If I were to share secrets, then it would no longer be a secret.
I have recently touched upon this a little; because I have been struggling somewhat with living with anxiety. My husband is amazing as keeping me afloat, but I feel incredibly guilty for leaning on him so much. I am not a fan of Doctors so I don’t go and get medication; so I have attempted to treat myself in a more natural way. When I was pregnant with our youngest, my bodily vitamins and minerals were stripped back to the bare minimum, I am still trying to restore back to what I was.
I have been trying to boost my serotonin by drinking Pineapple, there are other foods with it in, but I like pineapple and it is readily available. It really does boost me – I just have to remember to be regular with it.
I have really struggled with anxiety and depression this year; I feel almost silly for suffering with it; being one of the luckiest women alive to have such a loving family, I feel like I should be happy all the time – I am; but just sometimes I really struggle to cope mentally and at times feel like I am drowning; I have lost focus and friends over the years and it makes me feel lonely, it brings me down; I really hate being so sensitive to things, especially things which are out of my control. But it often does leave me questioning. Am I a nice person? Trust doesn’t come easy.
I feel really embarrassed feeling the way I do, sometimes I really can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I do need to get better. I’m glad to have my husband, children and the few friends to make me smile when everything seems to turn to shit.
Earlier this year I had a very faint positive pregnancy test, being sterilised it was a huge shock; I had missed a whole period and some. Of course it didn’t amount to anything. It was of a chemical kind, where it seems my body released HCG but nothing else. Although it is something we definitely didn’t want, there was a day or so where I felt that pang of excitement (more fear), a natural feeling I guess. They’re not sure why or what even happened. I’m not even sure on what to feel about it all., it isn’t something I have wanted to talk about either. I never expected to be taking another test, I never expected to see a cross.
I have a real fear about being pregnant again. Pregnancy has never treated me very well. I never had that glow, that fuzzy feeling. I wish I did.
Apologies for such a crappy post!! I don’t have many secrets; I am a life blogger after all.
Here is a more relaxing post.
