I remember one time when we had been shopping and he went into the parking lot. He walked around for a while looking for our blue station wagon. My husband was frantic and almost to the point of calling the police and reporting it stolen. Strange thing was we had old that car and were driving a Dodge mini van at that point and had been for almost two years.
Speak with your doctor about any adverse medical conditions that you’ve struggled with, whether it is an actual disease or a mysterious symptom that has been bothering you for some time. Most doctors will work with you to create a personal health plan of action that will serve as a guide for you as you take all recommended steps to eliminate the symptom through a healthy lifestyle change.
As time went on, the length I could walk got shorter and shorter. I could no longer shop because I couldn’t even walk from the front of the store to the back. I couldn’t even get from my car to the store. A trip to Hawaii was blighted because I couldn’t walk the half block to the beach, but once I was in the water, it was wonderful because I could use my arms to move around.
However long it takes you to get over them is how long you should avoid contact with them. Focus on your health and sanity and not what other people say or want.
When was the last time you apologized to someone you hated? At this point in time, Sarah hates Jack because her brain has fed her lies and twisted her perception about the way their life has been. She doesn’t love him right now and may take it out on him in a number of ways- a revenge affair for his “infidelity”, physical and verbal abuse, or whatever her mind may cook up.
This is something that you can and will get over although it will take time and a lot of work on your part. You’ll also do better if you have a group of friends who are able to help with the process of readjusting to the way you now need to think and behave. The other main ingredient is time. Just remember, though I admit it will seem difficult to begin with because you’re bound to be upset, that although your boyfriend is now your ex, it doesn’t mean that life has got to stop. Life does go on and you need to be ready to grab your share of the action.
Another misconception that many people have is about medication for depression and crazy. These medications are not cures, they are merely suppressants. People still have manic/depressive episodes even when they are on medication, these episodes just do not last as long and are not as severe. It needs to be kept in mind that the medications will help, but they do not bring about a miracle overnight.
Always keep your life goals in mind. That way, when a situation arises, you can decide whether it fits in with your life goals before even bothering to consider the situation further. If a situation is necessary because it falls in line with your life goals, that’s one thing, but if it’s at odds with what you want in life, find a way to deal with it quickly and decidedly.
