Inspired by Linda.
In a meeting recently the phrase time-management was tossed around, someone compared themselves to me saying I can't work like he does, an accurate statement as I experience and manage my manic episodes pretty good using a combo of medication and holistic alternative approaches, like walking meditation, and enjoy walking into town, my favorite part of my day.
Today's destination the pharmacy and while there I sat down to chill some and met Linda. What types of conversations do people have in pharmacies... medications?
Linda and I hit it off as we both kept stopping each other saying remind me of your name again, give me a hint, the first letter and it stuck, as our conversation was on a topic we both know very well anxiety.
Linda talked about her husband, asked if I was married, we share pleasantries, as we both eased into our personal stories. Linda had shared that she had stopped her medication without doctors supervision, I said that's the worst thing you can do.
I shared that I take my script as needed and I split the pills when I need just a little extra when my alternative natural deep breathing exercise isn't working that well, she replied sounds like you have it mastered and I replied I do for the most part and that it takes work (practice) with your therapist and pdoc (short for psychiatrist).
Our conversation winded down as I needed to get moving, manage my time, squeeze in a sit-down lunch before squeezing in twenty minutes of Vitamin D, the natural kind..." SUNSHINE"
