Today begins a new journey; one that includes medication. One that I am hoping helps me move forward with more energy. Energy so I can smile more and be more easily filled by social interactions again. It’s a little scary to start medication. Reading about possible side effects is nerve-wracking, but I’m praying this is the right medication and the side effects will be minimal.
I want to include that I’m glad this appointment coincided with this ugly virus I got b/c she gave me a steroid shot that has helped me breathe and feel human and alive again. It hit me, suddenly, yesterday and got worse as the day went on. And, I slept horribly last night to top it off. I’m so grateful for a little bit of energy.
Changing things up
Also worth noting is that I finally made the decision to shut down all 3 direct sales companies I’d signed up for. I wasn’t using them but the potential was stressing me out. I didn’t want to work any of them anyway so that’s been a bit of a weight off my shoulders.
I’m really hoping that with the change in pace – dropping my at home businesses – I’ll be able to work on me. It’s so important for my family and my mental health that I get better sooner than later. Worry won’t help, so at this point I’m simply praying this helps.
Overall today has been a good day. Let’s see where the next 30 days takes me.
