I’ve been suffering from major depression for the past year and 3 months. I’ve been in the hospital a total of 4 months.
I’m starting to feel much better, but now I have a few problems to work out.
I lost a lot of weight. And now I’m skinny beyond belief… how does one gain weight? I really need to gain 20 lbs or so.
High energy foods, I’m always lacking energy at present
Exercise- how does one go from not leaving a room for a year to being in reasonable shape? I always used to be in shape… now I feel mighty clueless.
Oh, and there is me and only me- a 19 year old girl. No family in the picture. So I have a lack of money, a lack of energy and a lack of social life.
Basically I need help getting “back into the swing of things”. I need any ideas… I’m lost here and non of my doctors are of help- they just tell me “baby steps” and “don’t try too much at once” and frankly I already know that.
I need information about food, exercise, anything that will help me start me being more healthy.
Even simple ideas of “outings”, because I seriously haven’t been going anywhere for the past year. My big outing at present is to the grocery store- once every 2 weeks.
