this is what happens...

when the mom is dealing with depression.


i'm showing you this so that you won't be afraid when you knock at my door... and then i open.




in about two weeks when the medication starts to work i'm sure that it can look close to this again. of course i won't be putting christmas decorations up but you get the idea.





keep your fingers crossed for me!

Hang in there Stacy. Just yesterday Amy and I were saying to eachother how neat you are, how well you serve and all the rest of how good your goodness is and there's nothing depressing about that, so there!

Julianne is right. You are such a nice person. I know I don't know you that well, but I am glad to have moved near. Depression is hard, but I am glad you are doing something about it. Can't wait to see the clean house...but just so you know...even 'happy' people have messy houses. :)

I just thought that that's what houses look like when people have kids. How on earth do you keep it looking like the 'before' version, with 4 kids?!
When my house is all clean, it's because company is coming and someone is preoccupying Spencer. As soon as they get here, and he is loose, it looks like it did before they came.

Seasons. One day your kids will grow up, you'll have a spotless house, and you'll wish you had a dirty house full of kids again.

Those baby blues are hard. Having a baby can knock you off your feet, for sure.
((hugs)) things will get better soon. Good for you for taking care of it.

Stacy..my mom always tells me that this time in our lives are just temporary. which is sad in a way and then for days when I am drowning in dirty laundry and nasty dishes...I am glad the sun will come up tomorrow just to have a different day in front of me. Depression is hard, dark and it sucks bad...take advantage of all the help you can get right now. It will be your turn to return the favor someday. Wish there was something I could do to lighten your load.

Oh, Stacy you are not alone. I see my house when I look at your pictures. It is a dark and dreary place to be...but keep your chin up. At least you got help, I should have months ago, she is 19 months old and I just talked to my dr this week. It is amazing to me that I already I have a better attitude and my back has stopped hurting, go figure! And housework is slowly becoming achievable again! Love you!
