TPT

This past weekend she went a little cookoo.

The details are embarrassing to write down. When her episode was over, one word kept moving in slow-motion in her brain:

PSY-CHOOOOO-SIS.

Slow and orblike. over and over.

She still hasn't fully recovered. She has been distracted by a few things here and there: election, no milk left in the fridge, Big Apple Circus, the beginning of the Holiday Avalanche, and castings, but she goes right back to that place.

She is taking a new step on her journey to recovery, although she can't imagine she will wake up one day and say...it's finished over done.

No, instead she anticipates a daily battle to hold on to the core of who she is and to just be steady.

A new doctor is joining her team on Monday. Dr. Shrink.

Steady, steady now.

Hang in there Kage, you have a lot of people praying for you and your family. The holidays always bring on a lot of stress for people, add that to an election year that you were very emotionally invested in and I'm sure it would send someone without the medical issues over the edge. Good luck.

Your courage throughout this ordeal of medical trials is an inspiration. I think you are doing an amazing job manging life as a bishop's wife and mother of two beautiful little girls out in the big city. I admire your optimism and fortitude through this stressful, difficult journey. You are a beautiful person and I know you will make it through this.

Now go do what I do when I'm stressed and overwhelmed... shop! :)
