I am Still Here...

Dear Blog Pals,
I am down to 1 tablet of lithium from the 4, I was taking 7 months ago. I have been feeling amazingly well. I still have some anxiety at times but am reaching levels of well being that I haven’t in a long time. This is not a mania but a calmful joy as I told my therapist. I am BUSY, for sure but also happy and grateful.

I have not been doing a lot of writing except for journalling and emails.

Currently, I am organizing a talent show for a church gathering. I feel almost like a conductor in a marching band, for real this time, although tuba-less.

Thanks, Carol. I guess it's my 'turning 40' look. I will be 40 on 10th September, and really looking forward to it :-)

Wow Carol, glad to hear the good news!

Are you also going to be performing in this talent show?

Carol said...

Hi Su! Being in the 40's has been as great for me as being 13...

For sure, Aurora! News on that, later...

Did you catch the correction? I'm actually down to 1 tablet!

Good to hear you are doing so well. Keep up the good work. Do think that you will ever be the conductor of the marching band again? It was so great. I loved it.
