Theme Week: Getting Heathy. Fixin' the Noggin

I don't usually do heavy topics here at CBM, so if you are looking for a pithy post, today's not your day. Since last summer, when I completed my Masters, I have been battling terrible anxiety, and when that gets bad, usually depression. They are like siamese twins. The two are never far from each other. For the past 6 weeks I have been trying to get a handle on this. I have gone through 3 different types of medications trying to find one that I wasn't allergic too. I have spend most of the last 6 weeks either getting hives, covered in hives, or slowly getting over hives. This has been especially frustrating as I have never been allergic to anything in my life. And the one medication I know I am not allergic too, is one that kills my sex drive and makes you hungry all the time. As you can imagine I have told my doctor this is not an option. So we search on. If the most recent medication doesn't work out, I am going to start taking St. John's Wort again. That combined with my Litebook, was working ok. And ok with no hives is all I am asking for right now.

You stick with it gurl! I'm in your corner 100%!

Speakign of which, i have been looking into getting litebook myself. Did you get yours online from litebook.com?

And may I also suggest meditation? It really does help, becuase when I get squirrelled out, I know that I have the ability to be very very calm, due to my meditation and I just need to tap into that calmness.
