Hi! I have been struggling with anxiety, depression, OCD, and PTSD symptoms since I was 14 and am now 23. I see a therapist and take medication. Here's why I'm typing this: I find comfort in horses. I ride and take care of them practically everyday. In about a week, I will be having surgery and won't be able to do any of these things for two weeks. Being aware that not being able to do what I love will make me feel pretty down and anxious, I am looking for coping mechanisms. In addition, this will be a setback because I ride a horse named Dawson and we will both be out of shape without me riding him. In top of this, I will be rusty with my skills after recovering. I plan to hang out at the barn as much as I can during this time, but any other suggestions are welcome.
