Time to Focus on Me!

It has been a really rough year.  I am sure it has been challenging for other people and families as well.  The struggle is real and always has been.  A few days, months, years.  It doesn’t matter how short or long.  Life is so very real.  I know you realize this.  You might even think “Thank you captain obvious”. LOL

I can’t seem to talk about the last year Lily and I have experienced without thinking that other people have suffered so much more.  I need to just get over it and focus on myself. I have neglected myself.  I am so focused on Lily and other people.  I have been a paralegal for 16 years.  I have a gift for public service and I love helping people.  I utilize resources available to be an advocate for anyone and everyone.

Right now, in this time, I am going to take steps to work on my mental and physical health.  I told my VA mental health doctor that I probably need therapy and then I thought about a blog. Get it all out little by little.  It seems like a lot as it all started when I was 3. After all these years, I truly believe that the last year was absolutely the most intense time in my life.
