Do I see an improvement?
Dare I say it? Wannabe has been well a bit more tolerable the past two weeks.
Perhaps her medication is working better? She has had a couple meltdowns,(one that
would rival any three year old's temper tantrum) but in general she has been more pleasant and easier to be around.
I know she has a boy in her life, but the timing also points to a favorable
medication reaction. This really is a blessing as anyone who has ever suffered from
depression knows that the right medication mix is not easy to achieve
She has also been to church more often, going to a retreat and going for a youth
group with her best friend. Next is to get her involved in more social activities.
We have found a counselor who is very experienced and quite how can I say "real" in
her approach. It is important that we get to the issues and directly to them and
deal with them, not just sugar coat the issues at hand.
Well, if I have learned anything the main issue is taking life day by day, hour by
hour. Staying in the moment is not always the easiest, but it is much more pleasing
when the moments are happier.
