I am doing much better in regards to my depression and anxiety. I do have bad days,but it’s not as intense as it used to be, it’s manageable.
Im not sure what helped me but this is a summary of what I did.
I finally came out and told my family and my dr about how i was feeling. I am seeing a therapist. I went to a support group. I exercise like crazy. I try to meditate here and there. I now practice self compassion (when I can because sometimes it is hard). I also adopted a dog that loves to distract me lol.
I didn’t think it would get better but it has. I did not have hope before because of the intensity of my thoughts, but it has gotten much better. I am not cured but I feel like I’m actually living.
I really hope this helps someone. Take care ☺️
