2015

Where do I start… 2015 has been quite a roller coaster. All the ups and downs have been both fun and nauseating. Mainly nauseating. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and go through what happened this year:
November 2014 (I know its not 2015, but it seems necessary)- major panic attack
          -Led us to go to the doctor to have them diagnose me with major depression and anxiety, again (diagnosed for the first time at 7)
          -Met my current therapist and psychiatrist, got prescribed some different meds
January, February, and March- even with the change in meds, still feeling down and anxious
April- Went to hospital, transferred to psychiatric ward
          -this was the turning point of this year, I was an inpatient for around 4 days and then an outpatient for 2 days
          -this time tested me beyond words
May, June, July- “Honeymoon Phase”
          -returning from the hospital meant I had complete support, my family surrounded me with endless love and courage, this would fade as the year went on
August, September, October, November- Junior Year
          -filled with a lot of work and even more stress
          -all of the stress caused me to begin throwing up from the anxiety
          -felt like I was losing support from my family
December- PCOS
          -diagnosed with PCOS
If you didn’t notice, everything I wrote about is negative. This is how I have felt about the year. However, I am going to force myself to think about the year as the following:
November 2014 – major panic attack
          -was finally re-diagnosed (felt as though something was wrong for the past few months)
          -received the help I needed
January, February, and March- even with the change in meds, still feeling down and anxious
           -realized that I needed help
April- 
           -realized how strong I am
May, June, July- “Honeymoon Phase”
           -saw the amount of support I can gain, when I need it
August, September, October, November- Junior Year
           -overcame another obstacle and recognized my hard work and achievements
          -Started blogging, realizing that is the best coping skill for me
December- PCOS
           -found a possible reason behind my depression
This year was very crazy but it is very important that I don’t dwell on the negatives, but rather embrace the positives that came of 2015. Happy New Year and have a wonderful 2016!
