So… I’ve been having trouble leaving the house lately. I’ve always have gone through phases where I struggle with agoraphobic tendencies every now and then, and this is one of those times. I barely even go out to get my mail. I spent the past week inside without going downstairs to check my mail. I finally went today, so that’s a bit of progress. I would like to start taking long walks again. Maybe I’ll have to slowly build up to it. Like for a number of days sit outside for awhile, a few days walking a short distance, and so on till I make it to my goal and get over this. I will definitely be talking to my therapist about this next time we speak.
Otherwise my mental health is good, doing well on my meds still. I started a medication a few days ago to help me lose the weight I’ve gained on antipsychotics. I’ve been eating healthier too so hopefully I’m able to finally lose some. That’s another reason I want to get out to take walks, for the exercise.
I’ve been binge watching stuff on Netflix a lot. There’s so many good shows on there and I didn’t have Netflix until this past month so there’s a lot of stuff I haven’t seen.
Trying to think of my next crockpot dinner. Maybe I’ll try making chili.
I just ordered of Tangerine Orange Zinger herbal tea and a few other things from Amazon. Figured it would be a good bright, citrus drink to have around for the summer. Will be a good reason to motivate me to check the mail.
Thanks for reading!
