I put in for some time off today. I’m hoping I can take some time off in the first part of may. With any luck I’ll have about a week off.
I decided this because the anniversary of my mom’s death is coming up quick and the pain is still pretty fresh. I know I’m not going to be a great person to be around at that point so I thought I should take some time off and collect myself before I come back to work.
Truth is I’ve been really struggling lately. I’ve had depression and anxiety disorders for many years and I’ve been on antidepressant medications for a while. Since the passing of my mom, they’ve gotten worse. It’s harder and harder to fine things that I enjoy doing even though they have been things I’ve enjoyed for years.
However, with that being said, my knitting and crocheting, and even this blog have become more of an outlet for everything I’ve been feeling. It’s a nice distraction from the confusion and loneliness.
Anyways, that’s enough rambling for today. Happy knitting!
