Morning lovely people!
So, I have been feeling a bit low the last couple of weeks...just a general feeling of things going on getting on top of me, not sleeping well and anxiety creeping up on me.
I know that a lot of this is to do with my hormones and the physical toll of what that's doing to my body...I've cried a lot, nothing new there though, crying is like a safety valve, it releases the stress hormone cortisol and I always feel better after a good cry.
So...plan...I've made an appointment with the GP to talk about short term anxiety medication, I have a Gynae appt coming up too. I contacted a local therapist who I'm meeting later this week as talking to someone really helps me to put things in perspective.
Thank goodness that alcohol isn't a part of my 'self care' plan any longer...I have got myself into a right mess with that before and it never solved anything in the long term.
It's not always easy dealing with stuff, not easy at all. But dealing with stuff and not just drowning it out means I only have to deal with it once.
If you are struggling it's ok. It's ok to ask for help. It's ok to not be ok.
