Winter is wicked. So happy to finally get snow yesterday. Hopefully it sticks around! This was right before the blizzard kicked in over eastern Newfoundland and dropped 30cm. Saku and I weathered the storm from my @msr_gear Hubba Hubba NX tent. It held up great.
What a very cool experience I must say. I guess discomfort for some is comfort for others haha
Have you ever had that feeling that your life is out of control? Like you have no idea how you got to where you were and you’ve lost who you were? Ultimately that’s how I’ve been feeling lately, and that thought of not knowing who I was anymore was driving me deeper into blackness.
I had gone into the worst state of depression I’d been in in about 5 years when I found out it was going to be difficult for my husband and I to start a family, if not impossible. I knew I was depressed, but I didn’t realize just how badly.
I’ve spent the last two weeks digging myself out of that hole, and while I’m still battling these feelings of failure, letdown, and defeat, I’m working on bringing myself back to who I was and have seen an improvement.
I’ve been mostly staying off social media, posting here & there. I turned off all notifications, as I truthfully had become obsessed with checking things every few minutes. It was ruling my life & becoming an unhealthy habit to distract myself, from myself.
I’ve altered my unhealthy sleep patterns to a strict routine to help eliminate my horrible insomnia. I’ve lessened using my phone more than 5 minutes each night before bed or in the morning - eventually to not use at all within an hour of bed. I’ve focused on my activity level and getting up to do even routine things around the house in addition to getting out with the pups & Fern more. I’ve taken more time to pack my meals and snacks for work, so I don’t go to the store to get unhealthy things.
I’ll be implementing an exercise routine this coming week & will be continuing to alter my daily routine. Little changes slowly over time work far better for me than drastic changes all at once.
I appreciate all of your kind words, messages, & comments - I do read them all, but will be continuing to lack in responding still for a bit to continue to concentrate on getting better.
Missing this everyday!!
This is the kind of place I want to go to more than once! Don't you agree? 😎

Need to start sending film to the lab more often. Have over 30 rolls from the past 2 years sitting on a shelf waiting to be developed. Tomorrow the last 6 rolls from our Glacier/Teton/Yellowstone trip will be going out to @photovisionprints . The rest of the rolls are unlabeled and will be a complete surprise to see what’s on them when the time comes.
