A lot of good news [Aug. 22nd, 2003|05:26 pm]
Amanda
[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Well, I don't really have much to talk about today, but I'll try to find some interesting things to post. I added Crystal's music class, and she added my PE class. I guess a lot of people had a similar idea, because we had to wait in line for over an hour. Anyway, at least we have that taken care of. And at PE today I was able to walk the whole mile without running--I was extrememly tempted to, but I didn't. I know this sounds weird, but I'm so proud of myself!
And yesterday's counseling session went really well--we're thinking of taking me off my medication and, if I seem to be doing okay without it, I can stay off it and eventually get out of counseling. I'm bringing the copy of what I've written for my book so far to next session, and my counselor also recommended that I bring one to Stanford for my next visit.
Oh yeah, and I'm crying A LOT lately--whenever I think of how much I've improved and how good my life is right now, I start to cry. And also when I think of the increasing number of people in the world who are going through what I had to go through. I'm saying "had" in the hopes that I'll never relapse.
Anyway, I feel really good--not about the world, but about myself, and I never thought that would happen. And I feel good about people as well--people care about me, they care about others, and I care about them. So it kind of goes in a circle--me, others, them, and it's a good circle, like the circle of life.
Okay, now that I'm sounding really weird, I'd better go. Sorry if you had to listen to my insanely long rambling. Anyway, thank you to all of you, on and off LJ, for being there.

Thank you so much--I like your journal as well. Yeah, having a sibling at school really helps. I'm glad you were able to have your sister at school as well, and although it may be hard for her without you, I'm sure she'll be all right in the long run (speaking from a little sister's point of view).
That PE class doesn't sound like fun--I'm glad you're done with it!
