That sounds great. Keep it up. I am glad to know that you are feeling much better today. Have a good weekend. Keep us updated.

P.S. Don't loose heart. The things would get better. Do not whine that you are burdened with difficulties. As you undergo more difficulties, your karma will reduce. If someone comes across unbearable problems or difficulties, one has to understand that they are going to see good times shortly.

Therefore, do not get upset or distressed when misfortunes befall. Welcome them instead. It is not always summer or winter. Fortune smiles on you after misfortune and vice versa.

To illustrate this, God made fifteen nights dark and filled the other fifteen with cool moonlight in a month. Nothing is permanent.

So cheer up.

I am so happy that you are feeling better. Try to keep a good outlook. You will find more better days ahead. It is a slow process, so be patient.

I am thrilled to hear you are feeling better.  I have been dealing with depression for 27 years and most of the time I do quite well so there are many good times.  I am glad to know your medication appears to be helping you.
Congratulations for advocating for yourself.
Gentle Hugs
