My intention was to get back into full swing with blogging again, but I'm still lacking focus and concentration due to all that has gone on with The Captain's surgery, his recovery and life in general.
Best way I can describe it . . .
I'm feeling numb.
There are so many unresolved issues buzzing around in my thoughts that I need to sort out and I haven't been able to deal with them.
Since I quit working, I've not been able to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life professionally. What would make me happy? I honestly don't know . . . however, doing nothing has left a void within me that can't be filled by merely being a housewife.
I'm a doer who hasn't been doing
and feeling a little lost!
It really isn't about money, except that I have a need to feel like I'm contributing to the household financially. My dad did a good job drilling the financial contribution thing in my head when I was very young. He would be disappointed in me . . .
Today would have been my wedding anniversary with JR . . . it is one of those grief trigger days that makes me sad. It is so ironic to feel this way in the midst of one of my happiest times since The Captain came into my life.
I'm really happy and other than these emotional issues, my life is as near perfect as I have ever imagined.
So . . . what's the problem?
I'm constantly asking myself!
There are so many people out there
in this world with REAL problems
and that realization makes
me feel so guilty!
Needless to say, high anxiety has continued
to plague me and it feels like depression
has started to set in again.
There is a fine line between anxiety and depression . . . sometimes it is difficult to know when one filters into the other.
