"okay, now I'm really worried..."

Oh gosh, guys! You all are so worried when I don't blog!

On top of being busy (overwhelmed, really!) I'm really struggling with my hormones being all out of whack. It's sort of a case of an old lady swallowing a fly...and then swallowing a spider to catch that fly...and so on and so on. I'm on a medicine that has made my hormones all crazy. So the doctor put me on medicine for my hormones. And now I think I need something for my frazzled nerves. It's a crazy mess...and the timing couldn't possibly be any worse.

I'm hanging in there...taking one day at a time, one tantrum at a time. I don't feel even remotely like myself. It's not a good scene.

I should be able to spill the news about the good news soon...sorry to keep you hanging.

So good to hear from you! I'm sorry you have been going on an emotional rollercoaster. I suffered from postpartum depression after Baby was born last May. It was really awful. I felt like an absolute crazy person. My doctor helped me to get my hormones under control after about six months and I started to feel like I could think straight again! I know how hard it can be to be in that state and I hope things get better for you soon. I'm thinking about you!!!!

PS Looking forward to hearing about your news!!!

Hope that the medication works out. I wish I could invite your brood over for a playdate to give you quiet time, but New England isn't next door. So, here's lots of warm hugs and wishes for things to get better soon!

Hang in there, Amy! No one is more capable than you are, I'm sure of it! You will be in my prayers. Can't wait for you to spill the beans!

Talk to your caseworker about respit! You need it. Tell the children that it is a play date because they are so wonderful. Just ask for day respite. The state gives that to us fostcare parents for this very reason. You are not super human :}
Sweet thoughts of you,
Shelley

Dear Amy, God bless you! You have such a big heart and care sooo much. I will pray that you will be able to find peace amongst the craziness. Truly God is looking after all of you and has a hold on what you are going thru even if it does not feel like it at this moment. It is amazing what we women can accomplish even when our body is not in sink with us....Hugs Lisa

Amy, we miss you because we love you! Four years ago, at age 46, I went through menopause and thought I was in clinical depression. Believe me, there is a reason for drugs! (and doctors!) Once they got me straightened out, I was back to my old self. YAY! You will get there, too. You are very brave, my love. Just take a deep breath, eat right, drink your water, get lots of sleep. I wonder if I could guess your news? Can't wait for the announcement. hugs, Cheryl in IN

I don't remember much about the first year that I adopted my two toddlers. It was so much more stressful and demanding than a newborn (I'd had two, so I know). I was looney tired, stressed, and starting to think I had made the worst mistake, most undoable mistake of my life. The good news is, we all got acclimated to each other, then we bonded with each other, then we fell in love with each other. Take good care of yourself, and just as you are doing, one day, one tantrum at a time. You will get a little of your "old self" back, and you will come to love being your "new self."

Oh Miss Amy! Please hang in there! I've been thru the wacky hormones after my partial hysterectomy 2 years ago and still adjusting to adopting Vivian. I didnt feel like myself and was stress and overwhelmed as well. I PROMISE you give it time and let your body get use to the changes. Also learn to count to 10. ;) Thoughts are with you! XO,Jenn
