On Jan 1, 2013, I really thought that this year might be more than I could handle. I had so little hope, and I was just overflowing with anger, self loathing and fear. With just a few weeks left of 2013, I’m happy to say that this year has ultimately been a success. I’ve put more effort towards recovery than ever before, and I’ve seen great results. I opened my etsy shop last week, and the first week has gone better than I ever expected. I’m starting the stillbirthday doula training in January. I’ll be turning 29 in March, and I feel pretty damn good about that. And if all goes the way we hope, we’ll be moving, buying a house and TTC this summer. I’m excited for the possibilities that 2014 holds - and not in a new year=fresh start kind of way. This may be the first time that I don’t want a fresh start with the new year. I’d prefer a great continuation of what we’ve already worked so hard to set in motion.

I know the feeling. I’ve actually given up drinking for the most part because 1. The two and sometimes even three day hangovers kill me 2. HEARTBURN and 3. it seems counterproductive to consume a depressant while taking anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds.
I got lucky that my mental health wasn’t shot today. I usually end up really depressed and anxious after 2 or more drinks, but I consumed a shit ton of water while I was drinking - ate a bunch of food when I got home - chugged a Gatorade before going to bed - woke up at 6 am and downed a glass of emergen-c plus another Gatorade - and slept until 1pm. As far as hangovers go, this one wasn’t too bad. My head ached all day, and the rest of my body hurt from dancing, but other than that I felt pretty decent. Really glad I didn’t do shots though … it’s tempting when you’re being offered free shots of Patron, but I’d be in a bad place if I’d gone there. I left shots behind in the first half of my twenties, and that is where they shall forever remain.
