This is a sensitive subject to even begin talking about. Issues associated with mental health differ from one patient to another, and if you include the stigma associated to it just changes everything.
I am nowhere close to being in the mental state of mind I’d like to be in, but I sure am doing much better than I was even six months ago. I am still learning and working through all of it but I am feeling better and in control of how and what I feel.
Things that have helped me so far include but are not limited to:
- Recognizing that I need help
- Seeking professional help including medication
- Figuring out triggers
- Establishing a routine
- Physical activity
These are the few things I’ve been focusing on while I try to make some lifestyle changes. I am continuously working on this aspect of health and there definitely are days when I need a push or a reality check.
