Day: December 2, 2012


In the past year, I have grown so much.

I’ve learned more about myself than I ever expected, both in good ways, and in bad.

Thirty-one has brought me from grasping at straws with my doctors to a new place where I feel confident in my care and treatment.

Thirty-one brought me my first confirmed pregnancy.

Thirty-one also took that pregnancy from me, and taught me what it truly means to lose.

While I am blessed to have so much support and to have had the chance to really explore my feelings over the past year, I am not sad to see it go.

I love that my birthday is in December.  It’s right near Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the end of the year…

My birthday is, in so many ways, an ending and a beginning.  A chance to start fresh.

I just get a little more of a head start than the rest of you who have to wait until New Year’s.  😉

Thirty-one is done.

Thirty-two is now.

This is my year.  I know not to put undue expectations onto life after so much time and grief has passed, but I just have this feeling.

I feel like 2013 is going to be the best year of my life, and I will be thirty-two for most of it.

And so, bring it on, Thirty-Two.

I’m ready.  🙂

Summertime Sadness

A safe space where I discuss the racing thoughts in my head, personal struggles, and day-to-day activities while struggling with mental health and mood disorder issues. My personal goal is to reduce the stigma that comes with mental health and mood disorders, by talking more about it.
