It's been an emotionally draining day for me. But that's okay, because I thrive on my emotions. Or they control me somehow. Or I like them...or something.
It's funny, you know. Emotions. We're taught that we are to control our emotions, but at the same time, we shouldn't completely repress them. It's a constant battle, and if you throw in mental illness of any kind, it's almost impossible without outside help. But that's okay. And getting help is okay. In fact, at times it's an absolute must.

I know it's real --I've had it three other times. It's getting worse with each kid, too --but not as bad as it could be. And in reality, I didn't get it with #2, which makes me feel better.
