Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic day. My day has been hectic, but then again when aren’t they?
I want to start off by apologizing. I have not been very consistent with the blog as of lately. To be honest, I have been struggling.
You see, the thing is, I have very severe depression and anxiety. for anyone who doesn’t know, this combination just sucks. Sometimes I have really really good days, days where I feel like I can do anything. But along with that I have really really bad days, the kind of days where just getting out of bed seems like more work than its worth . these past couple of months, I’ve been having way more bad days than good ones. Between work, and being mom and wife, I have not had the energy to do anything else. Its like, I want to blog. I have all these great ideas that pop into my head and I think “wow, that would be a good idea for a post!” and then I sit down to write and just don’t have the energy and concentration required to do the work. So again, apologies for the inconsistency.
The good news? I’m working on it. I’m currently working on getting as organized as possible so that even on my worst days I will accomplish something. But I’m not just working on the blog. I’m working on me too. While I know my depression and anxiety are bad, I also refuse to take medication for it. Working in health care I see too many people who end up on certain medications because at first they really need it, but they become so dependent on it that they can’t function without it. To be honest, that thought terrifies me. I would rather handle things on my own than become so dependent on a pill. So, I’ve started searching for ways to help myself cope. So far I seem to be doing ok and I’m sure the more I work on it the better I will be. *Fingers crossed*
So, this all being said, I have a few posts I’ve been working on that should be out next week! Until then, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Thank you for being so patient and kind!
