I don't know how to be just me

I am coming to the realization that I don't remember how to be just me. How to be pregnant? Definitely.How to be a mom? Check. Well, as much as anyone can know how to be a mom. I still don't think it's something you can master. Anyways, moving on. Out of the last 36 months, I've spent 18 months pregnant, almost 8 months nursing, 8 months fighting PPD without knowing the culprit was my thyroid, about 13 months on antidepressants, and the entirety of it I've been a wife, 2 of the years I've been a mom. I don't really remember how to be just me, how to be an individual outside of my role as wife/mom.

I think it's time to rediscover myself. Take up a hobby again (other than selling Scentsy, haha). Get back into scrapbooking, take a Yoga class, get into Nursing School, find a volunteer position to involve myself with. I know there have to be other moms who have struggled with losing sight of themselves as individuals, I want to hear from you. What do you do to keep that from happening?

  1. I take medication. And two of the kids are in school. I write a blog, sew, and try to get out of the house every day.
