Om, Yoga

I have been going to yoga regularly again. For those of you who don't know, I do Bikram yoga, which is a series of 26 asanas (poses) preformed twice each in a room heated to 104 degrees Farinheit. I am not big on the Spiritual aspect of yoga, which is one of the reasons I stayed away so long even though it's supposed to have these great benefits. However, the studio I go to doesn't have a lot of wierd spiritual mumbo-jumbo with their yoga. They will spill out the platitudes that come with yoga (accept where you are today, etc); however those are usually things that I need to hear.

Yoga keeps me sane, I find that if I make time at least twice a week I will feel close to normal almost 100% of the time. Although the last month has been rather a challange for me and my 'feelings'. I am not sure if it is the changing season, which can affect me, or the dose of xanax I took about a month ago. Either way, I've been feeling pretty good in the last couple of weeks, now I just need to stop worrying about feeling bad again. Isn't that the worst thing about any anxiety disorder, the worrying about feeling bad in the future? I think it is...

So off I go into the wild blue yonder to attempt to wrestle all my feelings and gain control over them. Wish me luck!

Well take some Vitamin D! I take 1,000 IU 3X a day - it helps with SAD - which I am QUITE often.
I'm sorry I'm the only one commenting here. I have a thing on my blog that tells me when you posted. :) It's on Google.
So ... call me - I'll tell you what else to do .... :) but you already KNOW what I'll say - right? ;) That's me - predictable. Love you and relax! Breathe deep. And by the by - I RAGE against the machine when someone says - "Accept where you are today - WHAT???" Just MAKES ME REALLY ANGRY! But that's just me! ;)
