I have regularly talked about my anxiety, how I have struggled with it, but also what I’ve done to allow myself to move forward with my life and hopefully get to a point where I don’t need medication any more. Even though I am slowly coming off my medication, there are still quite a few thoughts that go through my brain. I do have coping mechanisms but you can’t control what thoughts you have, and sometimes they just get the better of you, and that is okay, but know what is true and what isn’t. So what are the things that go through my brain on a regular basis! This is going to be a very personal post for me, so I hope you enjoy it!
On thecurvaceousvegan.com I have documented quite a lot all about mental health and where I am at currently with my mental health, but I think it is important for people to be able to have a list of things that they could do on days when they are having a bad mental health day.
So what do I mean when I say a bad mental health day? I know when it comes to my mental health, I end up overthinking the things, I become very distant, tired, withdrawn, I feel like I’m not good enough for anyone, I wouldn’t have slept very well and my anxiety will kick in.
On those bad days however, I have some wonderful people around me who are my reason for battling through those bad days and working towards those days where I want to be able to smile more than my cheeks understand possible.
