Teetering


So I have written 3 blogs on the state of my current emotional state over the past few months that I have not published.

And for my own safety, I don't think I will.

If I publish them some people might want to commit me to a psychiatric ward.

HA!

I always used to say that having 3 kids would send me over the edge.

And some days I teeter there hanging by a thin thread of sanity.

It's not easy, especially with my hormones continuing to surge up, down, and all around.
Some days are great! and others are just plain hard leaving me in tears. But I know it's only temporary.

That's why I am thankful for all my friends that are patient with me, with family that helps when they can, and for a husband that goes above and beyond his call of duty.

On another note.......I don't think having a handful of peanut butter filled pretzels is called a healthy lunch.
I blame it on the hormones.

I hear ya! I always wanted 3 or 4 kids... On one hand having 3 is a dream come true...but it's SO much harder than I anticipated, which is hard to admit. I just keep reminding myself that so much of what's hard right now, will get easier as they get older. But on the rough days, even that doesn't always help.

Teetering...such a great word picture. I am familiar with the concept--especially these past three months. And I don't even have the post-baby hormones to blame it on.

Oh, Jen! Thanks for sharing your imbalance - now your 'dear ones' have specific prayers to offer for you... and hopefully those within dinner range will hear the call to action as well!

You're a rockstar Jen. I don't even have kids yet but I know it's chaos on the emotions and psych-y. I think we all think your honesty is the best therapy for you and all of us. Not enough women are willingly real about the tough parts.
You know I look to you for mommyhood and how to do it realistically, right :)
