those are good things
remember doing good things will take a while to make headway
It will take even longer if a person does some of the naughty things. so no naughty stuff. each day you engage in the good stuff brings you a bit closer to feeling better. Know that, at first, your symptoms will likely be fierce. Please persevere. the goal is to get better.
1. everyday you should walk. keep up 2x a day then add more when you are feeling confident.
2. movies are fun. I took two of my kids 11 and 16 to the regal cinemas $1 movie summer express this moring. it was cute. So, if movies are your thing, keep doing them.
3. I like that you enjoy writing. That is a great hobby that could
turn into something lucrative. I have a friend whose husband is a pathologist. He likes to write creepy/horror/twisty short stories. He had enough stories to make a book. He got it self-published on amazon
I downloaded it to my ipad. he had some good stories. So even pathologists have some hobbies to unwind.
4. still no prodding/poking/monitoring your body. yes, i know it is difficult. but the more you refrain, the easier it is for your mind to calm down.
5. what other activities do you enjoy? Perhaps you can add those to your list of 'meaningful distraction'? There are many craft stores that have classes for jewelry making or knitting or ____ that are a pretty nominal cost.
6. a beautiful thing to do is giving back to your community. When I lived in Louisiana, I volunteered a good bit of time to social concerns at my church. Living here I volunteer my time with a dog rescue. At this point perhaps write down some service oriented things you find interesting. After you've gotten your feet wet in engaging in life a bit more, call around to organizations. these places are always looking for volunteers. there is something incredibly rewarding when you give of yourself.
