Ugh, I just accidentally deleted the post I had written about this.  :(

Anyway, just wanted to share that I've been suffering from some pretty bad insomnia lately and that's why it's been so quiet around here.  I had started a post that detailed what I was going through in more depth, but honestly, I just don't have the energy or desire to process through all that right now.  It's been rough and exhausting and not something I want to relive (and strangely, way worse than newborn-baby type sleep deprivation).  I went to the doctor on Tuesday and he gave me a few sleeping pills, so at least I've had a few better nights now.  I'm hoping my body will soon "reset" itself and get back to normal (I guess we'll see when I try sleeping without the aid of a pill).  The doctor also recommended that I see a therapist or counselor to help me with managing my stress/anxiety.  I've seen a therapist in the past (about 6 years ago from depression/anxiety) and it really helped me then, but honestly I'm not looking forward to going.  But I guess sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.  I know it will be worth it in the end.

If you feel inclined to pray, would you please send up a prayer or two on my behalf?  Thanks.

When it comes to raising kids and challenges with that, my advice is not because "been there, done that" but when it comes to insomnia, anxiety or depression, I have personal experience and understand your frustration.

My doctor has put me back on a very mind anti-anxiety medication. It has made a world of difference once again and I have come to the realization that this just may be the way I'm going to have to live.

Seeing a counselor or therapist is a good recommendation - I highly encourage that as well. Sometimes we just need someone to help us see through the stuff in our lives.

I will send up more than justa prayer or two. Whenever I think of you or your kids, I will pray for you specifically.
