Over the last week or so I’ve been feeling low and fragile. I know it’s just a bump in the road and eventually I will feel better day by day. Ella has been on a sporadic sleeping pattern again leaving both me and the hubby extremely sleep deprived at night time.
Myles also went through a growth spurt recently which didn’t help as he required more boob time than normal. Some nights he’s been sleeping for blocks of 2 hours at a time before waking for milk again at night time.
A lot has happened the past week with sleep deprivation making its come back, Ella throwing screaming tantrums a bit too often and other issues creeping in unrelated to the kiddos, hasn’t made me feel any better either.
My family have been extremely supportive with helping me with the children and I’ve had lovely encouraging messages from everyone. (It means the world to me that you care. Thank you people!!!)
I’m trying to stay positive and keep myself perky and happy in front of the children as they can sense when something is wrong. But it seems to be exhausting me even more. 😬
Yesterday I couldn’t hold back my tears again and had to sneak off to the bathroom to have a bit of a cry. Dealing with an issue (not to do with my kiddos or hubby) whilst I’m already feeling low, tipped me over the edge again. 😢
I have some exciting things happening and I’m trying to stay focused on that and not spiral into darkness or procrastinate with the progress of my projects I have going.
I’m completely aware of my emotional state and I know I need to make some mental changes in order to get out of this funk.
I need to switch my negative thoughts into positives and for the next 7 days, I’ll be doing just that! I know it’s probably going to take more than 7 days to get back to my usual self, but it’s a start.
