So, yesterday was my birthday...For the very first time that I can remember in a long time, I was extremely sad. I do have a lot going on in my life right now, but I was overly sad yesterday. Everything made me cry. Everything. TV, people wishing me happy birthday, just everything. Maybe it's the baby hormones...I don't know...though, again, this is my 3rd September baby, so I've been pregnant twice before on my birthday. I don't think that was it. My family is pretty big on birthdays...we ALWAYS go to the birthday person's house with a cake and just good conversation. It doesn't matter what day of the week, we just do it. I called everyone and told them not to come, I was just not feeling it and didn't want to bring everyone else down.
My day ended up being ok, I was coaxed to lunch with my baby's dad...that was nice...and he gave me a gift or two...so again, it ended ok.
What I can say though, just do something to make yourself happy at least once a day. If it's calling a friend, watching a favorite program, blowing bubbles with your kids (or alone...lol)...find something. Life is too short. Call someone and tell them you love them. Apologize. You don't have to say for what...maybe you didn't do anything, maybe you did...maybe they just need to hear it.
Depression is real.
