Saw Dr. Liz today. I’ve been tracking my mood one to ten. It’s been mostly fives and sixes with a couple fours. I’m really feeling wiped out. So glad to have a few days off.
Dr. Liz says I’m right where I should be in this healing process- and it’s to be expected that I’m tired because it’s hard work. She said we’re going to get me to a mood rating of eight on a regular basis before long. I got excited and said, “That would be awesome.” She smiled and said, “That would be normal.”
So overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, encouragement, support, understanding, and connection with other people dealing with mood disorders. Thank you so much to my family and friends, old and new! I feel embraced with love, for sure. I am so grateful.
Relaxing for the next couple days.
