H-A-L-T

Well my mood has spiraled way day in just 8 hours. Completely down. HALT is an acronym commonly used in step programs. H-Hungry; A-Angry; L-Lonely; T-Tired. I have all of these feeling right now.

Hungry-I am hungry but am so nauseous I can’t eat.

Angry- I am angry- but this time at myself. So very angry. I usually get angry at others but I am just so angry with myself. I am angry for making so many bad decisions. My sponsor, who has the best advice, asked me if I can change the past. Very practical question and the answer is no. I am still angry

Lonely- Don’t get me wrong I have my kids which I love so dearly. I am lonely because of bad decisions.

Tired- I am physically tired and emotionally tired.

It is one of those times where I need to take one minute at a time.

I am so sad.

I thought I would share a great post that I just read this morning written by Corey L. Richardson, LCSW

Corey has a blog called “Treating Mood Disorders” and writes about Wellness Journals, Mood Disorders, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Mental Health, Love Letters.

I LOVE the idea of having a “Wellness Journal”. Most of the time when I write it is about getting all of the crap outside of my head. A wellness journal is a book that you put together of positive things that you can look at when you are feeling depressed. It’s is like having a shield around you helping you to focus on positive thoughts instead of negative ones.
