Know a ‘Poor Me’ person? Don’t let them drain you.

I try not to do posts like this because I'd rather spread happiness instead of dragging my dark cloud over people. But sometimes I just have to get it out in fear it will consume me. Do you know someone who is Master of their own Misery? I do. And damn, is it relentless. Let [...]

I miss coffee

It's been the longest week ever. And it's only Tuesday. WTF. I seem to be in a cycle of one thing after another lately. When it rains, it pours, right? It all started over a week ago when the baby caught a cold, which hit a crescendo over the weekend with what I'm pretty sure [...]

Blue Sky Day

Blue Sky Day

Somehow it's been nearly a month since I've returned to work. It's incredible to me how fast a month goes when you're having, err, fun? More like when you're raising kids and working full time. I was driving to work today and thinking about how I feel leaps and bounds better mentally than I did [...]

My decaffeinated life

The fact that I've had to cut out regular coffee from my exhausted life has made me sad. And now, I've had to bid adieu to all caffeinated beverages. So long, Diet Coke. On the one hand, I've wanted to cut out soda for a long time. I'm aware of the warnings of artificial sweeteners, [...]

The Little Blue Pill

Ugghhhhhh. I don't really know how to segue from my last post about the Cat and Jack subscription box I reviewed, so that was my lame attempt. This post will go back to how I'm dealing with my anxiety and life in general. First, I have met with my therapist a couple times now and [...]

Sleep deprivation is the worst

This week has been better than last week, so that's a plus. We even had a couple days of mild 70 degree weather! My first session with my therapist went well on Monday. We clicked and it was a nice feeling to have someone to talk to that understood exactly what I was feeling. Motherhood [...]

Goodbye, dear friend

Goodbye, dear friend

I recently posted about how my anxiety had reached new heights. Last week I felt terrible, unlike anything I can remember feeling before. I have yet to figure out what exactly triggered it – maybe it's because my oldest turns 3 in a couple weeks, or maybe it's because I have only a few weeks [...]

My anxiety journey

To say the last few months have been exhausting is only the tip of the iceberg. It's been draining beyond belief and I've finally reached my breaking point. I've dealt with anxiety the majority of my life, but never recognized it as an issue until my early twenties. Even then, it wasn't anything that I [...]

What the hell is this?

What the hell is this?

Today is Friday, April 6 and it is snowing outside. Damn near blizzard. We're expecting 1-3 inches, with another round of snow on Sunday. This stuff has to stop. My baby belly refuses to get squeezed into my winter coat any longer. I literally had to suck in the best I could to get it [...]
