My anxiety has been extremely bad the past several weeks, daily panic attacks sometimes multiple times a day. I’m not really sure why, they seem to be pretty random. However, the past two days were panic free. I’ve still had some severe anxiety but I’ve been able to manage it by using my top 3 coping skills: reading, listening to music, and drawing. I’ve also been getting out of the house more. I hung out with my friend yesterday. We got a pizza and watched Men In Black: International. Had a lot of fun! It had been quite awhile since we spent time together. Taking walks has been a great way to get rid of nervous energy too. My mood has been great, no psychotic symptoms and I’m sleeping well. Feel very stable. It’s amazing really. I’m doing the best I have in a long time and I’m very thankful for that.
I’m able to focus on drawing more often which is great, it’s becoming second nature again.
The weather has been amazing. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, I love cold weather. I’d take freezing temps over a hot summer any day. The meds I take cause heat intolerance as well so I’m much happier in the Fall and Winter.
I’m still working on getting into a new/more affordable apartment. I’m on another waiting list now in addition to the other place I applied to so now I have two options, and whichever comes through first I’ll make a decision then. It could be awhile though. My case manager is great and always on top of things which I appreciate. Hopefully something becomes available by the beginning of 2020.
