It’s your responsibility to seek out how to take care of yourself in anyway possible. Being depressed constantly is Hell on earth. Each of us is unique by experiences, chemically, physically, spiritually so when we are suffering from anxiety we have to seek professional help to Balance out our body. I bet 90% of us knew even when we were small that we were different than our siblings, classmates, etc. We were told to “just get over it”. That did not help! An important meaning of life on this Earth is, Be Happy! Stay on the journey towards being Happy.

I’ve decided that I’m staying the course with lexapro because it doesn’t get any better by trying something else, which I’ve done 3 times now, so I’m right where I should be.

I go through a constant eruption with my wife when I think she is criticizing me. I grew up with a narcissistic Dad who was always right . Never apologized or said he was sorry. When I am criticized about something I usually am calm and sensitive with my wife. Sometime I blow a gasket and need to walk away before I do something I regret. I do have propranolol to bring my 200+ blood pressure down when this happens but I am not reacting to my wife. I’m reacting to my Dad who died in 1979.

I wonder how everyone is feeling today and the past days of worrying about COVID. My partner and I went on a picnic today and met our grandchildren in a park by a lake. Lots of room to sit and visit all afternoon. We felt absolutely wonderful being with our grandkids and daughter. We still stayed our distance from each other and it was easy outside in a large park by a lake. We can do this! I also, rather than Zooming with my men's group started meeting with them in a driveway of one of our members. We do wear masks, but we are still 6 feet away from each other and we're out side all of the time. I bring my laptop and bluetooth to a speaker, plug into the garage outlet and run DVD's on various subjects that we're interested in. My 30+ years of IT come in handy and we enjoy looking and talking to each other (for real) rather than on a screen. Take care everyone, we need each other.

I love To hear about the journey’s of people That are working on taking care of themselves. You are doing that. Good luck on the surgery and be blessed by each day. We can’t afford to feel sorry for ourselves. It puts us in a hole that’s hard to get out of. I love to walk each day, read everyday and appreciate the endorphins that are released in my body when I laugh, smile, walk, talk to friends, help others, praise others for staying positive. Each day is a gift.

How’s everyone doing? Are you staying positive in a very anxious time? You are in charge of your attitude and taking good care of yourself. Talk to your friends and use time to keep physically, mentally and spiritually as balanced as you can. My mental state has a warning that I get when it moves to the dark side. Every voice I hear, including my sweetheart of 46 years, sounds angry at me. To counter this I walk, drink water, talk to my Sister( worked 30 years in helping mental illness patients), etc, etc. I also have a doctor that is wonderful to text and checks up on
Me. What are you doing to help yourself in this sometimes negative, scary time? Take care.

On my trip to Bass Ponds I found a northern shoveler migrating through Minnesota going to Canada.
