Family, Hunker Down, mental health

Staying motivated…

Who am I kidding?  I was only motivated by fear and adrenaline in the first place!  But now my allergies have hit, and I forgot my antidepressant yesterday and I’m even *more* scared, so now all I really want to do is SLEEP.  I want to curl up under my covers, do nothing but eat all the food I have set aside for the upcoming month, and hide.  From the world.  From obligations.  From news.  From people.  Including my family!

So I somehow managed to drag myself up and out of bed and into a shower, and that helped.  I put real clothes on.  Didn’t do my hair beyond a ponytail, or makeup, but did brew myself a BIG cup of coffee.  And nuked some oatmeal for breakfast, and set the kids to start their school day with 20 minutes silent reading (which frequently stretches to 30 and has been a WONDERFUL way to ease into our day).

So…I don’t know.  I guess the moral to my story is–take your meds, drink your coffee, start your day with a shower–and if you have kids, assign some silent reading to start the day. ;). The first step is the hardest.  Hopefully the rest of the day will be easier. <3
