There is a glimpse of me
By Sarah Henderson

The medication must be starting to work, as I had a glimpse of me last Saturday. It was great to feel like ‘me’ again, but I also felt sad as I realised I’ve been very down for a while (it’s been interesting reading my previous blog posts this week!)

There is a glimpse of me

A glimpse of me

I’ve always found I need my depression/anxiety to get to a certain point when it physically stops me before I admit defeat and recognise I need medication/time out to put myself right. A couple of weeks before I got to this point I was aware of physical changes in myself, and I think if this happens again I’m going to take action then to see if that makes things easier.

As you can tell I do get annoyed and frustrated when depression brings me to a halt – you would think I would be used to it now. Maybe learning to accept it would make the whole experience easier too. I think that is something I will really need to work on!

Coping strategies

I’ve been very lucky to have some counselling sessions through work. This is showing me areas in my life where anxiety is triggered/increased. I am also trying a different style of meditation. As I see it, everything I try gives me more coping strategies to help in the future. Even if they can’t prevent the depression/anxiety they might help me bounce back quicker.
