I’m not lazy, but I do know my limits and have learned to respect them.

I’m not delusional — I don’t expect that life is supposed to be wonderful all the time and that I should never feel angry, upset, frustrated, tired, sad, lonely, etc; but I also don’t think those s/b the dominant emotions in my life, either.

I hate being lumped in together w/the many women out here on “Mormon candy” (aka Prozac, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Celexa, ad nauseum ad infinitum) who ARE either lazy or delusional or both.

but the fact is, I do have a severe hormone imbalance — PMDD — that makes half of my life hell and wreaks havoc on my family as well… until I can find a doctor who 1) understands hormone imbalance (outside of infertility issues) and 2) is willing to work w/me to find natural/alternative therapies that will help my body function properly, I need to be back on the Zoloft just so I can cope and take care of my home and family. I hate Hate HATE having to admit that, but as my DH very gently pointed out to me this morning, “there’s no way my over-achiever wife could possibly be using anti-depressants as a crutch, so don’t worry about what other people think or what groups they lump you into — you and I both know better.” I’m very blessed to be married to such a good, understanding, supportive husband. ❤
