Coping Mechanisms

Things I have done since yesterday --

1. Weighed myself and realized I have lost 21.6 pounds in two months. Hoo-RAH.

2. Gone out for beers and a gooey, cheesy bean burrito at a favorite restaurant with old friends who get me.

3. Taken a long jacuzzi bath with tangerine-scented bath salts by candlelight.

4. Accepted an invitation to go on a family outing today at the local museum with old friends.

5. Watched my son approach me this morning and say, "How are you doing?" clear as day.

It's another day. I still don't feel quite right, but I'm happy there are things to enjoy today.

This is a video I watch when I'm blue. It's from the television show Scrubs. Just try not to smile.
