Hooked on a feeling

I apologize for not posting in awhile. I've been in an awful funk lately, letting people and circumstances get to me. Been wallowing in a private pity party, yet again.

I've been taking my meds and seeing my therapist like I'm supposed to be doing, just as prescribed. Really can't blame treatment for this one.

Clinical depression is not just a state of mind, it is an entire lifestyle. Even though the medications help lift my mood and focus my mind, I still have to break a lifetime of bad habits. I have to learn how to deal with things in a positive manner. Pessimism must be converted to optimism. Paranoia must be kept at bay. Feelings have to be shared, not bottled up inside. The body must stay active.

Anybody got a pill for that?
