Just a little update...

I'm doing a little better. I've been forcing myself to do things and push through the depression. It is exhausting and I've been getting worn out completely by 2 PM (actually sooner than that, but I'm pushing through it). But I'm trying. It's hard. I went to my friend's house yesterday so the kids could see her kids and play. I had a pretty good time, but it was exhausting.
I'm waking up every night around 2 or 3 AM and not being able to go to sleep again for a while. By 5 AM I'm up and so tired, but I can't go back to sleep. By 9 AM I'm ready to go back to bed, but can't, too many things to do. I'm waking up around midnight too. Last night it was due to coughing, I can't seem to get rid of this cough. Overall I'm not getting much sleep again and that is not good.
I haven't been working out and I need to, but I'm so exhausted and depressed, I just don't have the energy to do so. Going through the motions is about all I can handle right now.
We finally made it to over one tenth of the way toward getting a service dog!! Still have a ways to go, but I'm so thankful to those that have donated so far. My hope is to get the dog started on training this year so that I can have her next year. I wish it could be sooner, but that is not possible.
Off to the grocery store today, must buy enough veggies to make it for the rest of the week. I'm in love with Brussel sprouts right now. Cut them up and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper, then bake at 400 for 23 minutes. Perfect and yummy! I'm told doing the same thing to cabbage makes it super yummy too. Will have to find out.
Hope your day goes wonderfully! Thanks for stopping by!
