Thank you so much to everyone for the support and kind comments, likes, and encouragement on all my posts and especially throughout this frustrating time dealing with my anxiety and last psychiatrist appointment.
I still have struggled today and have just spent time kind of lying around – yes I know, not the healthiest thing. I did go out and just sit outside in the sun, trying to get some good ol’ vitamin D, and listened to music.
One thing that does always help me though is comedy. I absolutely comedy – I think every time I have been down, I can bring myself out of it with some type of comedy. It might take a bit of time, but eventually I am laughing so hard and my mind is distracted for a good period of time. Of course, the hardest part is getting myself to watch some comedy.
Tonight though, there were two shows on TV that involve quite a bit of comedy. Hollywood Game Night and Last Comic Standing. Now, I don’t normally follow Hollywood Game Night, I have just watched it here and there, but it is pretty funny. I have followed Last Comic Standing this season though, for the first time, and it always makes me laugh.
So tonight, I turned on the TV, because I have just kind of been lying on my couch, being a bum, ruminating on my problems, getting no where. I figured, what the heck, maybe TV will at least get my mind off of it. Thankfully both of these shows were actually on!!! Well, Last Comic Standing is actually on right now – so I am alternating between writing this and watching it 🙂 But it has really lifted my mood already.
Tomorrow I have my appointment with my therapist and hopefully that will help as well. Perhaps we can problem solve some of all of what I am feeling and thinking about everything going on.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone. It is amazing how much support I have gotten. Also, comedy is an amazing coping skill to bring you out of a bad mood – you should definitely try it if you haven’t 🙂
