Enjoying the cooler weather - but still struggling.

Monday, October 21, 2013

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, but it just doesn't feel the same this year. The weather has turned cooler and the leaves are changing. Usually, I start feeling excited about the season and getting ready for Halloween, etc. This year, I'm going through the motions.

I talked to my doctor on Friday and she's checking my thyroid levels and some other things. She's going to get back to me today or tomorrow. I guess her thoughts are the depression medication wouldn't suddenly stop working overnight. It would be a gradual thing. So she wants to see if my thyroid has changed, or if it's a hormonal shift.

We had a great weekend with the kids. Saturday morning, I sent Daddy to soccer with Kate so that Matthew and I could have some time together. I think he was showing signs of needing some time alone with Mommy. His big sister adores him, but because of that, she is kind of in his face all the time. Then I took time to hang out with Kate in the afternoon. Shopping, cleaning, and making a Gingerbread Halloween Village. Sunday was the Pumpkin Patch. Both kids seemed to have a blast. Matthew was beyond excited about the tractors and Kate was first in line for face painting. Oh yeah, we got some baby pumpkins too. HA!

So, I have mixed emotions today. We had a fun weekend together, but I'm still struggling with just feel happy and good. I got up and worked out this morning, even though I really just wanted to stay curled up in bed.

I'm keeping my hopes up that my Doctor can help! In the meantime, I have lunches for the week and my workout plan is in check.
