I am writing this because in the past few days, I havn’t been feeling that brilliant. Our mental health rarely stays the same and often goes through peaks and troughs. For me, it is likely that I am hormonal due to withdrawing from one of my medications (which controls female hormones).
I do feel very tired and a bit low some of the time. However, I am able to distract my mind and combat it through being busy at work and seeing friends or my fiance when able.
Even work I normally love doing feels exhausting this week- but I am trying to do the best I can.
Its important to have space and time for me. My family have been really helpful too.
There has been a lot of really exciting things happen and I am trying to keep afloat and make sure I practise lots of self care.
Things feel a little bit ‘meh’ right now. It could be that having returned from holiday and the isolating nature of my job means that I may be feeling less happy than normal. It largely does feel hormonal as my hormones are currently changing level.. so I am going to give it time too.
What I do know is I am very excited about my book project and other writing projects and I am just going to pace myself and take it day by day.
How are you feeling? Do you ever feel like this? I really try thinking positively but sometimes you just feel like you need a break.
