A small personal note.

I didn't know this, but apparently my blog is good therapy.  My therapist wants the website, but told me I don't have to give it to him.  I haven't decided yet.

I recently started seeing a therapist for depression because I am not happy anymore.  I haven't been for a couple years, but I finally got pushed to go to therapy because my doctor's office does a mental well being survey on random patients.  Apparently I tested very high for depression.  At first I was embarrassed, but now that I've been going for a couple weeks I'm kind of grateful that I was sent for a consultation.

My husband is very, very supportive which is nice.  I'm hoping that this helps me.  I'm going to be on antidepressants and that scares me a bit because it's not something I've ever really thought about taking.  I've read the side effects.  I've seen the difference in my own family members though, so I'm hoping I have as good a reaction as they have.

Off of that, I just wanted to get that out for some reason.

My son is no longer getting nap time which has worked wonders for his attitude.  Now he gets a three hour quiet time where we read together or for whatever reason, he likes to watch me stitch.  He even said to me today, "I want to take a nap," and went to bed for an hour.  I'm so happy he's happy with this new arrangement.  I know three is probably too old to force him to nap, but I wasn't ready to give up on him being my baby.

I have no WIP today, but I will DEFINITELY have one tomorrow!  The outermost part of the umbrella is almost done.  It will probably be done tonight.

Day 7 - Your favorite Link
Twilight Princess

When I first saw the artwork for this game, I thought it was so beautiful.  The day I found out about its existence, I preordered it.  I didn't even own a Wii.  I had the game three months before I ever owned a Wii system just so I could have it.  I knew nothing about the game other than what the characters looked like.


  1. Depression is scary because it's so sneaky. There's one particular time of the year that I feel like complete crap, and last year was the worst. I didn't even realize how depressed I was until a random moment of clarity when I realized that I honestly wanted to leave my home and my family and just go SOMEWHERE. I was absolutely horrified. Only my husband thought my behavior had been strange and even he didn't know how bad it was. Kudos to you for being okay with the treatment. There is no way I could ever live with that feeling on a regular basis.
    I have little patience for video games. I have played quite a few, but when the going gets tough I just turn that ist off, lol. Growing up, I'd watch my best friend or cousin play games because while I was horrible at playing them, I still enjoyed them. I wished I had been able to watch someone play Twilight Princess or Majora's Mask. I finished Ocarina and started on Windwaker, but that was the extent of my Zelda playing. Sad face.

    1. It is weird because I had never really thought about it until my first therapy session. I've always been the kind of person who's embarrassed to ask for help, so this was very hard actually going through with the first and now second session that I've been to. Funny how you learn about yourself when you're being completely candid with a doctor.

      As for video games, I've been playing since before I could talk, Zelda just happened to be my favorite lol. My mom has always made sure that we had the most up to date video game systems ever since I can remember.
