Mental Health Update… and ANNOUNCEMENT!

Disclaimer: I don’t share my mental health issues to get pity, but because I know there are others out there like me who think they’re alone. You’re not. It may not look like someone is suffering, but some of us are just so used to prioritizing the well-being of others ahead of our own that we hide it well.

Hey friends! As promised in my last post, I’m here to update you on my mental health. A while back, I had posted that I am suffering from anxiety and depression. The week before Thanksgiving, I had been to my doctor and she put me back on a medication that I was on a while ago. That week was particularly difficult, and adjusting to the medication did not help. I had every side effect in the book, from insomnia to the shakes. All it was doing was exacerbating my anxiety symptoms. It was horrible. So I started cutting the pills in half, which is working much better.

I also have been trying to force myself to concentrate on other things since Christmas is coming. I’ve been keeping myself busy with the usual holiday stuff, as well as almost forcing myself to either read or do something creative every day. I’ve been trying to use my planner and bullet journal more often to keep myself on task. It’s such a strange cycle to be stuck in: being organized makes me feel better, but I don’t feel any motivation at all to actually get organized.

That’s all for now, but if anything else happens, I’ll keep everyone posted.

OH, wait a minute….

I did say I have an announcement to make… I’ve decided to do “Ten Days of Blogmas!” That means that for the last ten (week)days leading up to Christmas (Eve), I’ll have new content up for you EVERY DAY! So exciting!!!

As always, thanks for reading, and until next time!
