Update – December 2018

Well folks, I’m back! It’s almost the end of the year and I’ve got to say, I’m glad to see this year be over. Between being hospitalized and suicidal, to having to make some big life choices, I can honestly say that I’m ready for 2019 and all it has to offer. It’s a new beginning for me.

So, the latest update is that I am a few months stable. Yes, plural! I feel so lucky to finally feel back to my old usual self. It’s been a huge relief to feel “normal” and be getting back on my feet. Quitting my job in September is one of the best decisions I made for myself. I was skeptical at first on how things would go when I was no longer working but I have to say, it’s really been great. Taking the time to focus on myself and my needs is exactly what I needed. Will I be able to ever go back to work? I’m honestly not sure. At this point I’m just happy to be feeling better.

I’ve been in the Calgary area visiting my friends and family over the holidays and while I’m glad to see everyone, it’s been pretty draining. I’m constantly tired and fighting exhaustion, no matter how much sleep I get. Plus I’m pretty sure I’ve gained like 10 lbs since being here. The holidays will do that to a person I suppose. As much as I have loved catching up with everyone, I’m ready to go home. But, I still have 5 more days to go. Sigh. I’ll be home soon enough though with my kitties.

My goal in January is to read 5 books! I’ve been seriously slacking on the reading front and I need to get back into my habits so I have more material to review for you all. My next review will be on the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. I have 200 pages left to go on the last book, but I’m very confident in my recommendation for you guys. The other book I’m reading right now has been hard to get into – it’s called Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined. It’s a slow burner for sure but it seems to be starting to pick up. I wanted to read it because it’s about young adults having issues with drugs or mental health (some of my favorite topics as we all know). I’ll keep you posted on how it is.

Anyways, that’s all for now! Thanks for reading and I promise to be better about blogging in the new year.  I hope you all had a great Christmas and have a happy new year!
