It’s Oh So Quiet

It’s been awfully quiet on here the past few days and I thought I’d share why that was. So I’ve opened up about depression lately on here, this is a topic that you can expect to surface often as it is a constant battle albeit one that I’ve been winning as of late. This week has been especially hard because I’ve had some challenging news that has affected the way I feel day to day – I’ll not divulge any details just yet but I’ve no doubt it will come out in due course.

The way I’ve been dealing with said difficulties is out of the ordinary to how I would usually cope. Instead of being predominantly depressed, I’ve become predominantly anxious which is not something I’m used to. Having the odd bout of anxiety teamed with the odd panic attack is the extent of my experience with this disorder and up until this week I could usually ride it out and let it pass over me. Now, I’m not sure what to do…I’m already on medication and I’ve already learned to handle my depression reasonably well but with this new addition thrown into the mix I’m feeling very distressed and unwell indeed.

I hope this will pass and that after the serenity of the weekend that I’ll manage to get a grasp on things a little bit better and think with a clear head about how to approach the problem. But until then I’m not putting too much pressure on myself to blog so apologies for that. I’ll be back soon I promise. As always, I’m open to suggestions on how to dampen down anxious tendencies and would love to hear from you.

  1. I used to take anxiety medicine until I found running… I dont know if you are into fitness but running has definitely helped me with anxiety. Just getting out of the house and walking, clearing my head, getting some energy out helps being anxious or building up anger. I hope you feel better soon 🙂

  2. I hope you feel better and get through this- for me, i love to take a ride with my dog and bring my camera and take shots, lately i like having kind of a routine and planning out my week… And ive been getting back into meditating. Flute meditation music and lighting a candle while doing this, i love. Reading inspiring pinterest quotes, too. Cuddling with my pups, too 🙂

    1. Aw thanks for the ideas Shannon! It’s so hard to find motivation when you’re feeling shitty so I like that you push yourself to do productive and relaxing things. I might try the meditation thing sometime, inner peace is definitely something I could use right about now. x
