30 Days of Thanksvember - Day 6

Today I am thankful for Cipralex and other professional help that's open to me, such as the Canadian Mental Health Association.

No drug is a wonder drug. I've struggled since August 2011, when I began taking Cipralex, and while I've made incredible leaps and bounds, a lot of that has been me pushing, straining, fighting, learning, and coping. Cipralex calms the racing thoughts, giving me a strengthened springboard from which to heave myself from. It gave me some unpleasant side effects at first, but those are long gone now.

It helps me. It doesn't fix everything, but it helps me as much as it can. And I'm very thankful for that.

And I have so many programs available to me. I don't feel alone any more and I feel as though I can easily reach out and grasp someone's hand to further save me from this drowning.

My wish for you is that you never-ever feel alone . With my depression - the year long gratitude journal helped me so much. 5 things everyday. Some days I didn't think I could find 5 things because I was feeling so low -- but it was amazing to go back and read it. Still is. Love you <3

Visiting from Welcome Wednesday. Glad you found something that helps. I used to struggle with depression and anxiety too. Having my baby helped, then discovering essential oils has made.such a difference for me. Meds were scary for me. Glad you have help and options.

This is such a great idea! I miss celebrating Thanksgiving; I'm Canadian but living in England now and we've kind of just stopped doing it because it's obviously not celebrated here.. :/

Found you through Welcome Wednesday! Hope you'll stop by, say hi & maybe follow back :)
