Rainbows, Unicorns, and Motherhood #6: Selfcare(ish)

I’ve been stressed.

PTSD, anxiety, kids, anxiety, Marine Corps, anxiety, medical board (taking months longer than it is supposed to), anxiety, home buying, anxiety, marriage, anxiety, housekeeping, anxiety, and a sprinkling of…dare I say depression?

Not really sure what that is but it’s bugging me.

Today was a “take-a-bath-with-your-kid-while-watching-Scooby-Doo” and “pour Ovaltine on your spoonful of snack peanut butter” type of day. Those were my attempts at “self-care” today. Not sure I can muster much else.

One of the few things I will miss from this house is the soaking tub.

At this point I’ve been in the medical board process for well over a year. The person paid to be my “liaison” with the board has answered one communication of at least a dozen in the past few months. I’ve written Congress and the USMC Inspector General with no resolution or response (except acknowledgement of receipt). I am tired of this. I am glad I am still getting paid, but I feel let down by the service. Not the feeling I wanted on the way out the door.

The bath and chocobutter isn’t doing it for me. What are your self-care routines?

Love others. Love self. Love coffee.
