Keeping A Positive Mental Outlook

Been on the mend from a bad back for a week and a half.  Today was a good day.  I was able to get outside a few times today and get a little sunshine.  I’m still doing the ibuprofen and ice.  I walk short distances every few hours to break up the boredom.  My back is much better than this time a week ago.  But it will probably be another few days of ice and rest before I’m back to normal.

Fortunately I’ve managed to keep from slipping into prolonged depression during these last several days.  Haven’t had hallucinations or delusions either.  Been playing more computer games and watching more youtube in the last week than I really wanted.  I had to get outside a few times today.  I needed to rework my legs a little.  My back has healed enough that I can walk short distances with no problem.  I can’t do my serious walking and exercise routines yet.  But I do what I can.  I have another chiropractic appointment tomorrow afternoon.  Hopefully won’t need much more.  I can tell the back is much better now.  I see that a return to normal is within sight.

I write about my experiences with mental illness and life in general. I am also currently under going 'lifestyle changes' (I hate the term 'dieting' as it's sounds so temporary) and have lost 70 pounds since spring 2014. I've put my poetry and novel writing on lower priority since I started losing weight and blogging more seriously.
