The beginning of healing

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Since I last wrote it feels like an eternity has passed.

I am starting to realize there is still some strength left in me somewhere....I will be ok when this is over.

I have been prescribed some antidepressants/anti anxiety med which I will start tomorrow morning. I am not happy about that, but I have to if I want to get my confidence back. I have also scheduled my first ever appointment for counseling, so I am hoping that in combination, things will start to look up real soon.

Weight wise I didn't track over the weekend as we went camping, and despite being careful of quantity and quality of food (we ate out a lot) I gained 3 pounds again. Guessing that must have been mostly water retention though, because it almost all came off again the day after we got back.

I will continue to slog through this. And the outcome will be good.

    Many of my friends have gone on anti-d&a medications and found that it made a real difference. the ones that did really well also did some cognitive therapy at the same time. The medication gives your brain chemistry the energy and relief to DO things again and then the cognitive therapy (which is not the indefinite kind) helps build new habits and gets rid of the grooves worn into the brain's neural connections (kind of like how if you go alpine hiking and everyone has been moving on the same bit of trail it gets grooved down lower and lower until it is impossible to get off the trail, no matter how much mud and crap is on it!

    Anyway, I hope you are on the way to, as Churchill said, "The end of the beginning" when it comes to your health! Hugs.
