Getting my ducks in a row. (Not the other thing!)

When you get a good hard laugh when you least expect it, now there’s some good medicine! When I have a panic attack or just anxiety, I just can’t eat, or think, or function in a pleasant way. I have been actively working on this for quite some time. I have improved and hope to continue improving. Nothing makes it easier though, than a good laugh. A smile I just can’t help, a chuckle that just keeps bubbling up whether I mean to do it or not. It’s all good stuff and the very best medicine I could hope for. Dare I say it may be better than chewing someone’s ear or blogging it out.

I have always been a laugh-a-holic. Even having had so much depression in my life once a good hard laugh starts I just get drunk on the feeling and allow it to consume me. Not much is better than side splitting laughter. Laughing so hard you can’t straighten out your face, or utter actual words. Good old laughter. I believe the almighty God in heaven gave us laughter as a gift to be used as liberally as oxygen.

Any time I sit down to put anything in an "about me" section I draw a blank. Let's see if after all these months of having this blog I can drum something up. Hmmm.... Well I can't commit. I have trouble doing anything with the stench of permanency attached to it. I have two children and we are a home school family and we like it! I have a lifelong history of depression and roughly the past 25 years of my life panic and anxiety.I come from a long line of alcoholics and drug addicts and crazy people I'm afraid. I have always been told I am the normal one. I guess all that sobriety must have ensured my position as the black sheep of the family. I used to write a lot but once I became a wife and mother there was no time for that anymore. I have never been good at socializing. I am awkward and never know what to say, how to say it, or when. I have been using this blog as my venting place for all sorts of things though I do hope to include some more pleasant entries in the future. I was obese just a few months ago. I have lost 40 pounds so far and am on my way to a healthy weight. I have some good "fitness friends" who have provided support, encouragement and advice which kept me from getting derailed. I am working on self improvement in a lot of ways. I can't be perfect but I can be better at the very least.
