It honestly has been so good to hear the feedback on my blog. It truly means so much to me getting to hear from each of you, and also knowing so many others deal with January blues or depression. I’m not looking at it like misery loves company, but how we can support and learn from each other.
I did want to give an update on how things are going once I have gotten past my January. They are much better! I had sat down with my doctor and really explained my struggles and that I needed something different because it wasn’t really working. I wanted to make sure she understood the magnitude of my struggles. They now have a genetic testing that swabs the inside of your mouth to determine which medicines work the best with how your body processes them. It will look at each type of medicine and let you know if you are on the best, or an okay option, or really should change medicines. I decided it was worth the $30 to run the test and we followed it’s recommendation for what I needed and I am starting to feel like a million bucks! That is nice. It is nice to be excited about things and seeing past waking up each morning. It is night and day how my brain “feels”, and that is a good thing.
So in the process of me leveling out my life, and acknowledging how much of a recluse I have been for the past two years. It was a slow progression, but I believe when I went thru my divorce I made decisions based on my life at that time. I got a great little house that was enough for my dog and I. I have loved it here and it has been a simple and a comfortable home, but it has made me realize how my house is not very conducive to having company. More than two people it gets a wee bit crowded. So my eyes are on the look out for a more permanent home for my next adventure in life. Perfect time for spring cleaning, sprucing up things before I put this house on the market and embracing and continuing personal growth.
Challenges and adventures are what make me feel alive so I have the best adventure coming up in March, celebrating being 40 with a few more bucket items!
