My first experience with Psychiatry in Puerto Rico
Coping day by day, trying to keep the demons at bay.
We've just moved to Puerto Rico to try to reduce stress and anxiety. Now we're evacuating inland because of Hurricane Irma and hoping our house doesn't blow away.
Happy Strength is the journey of Jonah. Once plagued with severe social anxiety and depression, he now finds himself in a happier place. It wasn't without trememdous work.
Anxiety and fears can be triggered by anything. Sometimes the most innocuous things throw you for a loop. Sometimes the past comes up and slaps you in the face. Religion's a trigger for me.
I heard my thoughts said aloud by a guest on The Mental Illness Happy Hour. Feelings after mania, feelings in depression.
Another day, another change. Another anxiety filled stress attack. A new PO. Maybe a good step forward... I hope....
Having spent so long in depression, it's hard to tell if I'm just feeling better or if the pendulum is swinging too far the other way.
