I still welcome additional assistance (follows and shares, everyplace you find me online) in building my "platform" in order to show publishers I'm serious about this book business. :)
magnitude of my injuries and recovery.
I guess in brain recovery years, it was a lifetime ago. I was just 18 months old in several newly wired parts of my brain, only the first 1/3 of my current recovery timeline!
Speaking of brain re-wiring, I am pleased to report that I have been able to cut my antidepressant dose down from 40 to just 10 on my hardest days, 5 actually most days since I came home from Mount Hermon. As low as that dose has gotten, if I miss a morning pill, we all know it early/mid afternoon! (By then it is too late to take that day or I won't sleep that night.) So my brain is still not fully capable of compensating for the emotional needs of daily life, simple people interaction, without a little help, but wow have we come far!
I'm just trying to keep up with "ordinary" life (that's extraordinary that I can do these things at all!), laundry (I now do pretty much all my own folding / neat wadding) and dishes for a family of five. Supervising homework and actually making time to talk and play with my kids. I'm still trying to write my books and find it incredibly slow going. I'm trying to juggle all family member's schedules for doctors and dentists and orthodontists and year end tests, finals, awards ceremonies, parties, summer trips (every one of our kids is taking at least one significant out-of-state trip without us for different portions of the summer, ranging from five days to eight weeks!). Trying to learn all our new insurances that just changed the beginning of this month (and thankful we have them, but overwhelmed understanding them all). There's a garden that grows weeds faster than roses, a garage, office and master bed/bathroom that sort of looks like an episode of hoarders - even when I make progress it piles up again nearly overnight. And there's still therapy two mornings a week and Bible study one full day each week and trying to keep up with friendships and home Scripture study and exercises... My plate is full and I am blessed!
