I've been meaning to go back on here and basically explain what is going on in my life currently. While I am very active on social media about my life and what has happened, I know that some people have probably not saw or heard yet. Well, my mother passed away on July 4th 2019; so... that happened. It's been tough and a big adjustment, especially because my sister has also gone to college, so we went from a 5 person family to a 3 person family.All of us are doing fine, you don't have to worry; we are taking care of ourselves.
A few other things have happened. I got diagnosed with Rheumetoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and a TMJ disorder (TMJ is the major joint in your jaw). So recently my life as been a lot of doctors appointments and medical things. I started working with a CMHA crisis worker just a couple days after my mother's passing. It really helped. She basically was there to help me get my ducks in a row for my mental health treatment and what I need to do. So, as of now, I have a new psychiatrist, who I definitely like better than my old one, and I have a mental health clinition that is doing psychotherapy with me. These past few months have been super busy, but now that the summer is over I think things will start to slow down a bit and I can take a breather.
A couple weeks ago, I took a few days off from really doing work. Working from home is weird because you are always in and out of doing work. For me, "work" is doing things on here, drawing, writing, being active on social media, and those types of things. So I took a few days to just really rest and do some self care. I've been really go go go lately and it was really nice. I'm now just starting to find a new routine. Because my sister moved out, I moved into her old bedroom and I've also taken over my mother's office; so I have spaces of my own now. I've really enjoyed sitting at my desk, with my computer, and just working. It feels like an actual job now, because before I was working on my couch or in my bed, so I'm glad I have this work space to do work things in.
While this summer has been tough, with the loss of my mother, my sister moving out, and my health issues, I think that overall I've been doing pretty well. Things are in motion for my life to be a lot better, mentally and physically. I will try to post on here more, because I do really enjoy doing these posts.
