hallo! me again.

Mon Nov 19, 2012 5:16 pm

Hi! Long time no speak! :D I‘ve been abseng from this lovely forum for awhile due to a rather nasty bout of mental illness. I‘m on Citalopram (an antidepressant which also does wonders for anxiety) and I start therapy on the 23rd of thid month. I‘m funtioning better: I can do things like clean my room, cook a meal and read a book (doesn‘t sound like much but at one point I had to read things like Jaqueline Wilson books because I couldn‘t focus on something aimed at adults.). Writing fluently was also nigh on impossible. Sentences would either be very long and nonsensical or short, fragmented and lacking in grammar. This upset me more than anything else.

Also... I GOT A JOB. WOOO!
I am a Starbucks barista and have been since July. I *may* be being promoted to a supervisory position soon. I‘m overjoyed. :D

Overall I wouldn‘t say everything is fine but I‘m doing my best. I can do more, and I‘ve learned to stop isolating myself. I‘m glad to be back <3

Welcome back, Holly :D The fact that you may get promoted after only 5 months is amazing-you must be great at your job :) I read your posts on Facebook every day so I am aware how anxious you've been feeling lately. I hope the joined effort of the Citalopram and the therapy helps you.
