Mental Health

I've always been able to have a thick outer shell. I would let those close to me in, but that's about it. These days my emotions are right on the surface, ready to bubble over at any minute. I rage... I cry... I am out of control.

It's been 3 months since Dad died. In that 3 months, I've gotten divorced, moved, worked tons of hours a week, worked on Etsy, and so much more... I can't believe it's been 3 months.

Today or tomorrow (depending on some factors at work), I'm taking a mental health day. I need some time. I'm going to the woods. Alone. And I am going to see what shape I am mentally after a bit. I wish I had the luxury of time and could go meditate on a mountaintop for a week... but I don't. So, I'll start with this.

What do you do for your mental health?

I think going to the woods is a great idea! Usually, I don't have the option of getting away, so when I have a problem, I talk to you. :) You are the one who keeps me sane, and I thank the powers that be every single day that I have you.
