My Mind Never Turns Off

It’s been an interesting few weeks. I’m so tired of laying down and not being able to rest. My mind never turns off. I think that’s why I watch so much television. It gives me something to concentrate on instead of listening to the crap going on in my head.

I realized that I really need some way to control that. I need rest. Around the 10th of this month, I had a consultation with a rep and decided to begin trying out CBD for my anxiety. I was told it takes about 2 weeks to get into your system, so here we go.

I’m not interested in living the rest of my life on prescription drugs. I’m going to talk to my doctor about seeing what changes I can make towards living the rest of my life free. I know it will take a lot of work on my part, but it will be worth it.

Do any of you use CBD for anxiety or PTSD? I would love to hear if it’s working for you or not!

I am working on ME

I’m struggling to find words today.

Nothing is wrong or anything, I just feel “quiet”. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking over these last few days and I am trying to make steps toward quieting my anxiety. Yes, I’m on meds but do I really want to be on them for the rest of my life? NO.

I’m working on eating better and getting out of my comfort zone. Those 2 things are really big for me. It’s slow going, but I AM moving forward. One day at a time.

I got out this weekend with a friend and that felt really good. You really don’t realize how isolated you are until you get to step out and enjoy something. I thank God for my life and the support He has put around me. God has been good to me when I didn’t even know how to be good to myself.

Lord, continue to help me walk towards a more confident life.
