Last day of May! It went by quick. I am pretty pleased with the results of the challenge. I only skipped three days. Considering i hadn’t blogged for two years prior to this month i’d call it an improvement.
Ideally i would like to get in the habit of posting from my desktop. Typing on my phone is the worst. I’m going to keep posting daily and trying to get better.
May is Mental Health Awareness month and i wanted to write something about my own mental health quirks. I’ve dealt with anxiety and OCD since i was a kid and over the years i’ve learned how to kind of manage it. I’ve tried some antidepressants but they didn’t help my anxiety and actually made other stuff worse. Xanax helps.
The worst thing is not being able to drive thanks to my agoraphobia. It’s really isolating and nothing i’ve tried has helped yet. But there’s still hope!
We’re all struggling to be our best self and sometimes we look at others and feel like we don’t measure up. Jane reminded me that we can’t compare ourselves to others, only to ourselves. That’s a good thing to remember.
