Moody Monday

Mood:  Anxious.  Okay almost into down right panic.

Panic!!! 2

See I have to go get my medications today, which by the way I have no clue how I was able to talk the Psychiatrist I was seeing at the hospital I just got out of into refilling them but hey whatever works in life at this point in time.  He probably refilled them because I can’t just stop taking the damn things now that I’ve been on them for this long and doesn’t want a medical law suit, like I could afford a lawyer at this time in life.  Anyway, back to going to get my medications.  That means I have to get a ride and travel 45 minutes one way in a car and then back.  I have panic attacks in cars, every single time.  It sucks bat brains.  I’ve been anxious all morning and have pretty much worked myself into a frenzy about having to go do this.  Sigh.  I’m sick of worrying.  I’m sick of anxiety.  I’m sick of disorders to which there are no cures.  I’m sick of being sick.  I’m sick of having something wrong with me and I just know so is everyone else around me. Most likely they’re not but that’s the irrational thought process of my anxiety disorder.

It’s stupid and tiring.

WRAP ~ Wellness Recovery Action Plan

Sorry I haven’t  responded to comments.  I’ve been doing research about Anxiety, Panic, and Bipolar Disorder.  I’ve come across a great article about something we all can do whether we are challenged with a mental condition (see Tom I’ve been listening to your comments) or not.  It’s about knowing ourselves and what we can do (with help) to deal with the stress in our lives; again whether or not we have a mental condition.

Here’s an excerpt from the article and a link (and it’s from a reputable source):

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan – WRAP

Mary Ellen Copeland PhD is the designer of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan, which aims to provide people with a serious mental illness some control over their wellness and recovery. Many centers now teach this plan to people with schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.

The WRAP requires planning ahead both for what wellness looks like and for what illness looks like. This can be done on your own but can also be done with the support of friends and family. There are five sections to a WRAP plan: Daily Maintenance, Triggers, Early Warning Signs, Getting Worse and Crisis Planning.

Go, read, enjoy, try to take action.  Above all know that someone, somewhere is dealing with the same issues you are; hell maybe even right next door.  I can guarantee you that most likely I’m dealing with the same issues you are, so if you need me; let me know.  It helps me to help you.
