Life is going pretty well. I can't complain too much at this point. Started Cymbalta almost a week ago. I increase my dose Tuesday. So far it is doing well for me. You know how it goes. Medications, most of the time, take time to really work fully. I am feeling better though already.
Exercise is really helping my mood and mental health also. It releases tension and stress. It gives me a boost.
I have been keeping a nutrition and exercise journal. That made me realize that I don't eat enough vegetables. I knew it but, it really made me realize it. So, I have been eating more veggies.
I'm on a 1800 calorie diet. This has helped also. It forces me to eat healthier Eating healthier really does help. I never really bought into that as far as mental health goes. It's true, I have found, for me at least.
I had a conversation with my sister today. That was nice. We don't get to talk as much lately because she is so busy and she is going through some mental health issues of her own and needs space. So, it felt good to talk to her. It also felt good because she told me she was proud of me for all that I am doing. It means a lot to me coming from her; she's my older sister.
I've been reading quite a bit lately. Well, I usually do. However, when I am depressed it is much harder. My being able to read is a sign I am feeling okay.
Church has been going well. I feel so much better about my faith. I was really struggling with my religion for awhile. Then, I started going to a different church of the same religion. Plus, I read a book about Catholicism. I don't agree with everything the church teaches but, I am much happier with it now.
I suppose I could find something to complain about. Life is not a bed of roses for me. For now, I'll be satiisfied with the fact things are looking up.
