Surprisingly, there has been lots of progress on this goal in the last few days. And if I’m going to be honest about it, its going to take me opening up more than I normally do.
If I really look long and hard at the issue, the fact that I feel like my day to day is out of control, its hard not to consider that maybe its really not. Busy yes, but out of control, maybe not. It’s quite possible that the issue isn’t my life, but me.
Maybe its my emotional state and my outlook on it all. Maybe this anxious, some days depressed feeling isn’t normal. Maybe I’m having a little postpartum depression and maybe I need a little help.
I’ve taken an anti-depressant for several years to manage my sever anxiety, which isn’t so severe anymore which is a good thing. But ever since last year when I went back to work and started leaving Brady behind I’ve been more and more sad. Then throw in a long hospital stay and then add onto that another baby to parent and less hours in the day.
So on Friday I went to meet with a professional and have plans for some therapy and medication management. I feel so great about it. I feel relief. I’m hopeful that this month really can be the month that I learn to manage my life. And I’m hopeful I can really learn to LOVE my life.
