everything changes

so my life looks nothing like it did almost two and a half years ago when my baby son was born and i suffered from severe postpartum anxiety.  crazy times.  who knew?! I can honestly say i am Happy.  Wow.  i have been unable to say that for a long time.

as to postpartum anxiety...gone.  ladies it can be done.  i am living proof...emphasis on the living.

regular' ol depression and anxiety...gone.

what's my secret? having a person come into your life who shows you that you are a good person. that you are lovable. that you are important and matter. this person could go away today, and i would have fond memories and be extremely thankful to this person, knowing they came into my life for a short period of time for a reason. to save me from myself.

now the rest is up to me....

Have You Been a Victim of Mesothelioma?

Many people have been victims of mesothelioma as a result of being near or working around asbestos-contaminated buildings. Unbeknownst to the victim, they were being poisoned by this extremely toxic material that is now illegal to be used in any building construction whatsoever.

Mesothelioma is a lung-related disease from inhaling the toxic chemicals released whenever asbestos has been disturbed. Asbestos started being used in the late 19th century. It was unknown for many years that asbestos was toxic. If you are a victim of asbestos poisoning then you will want to contact a mesothelioma lawyer. Only an expert in asbestos-related cases can provide you with the best representation to help you get compensation you need for the resulting medical bills.

There are many mesothelioma lawyers who have acquired the necessary knowledge to represent your rights in being a victim of this silent killer.
Unfortunately, the prognosis for this malignant cancer is extremely poor. The other unfortunate issue is that symptoms usually don’t appear until ten or 20 years after the exposure to asbestos.

If you or a family member has been a victim of mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure it is of utmost importance to contact a mesothelioma law firm. They specialize in only asbestos-related mesothelioma cases and can assist you in getting the compensation you justly deserve.

suicide ideation

sucks. It's the preoccupation with death and thoughts of suicide. Not necessarily something you would actually act upon, but the preoccuaption is incredibly scary.

Particularly if you drink. I hate to admit this out loud but I actually thought of how I was going to do it. I had too many glasses of wine, too much pain and sadness, and it seemed the easy way out and the only way out.

When I woke in the morning and that first realization that I had given such serious thought to this...scared the living hell out of me.

You see I have 2 young kids.

Why does suicide ideation occur? Not sure but here's my theory: I've had my fair share of depression, anxiety, postpartum anxiety so the death thoughts aren't anything new. I think your body can only take so much overwhelming stress and anxiety that your ability to handle ongoing stress becomes limited.

In other words, your threshold is lowered. So the next time you get a huge blow in your life, you don't have the same capacity you did before to deal with it.

Thus anxiety and depression occur.

And suicide ideation.
