Today, Tuesday, September 12, 2017, I am grateful for meditation because it is helping me with my concentration, anxiety and panic problems. I have found out that I have been meditating at night when I am settling myself down to sleep. So, now meditating with the purpose to improve my studying, I am seeing tiny improvements but they are clearly there.

Today, Sunday, September 10, 2017, I am grateful for actually feeling stronger due to the support from my school. I understand now the need of having respect from co-workers or colleagues in my chosen career. Their support boosts my self-respect. No drug or alcoholic beverage could ever contribute to my self-esteem like this situation does.

I just love this picture!


365 Days of Gratitude


Today, Monday, September 4, 2017, I am grateful for the strength and courage I gain from my friends and my school community. They surround me with support and encouragement to keep me moving forward. I worked so hard all summer long facing the issues that fuel my mental health challenges. I know first hand how my mental health healing heals everything I do in my life. I journaled almost every day recognizing and accepting all I could think of that was an obstacle. I made a lot of progress and while my reading and retention are much better, analyzing is hard for me to do. It sets off serious anxiety that I am struggling to manage.

I had to email my teacher(who is the same teacher I had in the spring whose class I flunked) and my advisor to let them know what was going on with me. I also contacted the Disability Services on campus. I see my doctor this coming Friday to confirm and be officially diagnosed with
Complex PTSD.

What is saving me is the wonderful communities that help me get and stay grounded. I am stunned thinking where I would be if it weren't for the positive encouragement and simple kindness I gain from all of my friends.

You all give me strength and tenacity to keep moving forward.
I am blown away by your faith in me.
