I’ve been doing really well. A medication increase has helped me a lot. My mood has been great and I have little anxiety. I was struggling for awhile with a really bad depressive episode and extreme anxiety, frequent panic attacks.
I’m also using a lot of coping skills too of course. One new favorite is meditation, it’s a great way to relax and calm my mind. Mindfulness is great too, being present in the moment and aware. That helps ease my anxiety. I also journal every day, good way to get all the thoughts running through my head out. And then there’s my hobbies that I do which keep me in a positive mood.
Oh yeah, big news, I finally bought an Xbox One!!! It should be delivered sometime next week. I’m super excited. I’ve only ever had the 360 so I figured it is way beyond time for an upgrade. I’m also happy that it can play Blu Ray discs and DVDs. I had never had a Blu Ray player before, and it was kind of frustrating because a lot of the movies available to check out at the library were Blu Ray but I could only play regular DVDs. I have some Xbox 360 games that are compatible with the Xbox One so I’m probably going to be playing those first then buy new games later on. Eventually I’d like to get a PS4 as well.
So it’s been 3 months in my new apartment and I really love it. It’s so nice and cozy. I feel safe and have a lot of support.
There’s a lot I want to do in terms of decorating I haven’t gotten to yet. But I did buy a bedding set recently which I love
I still need to get curtains. And more furniture. A desk near the windows where I can do my drawing. A welcome mat for outside my door, pretty shower curtain, etc… I’ll be able to do it over the next several months, just doing a little at a time.
Anyway, this was a long random post but thanks for reading!
