Taking a break from depression – sort of

I can’t choose when I am depressed, but I can decide how I handle the times when I am not depressed. This week has been fairly nice – less depressed. I think my brain is just preoccupied with our upcoming trip to Yellowstone. I am very excited and nervous about this trip. For one, I have never traveled with a dog before. So I … Read More Taking a break from depression – sort of

Regret

I don’t have many fears. I am not afraid of heights, or going too fast. But I fear regretting something for the rest of my life. Making a decision that will live with me forever… you can’t turn back time. I don’t regret many things I have done. I don’t regret meeting my ex…my son’s father. With out meeting him, with out his lies… … Read More Regret

About the past… (TW: Depression, the hospital)

More on depression (so please be aware that there is a TW on this post). I can’t remember ever feeling free of emotions. I have always been anxious, a little paranoid about other’s intentions, and depressed once I hit my teens. It did not help that when I got into my teens I had some life altering events happen (the death of my nephew, … Read More About the past… (TW: Depression, the hospital)

To be or not to be…(TW: Depression, sensitive details)

Sometimes I can’t keep up with myself. Mental illness… For a long time I hid it. For many years in my teens, I let it live my life for me. I want to open up here about it… Major Depressive Disorder and Social Anxiety disorder, that is what I have, at least that is what I have been told. I have also been told … Read More To be or not to be…(TW: Depression, sensitive details)

Health and stuff…

Besides my VCD (vocal cord dysfunction)… I have been feeling relatively good this week. After the dog attack happened, I got really depressed and anxious. My body hurt, I wanted to sleep more and I was having troubles eating. So I went to see my doctor and had my normal check up while I was there. I saw the PA, since my doctor is … Read More Health and stuff…

Lillian is 18 months old!

Time flies when you are having fun being a mom. My daughter turned 18 months old yesterday and I still cannot believe how fast time is going by. I really do feel like she was born only a few months ago, but she is in fact a toddler now. She is almost walking (some of you know about her occupational therapy she gets a … Read More Lillian is 18 months old!

Custody arrangements

I have my son 11 months out of the year, which is amazing. But this month is the one month of the year that he visits his father in Indiana. (We live in New Mexico, so it’s pretty far.) It’s always hard to send my child off to see his father. I appreciate the fact that his father does see him in the summers … Read More Custody arrangements

Death and Funerals

While it has only been two weeks since my husband’s grandmother passed away, my own grandmother has also passed away as well a few days ago. I was told a week ago that my father’s mother had broken her hip, and working in healthcare, I knew at her age that she may not have long to live. So rest in peace grandma, her pain … Read More Death and Funerals

Dealing with Depression

This past month has been full of ups and downs. This past year has been full of a lot of joy, but also some losses as well. Last year we lost my husband’s uncle, and this year we lost his grandma. I am dealing with switching my son over to home schooling, and changes in my work. I work less than part time now … Read More Dealing with Depression

Valentine’s Day – keeping busy with my family

Well today is Valentine’s Day. My husband loved his gifts, as far as I can tell (I bought him some cool candles – don’t worry he likes candles) and I got him a blue tooth meat thermometer – yes he loved it! And I got him chocolates too! I got a waffle iron (YES I did want this, I actually asked for one), and … Read More Valentine’s Day – keeping busy with my family

Things are getting better, sometimes

This week my mother came into town to spend time with me and my children. It’s been nice to have her help around the house as well as her help with the children. She and my son went out to the movies to watch “The kid who would be king,” and I hear it was a good movie. The little cakes I made in … Read More Things are getting better, sometimes

A little normalcy

Juggling family life, work and any illnesses we suffer in our home (including mental illnesses) can take it’s toll. This is about my dog. She’s a year and a half old and just a wack-a-do. She is good around me and pretty much only me. So when the kids were in a room with her she would go bonkers, but now I have time … Read More A little normalcy
