It’s been a while since I’ve written a health update. I’ve suffered from anxiety and depression since the beginning of the year. The anxiety was always there but kept well hidden. The depression, well that was something that arrived out of the blue.
People drop into your life, people drop out of it. Some appear just when you need them and it feels like you’ve known them for years. A kind word, a helping hand, a smile – it all goes a long way when you have mental health issues (and I still hate that phrase!)
Last month I had the most wonderful therapy with Helen Cantrell in Strandhill, Co. Sligo. My friend recommended Amatsu to me and although I’d heard about it before I’d never tried it.
So here we are again, the end of another week. A much quieter one than last week and good in places but the down times when they come are not good at all.
It’s been a stressful week. I thought last week was bad enough but this one topped it. It’s helped me learn a lot about myself though and as I end the week I’m stronger than I ever thought I was.
The last few days have been a bit of a mixed bag but that’s life. On the whole it’s been mostly good though.
