I know I am not finished with my journey yet, I am tweaking a few things in my life and hoping that it will jump start me back on the road to my goals. It’s time to try to live my life without the aid of anti-anxiety pills which I have relied on for many years. I have been on them so many years I don’t even remember what it is like to not need them. I have been pretty much stable emotional for the last year and my anxiety has been gone for a year. So both my husband and I agree that it is time to try living without them. I no longer want to use those pills as a place to run and hide when something is bothering me. Plus I know those pills don’t help my weight either. There is no harming in trying life without them, if the time isn’t right after all I can always go back on them. I started weaning myself off last night and actually sleep okay and have had no signs of anxiety.
I know that I have far to go, but it’s nice to look back on the last 10 years and realize how far I have come. Those of you who know me personally know that I am a completely different person that I was even a year ago. I embrace life and myself. I don’t like giving up on things. Before I gave up and soon as something became too difficult. I never even tried. In the past this unexplained 10 pound weight gain in two weeks would have completely shut me down. Now I reevaluate what is going on and look for possible causes and then I fix them and move one. Before I would have given up and become severely depressed. But that’s not me anymore.
