I have written about my struggles with post partum depression before. Some weeks are much better than others. This week is not turning out to be one of the easier weeks. Things that are not usually difficult are seeing almost impossible. Things that would normally bug me, but I could brush them off, they are sticking with me like glue and dragging me down.
I am working to let go. I am trying to take it one day (sometimes one hour) at a time. And it is helping. But it means cutting back on some things. So I am taking a small blogging break. I will be back in a couple of weeks. But right now I need time to settle into new routines and figure out time management again. I need to spend time with my kids and enjoy my life.
I also need to reprioritize some things in my life. I may need to let go of some commitments I have made. But I need to think about it.
I need to try and get through this without medication, and I know that I may need it in the end. However I need to try some other things first. Hopefully taking some down time will work.
I'll be back soon!
