Shortly after these photos, however, I came down with a very nasty flu. I hope you have managed to avoid it this year because it is not pleasant. When I can manage it, I drag myself to the couch. My husband and I are working our way through Inspector George Gently on Netflix, after having recently finished Sherlock. I feel like a lazy slob, but there's not much else one can do with the flu.
I thought I should update you. Recently, I wrote about my experience with depression and anxiety attacks. A lot of my anxiety centers around health concerns, but despite this winter sickness I haven't had a full-blown panic attack in weeks. The medication - minus some pesky side-effects - seems to be really working for me and makes it easier for me to do the therapy. Every day has its challenges, and I often have crumby moments, but for the first time since October I feel mostly like myself. For the first time in ages I am (for the most-part) optimistic about the future, and I'm very grateful for that. I'm not sure how I will be tomorrow or next week, but right now - even with the flu - I am okay.
