Can you believe it???
One year ago my hubby left for Iraq. My heart was broken. I was a mess. I started taking zoloft, continued therapy, took care of myself. Made new friends, continued with old friends. Single parenting 2 boys who are doing great in school and out of school (I can hear my 12 year old practicing his guitar as I type. I have fallen more in love with my husband, and can't wait for his return. Everyday I face the anxiety monster and his friends the what - ifs and I should haves every day. And 9 times out of 10 I win. The off times are just that - an off time. Not the end of the world. Just a crappy feeling.
I am volunteering like crazy and I feel my creativity is at an all time high. So many ideas - and I have the opportunity and the skills to make them happen!
90 days or less until he comes home. I started Weight Watchers yesterday.
With him leaving last year, I was so afraid to go anywhere or do anything. All I did was to and from school for the kids, worked out and cleaned. So I was thinner, richer, and living in an immaculate house. Now thanks to zoloft and therapy, I weigh about 20 pounds more, I am shopping all the time, and my house is a mess. So now that things are more under control anxiety-wise, I want to work on the other areas - organization, exercise, relaxation, making healthy choices, buying what I need, instead of want...
Thank all for being here for me this past year - home stretch now!
