Feeling down and there are days I feel as if I just want to sleep and forget about all of this. Work has been very difficult and I find myself having times that I feel like I’m failing at everything. I feel hopeless at times. I know I should be getting out and walking but I can’t seem to move right now. I want things to get back to normal but they aren’t.

I can so relate to your post. I am like this every day. No one can beat me up like I can and there is so much I need to do. Laundry is the main one for me. Getting out for walks would be nice if the weather wasn't SNOW these past few days lol. I do the best I can one day at a time and some days I do sleep. One thing I do that I enjoy is going for a coffee. I drive there (social distancing/mask worn) and go through the drive thru. They have protective measures up. It is my way of getting out for at least one thing pleasurable a couple times a week. I bring a crossword to do also (I enjoy them). I do my best and my best is different each day. I'll get the things I really need to done eventually. I just do. (cutting my nails so I can type will be first on my list now) :) I'm not gonna beat myself up anymore. I am doing the best I can and that is good enough for me today. Blessings to you. I hope you find some small thing you can look forward to each day, one day at a time.
