I don't want to jinx it but I think I'm getting better

Well, I ditched the dude, a toxic friend, and my stupid perfectionist attitude and I actually feel better ... the past four days I've been feeling like my old self like WTF!!!!!! I kind of just said "eff it, let's fix this." And now I'm doing the "old me" stuff again - listening to music, dying my hair pink, FINALLY staying places overnight!!!! I mean I haven't stayed somewhere overnight without anxiety in who knows how long!! My mom has actually been understanding my anxiety better which is nice. If I do really and totally recover I'll be sure to post some tips but for now I'M NOT GETTING MY HOPES UP cuz anxiety is a b*tch XD

  • That is great to hear. I'm happy for you. Keep up the hard work.

  • Thank you and bless you. It's appreciated :-)

  • You are very welcome. I'm just now starting the hard journey of accepting the fact that I have severe depression and anxiety and am going to see the Dr for the first time tomorrow and joined this group today. It's good to see someone making progress with their troubles. It gives me hope for me.

  • Oh of course, you can talk to me any time you need help! We can help each other out. Good luck with that, just talk to them and tell them the truth!

  • I plan on it. That sounds like a great plan. Thank you so much

  • You are very welcome, and I look forward to discussing this with you

  • I so hope you have selected a good Dr. It makes all the difference in the world. Also, from my experience, I confessed every feeling, or problem right from the start. My psychiatrist is like a brother to me now. Good luck and remember that we have been there and are thinking of you!

  • Boy, I could use a good psychiatrist. I am with the VA. It has not been good. I am like the walking dead.

  • Thank God for Jesus, for God. Otherwise, I would have committed suicide many times over. And also, I thank my Catholic faith.

  • Good for you for having strong faith! I am a Christian and I understand how that is helpful! Have you tried finding a psychiatrist?

  • I wish you success! I used to love traveling. As a matter of fact, this is our timeshare week in Cancun. Crap. But good news for you. When I feel better I can instantly detect it. The crappy part is the length for me.

  • I understand what you mean, that good feeling is easier to detect once you've been feeling down for so long. Hopefully you'll be able to travel again soon!! I wish you luck. I'm starting to find that you just have to make yourself do the things that scare you sometimes, even though IT REALLY SUCKS :-)

  • Good for you. Keep up the good work. Vee.

  • Thank you, Vee :-)

  • Never give up. You are a creation of God. God loves you, and so do I. Stay Strong.

  • Thank you, although I have strong faith it is always nice to be reminded of His love so I appreciate that greatly! Bless you

  • Keep up the good work just take it day by day very proud of you

  • Thank you so much! I hope your journey will have smooth sailing very soon :-)

  • Lol my journey has been long and hard but threw my adventures i have learned a few things for each person the journey will be different just pick a course and never let anything get in your way safe journey my young one and let your sails fly high and filled with air

  • Your outlook is very inspiring, thank you for that, it's fantastic!! Honestly you sound like a fortune cookie or those quotes on calendars ;-)

  • Yo lucky numbrrs are 2 6 12 24 36 lol

  • Sounds great! I think if we allow ourselves to be happy again and quit overthinking every single thing, we could clear our heads a bit and start to enjoy life again. Keep up the good work!

  • I agree! Sometimes it's like you almost need to force yourself to be happy haha. Thank you so much!

  • Also, music!!!! 😊

  • That's funny because i just posted what I do to stomp anxiety and music was number one on the list!! I'm listening to Troy sivan right now haha!!

  • Never heard of him. Ever listened to carbon based lifeforms? Or this will destroy you? Both instrumental music

  • He's like a pop youtube dude haha. Never heard of them, will check them out!

  • Do iiiiit. I listened to Troy. Not a bad musician just not my style

  • Oh yeah, I get that! I love how everyone likes totally different styles of music! I'm listening to carbon based lifeforms right now and I'm enjoying it!! Also, if you're into alternative stuff I TOTALLY recommend Bon Iver's latest album "22, a million", every track on there is amazing (i'm a huge massive freak-out Bon Iver type of fan lol)!! Also, my favorite indie rock band to date is Walking on Cars, they're from Ireland and they are AMAZING (although their music videos are very creepy lol I just listen to the lyric videos). Thanks for the recommendation!! I don't know if you can tell but I am OBSESSED with music so I totally love finding new bands

  • I love bon iver! I'll check out walking on cars. Music is life!! Are you on fb? We could trade more bands lol
