The Battle...

It seems from reading a number of blogs lately that people are either winning or losing their battles right now. No one really seems to drift in the middle much.  I have been on both sides of the coin.  Today, I feel good.  I feel like smiling, I feel like talking. (Even though I have no one to talk to in person apart from my immediate family.) I am in a mood where I feel free of burdening thoughts, and it is weird!!  I went to the psychiatrist today and he upped my lithium. I have been having headaches the past few days and he seems to think I need more lithium.  We'll see. I have to go get my blood tested for lithium levels in 3 weeks and then go back to him so he can see what range it is in, and adjust it accordingly. Let's hope it is normal.  I haven't felt this free of anxiety in a long time. Imagine that!  Me the worrier!  --Just kinda weird. I hope it lasts. I am thinking I am going to really keep saying the verse in this picture to myself.  Keep going.  Have courage.  Even when times are tough...even when it feels almost impossible, as it has in the I am now, feeling good.  It does come...wait for it, push for it, KEEP GOING!!♥


  1. Shannon, I'm so glad your anxiety has lessened--that's wonderful! I hope you continue to do well.

  2. I'm so happy you are doing better. You deserve a happy life!! :)

  3. It has been an amazing feeling to me when I start a medication that is really working and "normal" anxiety for me is suddenly gone, or "normal" depressed thoughts just kind of vanish! I hope yours lasts, but either way, I hope you enjoy right now!
