✓Oh, and self care while heading into the most anxious and depressing time of my year.

I’m hoping to miss the three months of horror this year.

I would like to say that piling up my schedule will ward it off, but I have tried that before. It won’t.

Having a new love in my life won’t ward it off either.

I can ease the symptoms quite a bit with medication, but I would have had to have started it two months ago.

(Enter your favorite self cursing dialogue here, while I berate myself for the next half hour)

It’s been on my to-do list for several months. I just felt like other things were more important.

Logically, I know that, if I don’t take care of me, no one will take care of me. I know that I am no good to anyone, over the long term, if I don’t take care of myself and my needs first.

However

When I’m smack dab in the middle of the day, and I’m faced with a decision between my needs and someone’s wants, I choose their wants every time.

I’m actually quite proud of myself. For the last couple of months, I have been doing very well at working on making sure I voice my needs and wants. For the most part, they have been ignored, but I voiced them.

Until next time…
