Fatshion: Black Eyelet Dress
Hello friends! Happy three-day weekend! I hope you’re all having a nice relaxing and fun weekend. I’ve had a good weekend myself but I’ll get into that in a bit. First, let me say that this is one of my favorite outfits that I’ve worn lately and that’s saying a lot! I wore this little black dress to my goddaughter’s first communion. My mom teased me by saying it looked like I was going to a funeral but hey, a girl’s gotta wear black sometimes. Don’t you agree?
I found this gorgeous dress at H&M last month and was just waiting for the right time to wear it. The first communion was a nice ceremony and my goddaughter and her cousin both looked beautiful in their little white dresses and veils. I know it was a big day for both of them and I’m proud of them. I was feeling a little tired and depressed that day though so I left the after party a little early. That’s depression life for you – it doesn’t discriminate when you have big plans.
I’ve been doing ok other than that day though. Well, I’ve been resting a lot and sleeping a lot because my depression and my meds get the best of me most days. Luckily, my schedule now has most mornings free so I can sleep the day away. I am thinking of changing my medications though because I can’t sustain this lifestyle for very much longer. That also means I’ll have to find a new psychiatrist because mine is impossible to see lately. Wish me luck finding a new one!
How do you manage your depression if you have it? I feel like mine has affected my life big time and derailing some things. I wrote this post awhile ago about depression and some of it is hitting me hard. Like I mentioned, I’m having a hard time getting out of bed most days and cancelling some plans here and there. Plus I quit my job and dropped one of my classes because of it. Those are some fairly large impacts. I’m trying to move through it while being as compassionate as possible but like I said, I can’t sustain this for very much longer. Please keep me in your thoughts that I can get out of this and get my medication situation fixed. My life kinda depends on it.
In better news, I had a really nice date with one of my partners the other day. She’s a budding photographer and she took these really great photos of me. I’ll share them in my next post. We also went out last week and she took photos of me then too. It’s fun having someone who wants to practice photography because it means I don’t have to set up my tripod and take my own photos all the time. Not that I mind. It’s fun to take outfit photos but it’s also fun to have someone else take photos and direct me sometimes. I’m into it.
