I emailed yesterday to have it filled so I shouldn't have to spend too much time there. I'm super anxious about it. That place holds so many memories and walking in there is going to remind me of what I am missing. <BR> At least I'll get to talk to a couple of people that I really miss. <BR> <BR> Overall, my new meds seem to be working. I had a visit with the psych yesterday and told him what had happened betwe... Tue, 8 Jul 2014 08:19:19 EST Its been a while again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729140 So about 2 weeks ago I went to a therapist and she decided it would be in my best interest to see a psychiatrist. I have officially been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder and I have depressive tendencies due to these. I am ok with that part. My new meds seem to be working very well. <BR> Last Wednesday I was fired from my job. A job that I absolutely loved. I never wanted to work any other place or do anything else. I was a vet assistant for a low income... Mon, 30 Jun 2014 14:27:18 EST Still here.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679817 The depression isn't going away. It takes alot to get my mood up and very little to knock it down again. I bit the bullet and made an appointment with my doctor. I go to see her this Wednesday. I'm hoping she will give me a referral to a psychiatrist (my insurance won't cover it unless I get a referral from my GP). Last time I asked, she ignored the request. <BR> I think something is wrong with me. Every little thing seems to set off an anxiety attack. Making decisions is becoming more diffi... Thu, 24 Apr 2014 22:09:56 EST I keep meaning to post, but life happens.. and stuff http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5673116 It has been a month since my last post, but at least I have been on the site every day. :-) <BR> <BR> I mowed the lawn for the first time this year. I really like cutting grass. I have almost an acre and a push mower and a hilly-ish back yard. It burns tons of calories and takes me close to 2 hours to cut and I get thinking time. <BR> <BR> I hit a really big depression a week ago. I didn't want to do anything. Everyone hated me and I sucked at everything (not really, but that is definitely... Tue, 15 Apr 2014 21:43:48 EST Sunday = Cleaning house http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5649100 I'm starting this entry with how I feel today. <BR> I feel good. My mood is light. My knees don't hurt. Nothing is weighing on my mind. Not much is worrying me right now (which is surprising since I have an anxiety disorder). <BR> <BR> Sunday's at my house mean cleaning. I do laundry, get the kitchen extra clean, vacuum, clean out critter cages, etc... <BR> At least that is the idea. Sometimes I do a half-a**ed version of these things about an hour before bedtime. I am a master procrastinat... Sun, 16 Mar 2014 12:14:21 EST I ordered the Spark thing-a-ma-jigger Tracker do-hickey http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5648017 I've been considering ordering the Spark Activity Tracker and I finally did it today. I'm going to use it when I am at work. I'm interested to see how much activity I do during the day. I work at a low income veterinary clinic as a vet assistant. Most of my day is spent on my feet, walking back and forth down the long hallway between the clinic exam rooms and the clinic office. In the mornings (when I'm in surgery), I am constantly moving, bending, and lifting. We knock prep for surgery on on... Fri, 14 Mar 2014 22:03:30 EST Everything is breaking.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5599051 The last year has been hectic. The last month has been worse. <BR> <BR> Starting Christmas Eve, I have been sick. The snot and fevers have finally gone, but I have a persistent cough that continues to come and go. <BR> <BR> A week and a half ago, I was bitten really bad by a feral cat at work. The bruises and puncture wounds are healing and DHEC should be clearing the animal from quarantine soon. <BR> <BR> Last week a storm knocked out our modem, stereo, Nintendo Wii, and the electroni...
