Hey everyone, how are you?
I am back home after a stay away in The Haven.
I am feeling a lot calmer and more stable compared to how I was on Friday. As always the staff were amazing and helped me to get some sleep when my anxiety was really high. I managed to get some sleep, not brilliant sleep. But it was better than nothing, as not sleeping at all would have made me worse. I was able to come home mid morning of yesterday and pretty much spent the day in bed. Mostly because the medication I had taken for my anxiety was still knocking me out. Otherwise, I just chilled yesterday and watched television and read. I wanted to keep myself as chilled as possible and not get stressed out again. I am hoping that I sleep tonight and that things start to calm down a bit. Although I am aware that they have to get worse before they get better.
Today I hope that my mental health is continuing to be stable and that I am able to continue feeling ok. I don’t have any plans for the day, but I want to do more than I did yesterday. I want to get in some gaming and maybe some writing. But I am also aware that it is a balancing act of doing enough that I won’t be bored, but not too much that I will get stressed out. One of the things that I do want to do is read. I was able to read a couple of pages in The Haven, but I was too tired to really focus on what I was reading. I don’t know if I will switch on the laptop. I did get an email in the week about the mental illness book chapter, which I need to look at but I may leave it until Monday. Overall, I am hoping for a chill but slightly productive day, one which helps to continue to improve my mental health.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
