I'm starting off this new year sad and depressed and with a hurt back. This morning, I bent over to pick something up off the floor and, boom!, my lower back spasmed. I almost didn't come to work (I can barely walk!), but I'm here only because I couldn't stand another 24 hours in bed. I was severely depressed this weekend and didn't really leave my bed much, which has made me even more depressed.
Adding to my funk is that I quit smoking (again) yesterday. I cried on the way to work today. Nice way to start off the new year. My therapist will have a field day when I see her Wednesday and will, no doubt, want to start me on antidepressants in no time.
