Went back to work. I DID IT

Well it has been a hard rough road. As many of you know I developed panic attacks and depression after my loss. I have been out of work on disability since Sept.2. Well today I went back to work (teaching). I was nervous and I know I will still have those tough days. But I did it. I did not even need to take my break through anxiety medication.
It is a rough bunch of students, but I am sure Antionette will give me some ideas on how to get them trained again.

I am just so proud of myself. It has been a hard journey. Now the next step is trying to conceive again, but that won't be until April or May.

Just wanted to share good news for once.

I feel so much pressure! Hope the "T" chart works.

Oh BTW I forgot to mention that I'm so proud of you (but I would have been proud even if you just got one foot out the door).

Do you think Rebecca and Lily are having a celebration together? They must have chocolate cake up in Heaven!
