I want thank everyone enough for the supportive and kind words you guys offered me on my last post about depression. A few weeks ago I woke up with that same dreadful feeling and I thought, this medication isn't working! Exercising isn't working! I'm officially broken, aren't I?
Then I woke up the next day and I felt a little less dread. The day after that I turned the car radio on and hummed along. The day after that I found myself singing along and feeling a twinge of that old familiar excitedeness to live life. Oh, it's not perfect yet (not that I expect perfect) and I've got a ways to go that's for sure but I feel like my old self is coming back together piece by piece.
I've been less snappy with my children and my husband and I feel like they are responding in kind. I started to exercise and got a pedometer to track my steps per day, I am eating better and getting more sleep and it's all coming together and I can feel that it's coming together.
Isn't been a spectacularly stressful last month or so with my children, they each are struggling in different areas of their lives and it, of course, makes me struggle with and for them. We're all lucky to have support systems that we're all leaning on heavily right now and as a collective group I just know my boys will come out on top. It just takes time. And those kids are worth my time and I'm worth my time so we just keep plugging along and working toward the goal of being healthy and happy.
Thank you guys for the kind wishes, it makes everything a little sweeter.
This past weekend I went to New Orleans for The Blathering...It was spectacular and I expect to throw up a post about it very, very soon. I miss you all SO MUCH!
