Well, I had to take a little hiatus. Sorry to those of you who bother to read my blog. It wasn't entirely a blog Hiatus, it was mostly a life hiatus. I took a few days off work, didn't both looking at the computer, making many phone calls or really doing much of anything. Even my poor mother didn't know where I went. It felt good to get away. For those of you who don't know, I was taking an antidepressant prior to Hunters conception and was originally told by a different doctor that I could keep and should keep taking them through the pregnancy. Then my latest doc, who I dearly favor, suggested I try to make a go at it without them, primarily for the emotional health of the baby. Often babies can have emotional issues and some suffer chemical withdrawal after birth from the pills. So, I stopped taking them. And it took nearly a month to get them out of my system. The last week or so was the worst as I pretty much got to the point where I thought that the physical withdrawal pains would never go away. Dee assured me that I would feel better soon. And yay to finally getting through it. Frigging worst feeling ever. Brain Zaps. It's a feeling like someone is holding two live wires together inside your head. A shocking, jolting kind of feeling accompanied with anxiety, blood pulsing to your extremities, sudden fear and nervousness and shortness of breathe. Most usually these brain zaps would occur when I would get up, stand up, walking up stairs, or anything that caused a sudden movement of blood. It was awesome! And now it seems that they are finally gone, and I'm feeling 100 times better. So, hopefully today I can find a bit of time to post some news about things. Let's see how I do, shall we!

Oh honey, thank God you are back! That all sounds pretty evil! Try Bach flower remedies if you need something while pregnant. See the links on my blog. And congrats on Pheonix. You are stealing my name by the way. Well the middle name. Which I still intend to use when I concieve a boy. I am happy you are back and blogging.
