Still here, kinda
You might have noticed I haven’t been ‘around’ so much recently, or not!
Nothing major has happened, we’re all still here plodding along, but I’ve slipped backwards.
Just over 2 years ago I was diagnosed with severe postnatal depression and PTSD; I’ve been struggling every day since to find my ‘normal’.
Since starting this blog I’ve come to realise that this is my ‘therapy’, having projects to focus on has been oh so amazing at distracting me from the ‘darker’ thoughts which were all too consuming. You guys are also a great distraction, sometimes too good, sharing all those amazing ideas and inspiring stories.
But just lately I’ve lost my ‘craftjo’ I have a bunch of things I want to do, I just can’t ‘do it’, and in losing my ‘craftjo’ I’m slipping back.
I don’t want to, actually, I can’t slip back too far, not sure I could ever climb out of ‘that’ again, so, whilst I may be a little quiet, I’m still mooching around your blogs, getting ideas and inspiration. I don’t always comment, and I know I’m slacking on replying to emails, ‘talking’ whether through speech or type always gets messed up when I’m ‘slipping’ but please bear with me.
This blog and you gals have been like a breath of fresh air
I just need to catch my breath
Breathe a little calmer
Let go of the insignificant
And start again.
Which I now know I can do.
I just need to pick the pieces up and start again.
I'm going to end on a sweet note
Imagine Ahren and Ethan in the garden, jumping up and down, shouting at the clouds being blown away in the wind
“Clouds, clouds, come back!”
