A Big Turnaround
Monday, July 28, 2014
I've been struggling with depression due to having a chronic illness and with a small medication change and help from my psychologist, I've had a big turnaround in how I am feeling and I've even lost a couple of pounds!
After complaining to my doctor that I am really struggling to do anything, he upped the amount of Abilify I take. After that, I saw the psychologist. She's a great gal! I took a list to her of all the things I want to do and together we re-prioritized my life! I had been putting the house as the number one thing and I was sick to death of that. We put a life back in my life and I feel so much more energized. I am sleeping less and eating less and doing a small amount of exercise and I hope to be adding other good things to my schedule. I finally decided I am going to write as a profession and so I am giving that the position in my life it requires. Then I have another paying job that comes out at the top of the list. Housework has been sent to the bottom of my priority list where it shall remain! :) I do want to get the house in order so I can have company over, but the purpose has changed so that doing it has meaning. And, I'm not going to worry about the house being perfect, just "good enough".
I'm so excited. I even have come up with a story idea I am developing. I think it is going to end up being an adult romance.
Well, so much for that. I just wanted to share with you and maybe give anyone out there hope that things can turn around for you if you are depressed. I feel so much better now about myself and my life. I feel like I am a part of the world now, not just sitting around waiting to die. Yea! :)
