I made it through!

Another round of SYTYCS!

There was so much personal journalling going on, that it would have been impossible to vote. It is amazing to see the kindness and support that each of the women participating in the comp have shown each other. It was a tough week. Re living so much pain and grief has been tough for some of these ladies. I am sure there have been many tears shed and some really down days.

I think its wonderful that the DT decided to make this a non elimination round, cause boy oh boy would being voted out this round have felt personal.
I don't know if you can read my journalling, but its about me and depression. I have it, and it bites. About 12 months ago, I couldn't have done this LO. About 12 months ago I had taken myself off all medication. Cold turkey. I was a mess.
Today I am doing so much better. I am still medicated, and probably will be for a long time, if not forever. And finally, I think I am okay with it. It was all a matter of finding the right dose, the right drug and accepting.
So, thanks for stopping by, have a great week...Sam and I are off to a scrapping class in Gayndah today...Probably won't be there long before the little prince gets restless LOL

Yay we're thru! I'm so gald for everyone - to see someone go would have been much too hard!

Thanks for your support and your lovely comment on my blog! This last week of the comp has been really hard, but at least now I know I'm not alone and people really do care.
