I am so sorry that you feel so down. Stress can def. break you down. As Serafena suggested why don't you try outside activities with your friends, or others. Keep your mind occupied, but not with stress. I'm definetly for the massage, that will get rid of the tension that you are feeling. At least till you can see your docs again. Hang in there and please know we are here for you when you need us.
Things are much better today. I am sure the Trazodone kicked my depression right out the window the other day 'cause it didn't last long. Normally when I crash it's for much longer. But I am feeling much better. I made a point of reading your replies right away and made efforts to try your suggestions.
LFW-I will try yoga some day, but I did try the resting thing, and it helped a little. I'm going to do that more often. I have a plan I am going to try with my bf. When I get that together, I may post it to see what everyone thinks.
Dutchie, thank you so much for your support. I too believe in scents and their effects. I have been lighting my Pumpkin Spice candles all week...I love this time of year, fall, and when those candles are burning I feel comfort. Also thank you for catching me on my negative thinking...ooops...!
Olivia & Serafena, thank you so much for writing and being here for me. I spent a lot of time with my dog and my cat too the last couple of days which helped. An update for everyone...
I am having a support person through CMHA assigned to me. Actually, the support is going to be from another group affiliated w/CMHA; WOTCH. That was great news. I will be sitting down with this person and making a plan in about 3 weeks...They said before the end of October.
Meds, pdoc...I am going to give it one more month before I make any decisions. I didn't keep good track of my moods this past month, so my mood chart is going to be filled in every day for October. I need to see exactly where I am.
I did see my physician yesterday re the bladder infection. I am done my antibiotics, but she is getting more testing done. So far it looks like the infection has cleared up, but my doc is keeping on top of this. I will continue with the cranberry juice.
Anyway, thank you guys so much for reaching out to me. Once again your support got me through. Thank you.
