Well at least I can place partial blame for my recent and current dramatic moodiness (understatement) on perimenopause, not just being a 43 year-old emo dissatisfied with her status in life. This is the first time I’ve been a week and a half late starting my period that I haven’t been feverishly counting back the days on a calendar, trying to figure out if a swimmer might have slipped through since my last period. I feel like my body is clearly still expecting a period to happen any moment now. And my husband annoys the hell out of me just by moving or breathing. I try to be humorous when I complain about him shifting positions in bed for the ten millionth time in five minutes but it doesnt really work. He just acts like a big baby. And that’s even more annoying.

It isn't easy being the parent of a child with special needs (youngest of three kids), let alone being in my mid - 40's. I have my ups and downs. I try to do all I can for her but I’ve put my life and goals on hold several times and I’ve realized I have to do things for myself to be the best I can be for her. I have times when I feel like she is the best thing in my life because she taught me unconditional love and patience. But I also go through bouts of feeling like a wedge has been placed between myself and my dreams and I feel hopeless. These are some of my thoughts, goals, achievements, rants and breakdowns as Sarah’s mom.
