Today I graduated from partial hospitalization for depression into Out-Patient. It all started for me (well the hospitalizations) on March 15th. In this time I have been to more group therapy than I have in a lifetime. I have found it helpful. To learn coping skills, strategies, mindfulness, and more but also, and more moving to me, is connecting with others who struggle with the same things. It has helped me to not feel so alone in my thinking, thoughts, feelings. It has been nice to be around others who understand, and listen without judgement, knowing we cannot save another, but offering a solid kind sounding board.
Tomorrow I begin outpatient therapy. Am I looking forward to it???? I dont know, but I am looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow!
I am heading down for a nap, a little late, but I’m busted tired. Emotional exhaustion is debilitating. I’ll feel better when I’ve rested a couple of years…. freudian…. I mean hours!
Thank you all for your patience, concerns, prayers and good thoughts. I so appreciate all.
Until I have energy to share again,,,,, xxxxxxx hugz
