Getting out of bed

Lately I have really been struggling.

I don’t know why.

The house is a mess.

I have kids to take care of.

I had diabetes prescriptions to pick up.

So I went.

It helped.

I came home.

It felt a little better.

Then these feelings came back.

I’m taking a more natural medication.

I took all my vitamins.

It’s so frustrating when you just want the dark cloud to go away.

You know what helps but just can’t.

Exercising, go outside.

I did my grateful journal.

It’s just one of those days. Maybe couple of those days. I also blame it on those hormones. Lots of peaks and valleys I need to endure.

Thank you for letting me get these feelings out.
