I know, its been way too long since I’ve last blogged. Aside from being truly busy, I have also felt sort of blocked, and unable to write. I am currently on a mini vacation visiting family and friends in NJ, and have a bit of time to spare. So, I thought I’d pop on here with a few updates.
I rode the rollercoaster of trial and error with finding the right antidepressant for me over the last few months and it was mentally and physically exhausting, to say the least. However, I am glad to say I have finally found a medication which makes me feel the most normal and like myself than I have in a very long time. I also started to see a therapist, which I find to be very helpful. I’d rather speak to someone and have a better understanding of myself and my anxiety/depression, instead of just medicating. Don’t get me wrong, I am by no means ashamed or against medication- especially if it improves my quality of life. However, I think its important to dig deeper sometimes, even if its scary. Maybe one day I won’t need to be on medication. Either way, I am proud of myself for not being afraid to ask for help and take care of myself.
I have been at my new(ish) job over three months now, and I love it. The stress level is nowhere near what it used to be at my old job. Everything that I am learning at work goes hand in hand with my masters program which I am so grateful for. Things are moving forward quickly for me at this company and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I am working hard and it is my goal to be the HR manager in the very near future.
Biggest news of all, my husband and I bought a house! Its beautiful and I am so happy we have something we can really call our own. We moved in last week and for the most part, we’re all settled in. Not too many boxes left to unpack. My husband has been working so hard making our house a home with many different projects. Everything has come out so beautiful and I can’t explain to you all how thankful I am for our home and all the beautiful memories we will make here. I never thought I’d live in Sweet Home Alabama but hey, we are loving it! I am looking forward to doing more decorating, and we are totally channeling our inner Chip and Joanna Gaines in this home. Look at this picnic table my husband made beautiful and it is now our dining room table! Up next, sliding barn door in the bedroom!!
While work, school, being a wife and dog mom keep me busy, I am promising myself to be more consistent with my blog because its important to me. Most of all, it brings me joy and doing more of what makes me happy is a MUST! 🙂
