Roller Coaster Ride

Ugh!! I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long. I fell into a deep depression and started having severe anxiety along with panic attacks. My doctor put me on Paxil and Xanax. The first week after starting the Paxil I was so sick. I could barely get off the couch! It was terrible. I lost weight from not being able to eat, which I’m not going to complain about. 😉 However, I did miss out on the awesome burrito supper my dear husband made while I was sick. (Praying he will make it again soon!)

I am feeling much better now. I have learned relaxation techniques which really help with my anxiety. I do still get panicky, but not as bad as before. I thank God for answering those little prayers.

School has started back already. My three kids are still getting adjusted but they are doing great. My daughter is a cheerleader this year and she is doing an amazing job. And she loves it!! Which is wonderful!

On a sadder note – my great uncle passed away last Thursday. He was buried this weekend. It was so very sad because I grew up with him. He reminded me so much of my granddaddy, who passed away when I was 13 years old. My granddaddy was my best friend in the whole world. There was nobody like him, and there never will be. My great uncle’s passing brought back memories of my granddaddy and to me it was as if he died all over again.

Happier note – I have joined an online women’s Bible study called “What Happens When Women Say Yes to God.” I absolutely love it! It is bringing me closer in my relationship with the Lord. I have learned so much already! Including verse mapping, which I had never heard of before this study. We have so much fun. There are prayer calls as well as Real Life Connection Calls. Lisa TerKeurst and Mandisa have been speakers on the calls!! We also have Twitter parties and Facebook parties and lots of prizes are given out!

I hope you have a very blessed day!! God bless!
