A little relief ***update


I’ve been struggling a bit this week with anxiety, proper decision making skills and just feeling scattered. Reached out to a dear friend for career advice and she shared with me her anxiety and depression struggles that I had no idea about. Talking to others about this condition has made it less about me (this is a good thing) and more about empathizing and understanding that so many others are going through the same thing. As hard as it can be to talk about, it’s a conversation that needs to be had. I’m thankful for this site for also being a safe place to share. Mental health is SO important. 💜

***Today, I talked to another friend who hasn’t spoken to me since I had to back out of her birthday weekend due to a major depressive episode a few weeks ago. Initially when I cancelled last minute, I told her I “had a lot going on” certainly not wanting to share that I felt I was in a dark, dark place. But today, I told her the real reason why, that I’ve been struggling with anxiety and depression and my therapist and I knew it wasn’t right for me to go. She wasn’t as understanding. That hurt a bit but my point in this update is that I’m still talking about it, being my true self and hopefully in some very small way bringing awareness to what plagues us all.

Thank you so much for your comment. I wish we could control these thoughts! Sometimes it’s a struggle for me to make even the most basic decisions because of my anxiety. But again, it’s a relief to share these thoughts and feelings with a caring community and we can be here for each other.
