Décor, Doctor, and ExerciseFirst of all, do you remember this post? Well, I loved that saying so much, that I had it made into a tile. Didn’t it turn out great? Granted, the picture was taken in my car, but I already know where it’s going; behind my kitchen sink. I was surfing an old classmate’s blog and found a link to her business blog, Home Chatter. Melissa was so easy to work with, had wonderful ideas, and I was surprised by the price. I highly recommend checking her site out; I’m not sure if she and her partner ship items elsewhere in the States but I’m sure that’s definitely something you can talk to her about. I’m looking at the picture again and I’m almost giddy in my happiness over how it turned out. I can’t wait to get home to set it up!
I had an appointment with my doctor this afternoon. I’ve had plenty of conversations lately with Jon, my mom, sisters, and friends regarding my post-partum depression. In fact, after a conversation I had with Jon on Wednesday night, I was very angry at my depression. So much so that I wrote a scathing post to my depression; it was posted on my blog for about 25 minutes before I pulled it off again. Basically, while I feel like my depression is better, I have felt so numb for the past 2-3 months; as though I’m a sideline player within the family. There are very few times that I’ve felt engaged with Jon, the kids, or even my sisters. I wanted to see the doctor to see if I was on the right medication, the right dosage, etc. After listening to my symptoms, my doctor thinks that I may be over-medicated at this point. (Excuse me?! Would you mind repeating that again?) After a great appointment, Dr. Susie and I made a plan to slowly (s-l-o-w-l-y) lower my dosage. And I’ve also been instructed that exercise is no longer an option for me, meaning I have no choice BUT to start exercising (for those that know me, they know how much I abhor exercise), something about exercise and endorphins, so now I’m going to have to figure out some way to get my heart racing for 30 minutes a day, 3x a week. This should be an interesting journey.
