Life Update.

Hey everyone,

(I'm gonna be tagging some of the people who were involved in the other thread. I created a new one to just move on from then.) @WheresMySquishy @drpenguin @MB95 @Bre-RO 

it's been a while since I've been on the forums and I'm sorry that I haven't been as active as I was in the past. But since then, I've been going to sessions with a therapist at headspace and even getting some exercise appointments with a person that also works at headspace so that's really cool. 

I've been learning more strategies to deal with some negative thoughts, intrusive thoughts, and just my anxiety in general. Like, it feels like a lot of things have changed while at the same time. Not a lot has changed. I don't know how to describe it, but some days I realise that I'm not as worried as I was. But also, at the same time. I still get feelings of anxiety and stress but they're being worked on. Which is really nice. 

It was scary at first, but just talking about things was so so so helpful. And they've even given me appointments with an exercise specialist at the site. So I'm also improving my physical health at the same time. So that's really awesome. 

I'm also very happy that I have had y'all to accompany me on this journey. It really makes me feel amazed to find that I after so long have finally found the help that I've wanted and needed. All of you really deserve a hug and a pat on the back for all of your help that you've given me throughout these past few months.
