It hasn’t been a great year so far and truth be told I haven’t really been myself since August. There’s been way too much stress and feeling hopeless going on since then that I was starting to wonder if I’d ever be okay again.
Usually a new year brings some hope with it, but this time it was just more of the same. Poor hubby has been ill with flu, colds, sore throats, and just feeling rubbish ever since New Year’s Eve. I’ve managed to avoid catching any of it thankfully, but I’ve felt run down as I’m sure my immune system wasn’t happy to fight off everything.
I still have too much stress and general unhappiness around specific things and feeling so stuck, which is very frustrating.
But there are silver linings happening. Hubby is starting to feel better slowly, which is very good indeed. Mentally I’ve turned a corner and have been feeling a lot more myself and I can see an end to the long depression tunnel I’ve been in for months, overall.
I’m trying to fill my days with something that makes me smile – music, friends, coffee, walks, hugs, the beach. They don’t have to be big things, just nice and happy things.
There’s a little light shining, and it’s getting a bit brighter each day…
