Weekly Check-In

Hello, World!!! It is after ten at night in my neck of the woods and realized that I have done multiple post today but not my usual one of a weekly check in. My week honestly has been a pretty boring one.

I went to art group on Monday. Tuesday, I went to my med management appointment as well as Hearing Voices Group. I also saw my therapist on Tuesday where I gave him a Mandala I colored for him. I informed him that me giving him a piece of art work is a sign of trust. We discussed a specific trauma I had as more of a sign of trust I have in him. I also discussed with him despite the depression and PTSD symptoms I was experiencing that I was checking in with myself regarding having gratitude in my life. My therapist appeared honored that I trusted him with my art work, gratitude in my life and the trauma I shared with him.

I also did a great deal of art work this week. Specifically coloring Mandala’s. I also volunteered three places this week. So I have been keeping myself busy.

The thing I am most proud of is trusting my therapist. Thank you so much for reading. Have a great Saturday night. Peace Out, World!!!

Tuesday Morning Ramblings

Good Morning, World!!! I sit here attempting to post yet Lil Gertie is wanting to be petted as well as play. Lil Gertie (my cat) wanting attention is a good. A good thing because it means she is doing her job. Her job as an Emotional Support Animal (ESA).

Today, I have a great deal planned in regards to my mental health challenges. I have an appointment with my psychiatric nurse practitioner for a med management. I also have a two hour group called “Hearing Voices” for people who hear voices. The only time I hear voices is when my depression is severely acting up. I also have an appointment with my therapist today. So today is going to be a day focused on my recovery.

Something I want to do is make more of an effort to blog more often. Preferably, on the daily basis like I was doing. Blogging appears to me helpful for my own mental health and people who read my blog inform me it helps them with their mental health as well.

I should end this post as I need to go catch my bus to attend my appointments today. I hope everyone has an awesome day. Peace Out, World!!!
