I'm bipolar and recently my life has been spiraling out of control. My meds aren't as effective as they used to be and my family life has gotten crazy. I got to a point where I was struggling to find reasons to keep living. Thankfully I recognized the signs that I was heading down a path I didn't want to go. I took the first step today to prevent myself from going any farther down that path to depression. I'm working with a shrink to better myself and thankfully developing healthier habits is something she has me working on. I figured that my weight loss goals would be put on hold for a while, but they are actually going to be propelled forward by the changes she's asking me to make. Beginning this journey and asking for help is scary, but I know that if I hadn't the consequences would have been far worse. I have to remember to take time for me, and this new healthier lifestyle is the first step in lifelong changes I'm determined to make.
