Sun Coming Out After a Long Rain

Wow.  I just read through a few of my last posts.  I’m shocked that I was so depressed.  Especially now that I’m on the other side of it and feeling so so so much better.

I feel like I have a bright new outlook.  And I’m really enjoying my kids, too.  Maybe it was the medication change.  Or maybe it was, um…maybe it was…  I got nothing else.  It was definitely the medication change.

Last night a speaker from the Muslim Outreach Society came to present at my friend’s class.  The class is called “The Psychology of Death and Dying,” and the presentation was about “What Happens After Death?” from people of various faiths.  So I arranged for the Islamic part.  Brother Salim came and spoke.

It was great.  I felt so glad to listen to a muslim speaker, as it has been almost a whole year since I’ve attended any events at the masjid.  I listened to him speak and was reminded of all of the reasons why I am so grateful that Allah led me to Islam.  My thoughts of Islam and Allah are always there in my mind, but sometimes they are close to me and sometimes they seem far away.  Our goal as Muslims is to achieve and maintain a state of God-consciousness.  So just being reminded of that is something I appreciated, as I need more practice.

  1. I can really relate to your blog, just got diagnosed about 6 wks ago. Started meds which help a whole lot most of the time. Anyway, thank for sharing. Makes me feel like I’m not alone.

  2. I know where you’re coming from. Just remember it will get better. It is a life-long process and you will find over time what will work for you and what won’t. For example, for me, I take walks and write, because that’s what helps me keep on track. But alot of times, I have to force myself to do those things (if I’m not feeling good.)

    What have you been diagnosed with? Don’t answer if you’re not comfortable posting it. Anyway, I’m glad you realize that you are not alone. I write about my symptoms all the time.

  3. Hi LonLon558! it’s your friend Autumn, lol. I love your blogs, and posts, because you right about things that we all can relate to. I have Bi-polor and anxiety and depression, but the meds are finally helping me, although everyday I cannot be strong, I know I will recover. And I think that’s what life is all about, resilience(probably spelled that wrong) but I am so proud to call you my friend and love your honesty and truth you bring to wordpress! miss you very much, and we need to have a playdate one of these days!
    love ya!
