Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement yesterday! I have to say that I felt a little silly complaining about lack of sleep and weight gain when there are so many bloggers with much more serious problems out there. I did manage to get a good night's sleep on Sunday night (with a little help from Advil PM). I also got some exercise and a shower yesterday, and managed to get a little cleaning and decorating done, which made me feel a lot better. I guess the key is to take every day as it comes.
But reading all your comments was the best part of my day. Just knowing that I'm not going through this alone made a big difference in my outlook. Thank you so much, dear bloggers. You are the very best! :)
