Thanks to everyone that left a comment on my last post. I have had counseling and medication for depression in the past but it wasn’t much help. I’ve been in counseling through the summer but when I wasn’t re-admitted for this semester I wasn’t able to continue at the school counseling center. They did transfer me to a community counseling center but I haven’t followed up on that and set an appointment. I’ll be doing that Monday.
I do think the lack of caffeine contributed to this bout of depression. I quit cold turkey and from what I’ve read online it is best to gradually go off caffeine. I probably should have done that research before quitting. I gave in yesterday and had a soda and I have a lot more energy today. I’m going to continue it for a while but try to keep it in moderation which I haven’t done in the past. I’ve been planning on starting running again but have kept delaying it. I did get out and run today and I think it does help. Thanks again to everyone that left a comment.
