This month, my therapist said very blankly, “You’re depressed.” He’s right. I’m still depressed. I’m having a bit of an identity crisis as well. This review is a little late into August, but that’s okay. I’ll have a recap of August soon too. Let’s get into what I remember about July.
A celebration: I’m still here and am definitely climbing out of my rock bottom. Slowly, very slowly, reaching up to the fresh air again.
A change: Preparing for moving again. Preparing for my family moving out of province. My mental health changing because of the stress and changes.
A conflict: I’m still struggling with the right dosage for my medication. I’m also trying to balance my health management with my creative projects, which has been hard to maintain.
A relief: I’ve found a medication dosage and frequency that works for my health, along with some short term therapy.
A regret: Lack of commitment to all my projects.
A random memory: I don’t have one. This is the part that upsets me the most. I don’t… really remember anything.
August means back to work, back to school, and back out in the world again. I’m trying to keep up.
