Depression and Anxiety. I feel good.

Recently I told you about my mini breakdown and having to visit the doctor on Christmas Eve and how my medicine was changed and then I told you about how I felt like I was beginning to feel better.

I wanted to type up an update since I went to the doctor last week for my check-up. 

I feel great!

I really feel great!

Emotionally I feel awesome.

Besides this damn cold that has me exhausted and feeling icky.  I heard it can take WEEKS to feel normal again!


I’m glad that I’ve found the right medicine and dosage to make me feel like Michelle again.  I haven’t felt like that amazing woman in a long time. 

Michelle is a pretty nice woman.

I’m glad she is back.

I know my kids are glad she’s back too.

You know how I know something is different with me?  When I’m in a bad place I get real OCD with cleaning in the house.  No shoes worn inside, which is still my number one pet peeve is still on the table.  Ha ha.

BUT, I haven’t cleaned the house in a week.  The house is dusty, the floors need to be vacuumed and there’s laundry to fold.


It may appear that I’m being lazy as I sit on the couch watching Bones reruns and crocheting on my blanket but it’s actually me being able to relax.

This is something I haven’t done in a long time.

Right now the beds aren’t made.

Don’t care.

I see dust on the TV table.

Don’t care.

I’ve not even picked up toys.

Don’t care.

Ahhh, isn’t life grand?

I've focused on becoming more aware of my own depression this past year. I've noticed eating habits are different and am trying to learn to identify my depression by these. I never thought to look at patterns with my OCD, but I feel that this blog post has been a real eye opener for me.
