First of all, thank you. After I wrote my last post I instantly felt a weight lift. Not all of the weight, but some of it. And it was just enough weight to help.
Since I wrote that post a week ago, I haven’t cried. I haven’t unnecessarily snapped at Matt or Riley. And I haven’t felt all that sad.
Yes, I’m still tired and I feel like that’s just the side effect of parenthood but I’m not so tired that all I want to do is sleep and nothing else.
It also helped that after I hit publish on my blog post my village reached out. My village of people sent me messages and texts and sincerely asked me how I was doing. I was sheepish in responses because I was partially embarrassed that I felt so low and partially relieved to admit that I wasn’t fine. I took help when it was offered and I stopped trying to do everything all at once.
I realized that I really just need to slow it down and I need to be okay if I don’t get everything I want done all of the time.
Basically, I’m working on it, I’m working on me. And thanks for sticking by as I figure it out.
