May is like a floozy of a month, don’t you think? It’s so close to June, which is yay-hooray summer (except in Portland, where summer waits until July to show up), but it’s still quite cold and gloomy and each warm sunny day is just a big ol’ tease. Amiright?
But we started off the month with a wonderful trip up north to Damian’s parents. It was a great weekend away and the Sunday cruise was definitely the highlight. Waits sure does love that boat!
I continued to see my naturopath and received a diagnosis. Guided by my blood work, we set out on a course of treatment, and the results I got were so quick and so enormous, it felt like nothing short of a miracle. I just can’t speak highly enough about this particular form of medical care. Consider me converted.
My friendship with Jo really blossomed in May, and it was one of the best things to happen to me all year. I don’t get close to people very easily – I hold my cards close to my chest and I prefer to provide support rather than receive it. But if my depression taught me anything, it’s that I need to let people in and I need to open up and talk! Jo is a vegan mama of three (the third one was on the way, back then) and a general all-around grade-A badass. We connect on so many levels, and our friendship became my anchor through the rest of the wild whirlwind of a year that 2012 turned out to be.
June, coming soon . . .
