Liberating actually

Feeling a little bit better today. Thanks so much for all the hugs! They are just as good as the in-person kind. Hubby and I had a chat about the whole thing and he was understanding (of course) so that made me feel much better. He is trying to do little things like remove the abundance of alcohol we have in our house (we have had people over to the house quite a few times in the last couple of weeks). Everyone brings wine (which is very nice) and we had bought a bunch of beer for a BBQ and no one drank it so alcohol was literally taking over my fridge. Seriously, I could barely fit in the milk.
I have also found a silver lining in the whole TTC burnout thing. I actually think about other things during the day. My brain has shut down to the babymaking thoughts and I can think about....Whatever else. I block it out so much that I almost forgot to take my drugs the other night. I am liking the new found brain freedom.
I will keep trying to get out of this funk. Anyone have any favorite books, quotes, songs, or other means of inspiration? I need a new perspective.

I'm very glad to hear that Hubby listened to you, and that y'all were able to talk. I'll bet that alone made you feel ten times better!

I say the whole shutting-down-the-brain thing is good. And while I don't know much about the TCC stuff, I would imagine that anything that takes over your brain to that extent can't be healthy. So go ahead and forget about it! Read some trashy novels or something, and let your brain rest. You deserve it!!

Anything by Anne Lamott is inspiring... try her books Traveling Mercies or Plan B. :)

I second the Anne Lamott. And I also think that anything that will make you dance is good in the way of music. I like Gwen Stefani, Pink, and other artists you might find abominable. But you asked!

I just bought an Anne Lamott book this weekend! I love booty shaking music, too. (Love the new Sexy Back song by Justin Timberlake...I know...cheesie) What about taking a class at a local community center or college? Or maybe do an exercise class you've always wanted to try? I signed up for kickboxing two years ago at the Y and LOVED it.
