I'm sure you've all noticed that I've been rather absent lately. I'd like to apologize for this and give you an overdue explanation. Last spring, before I started this blog, I got really sick. I was kinda terrified that it was something major. Luckily it wasn't as bad as I was imagining. Turns out I have a thyroid condition and my hormones are out of whack. The hormones don't surprise me really and the thyroid issue explains sooo much about my weight fluctuations and sleeping issues. And of course your thyroid controls everything so just makes the hormones worse.
So what does this have to do with my not posting lately? Well, even though I'm taking medication for everything now, there are some times that are worse than others. Especially when I get really stressed out, which has been happening a lot lately. When I'm in one of those worse times, I start getting depressed and overly emotional. The more stress I'm not dealing with properly, the worse the depression and emotions get. I'm talking laughing hysterically one minute and sobbing in the middle of the grocery store the next. And yes that did happen to me about a month ago. It was so bad that it was effecting my job. The day I started crying in the middle of Publix I had to call out of work at the last minute which made me feel horribly guilty and added to the funk I was in. There were a few days I didn't even want to get out of bed.
I'm doing better now, but I'm still not completely back out of the funk. While I was in the worst of it, I barely had the energy or drive to get myself to work or cook. Which means that swatching and blogging simply weren't possible. I am going to try to get back on track and posting again, but with the holidays coming up work will be getting much busier, and more stressful, so I may either not have the time or energy, physically or emotionally, to post on a regular basis. But I promise to try my best.
Thank you for reading this far and for sticking with me.
