As I reflect on my journey with anxiety and ADHD, I'm struck by how much has changed in such a short period of time. Just a few months ago, I was working really hard to manage my symptoms and feeling disconnected from my spiritual self. But now, after seeking help and exploring new tools, I feel like I'm starting a new chapter in my life.
One of the most significant changes has been the introduction of medication to manage my ADHD symptoms. At first, I was hesitant to try medication, worried about side effects and the stigma attached to taking medication for mental health. However, I am now incredibly grateful that I gave it a chance, as it has made a significant difference in my life.
I was inspired to try medication after reading "First We Make the Beast Beautiful" by Sarah Wilson. The book explores the author's journey with anxiety and her search for effective ways to manage it. One of the things that struck me about the book was how open Wilson was about her struggles, and how she was willing to try different things to find what worked for her. Her willingness to share her story and the tools she found helpful encouraged me to do the same.
Since starting medication, my personal connection has become more fluid. My mind is no longer racing with a million different thoughts, and I can focus on the present moment. I feel more in control of my thoughts and emotions, and I'm better able to manage my anxiety.
To celebrate this new beginning, I've decided to redesign my website. It's something I've been wanting to do for a while, but I've always been hesitant to take the leap. But now, as I embrace my anxiety, ADHD, and spiritual self, it feels like the perfect time to make a change.
The redesign will be more than just a fresh coat of paint - it's an opportunity for me to share my story and connect with others who may be going through similar struggles. I'll be incorporating more content about anxiety and ADHD, as well as mindfulness and spirituality, in the hopes that my experiences can help others who are on their own journey.
Of course, I know that my journey is far from over. There will be ups and downs, setbacks and triumphs. But I feel more equipped than ever to face whatever comes my way, thanks to the knowledge and tools I've gained through my experiences and the guidance of the book "First We Make the Beast Beautiful".
