I dont think this new med could have come into my life at a better time. The past 2 weeks have been the worst ever and have involved lots of crying and crazy thinking. I was lower than Ive ever been before. I didnt care about my life anymore. And thats not what I like to think because I know there is so much out there for me and SO much I want to do!
Since I started taking the med I had a full day at school Friday and hanging out with friends. I also surprised my gf by kissing her in front of quite a few people, but I didnt care so she was happy... Our first kiss was awkward so this one went smooth and it was all ME! I didnt even think twice about it so Im really proud of myself!
I was asked to go camping last night by my best friends... and it was around freezing for the first time overnight this year and well..... despite my parents saying I would get sick and despite my high anxiety about it... I WENT! So, a group of us drove an hour to our friends house and went back in the woods and camped out! We had a great time... although, I am going to do a seperate post about an issue that came up during this trip....
Anyways, I have had a really good time and I dont feel AS stressed and overwhelmed as I did... Luckily, I dont have any exams or anything this week so Im happy about that. I have an appt with my therapist Tuesday... Im kind of proud that I have some stuff to tell her..she will be shocked to hear I have actually been social! lol... Usually, I dont tell her anything because I dont know what to say so... she will be glad to not be bored the whole time.
Next week I have an appt with the nurse to check up on my new med and see how things are doing... Also, I know yall said to take it in the morning so I could sleep at night, and I take it as soon as I wake up, but I can stay up a lot later than I used to and still get up early and feel okay! I can focus in the early hours and still get up feeling like I slept so it is also helping me have more time to do things I need to get done so... Im happy about that.
A few things I also wanted to mention... since I changed my major to Social Work... I have really opened up more and released my feelings for the well-being of others. I went into Wal-Mart with my mom and left with 4 big bags of Halloween candy for a project where we make goodie bags and give to kids who would otherwise not have a Halloween. I have been looking into more volunteer opportunities like I have done once before... the only difference is I finally feel able to do more that I really want to do. Also, I should be getting my college leftover money back soon and I have finally decided what I want to do with most of it. We have the Angel Tree here were you adopt a childs name off the Christmas tree and they have a list of things they need and want and you sponsor them by buying whats on there list etc.... I have decided that I want to adopt as many as I can and go buy a bunch of stuff for those kids using my school money. These kids would otherwise have nothing to open on Christmas and that makes me very VERY sad because I have always been blessed with a great Christmas morning and I know the best feeling is waking up to presents under the tree and I want to give that to as many kids as I can. I have been thinking about things I want. On the top of my list is helping others.... but then I want an iPod touch... and a Wii and everything... and I could use my money for that, but I have decided I want to do the Angel Tree project. My favorite thing about Christmas is buying presents for other people and it would mean SO much to me if I could allow others to have a Christmas. Otherwise, they wouldnt have anything... so I am going to try to adopt as many names as I can... usually people get 1 or maybe 2 so I am going for that.... but if possible Im going to try to catch all the sales and use the money wisely so I am able to buy more and support more kids for Christmas. And I cant wait to do it!!! Im so excited about it cause I love giving to people who need it and I only wish I could be there Christmas morning to see the look on there faces!
Well, I need to do a seperate post before I leave... more running around to do lol... thanks for all the help and support because I never could have done this without you all. Seriously, you guys mean SO much to me! Take care
