I can feel myself pulling out of the depression and anxiety. Last night, I went on an hour long walk with Bug. Having the energy to even think about doing that is pretty big. I also interviewed a new roommate on Monday. She seems awesome and Bug took to her right away which is a good sign. I have counseling tonight. The combination of the meds and the counseling seems to be doing the trick. I still have a long way to go but seeing the tiny speck of light at the end of the tunnel is so refreshing. The anti-anxiety med for flare-ups is not really working for me. It knocks me out for about 18 hours. I took one after the Fremont Fair. Being around so many people for so long had me on edge. I was still tired the next day. Thank goodness that was a Sunday so it was OK to be drowsy but I still lost that day.
I am moving forward and pushing myself to do more than just work and sleep. I have been reading while sitting in the grass with Bug in the evenings. I am reading the Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. It's interesting but not the best book I've ever read. Anyway, the point is....progress!
