Today in my life.....

 I have no kids....
And it's just WAY to quiet in here.
My daughter has taken my two youngest, 
ten and five to her house for a couple of days,
because it is spring break!!!

My fourteen year old ran away about four weeks ago. I don't want to sound nonchalant
about it, because I am far from it. If any of you are familiar with my review/giveaway
blog '4 the LUV of SaNiTy' you will know that I blogged a bit about it there, and then went
missing in the blogosphere for a few weeks. Basically I went missing EVERYWHERE
for a few weeks, I was told that I just stared off into space, and I know that I did a whole
lot of crying. When it came time to do anything that had to do with the younger kids getting
ready for school or doing their homework, I had to just fake a smile and basically my older 
son (almost 20 in three weeks!!)  totally took over. I can't thank him enough. He moved right
 back in and took over.

Since I have GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder),
Sciatica, Lupus, and Fibromyalgia, just to name a few..
I don't want to sound like a pity party, if this is your first time meeting me....

My Dr. started my on an anti-depressant, and I do believe that it has kicked in and
is working. Some say that it is in your head. I wasn't really thinking about it either way,
just simply taking the pill with the rest of my pills that I take at night, and then
yesterday they called me to see if I thought it was working, I asked my son what he thought, 
(my oldest) and he said that he thought it was working!!! 

Today while I was posting a couple of my giveaways on Facebook, 
I ended up posting an update and a photo on my status and then commenting on
a few of my friends' statuses as well, and low and behold if I didn't catch myself with a 
big old smile on myself and the next thing I knew, I was laughing :)

So...I think that either the pills ARE WORKING,
OR, like I blogged about on my chronic pain blog, I faked it till I made it :)
So, even though it is just a little too quiet for my liking today.

I have decided to make the best out of it.

I have decided to read to my hearts desire :) I have many, many
book reviews coming due anyways. So I will use
this time to not only due what I love
so, so much: READING.
But also, to reach a goal that much needs reaching!!!

Have a great day everyone.

((Hugs)) to you and yours!!



  1. Nice Blog! I enjoyed looking around and can’t wait to see your future posts! I’m a new follower Happy Saturday!! I would love for you to stop and take a look at my blog as well! Thanks!

  2. Hi..Nice to hear from you again. We are only moving to a smaller cottage 4 miles down the road but we have to downsize bigtime. It's cheaper and the utilities are 1/3 of what they are here. So we'll be there until our cases go through with disability. Glad your son is home. How is that going? There's nothing wrong with anti-depressants or anxiety meds. They do work in the right conditions. I've been on Zoloft for years but lately it's not enough so they added me on Valium when I feel the need which isn't too often but when I need it it works. Helps keep things in perspective! Thank goodness for your older son! Gotta run. More packing to do. Sending big hugs!

  4. Nice blog friend! Nothing wrong with a little help from the MD/RX world. Hang in there. The sun has to shine on a dog's ass someday. Prayers for you and your family coming from SOFL.
