I haven't wrote in a long time so for those that know me I just thought I would give a update. I've been doing much better over this last month, my anxiety is pretty much gone it feels good to be normal and not stressed. I like being this calm person who just lives in the moment. I'm still taking celexa at 20mgs, I never went back to my counselor after only one visit but it's ok. I think that I have realized a lot about myself. I start college in August qualified for a grant and will plan on going full time for 2yrs to get my associates degree. I'm not sure still at this point what to major in but I will just focus on getting my basics out of the way first, maybe I'll have it figured out in the meantime. My son will obviously go to care more then 2 days a week while I'm in school, I'm so excited for both of us. I will be living a life outside of being a mom and he will have more consistency with being in care, which he needs. It's weird but I have come to a peace with this plan to go back to school because it's something I feel that I'm supposed to do. Everything inside of me tells me I'm doing the right thing for myself and my son. And it all works out too because in 2yrs he will be going to school and it will allow me to work in my field after I graduate. I'll also be able to say that I established myself by the time I'm 30 lol.
My SO and I are getting married in September, we have been planning the day and I already got my dress. We are just going to Vegas so nothing extravagent but I've been dreaming about walking down the isle. We will be there for 4 nights and I'm sure it will be very special for both of us. So something else I've been looking forward to. I don't really get depressed anymore, sure I get sad but I feel like a different person now and I'm just waiting to start my life!! Thank you all for being here when I needed you, even though I know I'm not a regular I do wonder how some of you are. Take care and I'll be around.
I also wanted to add have a great 4th of July tomorrow and for everyone reading you WILL find your way. I know in the times of deep emptyness it may not feel like it but we have to keep pushing forward no matter how long it takes. We all have a path to follow in life and one day you will find peace in yours. It took me 3yrs but I vowed to myself that this year would be different. I wish you all comfort in your journey.

Dear Hope,

Wow, I am so happy for you.  You have done it and you should be very proud of the hard work you have put into healing.  Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.  I have attended a wedding in Vegas and it was wonderful.  The chapel was very tasteful and we all had a grand time.

Also going to school is perfect for you.  I am really excited to read your story and know you feel good about where you are now. 

Remember we are always here for you and never stop staying in the moment.  It will serve you well.

Gentle Hugs to You,

Wow, Hope!

I am so happy for you! That is so encouraging to hear how you went from being so miserable just months ago to now having your life nearly turn 180 degrees the other direction. Congrats on your upcoming marriage! I am sure your wedding will be beautiful. I've always thought the simplest weddings were the best. :)

It made my day to read your post.  Really!!  My Celexa is just starting to kick in after a slight increase and I feel very good again.  I am so proud of you and always trust your gut.  If it feels right inside, than it is.  No one is ever too old to go back to school and it sounds like you are on the right track.  Funny how things can seem so hopeless and negative one day and then something good happens and everything starts falling into place.  Congrats on your upcoming wedding, you have alot going on girl.  Now you know there may be glitches along the way but it sounds like you are in a good place to over come anything that gets in your way.
So glad you are feeling better, please radiate that joy through this post as often as you can because we all need that positive vibe! turn
