After last months ER visit for anxiety and depression. I had to acknowledge that I wasn't feeling okay. Last month was a wake up call. I didn't like seeing my blood pressure so high because of anxiety. I'm still struggling with anxiety and depression, but I take everyday with patience and better self care. I know that I said I'm taking a small break, which I am. I wanted to update everyone on how I'm doing. I'm still not doing well as I want to, but I'm not in an Emergency Room. I think this time dealing with anxiety and depression is worse because of letting things bottle upside. I guess it was just a matter of time before I felt like I was crashing. I can't thank you all enough for all of your well wishes.
I had so many triggers last month leading to me feeling like I was falling to pieces. I haven't felt like I did a few weeks ago in over 3 years. I'm working on not letting my triggers overwhelm me.
Since I've been in this depressive state I had a tendency to overindulge in Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts. Time to put those glazed donuts away and get back to my exercise routine. Since it's so hot and humid all day I doubt if I'll be walking outside. I'll probably go to the mall and walk. I want to get back into cardio as well.
I've been on medication for depression and anxiety off and on for about 10 years. I started taking antidepressants again last year. I've noticed that medication does help, but I have to learn to balance my life better. I will talk with you all soon. Don't forget to check out the other two posts I posted this week.
