What a beautiful journey I am starting. For some reason I am inspired to write a children’s book. I thought I would give it a go, for fun, but also a challenge in practicing self discipline. So be prepared for an onslaught of drawings, ramblings and also pleadings for advice. I have never done this before. I do not know If I have a talent for writing. But I have an idea that will not leave me alone. I have set a deadline for myself, but also an ample amount of time. Here is one of my first sketches.
Saint John the Baptist is who I have chosen to ask for intersession for this story. I will reveal more of why at a later time.
I had my first ever psych appointment yesterday, and it was very interesting. She took me for a walk around the block while we had a big chat. She believes I am doing very well, and that my condition is much more biological than anything, so not so much as a part of my personality. She had some great tips, and also suggested CBT if it is something I feel that I need. I have not decided yet. The meds have fixed almost everything so far. I can cope much easier. I am happy most of the time. I am positive. I haven’t had an anxiety attack since before my last post. I feel normal. The side effects of the med have almost ceased as well. I don’t know why I am so blessed that this is working! I hear such horror stories about antidepressants.
