Thankful Thursday

[An occasional exercise in gratitude.]

At the moment I’m thankful for:

  1. My temp gig is continuing to go fairly well.
  2. My father is doing better.
  3. I got over my “but things can’t get better” thinking and saw my ARNP about my anxiety, insomnia, and depression symptoms.  My ARNP prescribed Celexa (for depression) and Ambien (for insomnia).
  4. Ambien does help me sleep.  Celexa does seem to help my depression.
  5. I am continuing to do other things to take care of myself.
  6. The man of the house loves me.
  7. Our friends are also supportive and helpful.

Overall: my life is not perfect. My life is not terrible.  I am coping — sometimes day by day, sometimes minute by minute, but coping.

How’s y’all?

    No comment other than just to say I am glad you are better.

    Sometimes coping day to day (or minute to minute) is the best we can do. I hope the new meds will make things better.

    Hi, I’ve been reading your blog for about a year : ) I was surprised at how concerned I was when you didn’t post for a while–given that I’ve never met you. I am grateful to read your update. Your blog definitely helps ground and inspire me in my own day-to-day life, so thank you. And, now, back to lurking….
