We all have our mountains to move. I think if you are not
crazy, there is something wrong with you. So much injustice, cruelty, coldness and
abuse in this world. We are all that matchstick girl.
They are different issues but everyone has something they need to overcome. Makes me think that is the real purpose to our existence. You do not know
your purpose and it makes you feel anxious. Sometimes it is hard to just float and go with ...whatever...
...learn to float.
It was proven recently the best way to improve your happiness was to recount 3 blessings before retiring and remember 3 things you are thankful for.
It was found to work across religion and genders, and including the plethora of psychiatric ailments that plague our dysfunctional society and people,
OCD, ADD, bipolar, SAD, autism, generalized fear, anxiety, insecurities, psychosis, manias, and depressions. It is no wonder people self medicate.
There are not enough doctors to go around and really only the wealthy can afford to treat mental disorders properly.
If exercise, proper diet
, (no sugar alcohol or white flour, eat natural no processed/fast food) and counting your blessings is not
enough to make the situation liveable - I hope you have good medical and can get the prescription drugs you may need to cope. I have to stress the
diet and exercise however since only about 10% of patients with garden variety mental disorders still need drugs after regular exercise and minor
changes in diet are tried first.
Personally I prefer the periodic torture along with the creative mania of this illness and forgo drugs. I try to schedule my breakdowns for Sunday and
get plenty of sleep which you should do as well. "Sleep that knits up the raveled sleeve of care" Sometimes just a nap can change everything. You wake
up in a different mood. And keep writing, maybe keeping a journal of your illness and moods. What happened that day, what you ate and how you felt.
You may see a pattern take place. All the best to you.
