Some Good News

First of all, thank you Jennifer and Crystal for commenting on my last post. It meant a lot to me, and helped lift my spirits.

I'm slowly coming out of this latest funk. I know that depression is something that I will always have to deal with, and that's fine. But there are times when I can feel myself giving in...embracing the sick part of me because in some twisted way I am comforted by being able to label myself as Depressed. Those are the moments when things get scary....and when I find myself at a crossroads, knowing that the next small decision that I make could have a profound effect on the next few years of my life. I choose not to give in this go round, so we shall see what happens.

Anyway, this has been a pretty great week in my household. My husband got a much needed and well deserved promotion at work! I am so very proud of him. His new position is going to be a lot more challenging and hopefully very rewarding for him. The money is definitely going to help too especially as....I got my official acceptance into the Radiology program and will definitely be a student for the next two years! So things definitely seem to be falling into place for us...and I'm so happy about it.

So this last week I've made more of an effort to be alive. Less laying around, more participating in life. I've even gotten a little bit of exercise in, although no running yet. But we'll get there. I shall keep chugging along.


  1. yay!!!!! that is great news!! congrats to both of you!! more money is always a good thing! i gave up two of my 3 jobs in the past few months, which is going to result in a $12,000 decrease....not too happy about that aspect!

  2. You are so very welcome. You do sound like you are in better spirits:)

    When I stopped running for a while (several months) I was almost afraid to get back out there because I thought I would be back at square one where I couldnt breathe after 30 seconds of running. I was pleasantly surprised that it was like riding a bike. My time wasnt fast but I felt awesome getting out there and being ABLE to run. There has never been a time that I didnt feel great after a run was complete. No matter how tough the run can be during it, I always feel great after. And thats what keeps me doing it!

    It sounds like you are really making an effort to feel better. I am so happy to hear it. Keep on blogging girl, and I will keep on commenting!
