Well, 2012 ended up being quite a rotten year for our house. Along with the usual little niggles and bad news that can befall any family, we’ve had a few biggies too.
- We’ve been pushed from pillar to post re: The Child’s ASD assessment and diagnosis, told yes, no and maybe more times than I’ve had warm meals! But still not much further forward in any of it (Another phone call meeting is happening after New Year, about some support at home and school, so that’s something!)
- My partner moved in with us. And then moved back out when we broke up in what was a rather unpleasant break up (I’m not going into details for obvious reasons.)
- I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (or PCOS). And while this doesn’t mean that I am infertile, it does mean that there’s only a slim chance of conceiving should I try in the future. For someone who has always wanted at least 2 or 3 children, that’s hard news to hear. There are things I can do to increase the chances, but still hard work.
On top of all of that, probably not surprisingly, my depression came back with vengeance, and brought her friend ‘panic attack’ to join us too. I holed myself away, ignoring even my closest of friends. Housework was done to a minimum. Bills unpaid. And roughly 6 months later I’m only just starting to kick myself up the backside, pull my head out of the sand and sort myself (and my life, home and business) out. I mostly have a plan in place for the unpaid bills. Housework is slowly getting sorted out slowly after a few months of neglect. A better diet is planned to sort my body out. And one of my bestest friends introduced me to one of her old school friends, with the intention of us pulling each other out of the horrible funks we’d gotten ourselves into. Well, we’re now an item. A long distance item, but an item non-the-less ❤
And so, that is my long winded explanation of why I have decided to leave my blog over on Blogspot/Blogger (Which can be found here in case anybody is interested), and make home for it here to see in the new year. Because 2012 was a horrible year for me, and I can’t wait for a fresh start to what will hopefully be a much better 2013!
One of my New Years resolutions this year is to keep this blog up to date. I hope to post at least once a week. Let’s see how long I can keep it up! ^_^
Happy New Year everyone! See you all in 2013!
