I really appreciate your input Em, it's wonderful that you've taken steps and have found success with it. It's awful when you feel your emotions just
swallow you whole and take over and your advise on just "allowing the bad feelings too" is something that I haven't tried. It's hard not to beat
myself up when I have good days and then take a few steps back and have a low day but I will definitely try your method. I still look to this thread
and my little notesheet with some tips on here to help me on days that I just can't even face the world. Such a great help from everyone.
jacygirl, I am always up for a good read. Someone gave me the Secret but I've been avoiding it since it seems a wee bit cliche.. I don't know. But if
you're like me and not super comfortable with those self-help books I'd love to check it out.
Just a quick update on how things have been going; I usually eat pretty healthy or at least balance any "bad foods" out with something good but have
taken to avoid more and more bad stuff lately and have been taking a steady dose of Vitamin d3 and b12 which was pretty good in terms of giving me
that energy that i've been drained of but something that has worked wonders for me has been Valerian Root. I've been reading a lot of the studies on
it done in Europe and it's been shown to have an effect on people with Anxiety and moderate depression. They suggest taking it for 2 weeks straight
and I've only been taking it for about a week and I can feel a tremendous change. I'm not as short tempered and I have an easier time letting go of
negative thoughts and not to mention sleep much better. I would highly suggest trying it out, even as a tea or capsule!
It's a challenge every day, some days are easier and some days I feel at the verge of needing the psych ward but I just try to work through it and
take what ever time it needs to pass. My partner has been incredibly supportive and I think he is the one who can notice a difference in me trying at
least as he even points out we hardly fight anymore. For me, it's just taking it a day at a time. If I think too far ahead I can't even imagine making
it through but today i'm doing my best to make a choice to better my life and myself as an individual.
Once again, thank you everyone who gave supportive and helpful advice. You have no idea how much I need it.
