I'm Back

Friday, March 06, 2009      2 comments

I took a lil Spark break. Needed some time to regroup etc etc. Springtime is coming around. FINALLY. And as always, with the return of spring, I feel it's the return to ME (x3!). I made it through the winter relatively mentally ... Read more

Ringing in the New Year

Monday, January 05, 2009      2 comments

I took a lil break from life the last part of December. Clear my head, rest up, veg out a little. I feel great. '08 was a rough year. But I made it through. '09 can only go up (knock on wood). I ended the year pretty ok. A little stre... Read more

Getting to Know You

Monday, November 10, 2008      3 comments

I've seen this in various places and decided it'd make a good blog entry! 1. YOUR NAME: Bethany 2. ARE YOU MARRIED? Nope! 3. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? HOW MANY? AGES? None! 4. DO YOU WORK OUTSIDE THE HOME? Yes 5. DO YOU COLLECT ... Read more

Managing

Tuesday, October 14, 2008      1 comments

So far this September/October isn't going nearly as horribly as last year around this time. That's not to say I'm not having problems, but it's a marked difference. Since I started an additional medication well before this year's S.A.D. actual... Read more

Summer's ending...

Friday, September 05, 2008      3 comments

...which of course is a problem for me. The S.A.D. has started kicking in. Not much, but I can tell. I've been taking walks like a mad woman! A mile or two at a time in full on sunlight. It does a lot to lift my spirits. And help me manage... Read more

Progress

Friday, August 08, 2008      2 comments

I had my weekly therapy session yesterday. It went well. But at the end, my therapist said, "how about we meet in two weeks". YES! It's been a year and a half since I've started treatment for my depression/anxiety/ptsd/insert malady here and... Read more

Jump in with both feet and don't eat the candy

Monday, July 14, 2008      4 comments

So I went on a date last week. First date in forever! I was terrified. But I had so much fun and we really hit it off. Whoo-hoo! I'm so proud of myself. This should be quite interesting. This is my first time dating someone (not counting ... Read more

BUSY!

Friday, June 27, 2008      2 comments

Wow am I glad this month is almost over. This has been the busiest month on record for me. When I saw what I had planned for June, I almost passed out! June 2-5 conference in DC (which is thankfully local) June 11 kindergarten graduatio... Read more

Whoo!

Wednesday, May 21, 2008      2 comments

I feel like I've been slacking a little bit. I've been so busy since my cruise. Sorta kinda. My G.A.D. makes it hard for me to focus on more than one extra thing at a time. So when I'm busier than I'm used to it's kinda like dropping a raw e... Read more

Happy Birthday to Me!

Tuesday, April 29, 2008      4 comments

What? I can wish myself a happy birthday if I want! LOL. I'm a little melancholy today. Birthdays are kind of a bittersweet thing. A reminder of what I've not done in a wasted year, but also a chance to look forward at what I can do in a ne... Read more

Little Sad

Thursday, April 03, 2008      3 comments

I found out today that my cousin's husband was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq two days ago. He was younger than me - only 27 or 28. I can't imagine having to deal with being a widow at the age of 28. They were pretty much newlyweds, too! ... Read more

Blech

Monday, March 31, 2008      2 comments

It's Monday. It's chilly. And it's raining. My bus was late this morning. And last night's dinner did not, in fact, care to stay where it belonged. Ugh. But yet, here I am at work. Hair and makeup done. Outfit not horrible. I'll mak... Read more

Perhaps I'm Finally "Getting" It

Monday, March 17, 2008      6 comments

I'm not one to really weigh myself or measure myself on a regular basis. I don't want to discourage myself with the ups and downs of the expected daily fluctuations. Plus I'm lazy. I just try to get my required exercise and stay with my calor... Read more

Slow

Friday, March 07, 2008      4 comments

Today is a very slow day at work. There's hardly anyone here. I feel like I missed an important "don't come to work on Friday" memo or something. Oh well - that's more "me" time as I'm not in a mood to be bothered with some nonsense. I c... Read more

Whoo-hoo!

Tuesday, February 26, 2008      4 comments

This is a short one, but I'm excited! Last week I found out I'd have the opportunity to go on a free all expenses paid airfare included 4 day cruise from FL to the Bahamas. It's in April the week before my birthday! Of course I said yes. ... Read more
