I am feeling better than I have in months. I finally feel like I am pulling out of this depression I am in. I feel more hopeful and optimistic about things. School is going better for me and that was something I let slip when I was feeling very bad.
I plan on making sure I go to all of my therapy appts. during the holiday season because it can get stressful. I have a job interview for a part time position so I am hopeful about that. I haven't had an interview for a while. Part time is what I need right now because I cannot handle full time plus school.
I would say I am doing good right now and as long as I go to my appts. it should stay that way.
Im feeling overwhelmed, anxiety about the holidays, work, school. Trying to motivate myself to keep moving forward. I am no longer in therapy, so I have no tactics, doing it alone. Wish I had better ideas but not much these days, just trying to take one day at a time.
Maybe others will have better ideas that I could use.
lm thats great news! kate we'll email but stay heer and rest a while ok you need the support of this group and if you get involved you will get help. please do n'[t dig such a huge hole you cna't get out ok. love ya'll

I do not celebrate American Holidays, but with this said, I get really sad and feel even more alone when I see families gathering. So a way to lift my spirits maybe lose myself in some good books, go for a hike and have a winter picnic out in nature, watch TV, eat my favorite comfort foods, and sleep.
I have acheived my dream of being a kyte, for a single day, riding the wind. The anchors that held me down lifted... I was set free.. Now my journey of healing is possible. Gra' Bonnie
If how I handled Thanksgiving is any indicator, then I will handle the holidays very poorly. It has taken me 3 days to stop shaking and having panic attack after panic attack. I need to go places where I am accepted. I need to spend less time away from home. I need to remember to use my dbt skills instead of freaking out! I hope everyone else had a better thanksgiving than me & hope you all have a happy christmas, hannauka, kwanza or whatever you celebrate.
