Looking Forward

I know it’s not the done thing, but f@@k it, I’m doing it.

Yay me!!!

I’ve now done one whole week on reduced antidepressants for my PND and PTSD.

A week might not seem long to most, but if you’ve been “blessed” with the mental torture that is depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder then you know just how long a week can be.

168 hours where I have been on reduced meds.

And I haven’t broke.

I haven’t succumbed to the darkness

The negativity hasn’t stolen the joy that is in my life

I’m happy

Not nauseatingly so, I still had a good ol’ cry on Friday, but I was able to deal and process the emotions before they swamped me.

I’ve cherished the crazy hyperactivity that is mothering Ahren and Ethan.

I’ve loved the crazy unique relationship I have with hubs.

I’ve concentrated on what’s important, said ‘bollocks’ to what doesn’t matter and just enjoyed being me; Amanda, a mother, partner, sister, daughter and friend.

It’s so nice to enjoy being me again.
