But I’m much better with physical pain than I am emotional pain. Even though I’ve had a lot of experience with both. Another part of the reason I feel so cruddy today is because I’m battling a bit of depression. I purchased and read Nora Roberts’ latest book. The fourth part of her Bride Quartet, Happily Ever After. And I loved the story. But instead of feeling like I escaped to a place where my life didn’t really intrude. I feel like my life just doesn’t measure up to where it should. This is a constant issue for me, being a single mom, (twice!!), having a not successful job, and having absolutely NO ONE interested in me.
I slept in snatches last night. I snatched a couple of hours between ten and midnight, tossed and turned until 2 and then got online from 2:30 to 4.
I’ve started reading Single Dad Laughing, and he’s proposed this amazing idea, that I’d LOVE to be a part of. I’d love to say that I am a DANOAH girl. But I just can’t be that yet. I was that girl, when I was in high school, I was happy and felt beautiful, and never really gave much thought to my weight and size. And somehow after graduating it’s become a much bigger issue for me. I think that my struggle with my weight is a leading reason for my current depression. And so here I am trying to muddle my way through, maybe waddle is a better word choice.
I was so impressed with Barefoot Foodie, when we she did a Vlog with Andy, her man, about their sizes and the differences in them. And how he didn’t care about her size and about the fact that she couldn’t fit his pants. (Which I personally think is wonderful, but I totally understand her issue with it. Cat’s father had a 36 inch waist. I don’t think I even have a 36 inch inseam. So I get it. And I totally turned green with envy at her size 16 self.)
And apparently I just needed to vent, and maybe someone out there, who ends up reading this (instead of my weekly weigh in post) will have some clue, some insight, some inspiration, some sort of hope for me, in this sad little rain cloud I’m carrying around with me.
