And what a month it's been. Today here in Canada it was Bell "Let's Talk" day, in order to raise awareness of mental health issues and to encourage people to talk about it. It gave me a chance to reflect on me and my family and all the crap that's going on. I've been in crisis-mode for the past month, dealing with a really difficult situation with my son and his Christian school/church, then my daughter overdosed on pills and had to go to the hospital...and so I was just surviving. (My husband also suffers from depression.) The immediate crisis has passed -- my son's in a new school and we're dealing with the hurt that was inflicted by the school and church; my daughter's home and doing okay. But it makes me realize just how hard it is to make myself a priority. Some days I really feel like I can't -- there are literally not enough hours in the day or enough energy in my body. But, I'm back. It's amazing just how much of a cycle this all is: feel like crap, eat crap, sit too much, sleep too little, feel like crap, eat crap...When I'm done here, I'm gonna get my lunch ready for tomorrow. That's always a key for me. No lunch plan, I blow it all day. So, here we go again. I'm glad you're all still here!
