Day 14: A picture of you last year – how have you changed?
~Well, I can say that last year I was about 10lbs thinner than I am now… which isn’t much, yet on my small frame it sure seems like a-lot. 🙂 These meds put a whopping 25 extra pounds on me and I have yet to lose 10. Not a biggie, it will get done.
~ A year ago I was highly suicidal.
~ A year ago, my children were the sole reason for me not committing suicide.
~ A year ago I had addiction problems.
~ A year ago I was rapid cycling and would be manic for weeks/months on end…then depressed all in the same day… with pretty much zero sleep.
~ I cried every single day, sometimes all day.
~ I stayed out all night and got home when the son came up.
~ A year ago, I couldn’t envision “tomorrow”.
~ A year ago, I was in the throes of a year and a half mental breakdown.
~ A year ago, I did not value myself.
~ A years ago this month, I moved to family for support and structure to get mentally healthy.
With the exception of crying frequently, I am none of the previous things I mentioned… my children still keep me going though. 😉
♥ With every day comes the gift of change.♥
