I saw my doctor on Tuesday as a followup to make sure that my heart rate was back to normal. It seems to be, and I finally bit the bullet and asked about anti-anxiety medication. For years I have been trying to avoid this and succeeding in dealing with my anxiety naturally. With exercise, writing, and lots of other coping mechanisms. But it’s been several months going where I have been at a steady state of anxiety. I knew I needed some help.
I don’t think it’s been only limited to what has happened in the past few months, but just in general, worrying about the future. Being single I think it’s normal at my age to feel anxious about it. My parents are getting older, most of my friends are in relationships and/or married and/or starting families. I have great friends and never feel like a third wheel with any of them really, and still have a few single friends thankfully too.
Because of going on the new anti-anxiety medication, the occasional back aching occasionally and the lightheadedness, I decided to delay doing Piyo. I also decided to delay making any drastic changes to my eating for a bit. It’s Victoria Day in Canada so I can do it on Monday without having to fit it in around work. I always find that easier.
Now back to the anti-anxiety medication. It’s only been a couple of days now, but I do feel happier, and more relaxed since I started. Someone told me it can take some time for the real effects to kick in, so I didn’t expecting anything drastic to start.
Update on Car Stuff and changes/projects i’m working on
Although I haven’t heard from my car insurance, I got compensated luckily for this week off. I’m able to get refunded partially for further therapy sessions too, which I think would be a great idea. Driving is mostly back to normal, although I do get nervous in intersections still and when i’m driving at night, but i’m happy that I got over that fear more quickly than expected.
I have had a busy week despite being off work I got a lot accomplished. It’s been nice. I seem to be doing okay, despite some back pain here and there when I strain it too much, and some light-headedness every now and then, but both seem to be happening less and less. And my bruises are fading.
I have been working on an ebook this week, more related to my previous blog which you can check out if you are so inclined. It might not be your cup of tea if you’re not spiritual, but I was once very into the law of attraction in a past life, and so i’m revisiting the subject, with the several more years of experiences and opinions i’ve developed since then sprinkled in.
I am really enjoying writing more, so you might see more of that. I’ll keep you posted.
And last but not least, it’s a new season, so it means there’s a new fabfitfun box! I’ll do my first video blog of opening it so you guys can see things in more detail.
I will be back on Sunday 🙂
