Dread and worry for Christmas
Had this session two months ago; feeling the same amount of gratitude for the same people and situations in my life now. As always, for my beautiful wife of twenty years, laying here beside me this morning before getting prepared to go to work today, to keep our family somewhat afloat. She works SO HARD for us! And asks so little really! I’m satisfied in my new role as support guy to her, making certain that she has as little “extra” to do as possible, so she can work to support the family. However, I am in utter dread over the current state of the family finances.
Also stepping up the amount and types of mental health care I’ll be receiving from here on out. Apparently, I’ve outgrown what my current therapy team is able to provide me, so I’ve been referred out to a different type of therapist and an actual psychiatrist...looks like I’ll end up medicated after all. Had my first session with the psychiatrist yesterday, and she’s already looking to medicate me! Not really what I wish to do, but she describes it more like taking supplements than psychotropic drugs, and I can get on board with that I suppose! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
