So we are living full time on the road in an RV and for someone who is used to a life of routine and planning, this has been a challenge for me.
Moving from place to place is difficult because once I feel settled, it’s time to move again.
Something I have realized though is that living simply is so much better for my mental illness.
My anxiety is soothed when I don’t have to worry about rent payments or moving an entire apartment of things or even having things in my possession that I don’t need.
Self-care is important too. Sleep in if I need a extra day of rest, take showers regularly, watch a movie with my husband and generally just take it easy.
Finances are still a concern, but not to the severity as they were before. I still pay for bills, meds, and necessities, but learning a new way of life is kind of exciting and even though it’s scary, it’s rewarding.
The best part? I got my hubby and three cats with me so I never have to be alone.
