When Life Gives You Lemons

Well, obviously my plan for blogging regularly this year did NOT happen… life has just been crazy and I didn’t make time for anything that I love to do or was a “self-care” type thing. (which blogging totally is for me) It’s very easy for me to be consumed by all the things everyone else needs from me and I just push myself to the bottom of the list. Which is NOT a good trait, I do realize that.

But I did set out making this the year I made that change. And I have in small ways so far. I started going to therapy and that has helped a lot. I am taking a break from it for summer because it’s just so hard to fit into my schedule and I just need a little break from thinking about it all tbh but I do plan on going back. I also went to see a natural doctor and had a bunch of blood tests done to figure out what is going on and why I’ve gained so much weight (among MANY other things). This was a HUGE step for me because I’m not a huge fan of going to the doctors ( is anyone?!).  I also decided to start my photography biz back up, which is a HUGE passion of mine. You can check it out at if you want!

When the results came back I wasn’t too surprised at the results. Low iron, low vit d, crazy low pregnenolone, low vitamin c, among a few others. Anyways, I’ve made small changes and hopefully I will be able to keep adding more as I heal/feel better/gain energy. It’s so easy to feel defeated when your body is tired, stressed out, and not working properly. I get so tired so easily lately it drives me bonkers. Honestly, most days I’m tired as soon as I get up. I’m realizing though, that I have to believe in myself and Believe that my body can heal otherwise, I never will.


Next week I’ll talk more about what my ND has me doing and some things I’ve been researching on my own.

  1. You’re doing a great job! It’s so tough taking care of yourself being a mom and doing all the things your kids need from you. Learning what they truly need from you is a great thing for them & for you. Keep working and you’ll get there. It’ll be tiring so remind yourself that self care isn’t necessarily working towards a goal 😉
