A strange thing happened today. I was almost okay for much of the day. I complete three weeks today since I stopped a medicine for anxiety and depression and just yesterday I was ready to get back on it after a bout of unbearable anxiety.
I’d given myself a day’s gap and told myself that if I really need to get back on it I’d wait until we went to our friends’ on Saturday. That was a good idea cos today taught me that each day brings a bit of healing in unexpected forms.
Yesterday the anxiety was so bad but setting myself a small gap before doing anything made a difference. One of my best friends keeps saying ‘trust your body’ because part of my anxiety is a health anxiety as well. I’m slowly learning to trust my body. My mind has some ways to go.
