Mental Health Awareness Australia - Tenth Post

Wednesday 31 July 2013

It's been a little while since I've posted for MHAA on Facebook, but I posted last night and I thought I would share it with you all here.  For anyone suffering from depression, anxiety or any other mental illness, the MHAA page is a great support.  I will link it below, but here is my tenth post ☓
Hi MHAA Members,

I'm sorry it's been a little while since I posted last.  Starting back at work has been quite an adjustment for me, and trying to find a balance between that and everything else is difficult.

I've been doing quite well and getting through my hours at work - some days not too bad, some days a real struggle, but I'm proud of that and what I've been able to achieve these past couple of months.  My blog is doing well and I've been able to be a little more social.
One thing I've realized though, is to never take the 'okay' days for granted.  It tends to always be around the time I start thinking 'hey, I'm doing pretty good at the moment', that I end up falling in a heap again.  So I'm slowly trying to figure out what my limits are and what I can realistically expect from myself at this point in my recovery.

The past few days have been a bit tough.  I've been feeling overwhelmed, and last night I found myself lying awake and crying for no apparent reason - just having that feeling of no matter what I do, or try, nothing will ever make me feel any better.  Whenever these kind of feelings hit, I start to panic and think "well here I go, back to square one again".  Anxiety has that ability to instantly change my logical thinking mind into a completely irrational mess.  It's an unwanted reminder that it wasn't so long ago I was at rock bottom.  But all we can do is our best, right?  No one can ever expect any more than that, even ourselves - especially ourselves!
I hope you're all doing well and life is being kind.
Sending love & strength always ☓
