He had a major meltdown this afternoon and I’m completely drained

It’s been a frustrating week. I’ve been dealing with anxious kids, Gavin challenges, and now equipment issues with my podcast. I’ve been working on it today and couldn’t get things working until almost midnight. Unfortunately, Friday’s episode is going to be late as a result. I’m hoping to get it finished by shed up and …

#Depression can be different for everyone but this is how it impacts me

I wanted to point something out about depression, at least as it applies to me. When I find myself in a darker place, I don’t think I’ve ever had the urge to hurt myself, at least not that I can remember. When I’m struggling like I am, the struggle is not related to not wanting …

I was already exhausted and now I’m even more so. I crashed for a couple hours before dinner because I just …

We had a really bad night

It’s 3am and I’m still awake because the boys are struggling after a brief visit with their mom. Elliott managed to fall asleep, but Emmett had a nightmare, and refuses to go back to bed for fear it’s going to happen again. Then of course, there’s Gavin. Poor Gavin had a particularly bad night. He …

The gentle giant

It’s been another long day for me but I’m doing okay. I didn’t accomplish anything today but I’m not going to beat myself up. I took a long nap today, which was desperately needed, so there’s that I suppose. A bit of selfcare. Yesterday, the boys and I drove to Toledo Ohio to pick up …

So much happened this week and I don’t know where to start

It’s been such a really good week. My stress level is relatively manageable, either that or I’m coping better. Either way, it’s a win. So much has happened over the last seven days, I’m not even sure where to begin. I guess I’ll just start somewhere. There’s been a few new beginning this week. Elliott …
