Light Where there was Darkness

Brighter days have come! I’ve had many good weeks since my last down that ended on February 16. Although, I’m holding my breath because I never know if a down is just around the corner. I’m hopeful we are over. I’m ready to be over. I’m stronger.

Today is a big day. And I have a few busy weeks ahead of me. Next week is the kids’ spring break, so I’ll be actively visiting museums, setting up play dates, and visiting our favorite playgrounds. I was also invited to teach yoga at a few kids’ camps during spring break.

We booked our tickets and will travel to Spain in April. We’ll be visiting my husband’s ninety-year-old grandfather, my cousins, and his uncles. I might meet up with college friends around Spain. I went to college in Belgium and have many friends from there who will be traveling to Spain for their Easter holidays and I might meet up with some of them as well. 

In the mental health world, I have an appointment with my psychiatrist on Friday to monitor how I’ve been doing on the reduced dose of my night medication (olanzapine). So far so good. I’ve been sleeping well although sweating more, which I will mention. I’ve also reduced the day dose of venlafaxine and will mention that to him. The functional doctor wants to see me this Friday to draw blood as well. We’ll check out how I’ve been doing on the progesterone and testosterone treatments along with the supplements, which include vitamins D, B12, as well as zinc and other minerals.

Today is a big day because I have an interview for a full time job. I am a little nervous to jump back into the Corporate world, but I am also motivated to do it for the family and for me. But don’t worry; I’ll still keep writing here!
