Thankful for therapy

I am so glad that I decided to go back to the therapist. If was definitely needed. It helped out a ton, but I still need to go back.

She helped me to see that Rich’s Mom is just an anxious person who is always going to need something to worry about. She has just picked the dogs and C to be what she is going to obsessively worry about. We need to do what is best for our family and not worry about her feelings. If she has hurt feelings, so what? What is best for C and us is number one.

This weekend we will be going to Rich’s mom’s house for his grandma’s birthday. Did you get that? It will be interesting to see what happens with her and see if she says anything. I doubt it. I think sometimes she is just so oblivious to what is going on.

I think I may be getting my PPD now. I have been more emotional and on the edge lately. Stupid little things are upsetting me. I am not feeling like being as social as I normally would. I just feel like spending time at home and that is where things started before. I am hoping maybe it is just all the stress lately that is really getting me down. We are starting the busy birthday season for Rich’s family so I keep thinking about all the weekends just slipping away with all the running around and craziness coming up. Things at work are stressful too. Lots of big changes going on that we aren’t being made aware of until after the fact.
