Wow...didn't realize how long it had been since I posted a blog! So knowing me this will be even longer than normal, seems like once I start typing I just go on and on and on lol


Divorce was final in September. Relieved to have that final and not feel like I'm in limbo any longer. Ex called me 2 weeks after that to let me know he was dating someone and it is serious enough that she had already met the family. Threw me for a loop. I'm happy for him guess I was just thrown for a loop that he got that serious with someone already. But it's his life. He hasn't contacted my son once since we moved out so obviously he is done not only with me but with my son. Hopefully this lady will be a good match for him and they will be happy.

Doesn't feel like I've been very busy but man time has flown by. I didn't do the sparkpeople virtual 5k that I signed up for. Walking was just too painful. However there is a color 5k walk about an hour away in March and I actually shared with a girlfriend that I'm interested in doing it so we're going to work on being ready for that one. Hopefully if I can drop some weight or at least get in better shape and be ready to start training about a month before hand.

I spoke to the same girlfriend about water walking together after work and so we started that tonight. I do much better when I know someone is depending on me to be there. Tonight we did 45 minutes of walking/jogging and 15 or 20 minutes of that with weights.

I met with my therapist a few weeks ago and decided to met with the one at their office that deals with the medicine. I meet with her tomorrow so we'll see. I feel that someone who deals with depression and possibly bi-polar meds will be more help than my general practitioner. I'm hoping between the three of us we'll be able to help me get things figured out. Then I just have to work at actually taking my meds regularly..as silly as it sounds I really struggle with that and no real excuse why. One more thing to work on :)

And speaking of something to work on I need to work on coming to sparkpeople daily and blogging more regularly as I do notice a difference when I do!

    Michelle,

    You are showing yourself to be a strong woman in spite of all of the challenges you deal with.
    I am so glad you are taking care of yourself through all of this, because it sounds like your son is going to need you to be both mom and dad for him.
    Single parenting is tough, I did it with 3 daughters for several years.
    We are all here for you if you need to vent, cry or just want to chat.
    Good luck with trying the meds, I hope they help you.
    Hugs,
    Belinda

    So much has gone on with your life. Sorry to hear about a divorce with a young son involved. Hope it was the best for you both. I hope your ex realizes his son's life continues with him or without him, but all are better served with him in all of your lives.
    Glad you have found a work out bud. It seems thats what you need. Hope you get the mental therapy component worked out. Good luck with all your adjustments in your new life.
