Hi, Tup . . . and thank you for sharing that!
I do exercise when I can (out of the question now until my back heals up but I did get out and walk outside a little bit today).
I do listen to music. I have always felt that the harmonics and vibrations that music provides can actually regenerate you somewhat.
I do enjoy watching especially the old situation comedy television shows such as "Andy Griffith" or "Leave It To Beaver".
I have animal allergies, so no pets.
As for being creative, there are two things I do almost daily. I write humorous stories for a posting board and also write humorous captions to animal pictures that another person posts there.
It is this last one that made me wonder if I could really be depressed because it was always my understanding that truly depressed people would not be able to continue creative endeavors.
In talking to some older neighbors today, I am finding out that a lot of people seem to have days like the two that I have had so far. They say it is typical to be down when you are worried about your health.
Stay well, Tup . . . and again, thank you for your help!
