HI guys!

Just checking in with everyone....hope you are all feeling well and enjoying your weekend.

Things have been crazy here, but the kids and I are finally settled in the apartment. Life is soooo much easier for me now! They seem to be adjusting well. I have my first appointment with the attorney on Monday morning. Just ready to have this dissolution done already. So ready to get on with life....but, all in good time. I've waited this long....a few more weeks won't kill me.

Just wanted to check in real quick with you all and send you lots of love and big hugs!

Thank you! I feel better than I have in years! Can't believe it took me this long to see how unhappy I have really been. It really did take me getting so sick for so long to realize how life can be snatched away from you. I finally decided that I wanted more and FINALLY had the courage and strength to go after it.

I knew that I had to do something....I started to flare a little over a month ago and I knew it was because of my living situation and the stress that I was under. No way am I letting myself get that sick again! As soon as I started making major decisions, my symptoms cleared up and I have not had any problems since. I think that all of this will be the key to a long remission for me!

Hope you are doing well!
HUGS, Mindy

Mindy, I'm so glad you could listen to your body and that the stress of moving and the transition hasn't been bad (or maybe just minor compared to the situation before?)

I hope all goes well for you and you stay healthy!
