Love Me Challenge Day 6

14 Jul


Day 6,

Hello future self!  I hope you are still alive, do you remember the days when you were convinced you weren’t going to live past 26; well present me is writing this at age 32 so you’ve made it this far.  You probably won’t remember the past, because we both know our memory sucks.  Here is some recent highlights that I don’t want you to forget:  2014 was an interesting year, most of it was spent in a deep depression but 20 something’s friend and you got closer and that really helped.  It’s probably one of the only non-dysfunctional friendship you’ve ever had.  There was that awesome pool party on the 4th of July.  You came out to your parents and then later in the year on Facebook.  You were hospitalized 3 times, but 2 out of 3 were really helpful.  In February they put you on Latuda which stopped the voices, first time ever and in October they added two new antidepressants that lead to some of the best moods for the rest of the year.  The middle hospitalization was at Heritage Oaks and you found out, you don’t like it there.  2015 hasn’t been one way or the other, your moods are kind of all over the place but the treatment team thinks you are making process.  You are in a year long DBT program.  You are putting in a lot of effort to get better and stay better.   I hope when you read this you have friends and a partner.  I hope you have nieces or nephews to spoil- or hey maybe even kids of your own.  I hope you are happier more and have learned zillions of coping skills.  But stay you.
