So at this point, I’ve written about the battle plan to get into better shape and start racing again. I’m also tackling the mental/emotional side of the equation. In addition to the marriage counselor Kate and I have been going to, I’ve also started going to therapy on my own time. There are a couple of reasons for this, some of which will be apparent to my friends and family, others that won’t.
So I’ve been pretty heads-down and quiet lately on the social media — mostly just retweeting and sharing stuff on Facebook. There’s a reason for that, and I’m finally at a point where I can talk about it at-length and in detail. The reason I am doing this now is that Kate feels comfortable with me discussing it online and I feel that I’ve wrapped my head enough where I can have something meaningful to say about it.
For three weeks in late September and early October, Kate was part of an intense partial-hospitalization for treatment of pretty severe post-partum depression.
