I mean, it's not a huge thing, but for the last 5-6 months I have been at a real low and I'm slowly starting to resurface and get some sort of stability back. I've only missed one day at work since the 15th! I've had to leave early or come in late a fair few times but that's a lot better than where I was a few weeks ago.
I've even been able to take time out of my day to wear makeup on numerous occasions.
I was really proud of myself last week when I had showered for 3 days in a row and I told this to my boyfriend and he didn't understand how much of an accomplishment that was for me, but now it's been 8 days so I hope I get some positive reinforcement when I get home and tell him! I'm so excited, haha.
That's a huge accomplishment! Showering can be really draining. I think it's been like a month since I showered two days in a row? I shower more often when I have nice soaps and things to tempt me into the shower haha.
Congrats though! For me, it's such a huge relief to have energy to do things like shower and put on make-up. I'm suddenly like, "WOW! TAKE THAT, MENTAL ILLNESS." It's such a great feeling. <3
That's amazing, really! I'm excited for you, it feels nice when you're able to show your mental illness that you can do it when your brain is yelling at you like NOPE, LIAR. I'm currently struggling with a lot of executive dysfunction issues so seeing you overcoming them it's great!
