Another month says farewell

Well folks, November is coming to an end for 2012. 
Though it's a 30 day month, I swear, it has felt twice as long to me.

                                                         Highlights of the month:
  • NaBloPoMo!  I loved meeting so many bloggers and their blogs - many were added to my blog list, and I'm excited to keep in touch with my new friends!
  • Meeting my new best friend!  This pup has been such a joy to have.  While he hasn't fixed all my problems or lifted my depression, he sure has brought more comfort into my world.
  • Making the best pie I've ever made for Thanksgiving dessert.
Lowlights of the month:
  • Stupid depression.... plummeted over the last few weeks.... 
  • I'm in the process of a med adjustment, which is never fun.
Finally, a brief response to NaBloPoMo's prompt for today:
Through this month's NaBloPoMo challenge, I learned that being real on my blog is actually helpful and inspiring to others.  I've been hesitant, at times, in posting how I'm *really* doing, for fear of turning away my readers.  I now see how sharing my reality, which has always been therapeutic for me, has actually connected me with complete strangers, and made me feel a lot less alone!

And that, my friends, is the end of NaBloPoMo!  
Or as Porky Pig likes to say, "That's all folks!"


  1. Congratulations on completing NaBloPoMo and on being honest about how you're doing. Hope the med issue stabilizes for you soon.

    1. Thank you Marilyn! I'm glad you stopped by! Fingers crossed the meds adjust well, and I do plan on continue the honesty path :)
      Happy December!

  2. Hi! I am so glad I hsve joined nablopomo, too. There are a lot of times I hit blank, but it has been fun meeting wonderful people like you. I was supposed to sleep early tonight (It is evening of Dec 1st on my side of the world) free from the nablopomo when I realized I signed my other neglected blog up! Hope I could get through the madness the second time around!

    1. I am right there with you Marie, on the hitting dead air throughout the month. It was fun reading everyone's "I have nothing to post" posts :) Good luck with your next round, and it has been so nice to meet you!

  3. Yeah for being real! As a reader I must admit I like knowing someone else is going through the same things and its not just me! (Even though I would never wish this on someone!)

    1. Strange how tough being real can be, yet, comments like yours are so affirming that it is the right thing to do. I'm right there with you on never wishing this kind of living hell on anyone, and am (sadly) glad you can relate! Thanks for stopping by!


So? What do you think?
