Day 7....Back To Work Day!

Oh my Lovies! Today was a special day!! Today was my first day back to work after being off work for almost 11 months.  I am a Divisional Sales Manager at Staples here in Ottawa and have been doing this job for almost 14 years. A year ago my psychiatrist and I decided it was time to take a break from the stress of working. It's a long story of which I've written a few posts about. We'll just quickly say that the last few years have been filled with a lot of funerals, mental fatigue and madness. I needed time off and I took it. But it's been almost a year since my Dad passed away and it was time to head back to work!!  I'm on modified work right now, meaning I only work two half days this week to gradually get back into the swing of things. It was so nice to get back to work. One of my associates even gave me a hug!  But boy oh boy, is it hard to work on your feet all day! UGH!! I forgot how hard it was. I suffer from (among a billion other things) plantar fasciatis in my feet which is quite painful. Please don't ask why I work at a job that requires me to be on my feet all day long when I have this issue with my feet cuz I don't have an answer for ya! I think one has caused the other and I just haven't gotten another job yet!  Ack! Anyway, I wear orthopedics in my shoes but they didn't help one bit today. LOL. Oh the pain, the agony!!!  And I'm such a big baby!! I whine A LOT!  When I got home, after stopping for some yummy Lebanese from Guava (yummy treat for a good day!), I whined and bitched to my mother in law for half an hour. "I had a good day but I HURT SO MUCH!". Yup, that was about the gist of the conversation.  Then I went to bed to take a 'small nap' and slept for two and a half hours!! Yes, you can say I was tired after only 4 hours of work!!! Ha!!! 

ANYWHO!  I'm hanging out now with my father in law, watching the hockey game, hoping the Canucks will kick some ass tonight.  I thought I'd pop in here quickly and give you DAY 7 of our 30 Day challenge! I'd love to include some pics with tonight's post, but Blogger is annoying me yet again. I'm not bitter though!!

Day 01 — A recent picture and 15 facts about you
Day 02 — Favourite movies

Day 03 — Favourite TV shows
Day 04 — Favourite books
Day 05 — Favourite quotes
Day 06 — Favourite songs
Day 07 — The meaning behind your blog name

I love to write. I have been using a journal since I was 16 years old. Sometimes I write more than others.  Every now and then someone will make a comment about me writing a book because I like to write so much. Personally, I don't think I'm that good a writer to complete a whole book.  BUT, if I did write a book, I would call it, "Only Read This If Your (a little) Crazy" and it would be about my journey with Depression and Anxiety.  Being a mother is hard. Suffering with PPD after having your babies makes being a Mommy even harder. Suffering with depression while being married makes married life a little more interesting. Working through panic/anxiety is sometimes impossible and can lead to some real issues. But I'm surviving!! Every day is an interesting challenge and it takes some effort. But I do it every day. Some days I'm a better worker, mother and wife than I am other days, that's for sure. But being this crazy is part of my life. LOL. And I started this blog because I wanted to share with everyone that depression is what I have but not who I am.  I like to take a light hearted approach to my depression sometimes.  Sometimes I talk a whole lot of crazy!  Sometimes its all I talk about!  But it's a part of my life and I've had to learn to accept it and live with it. 

Did that make any sense? Dang, I'm tired!! Hahah. See, told I like to whine a lot. I think I might be going to bed real soon despite the almost three hour nap today!!

Ugh, I wish this post was funnier. Do you ever wish your posts were funnier, or more interesting? That's how I feel today. I'd add a cute little pic but you know, blogger is a jerk!
