Those of you who subsrcibe to my YouTube might have seen a video I posted last week about an anxiety flare up I’ve been going through lately. I have so many anxious thoughts and feelings going on right now that I’m not really sure what to do about it or where I should start.
Up until January, I had been planning on reducing the dose of antidepressants that I take to help me manage my anxiety and low moods, but I had an appointment with my doctor yesterday and decided that I’d stay on my current dose for a little longer until I get over this little blip
Concetrating on pretty much anything has been a bit of a challenge this week. Even watching TV hasn’t been holding my attention too well. I have, somehow, been managing to read a lote more though, which is nice. I went through what I think was the biggest reading slump of my life last year so it’s nice that I’ve aleady polished off four so far this year (although I did start one of those in the last week of December).
I’m working on a few voluntary things at the moment, as well as looking for a full-time, paid job, undertaking a massive edit of one of my longer writing projects, updating this blog and making YouTube videos. I’m trying my best to keep busy. I like to think that even though I’m unemployed I work hard on other things that are important to me, but it doesn’t feel like I’m doing enough most of the time.
Do any of you have these feelings? How do you deal with them?
