This morning I have been reading on how some people are getting tired of being a diabetic or they are burned out. I am not one to complain, as I have those feelings at times to. I don't let it get to me though. I just wanted to share what I myself do to keep from getting burned out or getting depressed.
First of all, the best thing is not to let it get to you. Do what you have to do to keep it under control! The worst thing to do is not to give up! I hate feeling depressed or having blue days. When that happens I turn the other cheek. This is where I am glad that I am a Christian, because I talk to God allot about my frustrations! I do that through prayer. I also write in a journal. I do it on a daily basises. I get motivated by reading the Bible and focusing on what God wants me to do. I ask Him to show me how I can help others to. Now I am not imposing my religion on any of you. This is what keeps me going. It helps me!
If I can, I also find some type of volunteer work in the community or at church. Join a committy that supports health causes or possitive causes that impacts your community. This lifts your spirits in more ways then one! You can meet so many new people and have new friends this way! Have fun at the same time. Helping someone else your your community will boost your energy level, and give you a better hopeful feeling.
Join a support group that will be beneficial for you. Don't join one where you go and here the negatives. Go where it sounds like its a possitive group. Do all you can to keep going and you will be so fanatic about what you are able to do, that you never thought possible!
Keep on keeping on, and helping other's is the best way to get your mind off of our problems.
