It has been so long since I have posted a new blog post. I've let going to the gym and my etsy overtake my life in almost all ways.
For those who have dealt with anxiety/depression/IT's, you know that that is not a good thing. Moderation in all things.er f
I wasn't blogging, reading, baking, having fun. All the things I like to do and that help keep me on an even keel.
Can anyone relate?
I loved my laid back routine but then I started taking custom orders in my etsy shop. Starting in August it exploded and I found that all my time was needed to keep up on orders. Good-bye laid back routine. :(
Then I got sick. Cough, sinus infection, ear infection.
Did you know that people who deal with anxiety should not take any medications that contain a decongestant? I didn't. But I do now. My anxiety/depression spiked with all those nasty body symptoms and racing thoughts.
Once it gets going, watch out. (Did I mention a certain "friend" came to visit the same day?)
My dr. called it a "perfect storm" but believes that as I start feeling better from the physical illness and the pms passes I should perk up fairly quickly. Well, I guess I need to perk up and down. Happy medium, please!
A few minutes ago I looked back in my journal and saw it has been pretty much exactly 1 year since my last bad "episode". It seems I had been tring to take on too much then also. Why is it so hard to learn?
Well, if you've read this, I thank you for not leaving my blog. I know it has brought me great joy in the past but I've let myself get "too busy."
All encouraging comments are very welcome lol!
