Yesterday, I decided to start making some changes in my life, that I know will have a positive impact on my mental health. To begin with, I stopped reading and watching what I call, the negative and depressing news. I deleted my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. Then I went on to cancel all the series that I had set up on my DVR. I followed that, by deleting all the TV programs that I had previously recorded. My next move is to stop wasting my time, by binging on TV programs.
My explanation to my actions is, that I want to start living in the now, not yesterday and not tomorrow… NOW! If I get to catch a TV program when it’s on the air, then good, if I don’t, it wasn’t meant to be.
My way of looking at it is, that sobriety, talk therapy and crazy meds have helped me deal with my weekend binge drinking, Bipolar II and OCD symptoms, but I have to find productive ways to spend my time and stimulate my brain.
With that said, I am Audi 5000 y’all 👊🏾
