Well, I have been off my medications since I found out I was pregnant. My little boy was born last week and everything is still going good. I have had a bit of the baby blues, but nothing too terrible. I’ve just been a little weepy and I think it is mostly due to lack of sleep and hormones. Things are looking a little better every day. I think it is a good sign that I can be happy and not so anxious about everything. I hope that maybe I won’t have to go back on meds, but I will if I really need to. I will never let myself get as bad as I once was.

I have stopped taking my meds until after I give birth and maybe longer if I do breastfeed. My Dr. said I could go back on them if I really need them, but I would rather be off to make sure they do not harm my baby.
I have been feeling very content lately. Things have been going better in all aspects of my life and if this continues I will eventually have to mark this as complete.
DH and I started marriage counseling today and I found it very helpful. The Therapist wants to meet with just me next week. He says my Dr. was wrong for not recommending therapy along with my medication. He said that I seem very depressed to him and that is what is leading to a lot of DH and my conflicts. He thinks that getting to the root my problems might help with our relationship. I am so happy to finally be getting therapy. It felt so good just to talk to someone about our problems that can help us work through them. With no insurance I thought I would never get any therapy because of the cost, but DH’s work is now offering free therapy for employees and their families. This is the best thing ever!
The anxiety is a lot better since my husband and I have been working on our relationship and finances. It got a little out of hand there for awhile, but things seem to be looking up.
I’m still doing well. I believe that I will always have some anxiety. The medication that I have taken for almost two years now seems to keep me stable most of the time. I was worried about being taken off of it the last time I had a checkup at the doctor, but she assured me that she would not take me off of it as long as I felt I needed it. I can’t imagine going back to the way I felt before medicine. I don’t know how I lived like that or how anyone could stand being around me. I guess they really cared a lot to put up with my behavior. I’m not ready to mark this as DONE, but I do feel like I have made great progress in the past two years.
Well, I made it through another holiday season and am still marginally sane. This year wasn’t that bad actually. Less stress than I’ve had in awhile. The Christmas bonus helped relieve a lot of the money anxiety. This year has gotten off to a good start and I hope it stays that way.
I’ve really been doing well lately. I still get stressed out, I just don’t go crazy about things as much as I used to. I can really see how over time I have been getting better and better. I hope to continue on this path.
Today wasn’t so good. I was really stressed out over getting my photos mounted and dropped off for the State Fair. There were a few tears and some general craziness on my part, but I calmed down after a bit. I still don’t feel all together. i’m Better, but not great. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have to go back to work tomorrow.
Things have been a little easier lately. I had a nice vacation and will be taking another in a couple of weeks. Money is still an issue, but I have been trying hard not to worry about things too much and just make sure all the bills get paid on time. This helps relieve some of my anxiety if I just relax a bit.
