Hello, Friends! It's been awhile. It's hard to write, work, care-take, AND get the fifteen-plus hours of sleep I need when I bite the bullet and go back on antidepressants. Since I last wrote, I had a promising appointment with a new doctor, and I've been taking a low-dose of Lexapro for three weeks. I … Continue reading Down With the Lexapro Flu
I've shared in previous posts that I'm slogging through what feels like a significant depression. I feel like I can't move myself and trudge through the daily tasks. The simplest things take what feels like a herculean effort, and lately I'm just not up for any of it. Then there's the anger. So much anger. … Continue reading Does the Why Even Matter?
Friends. We have to talk. I need your help and input. I am knee-deep in my past life - in the form of pictures, wedding announcements, baby bracelets my children wore in the hospital. For the love of Elton John, y'all. It is getting so real in this organizing fiasco that is supposed to make … Continue reading Dealing With All the Past Life Fashizzle.
Sometimes I find myself full of advice. I have these sparks of wisdom, though it's rare that I share them for fear of looking like a know-it-all. I SO don't know it all. Occasionally, though, words fly out of my mouth before I'm able to hit the pause button and self-edit...and it's a good thing. … Continue reading Moments That Matter
Don't knock 'til you try it! I've been ranting up a storm, so I thought you guys might enjoy a break from my mopey, depressed gripe-fests. Let's talk food. In a desperate attempt to bring a little autumn into my life (have I mentioned that it's been 800 degrees and 1000% humidity in my neck … Continue reading Lentil Kale Soup – Sounds Meh, Tastes PHENOMENAL
The visit from the organizer has done a number on my psyche. It's jacked with my zen. Put a damper on my chi. It's been a week, and she left me with what one might call a manageable list. Except it feels like anything but that... I hate lists. Hate them. They don't give me … Continue reading Out With the Old
It's Friday...hello, call me Captain Obvious. I'm welded to my couch and have little interest in separating myself from it. This is the first day of the week where I haven't had to rush out the door first thing in the morning. It's been a busy one with no end in sight. So many thoughts … Continue reading Writing Through the Unpretty
I'm here, writing again. It's going to be painful, arduous, non-flowy. It always happens this way after a break. I haven't been okay for some time now. I mean, physically I'm okay. And really, I'm managing...but I'm far from thriving. The world and the lens from which I view it is that hazy gray color … Continue reading Drastic Measure Time
If I ever get around to posting all the thoughts in my head and notes scribbled in my journal, I won't know what to do with myself. It's been a hectic few weeks as we prep for a new school year while moving boxes out of our old house as we get it ready for … Continue reading So Many Thoughts on a Steamy Friday…
Hey, friends! I had to check out for a spell. It's been a busy summer - mostly positive things, so no complaints there. I'm just in a weird space of figuring out what to do in terms of blogging. I actually set Grief Happens to private with the intention of cleaning it up and possibly … Continue reading A Little Summer Update
