To Suffering Servant and Friends

Hello Friends – I just wanted to let you all know that I do apologize for being away for so long. I know that all of you understand that I am very busy with school and time does escape you more often than not when you are kept busy. I see that I have written on October 25, 2006 – just three days ago – and once again I am with a good friend of mine and we have gone to the library – still there actually. I am doing just fine. I have been going to my counseling appointments and doctor appointments, and better yet, I have not had a panic attack since October 12, 2006. I do not even remember if I even wrote that I had six panic attacks from October 2, 2006 thru October 12, 2006. Ever since October 12, 2006, I have had no panic attacks.

Today, in Wisconsin, even though the weather is chilly for the month of October, the sun is out and it is warm when you are not in the shady areas — the sun feel warm. Time to get ready to pull out the winter jackets, though. It is a little too chilly for my taste … muscles and joints just can not take it every single day of the winter months.

I realize that I have only written one time in September. Once again I have been busy with school and my personal life. As a matter of fact, I have two lives to live at this my personal and school/student life. IO have been doing very well in college and I have a good reason to be a very happy person. Anyway, with my last entry being on the fact that I have been having trouble sleeping, I have to say that ever since I have had that problem, I have had not that many sleepless nights so I have them just about under control. As a matter of fact I had, the other night, fallen asleep while my friend JS was on the computer and she tried to wake me up by calling my name and touching my arm and I was out like a light bulb sawing trees, lol. I had awakened at 10:15 p.m. and noticed she was gone and had left me a note a short time later. I felt embarrassed but I was told not to feel that way. JS is a very good friend!

So much has come and gone since I have written in September. As a matter of fact, I have been getting out more and going to the library at least once a week or so – sometimes twice a week with another friend of mine (JR) when she goes to the library. I have also been checking out DVD’s and watching them at home. As a matter of fact, my DVD player has been running more in the past three to four weeks than it has ever run in the past two years! LOL…

I know for a fact that getting out more has been helping my anxiety and depression stay away — Even on a cloudy day.
