so it’s official, i’m going back to therapy.
and for the first time, i’m not anxious about it. and i’m not angry about it. and i’m not dreading it.
i found someone who seems really neat and specializes in ptsd and talk therapy. and i’m hoping that our first meeting will go well. fingers crossed.
wish me luck lol
but i wanted to talk about something that i’ve been really, really bad about lately. and that’s using my illness as a crutch.
i know. it’s an issue.
but i got so caught up in saying that i couldn’t do things or losing spoons too quickly that it felt entirely impossible! but i’m started gain back my energy.
and here’s how i did.
step one: medicated and mighty
if you’re on medication i think the most important thing is just… to actually take your meds??? on time??? without other interfering substance???
(talking to you 21 y/o megan who would take her meds with alcohol.)
it’s time to get our shit together.
and i know for a lot of you these things seem simple. basic. could do it in your sleep.
but i just cane back from a trip to depression land and i accidentally forgot to shower for a week so take that!
but we’re getting back on track now.
another tip? it’s basic but stay hydrated. especially if you on a bunch of meds!!! and clean your space when you have the energy! doing the dishes is the WORST for me but when i do actually have the energy it’s best to knock it out.
having a clean living space is top notch and it totally helps with your outlook!
but, ya know, sometimes we have really bad days. and for that i say. tru to take a shower and then put on new clean jammies and get back in bed with your furbaby. sometimes we just need little comforts.
stay safe and stay cozy.
