but in general Iím plodding on. Iím still not enthused about the future but Iím dealing with things as they happen.

    One problem on the horizon is my wife will be moving back home later today and will be here for the foreseeable future. Itís all very amicable but Iíve found it a bit of a strain when sheís about. Iíve asked her to agree to a house rule that we donít rake over the past and hopefully that will help.

    My positive thought for the day is - Iím dealing with things as they happen and my ability to concentrate seems to have returned.

    I know it doesn't feel like you're doing well, but you really are. Step by step, minute by minute if you have to, but you are still moving forward....

    Another quiet day for me. I had a long chat to the local therapy team and theíve put me on the waiting list for counselling but thereís a couple of months until they can help. I guess itís self help and talking to family and friends until then.

    Iím on my way to town for an evening with my brother. Iímlooking forward to a few beers and some tapas, itíll make a nice change from microwaved fare.

    It's good that you're being put on the list - I know it feels like such a long way off, but it really will be worth it. I'm glad you're going out to get something to eat with your brother. Hope you have a really good time.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my evening out yesterday and that helped me start the day in a fairly positive mood. Nothing of note to report for positives or negatives but thatís fine by me.

    My mood is still generally low but not as negative as it was a week ago. I still have a fairly low opinion of myself and canít seem to be enthusiastic about the long term future but Iím dealing with things hour by hour, day by day. It seems as though Iím existing rather than living, treading water rather than swimming.

    Everyone tells me there is a good future out there for me and time will heal my wounds but having failed to deal with my depression for so many years Iím still not convinced this time will be different

    On the positive side Iím still here and still fighting and I recognise I have made some progress since my meltdown.
