gg, sometimes we get depressed when sucky things happen. This is a sucky thing - serious illness in your family, implications for your husband and kiddies now or down the road...

when i saw my T today we talked about being able to cope with crises and stressors. being depressed makes this stuff more difficult to deal with: We Haven't Got The Power, Cap'n! (thank you Scotty). when we are feeling better we can work on our skills. when we are in a downward dog position it helps to remember those skills, but it is also OK to feel badly about what is happening. we can't be happy shiny people all the time, that would be so totally weird.

so. you have good advice you have given yourself, though i tend to think that we generally don't treat ourselves with the tenderness we deserve. i think that allowing yourself to feel sad about bad news would help.

here is a tender cyber hug ((((gg))))
and a cup of tea.
