I'm back! Did you miss me? I missed you. I've now been back to work for 3 months now, and I happy to report, all is going well.
The transition going back to work wasn't as difficult as I imagined it would be, but isn't that how it always is. Imagining things to be much worse than they may be. Doesn't matter how many times we have been in this position and its turn out better than expected, we can't help but let our programmed way of thinking go there.
As I'm still learning to deal with that programming, what I have learned to do is not let that consume me to the point of paralyzing anxiety. Depending on the situation it can be quite difficult. Lucky for me, going back to work wasn't one of those situations.
I'm very fortunate to have return to a very supportive and understanding workplace. We have both done our best to make the transition a success, so far so good!
I'm hoping to get back to my blogging and continue sharing my journey with all of you. I have made so many wonderful and inspiring connections through this blog and hope to continue to inspire everyone to share their mental health journey too. You aren't alone.
