Constantly cycling the stages of grief on my cancer path
I’m sorry I have been rather MIA lately. The trauma and PTSD is so real on this cancer path. I had another breaking point on Wednesday, so made a call to my psychiatrist because I need better coping skills. It’s like I’m constantly cycling the stages of grief. I’ll be “okay” for a bit and then…sucked down into a depressive spiral. My nature is upbeat and positive, so it’s a huge sign that I need help when I start becoming negative. So, I will see my psychiatrist this coming Tuesday. I don’t know if my Lexapro has stopped working or what. All I know is, these uncontollable tears and negative mindset need to go. The stress of working full-time, being single and medical bills has depleted a lot of my creativity, too. I haven’t written anything original in two weeks. Ugh!
