Today is a Good Day

I slept better last night.

Woke up and went for a specialized physiotherapy / massage session.

Came home, ate some lunch and watched TV.

Played with Bamboo.

Made some Cantonese style dessert with egg and milk.

Read a few pages of Carl Jung’s thoughts on dreams and unconsciousness.

Ate my dessert.

Talked to my bears, and rearranged them in the Bear Room.

Now I am writing this.

So, despite being assessed to be in mild to moderate depression recently by my shrink, today was a good day.

We can have good days too.

Time for a nap.

    Hey noch noch.
    I too had gone through depression a couple of years back . I quit my job because of it. I got myself treated and have been now working for the past 1 year. However a recent promotion has brought back those feelings of inadequacy. I am in touch with my shrink even though I am trying to be strong. I stumbled onto your blog and look to forward to reading more such articles

      HI Kashif

      Good to know you are back at work. I also get these feelings of inadequacy. Have you heard of the impostor phenomenon? I also always feel i’m not good enough. So you are not alone. It takes time to identify the unconscious thoughts behind, which I’m trying to do

    I am so glad to have stumbled on your website. I know I suffer from depression but am in deep denial. Robin Williams’ recent suicide because of depression just did it for me. I know I had to find some answers why I am so cagey, achy, and angry at the world at times.

    Thank you, Noch Noch for all the insights and sharing your journey! I am a fan!
