Learning to treat the symptoms of my mental health…

Wow, today has been long.

Up and out early to get the summer rubber put onto the car, then a meeting in Coronation followed by taking over at the store for the day.

I did manage to get some work done at the store today. I managed to write up my meeting from this morning, and get some photo editing done. The store has been pretty dead today though. One sale. Ugh, that’s painful.

Oh well, not every day can be a winner. Just wish they’d happen a little more often though!

Tonight I’m attending a potluck at the seniors centre in town, then coming back to the store to open it up for the book club which is meeting tonight because Lynn still hasn’t made it home yet from Calgary.

I just hope she’s feeling a bit better, because she didn’t sound all that great yesterday.

Tomorrow I have another busy day on deck. A 9 a.m. meeting, watching some aboriginal dance at the local school, then another meeting in the afternoon. It’s been a busy week.

It’s been busy, but I’m setting limits. I’m making myself take some downtime in between all of this. In short, I’m learning to not bite off too much. I’m also in a much better spot than I was a few weeks ago, mentally speaking.

I’ll take it while I can get it, because I know my mental stability is relatively fluid and prone to change. It’s not about curing this menace in my mind. I know that there is no “cure” for it. But, what I can do is learn my signs. I can learn my body, my triggers. I can manage the symptoms and make sure I don’t put myself into compromising situations, such as overloading myself.

I’d say on the right path on that front,

K
