I have taken a little dip...

I make no secret that i suffer with anxiety at times,mainly when i allow things to overwhelm me.
I take a daily tablet that just helps me take the edge of things, but just enough to help me learn how to manage day to day challenges. I do not suffer with depression or bipolar, anxiety is now becoming recognised as a condition of its own.
Well a few weeks back i thought i have been coping very well and thought i would stop taking my little tablet and see what was lurking without it, plus i do not like the weight gain.
After a couple of weeks i felt my morale dipping slightly and my chores seemed to take forever to do, i love keeping home and baking but i did not feel the enjoyment that i normally do.
This i believe was my warning, if i had only listened to myself and realised this was not the time to make such changes, but, no i pushed myself another couple of weeks feeling low, tearful and fretful.
Now this is the point that some say, this is what the tablets do to you but i now realise with the guidance of a trusted doctor there is no harm in taking something that gives you a helping hand.
I am slowly getting back on course, we have a 50th birthday party this evening, i am a little anixous but i know this is the anxiety playing tricks on me as anxiety likes to take you hostage.
