WARNING: POSSIBLE TMI ALERT
I have noticed a pattern. I realize that my depression and anxiety "flare up" when I am premenstrual. Now that I know the problem, I am implementing solutions. Nutrition plays an important role in physical AND mental health. Exercise is equally as important. Usually around "that time" I just succumb to those feelings of hopelessness and put myself on auto pilot; just so I can make it through the day. At night I would cry myself to sleep. This past weekend I DID NOT allow that to happen. I forced myself to go out with a friend Saturday night. I have been blogging and listening Spark Radio and watching Joyce Meyer ministries videos online. I will continue to use the tools available to me to overcome premenstrual depression and anxiety. Even though I did have a brief crying spell this past weekend, I am claiming a victory in this battle. I am mindful that the war is not over yet; but I will continue to be victorious. Thank you, God, for giving me a strong healthy mind and body. Thank you, God, for providing all I need to live the life You ordained for me. Thank you, God, for the victory.
