life sucks right about now

So it appears that I have skipped my period this month and I'm fairly certain it is due to the sudden unwanted stress that has invaded our otherwise happy and comfortable life. (And no, I am NOT pregnant so for those of you who would think or comment as such, please don't). See? I'm still a snapping turtle. Can't help it.

Sadly this stress is starting to take its toll on Tom and I and some mornings when I wake up I think it was all a bad dream and I'm happy. Then I realize it's not and I start each day in tears. I really hate posting when I'm down in these dumps but I can't help it. And believe me it takes a LOT to get me down and in the big scheme of things this may not be the worst thing ever but right now we are both not seeing any light at the end of this tunnel. And that makes for a very grumpy couple. Happy fricking 10 years.

Plus the weather here has been cloudy and overcast for the last several days and I do not do well when I don't see sunshine. Another reason I am in the dumps...

I'll be able to share more on this topic in about another week or so. I HATE that I can't just get it all out here now but due to this being a public type of journal I have to wait until it is ok to share in an open venue.

And for those of you who do know the reason why I thank you so much for your calls, e-mails and text messages of support. Don't think that your words of wisdom and insight are not helping, they are. This is just one tough pill to swallow.

Funny, I dont really know you, but I'm worried because you are not a "down in the dumps" kind of gal! I hope for peace and happiness in your life, soon.

Acupuncutre has helped me immensely -- especially around feeling stressed and generally pissed off. It may be something you may want to give a whirl, if you haven't already.

In regards to your comment Maggie, speaking as a long time friend, Laura has never been a down in the dumps type of gal. You are correct in your assumption and I guess based on her usual blog posts, one could guess that she's typically not a depressed person. As long as I've known you, you are always the one laughing and smiling, making sure everyone else around you is having a good time - much like your Dad.

I don't want to rule out acupuncture because I know it can do wonders for some people so it may be worth checking out just for the stress factor. But not sure that will help the cause for the stress. For that we'll come up with a plan B. I'm already working on something.

Hang in there, Laura... remember, this 'icky season' won't last forever (even though it undoubtedly feels like it will).

Eventually, sunshine will break through your clouds.

So, keep your chin up, ok?

I am sorry that it's so hard right now. I've been thinking of you each day while we were out of town (for our anniversary).
God bless both of you, and Wrigs and Chumley.

I wish I could say something to cheer you up. I will try and make my animals be silly and post some videos. Maybe that will help.

I don't know what's going on in your life right now, but I'm thinking about you, and hoping it gets better very soon.

Sad to hear you are feeling down, I am sending you cheeriness and strength from across the pond. I love your posts, they make me laugh (especially the one where you ran to the phone when you were on the loo) I think of them when I'm depressed and they make me giggle instantly.
