Yesterday was better than Monday. Today I woke up with my stomach clenching and shoulders tensed in anxiety. Not so good. It's kind of worn off so we'll see how the day goes. Just trying to stay focused on work, God knows I have enough of it.
Because I'm female, one thing I'm trying to do with this journal over time is to track whether my mood fluctuations change at specific times of the month. I have always been pretty sure that this is NOT a factor with me, but having it in writing will help me double check that. I do know that being on birth control pills (for 6 months only) definitely contributed to my depression at that time and were not a positive thing. So hormones do affect me.
