Life Goes On

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Well it's been a while since I wrote a blog entry...
Eating and exercise has been up and down. I walk five days a week for about an hour to an hour and 20 mins. Not all at once though as I don't have time for that most days. I walk a half hour in the morning, a half hour in the afternoon and about 20 min after dinner. I was going to the gym yet that is where I mean the exercise is up and down. With everything going on and my busy schedule it is hard finding time to get the gym. With the warmer weather coming I am hoping to be able to get there more often and get back into some classes. Time permitting that is. There have been so many changes in my life since my ex left the girls and I and every day holds new challenges for us. Some times I feel like I am getting control of things and my life and I start to feel good about the steps I have taken both with my health and just life in general, and then the ex comes a long with all his mind games, he has a way of making me feel like crap! Not to metion things with my home and everything regarding that are really up in the air right now. All that is pretty stressfull to say the least so often my eating is not where it should be. some days I don't eat much at all or I eat all the wrong things. I do try to pay attention most days to what I put in my mouth but it is not consistant enough, so really have not lost any more weight. I can maintane it and fluctuate up and down within 5 pounds but don't seem to be able to go anywhere from there. I really hope I can get my weight moving down again. I worry a lot about many things and it does not help with the weight situation. It seems so much harder to keep my mind on me right now with so much of my life up in the air. I just pray for the day when I can feel secure in my home and my girls won't have to worry about the future every day. Maybe then,,,, who knows I just might be able to take more time for me! As for now I am just trying to keep my head above water. I'm walking because I know I can fit that in and I am trying to get a better hold on the eating thing. Hoping to do better at getting myself on track with the whole thing because the eating and exercise go hand in hand. yet with life as it is right now it is difficult.....

It got worse

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Well hubby walked out on me and the girls... All I can say is I am very lost and broken and feeling like a failure. My youngest daughter and I over heard him on the phone with another women. (he thought we were out of the house). It was awful. I am just really torn apart and most days feel like I can hardly breathe or stand. The tears just keep coming on and and off and I am overwhelmed and not even sure how I am going to get through financially and emotionally. I am trying to be strong for my girls, but it is difficult. I know they need me and I will do my very best to shield them from my brokeness. yes they do see my crying. Maybe one day those tears will go away. I wish I could control the tears. Some say it gets easier, I really don't see anything getting easier, only harder...... I really have no clue how some women stay so strong.

    My Dear Sunshine,
I can't begin to tell you how deep my understanding and feelings go for you right now.

Honey, I have been there too. Be strong. (Thats why I changed my name to Ka- Taki-tomotsin, which means be strong in blackfoot). I went thru it at about the same age as you. Im nearly 70 now...and the best things I can say to you, are get help from a really good counselor. I had one for $5.00 per session thru Family Services. It really helped. It was so hard on my girls too, but they made it through and two of the three are much stonger from what they learned by it.

Sunshine I really like what Crickett wrote. I would like to add to it by saying, "AND THIS TO WILL PASS" and "GOD NEVER GIVES US MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE". You are a strong woman, this is not your fault I am willing to say. Men go thru menopause just like women, and there lives at 40ish are not very secure sometimes. Especially with him loosing his job. STAY STRONG! NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE YOUR HAPPINESS AWAY. HOW YOU FEEL IS UP TO YOU. IF YOU HAVE TO, GET MAD!

All my love and prayers are with you. Please feel free to email me anythime. I am here for you.

"I think you’re wonderful. I think you’re marvelous.
I think you’re beautiful, and magical and filled with curiosity…. and dreams."
Best of luck for the challenging road ahead. Write anytime if you need to vent,

    You will survive this , my daughter went through the same thing, she had been married less than 2 years with a 1 year old baby, he left for another woman, she was devastated, but she got through it, she had myself and her father for support, she was not working, and had only ever worked part time, he wanted her to be home, then he wanted her to have a baby,when she was about 4 months pregnant he telephoned her to say he did not love her anymore, and he left 2 times before the final break-up. then he left for good, she was 21 years old. Now, she owns her own hair salon, is engaged to be married and my grandson is just the bees knees, I know you have been married longer, but you will survive, my heart goes out to you, talk to someone, parents, close friend, church, crying is allowed it bathes your heart and soul. Take care of yourself and your girls. Things will get better. emoticon

    Hi, praying for you. My friend went through the same thing thirteen years ago. She found a wonderful Christian Lawyer. It took her many years, some on disability, to get herself together and now she has a good job and her girls are fine. Do get a lawyer. Your husband is not thinking straight and you want to know, if there is a payout that you will have you and your children looked after. Legally payments can be taken right from his paycheck. I think you're right in that this is the easy way for him... no responsibilities. Keep a journal of what he is doing. If there is hope for the two of you Sue Johnson is an incredible couplestherapist and has written several books. However it only works if both people want to try and make it work. In the meantime breath. Drink water. Drink green tea. Walk. Find a good friend to hug you. Cry all you need to. I'm sure you have had some really good years. Those are yours. No one can take them from you. The future is unknown but can never happen unless we get through today.

  I am sorry to hear that you are going through this. I went through a divorce with two children in the last 2 years. It is very hard and emotionally draining. The good news is that is does get better just take it one day at a time. One way I was able to keep it together for my children was to journal after they went to bed or before they awoke. I would write whatever I felt and would release all of the emotion I had restrained throughout the day. I have one other bit of advice...keep reassuring the kids that it is not about them that it is about you and your husband and please try to keep the heated conversations away from them. Those children are a little piece of both of you and even though they may be angry with one or both of you now, they still love you both and need the love and support you both offer. Most of all...respect yourself and find that inner strength...you have it in you. You will get through this...one day at a time.

    I'm very sorry. I went through something similar and lets just say well....I took the time I needed to put myself back together. Everyday 10 minutes of silence. In a room or favorite part of my house. I would sit there and practice my breathing. Making sure that I breathed in and out. Because after all I was going through I would forget to breath sometimes or at least that's what it felt like. The tears came and went whenever they wanted to and the memories well were always there. Although it occurred to me one day, if I allow myself to be nothing and if I honestly believed I was nothing than that's what I was. Therefore my advice to you is to remember that you are someone worth loving, you are a Mom with the biggest heart. You are someone who must take time to yourself until this cloud moves over. Stretch and workout as you would normally, it will help with the stress. Keep an open mind and remember God loves you! emoticon

Can it get any worse.....

Monday, December 28, 2009

Well on top of all that has been going on in my life, yet another is tearing me down. Never thought I would be here and have prayed numerous prayers about it. Have been married almost 17 years, together with my hubby 22 and half years and now he has said he is not happy. We have had problems in the past (that came out of the blue really) and it was the same thing. Like walking into a door that you did not know was there. He said he was leaving then.. I thought we worked things out and everything seemed really good. Yet once again I am the stupid one. Now after hearing of his plant closing in 2011 he just kinda went strange from then. Hardly talking to me and when he was it was treating me badly, snapping at me and commenting rudely etc. and then saying he is not happy and seems he is making plans to leave me and my two girls. I am devastated, and heart broken and some days don't feel I even have the energy to stand. My eyes are so swollen today from crying most of the day yesterday. My life will never be the same if he leaves, more importantly my girls lives will never be the same. I grew up with my father leaving when I was 10 and never ever wanted my kids to be faced with this and have to go through what I did! Now it seem I can't do much to stop it! I'm so broken inside and I don't understand any of it ! Why is life so cruel?! Why every time I turn around is another person walking out on their spouse?! What is happening to this world?!! I don't know what my girls and I will do or how we will get on with out him. Jobs are few and far between and my experience is even less than that. I grew up working with kids in day cares when you were allowed to have one teacher in the room who was not ECE and one that was. I did not have my ECE but knew more than most that did since I had been in day cares since I was 16. Now a days both teachers have to be ECE qualified, and now that I am 40 I really don't think working with kids is for me, and sadly I don't really know much else, and frankly I am terrified of the thought of anything else. It's silly really, but it goes back to my childhood. Anyway, I don't drive either so that makes things even more difficult. Enough on that though. Thing is I never thought I would be here. My hubby always said that I would never be faced with that. He knew what I went through as a child and he said he would never put me nor any child through that, and now here he is not giving a crap and only into self gratification and what is good for him. He is thinking only of him, his happiness as a single man with no responsibilities, no one to be accountable to, no kids in the house when he comes home so he can just do what he wants and not have fatherly responsibilities. He wants to play his online poker and do his own stuff. My girls wonder why his happiness is more important than there's. They don't understand any of it either because as my daughter says, "mommy you guys hardly ever argue" We didn't anyway, but now with how he treats me it is like he is trying to create arguments just so he can say we don't get along. I guess that way in his head if he believes it or creates it he feels better running off on us. It seems he is working harder at making our marriage bad than he is at making it good.. Life sucks and if he leaves I don't ever see it being better.. No after that my life is basically ruined. For some with big paying jobs and such maybe life does not have much of an adjustment after a spouse abandons everyone, but that is not the case here. I don't have a good paying job, nor do I have that good education. My hubby knew that before we got married and he also knew how important it was for me to be a stay at home mom while my kids were in public school at least. (because of how I grew up I wanted to be there for my kids to help ensure they would do well in school and have confidence in themselves). Both my girls get VERY good grades and are confident girls, but I can see this ripping all that away and changing them. Especially for my youngest who is only 11. It's awful and I feel very broken. I am trying to remain strong, but that is easier said then done. Holding myself together some days feels impossible. This time of year it's even harder. Some people are so selfish! Running out on people seems to be the thing to do now a days. No wonder everything is so screwed up. And this is coming from the girl who used to be a very positive person no matter what happened in life. That is another things that tears me apart. All this has changed me so much and trusting anyone is very difficult. I used to trust almost everyone... *sighs* Seems now a days it's normal to have more than have the population single parents.. I just don't know how I will do it, I guess for some it is easy, or easier anyway.. For me, well I don't see anything easy about it. Especially with hubby losing his good job and finding something for that good of pay any more is difficult. He gets a buy out but once they take off taxes it won't be much, and then after getting that even if he pays off bills, then now we have no money coming in and he can't collect unemployment, so of course he will need something. The jobs out there know don't pay much so if he leaves half of not much is pretty much nothing to live off of... I see him being the type of person to find something under that table so he has money for him, but then we suffer even more, and as selfish as he has been I don't see him caring all that much. When I say selfish I mean it. He never wants to leave his online poker games to take the girls any where, everything is a bother for him when it comes to doing something other than for himself, and that I am not exaggerating about in the least......... Anyway....
All I have is prayer and I have been doing a ton of that lately.......
Blessings to all, and I pray that your lives are joyful and happy and that you are not being faced with anything such as this........

    So sorry to hear your story. It's not easy for anyone. But somehow we get through it.

If you think he's not "just venting" and there is a real possibility of him leaving, please think about contacting an attorney to protect your rights, especially before he receives a buyout from his employer. Once the money is gone, there's nothing to claim your half of. You also need to establish his wages while he's making better money. If he thinks he's just walking away with no responsibility, he's got a rude awakening coming. He'll find that paying out child support doesn't leave much money for gambling or a new single life.

That being said, it sounds like most of his problems may be stemming from his online-gambling addiction. He needs help. It's affecting his whole disposition, and he's about to throw away everything good in his life. Try to talk to him about it, or get someone else to talk to him... family member, friend, anybody.

You're in my prayers.

Stressed to no end..

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I have not had much time for me lately nor sparks, so just want to say sorry to all my groups for not being around much. I really miss interacting with everyone. And thanks to those of you who have send wonderful insperational posts to my page. Life has been stressful, With all my 11 year olds issues with asthma and other stuff with her throat and swelling and such that have been going on it has made things stressfull and worrysome for all of us. Even more so with the H1N1 going around. Then hubby gets the dreaded news that his Ford Plant is closing for sure come 2011. Then if all that was not enough stress, my oldest daughter, (14 yrs old) has been having reactions to certain fruits lately, (ie swelling in the lips and such to peaches, then apples). Had tests done and was told that she had Oral Allergy Syndrome and that she could still eat those fruits cooked. I guess due to her allergies to Birch tree's, rageweed, Maple tree's and certain grasses, that some of these pollens in the fruits are the same as what is in the tree's or grasses. Yet that is not the worst of it, then she had a reaction to eating her halloween candy. (some reeses pieces and some M&M's). We went back to the allergist and they tested her for various nut allergies. She swelled up to peanuts, brazil nuts, Pistachio nuts, cashews, & hazel nuts!!! I am so upset and stressed and so is she and the rest of the family. We love nuts and many, many nut products and we have so many in the house. My daughter has eaten all of them many times, but is now developing an allergy! It's crazy, but I guess it happens later on in life either teenage years or adult hood sometimes to people who have the certain seasonal allergies she has. She now has an Epipen and needs to go for more testing. (Blood work this time) it is more accurate then the prick test she had. I am praying that things will come back saying negative and that the skin test was just a mistake. We will have to change so much in what and how we all eat. I buy healthy breads that contain certain tree nuts, I buy nuts for me and my eating right . So, SO many products contain peanuts/tree nuts. More than I thought even. Things like dried soups that I have in the house, bagels that we have among many other products. It is such a serous allergy as those of you who know someone who has it or have it yourself may know... My daughter has very sensative skin so really praying that the test was just wrong. Mind you the reaction she had to the candy,,,,,,,, well I don't know, but I'm just going to pray. Many healthy foods contain or are made in places where they come in contact with nuts, it changes so much for all of us. My daughter loves things with nuts! It will be hard for her. I'm worried for my daughter, who this is all new to, I am worried who she may come in contact with that may be eating something with nuts.. I am not sleeping well and I am stressed to no end. Life just is not fair sometimes.

    Oh My Goodness,

You really must be stressed. I know I would be. I have developed a lot of allergies as I have aged, but not like your poor daughter. I will keep her and your family in my prayers. I just wish I could find a magic way to take away this burden she carries.

I have allergies to soap, metals, sulfa, citris fruits which I can eat but not touch...and my list goes on and on. Perfumes make me very nauseated.

Nuts are really drastic. Have you talked to the Dr. about shots, to help. All I can say is my love and prayers are with you. I wish I could give you some sunshine like you give all of us. Just take care of yourself.

Been having a lot of issues with my daughters health. She has asthma quite bad, but on top of that I think she has tonsillitis. We have had problems with her tonsils off and on for a few years now. Last year her tonsils and glands were swollen for weeks at a time and her throat very sore often. Not to mention lots of throat infections and colds as well as problems with her sinuses filling up so much that her face was puffy. Nothing much has been done about it yet by doctors but it is causing a lot health issues. This time around same thing but even more, ie bad headaches, swollen glands and sinuses, swollen tonsils of course which make her feel like she can't breathe. She sometimes confuses that feeling with asthma. It has been difficult because she is an outgoing child and when she is ill from her tonsils she does not want to go anywhere. She says the feelings she feels make her nervous because she feels her face and neck swelling up, it scares her. Her headaches get real bad and before they come on she see's a white line in front of her eyes. It is awful that she has to go through this and it has been weeks now with the symptoms. We have been to emerge a few times. Again just last week. The one doctor at emerge did say he believes she needs her tonsils out. He said to make an appointment with our doctor who then can set up an appointment with an ear, nose and throat specialist. She has been to one of these before. I am just hoping this time someone will listen! Maybe the recommendation of the doctor at emerg will help as he said all her symptoms are classic tonsillitis symptoms. Anyway that is what has been going on here the past weeks. It has been stressful to say the least because she does not want to be alone. She is missing out on playing with her friends because she feels so crappy. We have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning early. I don't expect much from that other then to set up an appointment with the specialist. Please pray that this gets figured out soon and that something can be done to help my daughter. I know this is not the forum for the prayer request but I thought I would put it with this letter.
Thanks and Blessings.

    Thank you again so much EVERYONE for your prayers concerning my daughter! We have seen another ENT specialist and as if right now he wants to wait and see her at her worst. Jeepers.. Anyway the good news is right now she is feeling much better. I am praying that she doesn't go through this again. It is difficult to know really. I mean since doctors haven't really gotten to the bottom of it as she is always getting better by the time we get into see the ENT, Which this time was over a month and half before we could get in to see him. I am very thankful she is feeling better and I am putting in Gods hands. I believe there is strength in prayer so I am comforted by all the wonderful support and prayers from everyone on here.
Thanks again!!

    My thoughts and prayers are being sent your way. It is so odd how medicine has changed. In the fiftys and sixtys doctors were always taking out tonsils. I was always sick because of them and best thing that ever happen when they were gone. Maybe you need to check out all the docs in the area that will remove them. Just a thought.
Thanks for being my buddy.

My Dear BudgieSunshine & Daughter,

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. I went through a similar experience with my middle daughter. It is down right frightening. She finally had her tonsils out and I wish they had taken her adnoids too, but they didn't. At 42 she is still having some problems. When she was 13 I had to rush her to the E.R. as she was turning blue. Scared me to death.

I hope your daughter gets help really soon. My prayers are with both of you, and I will be thinking of her each day.

Luv & Hugs to both of you.

Maggie

Our doctor didn't say much, of course I knew he would not. He did what I expected and wanted him to do. Refered us to the specialist. So now waiting for the call to know when the appointment is with the ear/nose and throat doctor and then we will go from there. Hope we get the appointment soon. This has been so hard on her and it truly breaks my heart and puts my nerves on end as well.
Again
From the bottom of my heart,
Thank you all for your prayers!!!

    Will pray she gets the medical attention she needs. And I say there is no place where prayer should be not asked for!

For the Lord did not give us the spirit of fear..but, one of power, love and a sound mind!

    Tess and I are sending prayers your way. Hope you daughter will be able to have her tonsils removed. When I was a child my were aweful and was always sick and lost some hearing because of it. Had to be in the hospital twice and after got them remove it was better. Wish the allergies would have went away.
Keep the faith.

    This a great place to ask for prayers...we all need that sometimes. I'll be praying for her and hope she is feeling better soon. Just wondering if any doctor ever checked for any other cause for the headaches and white lines? Sounds like it could be something besides ENT symptoms causing that. I'm not a doctor by any means, but wonder if they should do a scan of her head and see if there is something else going on. Nobody that young should have to go through this much.

  This is absolutely the forum for prayer . . . I would also like to say that in my 51 years of life . . . I have learned at least one thing . . . that you have to be your own champion - advocate when it comes to medical issues. Take your daughter to an ear/nose/and throat specialist . . . try to get a referral . . . and let him or her guide you through your options as to what should be done. If her tonsils need to come out . . . be persistent . . . don't take no for an answer! You can do this!
