Stability & Mental Health

“You don’t have to be positive all the time. It’s perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared and anxious. Having feelings doesn’t make you a negative person. It makes you human.” Lori Deschene

I was thinking back to what my life was like before I had help. It was always in turmoil, uncertainty, and lots of fear. As I look back I can see where this affected my marriages. What I didn’t have was stability!

My life now is stable, no more roller coaster moods, hair trigger anger, and no more fear of tomorrow. Part of being stable is knowing what my finances are from month to month. It is also that I have put down roots in a neighborhood that is more like myself, senior and loves quiet nights to sleep.

I also give credit to my psychiatrist and the regiment of prescriptions that keep my moods stable. Now, I still get down in the dumps every once in awhile, but no major depression that would require hospitalization..

So dear reader, my feelings are this, for great mental a person truly needs stability!
