Daily Food Journal | Week 18 | Mild Depression and Cancellations

Sharing is caring!

I have experienced varying levels of depression for most of my adult life. I have always gotten good results with a supplement called SAM-e. As it happens, if I have a fairly long depression-free period, I’ll stop taking it.

I decided to start back with the SAM-e on the 26th because I’m starting to feel a little depressed again. My typical course of action is to just sleep and eat while I’m waiting for the supplement to kick in.

At present, this is a pretty mild depression, thankfully. I have been working from home for the better part of a year, so the quarantining aspect hasn’t been a problem for me.

But I’ve been losing the battle with intermittent fasting. I had been scheduling my fasting on days when I would spend a good part of the day out of the house.  My in-person meet-ups and Toastmasters meetings have all been put on hold. I’m pretty much just running errands once a week.

So I’m at home all day, just about every day. And the refrigerator is right downstairs.

And I’ve been hankering for grits. At least I’m sticking to 1/2 serving and trying to keep it to once a week.

Most years, I try to schedule my annual medical appointments around the same time of year and as close together as possible. On April 8, I had three appointments (mammogram, OB/GYN and dermatology) scheduled.  One by one, they were cancelled. Plus, I had made the decision to cancel a colonoscopy for earlier this month. God knows when we’ll be able to schedule new appointments.


DISCLAIMER – This is not a recommendation of SAM-e. This is simply my experience. Please conduct careful research to learn if this supplement is right for you.
