Deep Breath, one step at a time..

Monday, September 02, 2013

I have been off of the site for a month. I went into a depression because I was overwhelmed. I am in the process of starting up a business and that requires me to have faith in myself which given my history is lacking. My only child moved just recently to Texas. Letting go has been quite a process and has made me look at a few things about myself. We have never been further than 10-15 min apart. He is 26. I think I am understanding the empty nest syndrome. This is good for him and good for me but a little scary as now I have just me to focus on.....deep breath.... I got complacent on this site and from doing that I realized I was giving up a large support system. Even though it is on-line for those that have reached out, it has meant the world to me. I thank you. I started counseling to deal with some PTSD issues. (diagnosed way before pubic awareness of this disorder.) Which I have rarely shared with anyone but is the basis of me more times than not following thru on what I start. I am scared. Now it is time for me to rebuild my support and focus on directly what is in front of me. Baby steps....I deserve a decent life and I want to pay it forward and share with others what I learn as I go. I have nothing to lose but the weight and my fears.

  Welcome back. I know that feeling of empty nest, but it is good for your son to be on his own. Take the time to invest in yourself and soon you'll be feeling great!
