I’ll start off by saying I’m the worst at math..
I used to wonder how it came so easy to others and I had to really work for it. I was always in remedial classes and I still had to study a lot.
It’s that way with health too. Some people lose weight easily and others don’t. For me I struggle with depression.
We can’t excel at everything, that’s what makes us diverse and interesting. It may not feel that way; it’s uncomfortable to struggle even though it’s the root of growth.
I’m currently going through a medication change. Which so far is seeming like another med change on the horizon.
It’s included a ton of fatigue, lack of motivation and interest, a hard time showering, and panic attacks.
That’s the truth.
But medications help me start the first step. I have to take all of the others. Like math, I have to work for it.
During my very first counseling session I was asked what my hobbies are, I had no idea. Today I know some and they will be my first steps to working at my depression.
So my advice would be to when you’re ready make a list of hobbies that’d you’d like to try, and if you aren’t ready yet-thats okay the most important thing you can do is be kind to yourself.
Hobbies/Steps to Try
Volunteer with animals
Today I signed up for volunteering with animals and I read, I didn’t want to but I did it. Tomorrow I might do more or less but I’ll be kind.
