Day: 8 A Mom is Sentence Too

8 days down, hundreds to go! Spoke with him today, he finally moved to his new room with the black guys. Apparently in that prison camp you have to stick with your own 🙄Anyway, he sounded a little more upbeat today! He finds out tomorrow when his release date will be, I hope it’s sooner rather than later. I faced time my sweet grand baby today, who is looking more like him everyday. My sons girlfriend said, the baby and his sister have been acting kind of funny. The little girl is acting out, using the restroom in corners and peeing on her toys. I think she was so use to having a male figure around and is trying to express her little feelings. I know she misses him just like we do. My son is a really good dude who made a really bad decision, but you live and you learn. So I’m off to bed, feeling pretty good tonight about him. I really believe God has his arms around him! Also did I mention I’ve been sober for 8 whole days😃🙌🏾! Chat soon…..

Building Confidence While In a Depressive State!

Building confidence can be pretty hard on its on, but try having a depressed mind all the time. Today as I was preparing the things I need to roll out my BIG news on Friday, I had to step back and take a look around. Is this me? Am I singing? Yes, it’s me! The half new me, for once today I had the confidence to look at myself and my projects and say, “damn girl, this shit cute”. LOL I look in the mirror and told myself that, “I am good enough”, “I will get my life back on track”! Wow and I actually believe it too. I spent so many months in a dark hole, the only thing I could see it’s darkness. Nowww…I can see some light at the end of that hole. I feel like I really could see things improving, without my other part of the brain taking over. So here’s to the old me who didn’t think I would ever see the day, the day that some confidence would come creeping back into my soul. Here’s to the things I write on my vision board to help me slowly get back to normal. Here’s to a really fabulous woman who got knocked down, but got up out that bed and sought the help I needed to put me back on the right track! Although my journey isn’t over and please believe I’m so not cured, I like to think of it like a really really long cold. I just keep taking the meds until it’s all gone, lol! So I will get back to my secret projects…chat soon loves!!!

What a great article, depression effects everyone differently! No, just because I’m on a step of recovery doesn’t mean I’m not sick anymore! We all have different ways of healing and I plan on doing it my way! Lately it’s been therapeutic to read that I’m not alone in this!!
