Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 19 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

The whole fruit and nothing but the fruit!

As part of my 40 days of yoga revolution, I am in the midst of a 3-day fruit fast. It's actually not a fast, more like a cleanse. Three days of nothing but fruit, which began today and ends Wednesday. It's going pretty well so far. In order to avoid a headache at work today, I did have one cup of coffee. I don't have to work tomorrow, so I'll attempt to go sans coffee. Other than one coffee, I've had nothing but fresh fruit. It's been very interesting. Read more...

If you're still alive by the weekend, whistle.

I might then try this "body cleanse" technique myself.

More seriously, continued good luck throughout the 40 days ....

I just found you but will be back to read more of you. I am in the process of getting a therapy dog for my own depression, and think you might be the blog to read about this. \

Hey Fram, thanks! Listen for my whistle tomorrow at midnight--the official end of my fruit fast.

Susan-- Welcome! Glad you are here.

I've placed a link to the "40 Days" book, which we used to guide this program, in the right sidebar.
