What I Did When My Husband Lost His Mom

On Sunday, November 12th, 2017, my mother-in-law left this world to join my father-in-law in Heaven. I never had the pleasure of knowing my father-in-law, but the years I had with my mother-in-law are something I will never take for granted. She was kind-hearted, incredibly generous, absolutely hilarious, and such an amazing cook. She loved my husband more than anything and she would have been the greatest Nana.

It’s Not Easy to Have a Friend with a Mental Illness

I knew her in high school. We didn’t always run in the same circle of friends, but our high school wasn’t one of the largest. She was perpetually happy, and there was a never a high school function that I didn’t see her at.

Fast forward, 9 years later. She is telling me a story and I cannot believe that this is the same bubbly girl I once saw bouncing down the hallways of my high school. My friend suffers from severe bipolar depression, an illness that creeps up on you as it did my friend.

However, from time to time, and not so frequently anymore, I find myself feeling incredibly scared. For those who don’t know, Tyler and I found out we had lost our first baby on February 7th, 2014.

We’ve all been here.

Listen, it’s not every time that I regret making weekend plans, in fact it’s hardly ever that this happens.

It’s only when I have “one of those weeks” where work has sucked every ounce of energy from my body and I literally have nothing left to give.
