I guess it's been a while since I was here last.
Things have been interesting to say the least.
I went back to my doctor this past week for the third time - I just have not been feeling like myself at all lately. I was nervous about talking to him - I know, it sounds silly, but seeing as I don't know him that well, I felt weird. He actually sat down and we had a good 20 min conversation about everything that was going on with me. His opinion? He thinks I may have S.A.D.- or Seasonal Affective Disorder. My vitamin D levels that he checked a few months ago were quite low, so he said that may explain a few things too. He was also a bit leaning towards the depression/anxiety side - and gave me a prescription for Celexa and made me promise to follow up with him in a month.
I also took the liberty of booking an appointment with a therapist. Again. I guess it's time!
I will work through this. I will combat it and will not let it consume me.
On the great side, I've amped up my exercise - which always helps make me feel better. It's my natural tranquilizer. Whenever I am feeling rough, all I need to do is hop on a spin bike and I feel relief.
I also celebrated my 41st Birthday a couple of weeks ago. It was an awesome evening. It was wonderful to see everyone too. I wore a dress that my friend Angela gave me - a year ago. She gave it to me as she had lost so much weight, she was too tiny for it! She gave it to me one evening after we had a workout together and told me I would fit into it soon. Not believing her (or myself for that matter) I just put it in my closet and there it sat for over a year. I decided to take it out a month ago...I put it on and low and behold...it fit! I fit into a size 18 dress! It wasn't that long ago, I was wearing a size 28! It felt great!
It was a fun evening...and went on the rest of the week!
Cheers to better days ahead!
