I suppose that over half the world feels those familiar "holiday" blues about this time, paying bills, families going in different directions, feeling isolated....yep, you have what I call the "reality pains of post holiday celebrations" :turn-l: It's a short time of sadness....but it will pass my friend. It doesn't help that you aren't feeling good either.
What a wonderful gift that you don't have to go through all this alone; having a compassionate companion and friends who love you; and kids who can make your heart soar in a day.....I'm sure the kids miss you too.
If I may share this thought with you about the meds; it just plain ole' sucks....there's no wonderful word to describe it. Are there other alternatives to the dosage....I wish you didn't have to be so sick; but it sounds like you're taking good care of yourself, and that is important.
You're in my prayers, friend. Hold on and let us hold you up...if you're too tired to stand.
We love you.
