I sincerely want to thank you all who commented on my last (deleted) post, you help in so many ways. I also received emails from a few special people, and am slowly working my way through replying to all of them individually, but can I just say
I deleted the post after realising that I didn't want to have that post as a focus of my blog, more that I needed a space to vent, and then to take in all the great feedback I got from it. It kept me positive and happy even through a re-volting flu this week, which left me in bed for 4 days, bah, I didn't let it beat me!
So with a combination of your good support, my meds (yes, I'm diagnosed with depression and have taken medication for about 5 years) and GP, and my (occasional) positive attitude, I'll make it!
Another girlie who's made me smile this week is over here, spreading a dose of reality! These are the spots in my house I 'move' things around, or walk over, just pretending they're not there, really....
chenille pile I haven't touched in weeks;
kid's bed as it stays during the week
the clean washing/ironing pile I get dressed from each morning
OK, so they're not as scary as some things I could have photographed, but if you came to my house and theses things weren't like this, you'd better feel like royalty haha (or look under the beds!)
Oh, and if you don't have a big bunch on online friends, or you do and still want some professional help, give these guys a call- you never want to feel bad enough to write that yucky blog post!
