It's amazing what an hour or so

of cuddling can do to one's emotional well being. This morning the alarm went off at 5:15 a.m. The house was freezing because the windows were open and we were snuggled up under our big down comforter. I moved to get up and Marc just grabbed me and snuggled up and told me that we didn't have to go to the gym today. We just laid in bed, snuggled up, occasionally beating the shit out of the alarm clocks. When I finally managed to peel myself away from him I felt recharged. My depression lifted a bit. My physical pain had subsided (been suffering from major reflux) and just felt stronger. Go figure - a day I don't work out - I feel like I could take on the world. I'm having dinner with my Mom tonight. Tonight I will learn why I have been getting the cold shoulder. As a good friend pointed out... I need to stop worrying about the "why" of things. I worked on that last night. I'm trying to let go of the "why" and I think it's helping me not worry about tonight. There is nothing I can do about the why - only how I react to it. Hopefully my therapist will call me back today to schedule an appointment.

  3. Glad the snuggle therapy helped a bit. Great advice about the not worrying about the "why" of it. I'll have to try that.

  4. Hey Julie,

    Just caught up with your blog. I'm so sorry to read your latest. Just wanted to say I'm thinking of you.

  5. I don't know which self-help guru said it, but it goes something like this: "The healthier you become, the less interested you are in 'why'."

    But at this stage of the game, it sounds like you want some answers from your mother, and I hope that you get them.
