Of course another factor is just general aging. I updated my intro on my youtube channel (which I've also been cleaning up and organizing, see playlists) from one I had done four years ago. I'm actually not complaining about the issue of aging, esp. since I love that video on Fabulous Fashionistas! What bothers me is the evidence of depression and emotional eating, i.e. pain, which I'd much prefer to keep private. But I'm thinking of Brene' Brown's encouragement to be authentic about our true selves, to be more authentic, as a way of reducing shame.
I also wonder if being 2/4 is a double whammy. My energy is quite low, and often sedentary, and I'm now paying for that. I also sit all the time for my work. And I'm often absorbing a lot of other people's emotions. Also my secondary nature is quite perfectionistic, so I'm often way too hard on myself, just by habit. I think this combines as a lot of stress on my body. I'm also pretty sure my adrenals are shot from childhood stress and work stress. But I am taking adrenal supplements and also addressing my thyroid again and taking prescribed Vit. D, so hopefully things will be looking up. And I began walking daily a month or so ago.
You may recall from previous blog posts on Depression:
