WELL. It has been AGES since I have posted. So much has happened and is still happening. I don't even know where to begin, So I'll just post some random news and info.
Since my last post, I have moved to John Day, Oregon.
What's here? you ask. Well, family. And better opportunities for hubs and I. Well over a year ago, I fell off my curb outside of our apartment and banged up my left knee and really messed up my right ankle. (It still gives me fits sometimes, still) I was basically off my feet for a few months, as well as off work. No one could figure out what I had done to my ankle and in the beginning, I didn't have any insurance.
I ended up taking off work, and then later, having to quit work. I had a really hard time at that point with my depression. It had gotten so bad I was hallucinating and my anxiety was through the roof. I ended up having to go back into therapy because they wanted me to check myself in for a psychological evaluation. My poor brain, though. I truly thought if I checked in, I wouldn't be checking out. So I worked hard with therapy and new meds to get myself back to a normal where I could deal with people again.
Depression and anxiety are such a tough battle, but when you work at it, it makes life more ... amazing, I suppose. It's hard to put into words.
Since I've moved to John Day, I've been working, losing weight, feeling more myself. I've also been working on a huge writing project that I am not allowed to talk about just yet, but when I am, I'll be blogging about it!
I hope to finish up my trilogy soon. It's been sitting on the sidelines because I feel I haven't really done a good job writing it. I have been working on my writing skills, though and feel I have polished them to a nice shine.
So what have you all been up to while I was gone? Leave me a comment! At the very least, just say hi!
