Maintaining a positive outlook

Maintaining a positive outlook


Some of you maybe aware I have been dealing with a severe back injury for several years now. There are times that I am in tremendous pain. Which requires that I have to work harder to maintain a positive outlook and continue productivity. I had a long day yesterday which really took a toll on my body. I thought it appropriate to seek ways to change my state of mind.

We all deal with stress and negative thinking, some of us are just better at managing than others. Just like anything else it begins with education. This is a short video. Please try to view the entire video. I think it to be worthy of 1 or 2 minutes of your time.

    I’m a HUGE promoter of positive thinking. It makes a world of difference. Late last year I was diagnosed with depression & I started going to a therapist. They put me on medication for it and the worst thing is, is that it made it a million times worse. It got to the point where I was having panic attacks multiple times a day and one day. They changed my medication but it didn’t do much so I basically said “This is enough.” and changed my views on everything. Now I’m more happy than I’ve ever been and if it wouldn’t have been for me changing how I looked at everything, I don’t think anything would’ve changed.

    • Dacy! I can not tell you how I love you for this… My husband is into mental health. Hey and I disagree about this. They are way too quick to put people on medication. You didn’t need medication doll. You only needed to understand that you are in control of your thoughts. Wow I can not tell you how you have made my day. GEEZ you are something special beautiful beautiful girl!!

        Thank you. ♥ c: & They are way too quick. It was one assessment & they automatically said that they were going to put me on a medication for anxiety & depression. I told my therapist that I didn’t want to have to take a pill to make me feel right, because that made me feel like there was something really really wrong with my brain & it made me sad. She said that there was an inbalance in the chemicals that my brain was producing & the medication would help fix it. The one I’m on now has these insane side effects. (my doctor literally compaired it to LSD!) Not really bad side effects, just REALLY strange. (Ex. Outrageous ideas, talking more or louder than usual, being obsessively happy or agitated.) I think they just need to help people see that if you wake up in the morning and think “Ugh, today is going to be just as bad as yesturday.” than it will be. But If you have a good outlook, everything’ll be fine!

        • Hmm… I somewhat concerned. I am not a doctor but the side effects you are reporting is concerning. I think you are way too young for medication. From what I can see you don’t appear to have anxiety but I am guessing the depression is the result of the mean spirited children at your school. You are special and kind, today children aren’t rewarded as they should be for kindness. I think you should have psychotherapy. But you need a caring loving therapist who truly would like to help you. For some reason they are quick to prescribe medication. I think so because it makes them money, less costly than weekly therapy sessions. You are such a bright girl. When you have bad thoughts, just think ok I am going to look at the bright side of this situation. You have to condition yourself to think of the positive side. I know that you can. I so appreciate you sharing your story. I hope someone who has had a similar experience can read your story and have you as a role model. Thank you Dacy. I am concerned about you, maybe we can talk later about a solution, because I read your blog and doll the topics are not the topics of a person who is suffering from depression. Again thank you. You have really brought sunshine to my life.

            There’s much more to it, but I just didn’t think this was the proper place to say it. Haha, & I’m very glad. I love making people happy. ♥
