A look into my struggle with depression and anxiety.

Last year I was giving devastating news of the passing of my brother, that was the beginning of my fear. Just a few weeks ago I was giving the news of losing my best friend and my only friend, literally felt like something had pierced my chest. 
My chest pains got so bad that I needed to go to the hospital in fear that I was having a heart attack. I feared death so bad because I lost the two people I was close to, but I didn't want to leave my kids. The doctors at the hospital asked me to be limited to the Psych ward for a few days. 
During my time there I meant someone that reminded me of my best friend, he helped me through so much in the week there. 
I was diagnosed with Bi-polar2 and anxiety immediately put on proper medicine the help me through. After being away from my kids I wanted so much but to be home, but my first day back home felt like torture and I didn't sleep at all. 
Days went by and my issues got a little better, I'm never going to be healed completely, but I am learning to control it better and with the medicine, it is really helping a lot. We do group three days out of the week, everyone is so amazing and kind. I feel more welcomed and free during the group. 
Today on 6/22/2020 during group it's the first time since last year that I haven't had those bad thoughts weighing me down, I'm getting better, and I doing good.
