links + loves (plus a major life update!)

I have honestly been terrible with blogging for the past little while. If I’m being completely honest, I’ve been focusing on my own mental health to get through 2018.
I wasn’t sure whether or not I was ready to publicly share it, but I think I am. In October, with everything going on with my criminal case, I tried to commit suicide. I overdosed on Tylenol 3s and sleeping pills. I’ve been focusing on my recovery for the past few months, which has taken a lot of my time and a huge toll on me. I figure tomorrow is a fresh start and hopefully 2019 is great for my recovery. I’m currently on a mixture of antidepressants and mood stabilizers, which have been helping significantly as well as a PRN for panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. I think I’m finally on the right road to recovery and I’m looking forward to what happens in my future.
Christmas really helped me heal as well, because I got to spend time with my loved ones and it reminded me how truly loved I am. I spent Christmas day with my mom and her boyfriend – we went to see his mom in her long term care home then I had Christmas dinner with my parents, my mom’s boyfriend’s son and his girlfriend. If you know me personally, you most likely know that planning Christmas this year was super stressful for me. Boxing Day was great for me, too. I did some shopping, I found some great deals on stuff for when I move. Then I went to my sister’s to exchange gifts and had some leftovers. Last but not least, it was Mater’s 7th birthday on the 26th! I can’t believe that Mater is so old already. It feels like just yesterday we were bringing him home.

Anyways, that’s my life in a nutshell. I thought I would give a little update now that I’m starting to feel better. I thought I would share some links for links & loves this week since it’s been a while since I posted.
