Getting off Medication + Where Have I Been?

image000000Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is having a good weekend. They always go so darn fast. I want to apologize for being absent for about a month and a half. I have lots to share with you. First things first lets start with some great news.

About 2 weeks ago I decided that I wanted to get off my antidepressants. So far it has been great. I am finally at a place where I feel like I have more control over my emotions. So far I have noticed that I have tons more energy, those damn antidepressants made me extremely tired. I took them for about a year and I truly do think they helped me at the time. But like I said I have been feeling more positive so I decided, why not just give it a try and stop taking them. I haven’t noticed anything about my mood. If anything I am quite happier, probably because I have more energy. It has been one hell of a ride and I have worked my ass off overcoming depression, not to mention spending thousands of dollars on therapy. But it was worth it, I have said this before and I will say it again, if I hadn’t got help when I did, I would absolutely be laying in the ground right now.

Recently I have been watching tons of documentaries on plant based diets (vegan). It was always something I found interesting. After watching several, I decided I wanted to give it a try. Not for health reasons, but because I freaking love animals so much, and I also love our planet. I have only been doing it for three days so once I do it for longer I will give you guys an update. It is hard, especially because I have been eating animal products my entire life. I also live in Nebraska and we like our beef here. Its hard because I feel like people are a little snotty about it and think vegans feel like they are better than everyone else. I am not preaching veganism to anyone, eat what you like and what makes you happy. I am not here to judge! I just happen to adore animals and I couldn’t stand watching them get tortured in those films. I just want to share my life with you guys!

Okay so where in the hell have I been? BUSY. As I have been getting better with my mental health, my husband is currently struggling. It is like we switched places. Watching him go through it is harder than ACTUALLY going through it. The good thing about this is that we can totally relate to one another. He knows how I felt and vice versa. So I have really been just trying to be there for him, driving him to his therapy appointments and spending as much time as I can with him. But of course on top of that you still have to work. So basically I have just been working and focusing on my husband. Blog posts can wait, family is everything.

I hope you guys have a great rest of your Sunday, thank you so much for reading!
