You have been so much help. It is amazing when you feel better you think more positively, that all those negative thoughts just melt away and you can actually handle everyday stress without turning it into something larger than it is. Make sense?
It is truly so good to hear you are feeling better and congratulations for sticking in there and not giving up on yourself.
Yes, you are absolutely right, things look so much better when you feel good. I am glad the racing thoughts have diminished and you are going to bed knowing the next day will be a good day.
Remember we are always here for you and we do love to read the success stories.
Gentle Hugs to a special person.
Raniah, You always say the sweetest things. I am glad my post was uplifting, it is certainly about time. Yeah I thought the name change was long over due. I truly feel for people that do suffer from bipolar but that diagnosis never seemed to fit me and the meds for treating that just made my anxiety/depression worse. I am glad I took matters into my own hands and sought help elsewhere because my new MD and PDoc "get me" and are not trying to over medicate me and are working together. I feel better than I have felt in a long time! My husband has done construction type work for years, so he and I have decided to volunteer some time to Habitat For Humanity. Lots of good ideas have been flooding me lately because I feel like doing something again!
Thanks for all the support.
Gem, It was so good to read your post and hear that you are doing better. You have been very brave taking matters on your own and finding the right drs and meds. You have a lot to be proud of. And going through your things and discarding what you don't need is great. Somehow decluttering can make you feel good. Keep up the good work. You deserve to have hapiness in your life. You are in my prayers.
