Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Melancholy

I was reading a book when I was about 12 and came across the word MELANCHOLY. My name is Melody. SOOO many people (including my MIL now!) call me Melanie. I really don't like that but I don't sweat it at this late date. Anyway, when I read this word in print, in my mind I pronounced it mel-ann-coe-lee. I also mind-said muh-cab-ree for macbre LOL. Hubby's very elderly Uncle David at our church always calls me Melancholy, so I rub his buzzed almost bald head and tell him to get a trim he looks like a hippie.

My point is, I am very melanncoelee these days. I don't know if its hormonal (probably), or the end of summer (very possible), or just my natural negative nature. I do know that I don't like it. I've sank very deep into a pit way beyond the blues before and I don't ever want to do that again. I'm reading my Bible every day. I'm enjoying the days home alone between now and baby time. I'm sewing, I'm cleaning. All the things that normally keep me on an even keel..maybe they are keeping me from sinking LOWER but I don't want to even loiter on the edge.

I................can't even think of anything else to say =/
sigh..

Melzie,
Know that someone is praying for you! :) I have been there, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. One thing that helped me was to know that God created me, and he loves me just the way I am. Well, guess what? He created you and He loves you just the way you are, too! :) Praying this feeling leaves you quickly.

I hope you have talked to your doctor about this. Your hormonal swings are bound to create mood swings as well.
