I think one of the hardest things about going through a difficult time is finding your own way of coping with it … which may or may not be how others would cope with it.
To be honest, I’m debating going back to therapy — though this time it wouldn’t be for my own issues (i.e., cognitive behavioral therapy) but rather situational (to teach me coping mechanisms).
Fortunately, I feel very loved and supported by my husband, family and friends … but it’s been difficult to not have my favorite outlet as a way to deal!
Anyway, in the coming days and weeks I should be able to express more here, but til then just know that even with all this stress and anxiety I’ve been feeling … I’m not turning to unhealthy behaviors but rather am trying to be kind to my body. It needs that from me, at the very least!
Hope everyone is doing well!!
