Starting Over

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Alot has change since my last blog about a year ago. I quit my job last December, moved into my new home in January, started therapy & was diagnosed with Bipolar II in January, stopped homeschooling my three kids last month & just enrolled myself in college a week ago for the fall semester. So you might ask by the title of this blog why I'm 'starting over'. Well after 6 months on medication that wreak havoc on my body & caused me to gain 15lbs, I stopped taking all of them almost a week ago & decided to go the natural approach to my treatment. It was a hard decision to make but after months of working out & trying to eat healthy, I still continued to gain & felt that that side affect along with a few others weren't worth it. I hope I can get back to what I used to be or maybe even better so stay tuned.

    I hope you do very well without the medication. I enjoyed going back to college in my early 40's and getting my Master's Degree. I hope you enjoy your college experience!!!! emoticon
