Yay, Trump wasn't the big news this morning! Seems like something to celebrate.

I was depressed last week: no particular triggers. I'm hoping i'm pulling out of it to a place where i can be intentional and not slide back. I was pretty clear that i was not in a place where anything other than day to day needed to be my concern.

I did keep focus on gardening. Saturday was balmy and quite unseasonable: i kept looking at my gardening Gantt chart to see what else i could be about planting. Tomorrow is five weeks from the average last frost date. Saturday i planted potatoes, breadseed poppies, parsley and beets. The peas are breaking through the soil. Next fall i really want to make sure i get romaine lettuces and greens started early because the one lettuce i did get in is looking quite nice.

Saturday morning i took my mother to visit a camellia nursery: i meant just to buy the native holly that has caffeine, and i came home that that PLUS a glorious ornamental camellia hybrid in a pale gold color and Camellia sinensis -- TEA. She went home with a plant from Darjeeling and her own ornamental camellia. I need to figure out how to get my dad to forgive me. He's of the opinion mom buys plants but doesn't plant them. Maybe by cloning some of her existing camellias?

Depression doesn't necessarily have a proximate cause... CFS has taught me that whether I'm "depressed" depends 99% on whether I'm fatigued. (I reckon you probably knew that, but some folks are surprised at how frequently depression can happen with no proximate cause or stress.)

I also noticed that sickness and stress make me backslide to depressed thoughts and feelings quickly - but if I combat them cognitively ("No, you're not worthless and stupid, you're sick, and tired, and you'll feel better soon...") it is a big help.
