I feel stronger today. My mental state is starting to clear. I am calm and don’t feel panicked. I am very grateful to all of those who have supported me through this. I do believe my depression is lifting. I am talking to some people about finding volunteer work. I need to expand my social circle or at least socialize more.
My roommate had some friends over yesterday and they are coming back again today. It makes me nervous to be around people but it isn’t as bad as it has been. I was able to go to the store the other day without a serious amount of panic and I even talked to a stranger. Well, the door guy who checks your receipt but it’s better than it was. My walks are helping me feel empowered. I even feel a little stronger physically. I am loosing weight which I am proud of. Weight loss will help with my arthritis and other medical problems.
