Fighting back from today

I have decided from today that my depression and anxiety is NOT going to beat me. I have made myself move, put some music on and set myself some tasks that I WILL complete today. I will not let the exhaustion etc stop me. I am going back to work tomorrow after a month off and I CAN do it. I now accept that I have a problem, will see the doctor tomorrow about taking the Sertraline at a lower dose to start off (managed 1 at 50 mg) and go to counselling as told to.

Good for you! I did the same thing and still doing it and it helps a great deal! Going back to a routine like working helps a lot as well! You will beat this, keep up the good work!

Thank you. I actually feel tearful today which is such an improvement on feeling nothing. It's good to know that it helps. We can do this!!

stellexxxO, That thought alone will get you far. So put on the "music" sing, dance and move forward. Listen to Rachel Platton's two songs...."Stand by You" and "The Fight Song" and tell me you aren't ready to take on the world with the motivation it gives you. :) x

Oh my. Just listened to them and I was crying and feeling stronger at the same time. I have my song now (The Fight Song) to help me. Thank you so much :-) x

I made the same statement when I woke up today. I walked around my local trail twice it was very comforting I just started laughing because I realized I'm okay and I made it. Small steps and belief is the only cure to this thing of ours.
