Thank you for sharing your story, Kestley! I’ve been in treatment for a few weeks now, and I think I may be in the “regression” phase you describe. I haven’t posted anything on Medium in about two months now. It’s just seemed like so much effort to sit down and write, especially with working, being a mom, and going to treatments 5 days a week! But…I have noticed a HUGE change. My mood is brighter, I’ve caught myself smiling, and things just seem easier. I’m actually excited some mornings to get up and start the day. I can’t even remember the last time I felt so good.

I’ve had a few tough days this past week, where I started to fear that maybe it wasn’t working after all, but your story has given me hope so thank you! I wish you the best and please keep writing!

Mommy. Wife. Writer. Lunatic. My debut poetry collection, “The Weight of Need”, is available on Amazon.
