Absence

Hello Owlets,

I would like to explain my absence. Recently my depression and anxiety has gotten worse, I know I posted about this back in August. But I have since gone and seen someone and have transitioned to new meds and now have since upped them. I am still waiting to up them one more time next month. Each transition seems to aggravate the anxiety until my body gets use to that dose.

The pills are helping me a lot but I still have a lot of anxiety. I am coming to believe that my anxiety is chemically induced. There seems to be no reason for my attacks. I can be fine and then not fine for no reason.

But, I do find that if I do small detail things right now that require my total intense concentration, my anxiety flares up. That is why I haven't done and posts on here. I am sad to be missing the Digit-al Dozen Does Black & White Week (I hope you have been following them! Amazing stuff going on!).

I hope to back on my feet soon. So please, just bear with me and don't forget about me! :)

Here are a few posts that I have stumbled on recently that I love:

  1. I know exactly how you feel hunny, don't worry your readers won't forget you!!
    Depression is such an awful struggle, mine has been worse lately as well : /
    There is nothing worse than not even wanting to do the thing I love the most (painting my nails/blogging)
    :(

  3. Taking care of yourself should always be priority, so don't worry about being absent (we'll all still be here)! I was diagnosed with severe anxiety a few years back and it's a hard struggle when those moments of panic hit, but know that it can get better! Sending good vibes. :)

    1. Thank you so much for the support. It's hard with anxiety because no one can really see it, so unless you've experienced you don't truly understand.
