It has been almost three months, or 83 days since my diagnosis.
For those that have been following my journey, "Thank-you" and here is my update
Life has never been more sweeter and more fulfilling and it's just getting better... YES there is light at the end of the tunnel, YES their is hope for each and everyone one of us. Don't get me wrong, it hasn't been easy and I WILL take credit for not giving up and for working on myself, for myself.
So daily I take regular medication, morning and night, to help my depression and balance out my moods and when I am really wired, something to calm me. By wired I mean, my highs, which since introducing meds, only consists of feeling like I have a million light bulbs on in my head, Not fun! I'm also remaining very conscious of moods and medication, by keeping a daily log through "My Mood App", which is a great app that is FREE and regular appointments with my Psychiatrist (invaluable)
That's the medical side of things
On the flip side I am working on building a more loving connection to myself through daily meditation, study, yoga and I have recently introduced Reformer Pilates into my weekly schedule and I do not to engage with any forms of social media or news before I have had time to wake up and check in with my inner child.
My study has been invaluable and has reminded me that I already know a lot of what I am learning and that as good as it is to talk about past experiences, it's also very healthy to let it go and focus on feeding the positive aspects of your life.
If you feel like you have tried everything and nothing has worked, I encourage you not to give up, keep looking and don't take no for an answer. And please if you have not been referred to a Psychiatrist by your local GP, ask to be referred.
In love and gratitude
