As many of you know, I have been fighting against my anxiety this entire week, and today was the first day it was manageable! I finally was able to get back in the right frame of mine and feel halfway normal again. I spent some time alone in my bedroom (while my husband fell asleep on the couch) and just worked on changing my negative thoughts to positive ones. I also spent time in prayer to help refocus my mind.
Today my students were on track and positive. And I was able to handle negative situations without feeling overwhelmed. I felt calm and collected all day! Very limited anxiety! YAY!
However, I am nervous about this weekend, because my anxiety medication ran out today and I didn’t realize I needed to have Doctor permission to refill. I kept putting refilling it off, So I am now going to go two to three days without it. Hoestly, I am incredibly worried about it because I’m not a big fan of cold turkey-ing meds. What I am trying to focus on is that I only take 20 mg, which is low, and since it is so low, I won’t have any side effects. If you could spare a moment, say a prayer for strength for me to remain positive.
Thank you to all of you for your kind comments this week. They really helped me not feel alone and build strength to push forward!
Love you all!
