TBT: Farmer’s Market

Special thanks to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.

1. Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from a previous May and write a poem or a blog post.

From May to October is our town’s Saturday morning farm market. This photo was taken May, 2013.

As you can see, there’s fresh fruits and vegetables, Mennonites, baked goods, plants and arts and crafts, just to name a few. Oh coffee, can’t forget about coffee!

I haven’t been there for a long time because I’ve been depressed. I also get anxious at the thought of going outside.

That’s what anxiety and depression do, they can rob you of your life.

But this year, I may just make it. My therapist and I worked out schedule of sorts of two weeks. Most days I must go out and do something, but sometimes I get a day off and get to stay inside.

I also have this thing that I have to shower before I go out, but sometimes I lack the motivation. My therapist says I don’t have to shower every single day, it’s okay to sometimes not shower.

This would be a nice, romantic thing to do with Jacques on a Saturday morning.

I’m setting this as one of my goals to overcoming depression and anxiety and I will let you know if I make it!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

    Looks like a beautiful morning for a bountiful Farmer’s market. I hope you are able to make it out to one soon!

      Thanks, Abby, it really is something I would like to do this summer. The longer you stay inside the more you want to.

    Good for you! I also have to force myself to take a shower (old tub/shower combo is just not comfortable to get in and out of!) and to leave the house. I rarely leave the house unless it’s for a doctor’s appt. There are some really great farmers’ markets near us, so maybe I’ll make that a goal this summer as well 🙂

    • mamasick says:

      Maybe we should make it both our goals, Angie! Maybe then it would give us the motivation to get out that door and enjoy our farmers’ markets!

  3. Great goals. Two-thumbs up. I’ve had a couple anxiety issues I’ve had to work out myself. I have a fear of heights and a couple years ago I made myself go up the pull-down attic stairs to put bleach down the drain pipe for the A/C unit.
    (14 feet maybe?) I trembled all the way the first time,but since then I can go up there to that with moderate ease. Fortunately, the attic stair is heavy duty with hand rails.)

      Congratulations for getting over your fear of heights madamdreamweaver! Stepping out of our comfort zone is easier said than done.

    What a debilitating feeling. I’m sorry you have to struggle with depression and anxiety. It is such a beast to work through.
