Breakdown! Go Ahead and Give it to Me…

Medication, that is. Updating on the struggles of my communications course, it ended up just being too much of a trigger for me at this point and as a result I dropped it. I was really trying to push  myself, but the culture activity sort of sent me off on a whirlwind of emotional strife. I had a bit of a breakdown, spent nearly two weeks straight at peak anxiety levels, couldn’t talk myself into even going back to the class at all.

After a Panic Attack, Life Goes On!

Wow! It’s been an interesting couple of weeks. Between running around like a mad hatter gathering school supplies and shopping for the kids’ school clothes, that little visit from Hurricane Irene that left us without power for the better part of a week, and stressing over any-and-everything else that was coming up, I had little opportunity to hop on and update this lovely little blog of mine. This school year my kids are back at a regular brick and mortar public school. Previously, they were cyber-schooling. Two days down and so far so good, though I’m still rather irked by
