I’m taking a break but I will be back :)

Hello Friends,

I just wanted to let you all know I am going on a short hiatus, how short, I don’t know. The last few months my “Real Life” has been an emotional roller coaster with my son. In November I was informed that he has a bit of a mood disorder similar to Bi-Polar Disorder, this goes along with his anxiety and autism. The last few months his behavior has been the worst because if the mood, he has gone through manic episodes that last hours to feelings of no longer wanting to be here and at one point wanted to throw himself out a window. He also had a serious episode at school and had to be release into my custody and needed to be cleared by a hospital to make sure he was not a harm to himself (he was cleared). That was a lot for us as a family to take and it hit us pretty hard but I have pushed through keeping the faith and holding onto hope that we will find a way to help him. We have started him on a new medicine and I am hoping this is the start of a new chapter in our lives with a son who feel better about himself and more comfortable in his skin, plus one that doesn’t want to leave this earth any time soon.


Today I realized as I let things sink in I have became overwhelmed and sort of just fell apart which is why I think I might be in a blogger slump. So I am going to take the next couple of days or a week and just pull myself together again, get those emotions out and move on, also drink lots of wine πŸ™‚ I am not one to sit and watch the world pass me by but I think this has left me with a bit of depression and I need to get a handle on it before it gets out of control.

So please don’t miss me to much I will be back but the blog this week will be quiet (I have two posts scheduled). The one thing that keeps me grounded is my love for books and this blog, it’s my own personal therapy. I would never want to stop it and I don’t want to lose any of my friends/followers, I’m just tired and need a break.

Bloggiesta starts on Monday the 23rd I am hoping to be back by then because I have a lot I want to do but I might not be back 100% since Bloggiesta has a lot to do with behind the blog that is probably where you will find me. I am hoping this will be a short break but I just need time….BUT I WILL BE BACK!!

  1. Sorry to see things are going so bad for you… how heartbreaking o hear your son is doing so badly he might harm himself. Simply heartbreaking </3 Of course I would never stop following you simply because you need a break, we all do at some point! I just had one at the end of last year because my life was not only exhausting but plain stressful. Take a break, get some relaxation and hopefully you will come back better than ever!
