It’s been so long since I’ve blogged and I apologise profusely. It’s been a really hard time for me the past couple of weeks and I’ve just been trying to support my OH as much as possible and so caring for myself was put to the wayside a little bit.
My OH has been suffering from depression for a while but it’s only recently that it’s becoming more frequent and more intense. The past few weeks have been really difficult as it’s the worst that it’s ever been and just trying to be positive for the both of us has been mentally and physically draining. It’s been a very worrying time and my healthy habits I’ve been building up for the past couple of months just took a running jump out of the window.
There’s been a lot of tears and emotional eating along with trying to fit in revision for my exam which was nearly two weeks ago now. I’ve not been to my group meetings as I was too worried to leave OH at home on his own, especially as he was so vulnerable and I was just worried he might do something silly in the spur of the moment. Anyhow, it’s been picking up the last few days and the doctors finally have referred him to a CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) unit after losing his referral a few months ago and so I’m trying to get back on the wagon.
I don’t think I’ve put on too much weight (she says now!) – I guesstimate at around 2.5lbs. I will be going back to group on Monday and getting myself organised with all my posts again. I’m just amazed at people still reading and visiting my blog despite a lack of posts but thank you and I hope you’ve found some of my previous posts helpful.
So.. onwards and upwards!
Until next time.. x
