I’ve had my Doctors appointment after that horrible week, looks like the injection could well have been the cause for my increasing and storm clouded moods. Looks like I wont be having it again, which I am more than fine with, I didn’t like the person I became in the last month and I don’t want that to happen again thats for sure. Disappointing though because my severe migraines were actually helped with the injection, but I guess this is the price I will have to pay. I have a ‘next’ option which is a bit more invasive but should work almost the same, minus the bitchy moods!
My week after I admitted I had turned into some crazed cow, became much better. I was thinking much more positively and taking each day as it came. Princess and I had fun together and I yelled at her a lot less, my tolerance level had previously been at an all time low, but things are back on track. Ragamuffin became an angel for his Mumma, a text book baby if you will, finally sleeping for hours at a time during the day meant that I got such much needed ‘me’ time, I even said to hell with the house work a few times. I know things with him will probably change again next week, that’s the thing with babies, so I will enjoy it while it lasts and keep rolling with the punches when they come.
I definitely think though, my positive mindset helped me a lot during the week. Each morning I would wake with a fresh and renewed outlook, I have been more relaxed because of it and I am sure the kids have sensed that too. Having ‘me’ time has also helped, doing things that I love, like writing here, reading my favorite blogs, venturing outside to take photographs, crocheting, meditating, I even bought and read a magazine. All of it helped, it all did!
Sure there were still some crappy moments thrown in there, but all in all, I was back to me and enjoyed my time with the kids.
How was your week?
