Honestly, I don't think that in itself it's either good or bad, it just is. It's a process and the ups and downs are part of that process.
I'm trying to learn not to question the process but just go with it. Not in the sense of not working hard, but more, not fighting the ups and downs so much.
Does that make sense?
I'm glad you're getting some moments of calm and respite and I'm glad your H is able to help you through the lows.
