I got the new site up and running yesterday! You can pay us a visit @ https://ahomeforourfuture.wordpress.com/
Since Luke and I decided that we wanted a family, we have been full of dreams and hopes. This is going to be an emotional rollercoaster but I think we’re up to it. I know that together we can make our family a reality and support each other along the way. The past couple of days have been full of ups and downs; all in all I’m really happy with how I’ve been dealing with things.
Telling my mum was the best part after the actual decision was made. She and I have had our differences in the past when I was a rebellious teenager but now I know that I’ve always had her full support. When I got her sat down with a coffee yesterday I broke the news and after a moment added “You’re going to be a Grandma!” – the expression on her face was priceless.
In terms of my mental health lately I’m on a solid run of good days – not objectively good but in my eyes I’ve weathered all the little storms admirably. I’m very pleased that my psychiatrist has agreed to try me on sodium valproate for the moods, and we’ve halved the sertraline to 50mg. Part of me is afraid the reduction in anti-depressant is going to cause issues but so far it seems to be alright.
I want to keep this up for the long-term. I am concerned about the referral back to CMHRS and then onto the PD Forum but I think anything that helps me keep treading water successfully is a good thing – and if I learn to swim, all the better!
