I’m considering going to a NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) support group. There is only 1 in my area and it meets once a month. I’m not sure if it is worth a try.
There are also a ton of Depression Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) support groups. I can’t tell if they’re free. They meet weekly, but the young adult one meets on Tuesdays, just like the NAMI group.
I don’t know if this is a stupid idea or not. Ginny says I should try to find friends by common interest, NOT problem. That makes sense, but this isn’t for friends, so much as for connection. That is similar…
I’m also signing up for horseback riding,
if once I get up the courage to call the stable. I learned to ride at Remuda Ranch in 2008. RR was one of the eating disorder treatment facilities I went to as a teenager. I haven’t ridden since 2009, but I fell in love there. While riding, stress and anxiety melted away. It was a meditative experience. I’m trying to take baby steps toward a life worth living.
