Feeling emotions.

Sitting here, as it is nearing midnight, tears are filling my eyes, as I am feeling...emotions. I feel happy, and I feel sad, I can breath, but most importantly, I feel ALIVE. Feelings I do not think I have felt for nearly three years. It has been almost impossible to feel anything but tired, anxious and depressed. It wasn't until last Thursday that I finally discovered why. I was on the wrong antidepressant. As in, oh. so. very. wrong.

Making the switch has been incredible. I am no longer sleeping almost all day, I am not eating every single feeling, and I can feel every range of emotions, both good and bad, and happy and sad and I am relishing in every single moment. I was able to go outside yesterday and ENJOY my family, I went shopping, on a bike ride and even tried to Rip Stick! Something I haven't been physically able to do. It was like there has been a wall around anything that I enjoyed. If I would sit down to work, leave the house to play with my family or blog, I would be attacked by anxiety, a virtual wall would surround my immediate self and I would freeze. The only place that felt safe was my bed. It has been awful. It has been so very sad.

Inside my heart and mind I knew what was happening. It was as if I could see from the outside that I was frozen, and I screamed and yelled at this girl to get up and just do it. Be brave...but she couldn't. It was not until last week that I could finally move past the virtual walls around this girl and FREE her. I cry as I write this. I cannot fully tell you how much this change means to me. It is as if I have been dead for three years, and I have been given sweet life again! I am so so so thankful for the health problems that got me to finally go into my doctor and ask for a change. I am thankful my doctor was busy so that I could see a new doctor and she took the time to LISTEN to me, to hear my cries and to offer support in the form of a listening ear, and a willingness to FIX me...not just guess.

I have me back. With that comes ALL of me...even the blogging me. I am SO happy guys. I am SO excited to be back. I have so so so so so much to give, so many many stories to tell. Get ready.

Keep the mixture cooled and pat it on your lips as often as
necessary. Vitamin E is particularly beneficial, promoting healing, good blood
circulation, and fortified capillary walls.
This will cause the hair to stretch and finally break.

Here's a review of the various sunless product lines for your guidance.

Vitamin D is the superhero of nutrients, and the best way to get
it is from the sun, which causes your skin to manufacture it.
Aqua Tan seemed too good to be true, and I could
not wait to get my own tube in the mail to try it out for myself.

A 24 hour plumbing company offers you some of the best deals
that includes periodical maintenance visits and will also be there
to take care of emergency situations. If an electronic device does contain lead, make
sure that it is removed and disposed of properly
so that it is not incinerated or placed in a land disposal.
I didn't like the feel of it and it was too expensive. The prevention of lead poisoning
isn't hard ' it just takes a bit of effort on our part and the part of
the national government. But i guess that we are very important, so instead of taking risk
by our own it is better to call of an expert who is
having a complete knowledge related to the work of plumbing.

But, often times this is not the case which is the reason why professional plumbers are in the plumbing business.

Teachers at Access Training plumbing classes in Bristol have observed
that their female students are often more careful and a lot less probable to leave clutter behind them after a job.
The majority of the home improvement tasks begins
from the kitchen and washrooms. It is also
an old business and from the performances of different companies it is crystal clear that who is
serving accurately. 'Plumbing snakes and tools purchased at local hardware stores are not usually as powerful as the equipment professional plumbing services utilize.
