Where I’ve Been and Where Am I Going

I’ve been quiet the past couple of weeks and I’d like to explain why.

My mom’s birthday was mid September and it hit me far harder than I thought it would. I’ve been struggling emotionally since her death and grief seems to have taken hold of my emotions and just wasn’t letting go.

It was that deep blinding grief that messes with your judgement as well as your daily functionality. ( It sucks)

Does it make me happy to share this, not at all.

But I also felt that I should touch base and let you know what is going on and why.

We all grieve differently.

I lost my groove with ideas for blog posts and recipes it has undermined my confidence in bringing you quality content. That’s pretty scary considering…

Rick needs a HUGE shout out for being supportive and encouraging!

Yes, I went to see a professional because it is what I needed to do, home remedies just weren’t working.So now I deal with not only my diabetes medications but also a pretty hefty anti-depressant.

Being someone who is extremely sensitive to medication it takes me a while to get used to the side effects and honestly almost everything puts me to sleep. So please bear with me through this … it is weighing heavily on my heart and I feel like I am letting people down in so many ways.

I’m fighting through the side effects the best I can and will share something surprising but wonderful none the less…

Trim Healthy Mama is helping me combat the medication side effects ….

GGMS and the Shrinker both are amazing for helping me feel hydrated and giving me an extra boost when I need it.

Eating a meal or a snack every 3-4 hours is combating the urge to graze constantly… and I’ve lost 2 pounds.


I am going to work through this with the professionals that I have chosen, because sometimes it’s just not enough to use home remedies…. and That is OKAY!!

  1. I lost my mother two years ago this December. They say the pain never weakens; it only appears in fewer episodes as time goes by. I have found that to be the case for me. But, it will hit me out of the blue and send me reeling. I might be in a store or driving down the road. I never know when it will hit, but it always hits hard and deep. I pray the Lord would give you that peace which passes understanding. {{{hugs}}}
