Documenting my journey with therapy/medication

Forums - General Discussion - Documenting my journey with therapy/medication

Are there any safe places to run near your house? Running could be a good side activity to deal with that, not in place, but in addition to the meds and docs.
I like an app called Sportstracker, for android phones. It show the map, calories, distance, time of the race. And it stores every data so you can always compare a month with the last and such.
Also, reading the gospels and praying helped me to get out of deep depression and suicidal toughts.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

Good luck, hope it works out for you!



Well, unfortunately I still haven't heard back from FEMAP, so I still haven't received therapy yet But on the plus side, the meds seem to be doing something, either as a result of a placebo effect, or from the actual effects, because I'm not as anxious while at work as I used to be



Really hope medication and therapy do make you feel better.

If you ever feel like your cross is too heavy and start thinking about the future with not soo good feelings, remember that, in truth, no one knows it's own future and no matter how "certain" you feel about your future, you just don't know for sure, do you? :)

One thing i hear quite often, and do believe in, is that everyone has their own cross to bear. But that doesn't come without God's help in carrying that same cross.
Usually people tend to run away from their pains, but a few - and i really mean a few - do embrace it for the sake of themselves and even others. In the end it brings them peace and comfort because they know that there's a reason for their suffering.

I don't know if you are a person of faith or not, just remember you are not alone - and never will be -, ok? :)



Just remember to always think about cats, it makes everything better.

Yeah, I have two cats myself



Hmm, well I'd say that the meds have definitely helped, though I have had some setbacks that have heightened my anxiety/depression. Still haven't been able to go to therapy, I've pretty much given up on that happening.

Glad the medication is working for you. I'm curious as to what it is you're taking? No worries if you don't want to disclose that.

Interesting. That's a pretty new one. I've seen TV ads for it on American channels under it's brand name. I've taken anti-depressants in the past, and as recentlly as fall 2015, had a prescription for Lorazapam, which is a fast acting, take it as you need it med I used for anxiety/sleep.
