My doctor asked me to do this

I’m supposed to be listing 5 things daily that I’m grateful for, for my doctor. These are the ones I’ve come up with:

1. My parents
2. A roof over my head
3. Food
4. Being alive
5. Having a car to get around

The doctor says it will help my depression, but it hasn’t. I’ve had major depressive disorder for a long time. It’s hard to treat. Most days are just really hard on me. I do have an ok day once in awhile though. It’s hard for people to understand this type of depression without actually living with it. I just try to take it day by day.

One comment on “My doctor asked me to do this

  1. I really hope this technique helps with your depression. I think we all have times in our lives where we forget about the simple things that we are most grateful for. It’s good to sit down and remind ourselves of what makes our lives great.
