Yes, I’ve been writing. Just not here. Please forgive me. The thing is, The Lorix Chronicles began from my need to get a lot of crud out of my head. I hoped it would help at least one other person who was dealing with postpartum depression or just the regular trials of motherhood. It’s helped me, and, I assume from the positive feedback I’ve received, that’s it’s helped others (and is still helping others) as well.
Which is why I feel embarrassed that I haven’t posted for about six months or so. Oops.
Anyway, this is not an “important” post, but I did want to update the few of you who read The Lorix Chronicles. I’m doing well. My kids are great, I enjoy being a mom now, and I feel about as “normal” as I ever have – maybe even more so. I told my aunt this morning that I really love my medication. I may wean off of it at some point, but a conversation with my psychiatrist helped me see that the goal is not to wean off medication – the goal is to feel normal. I’m there now, and I’m able to enjoy parts of my life that I haven’t in a long time. That makes me happy.
So, that’s my update. Now, for your viewing pleasure, a few random photos from my lovely daughter, Beatrix.
So that’s that. I’ll try to write some more soon. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I didn’t know if I could ever say this (and actually mean it), but I am so thankful to be a mom to my two awesome children.
