Wow. All I can say is what a difference a week makes! I’m suddenly feeling like I’m getting my chaos-fighting mojo back and I. Love. It!
I totally get that this is a process and I won’t just bounce back from what I can only describe as the closest I have ever come to a nervous breakdown. I have had only one session with a fantastic and amazing therapist, who recommended I see her at least twice a week (truth hurts! lol).
Something perhaps more critical than the professional help piece has happened…I forced myself to be honest with my husband and asked for help! I like being super mom. I want my husband (and everyone else) to see me thriving. Unfortunately, in order to keep pushing through in the day-to-day mom and wife stuff, I didn’t do a great job addressing some kinda big emotional stuff. So I’m addressing it now. I’m lucky to have a very understanding and supportive husband. I’m glad he encouraged me to get a babysitter once a week (even though I have been very focused on saving money), reminding me that our number one goal right now is to have healthy and happy kids…and if Mommy isn’t
healthy and happy, neither are they.
Hopefully, I will be back to some semi-regular posting about regular minimalist paleo mommying things. I will also share with you any tips or insights I am learning about combatting depression and overwhelmed mommyhood.
Up next in the queue: The most fantastic way to make my hubby’s lunches for work OAMC style! Look for it this week!
Thanks for sticking with me and for the words of support and encouragement!
