Just watched Heavy again... man I'd like to be on that show. It would be SO nice to be able to focus on myself for a change instead of being pulled in so many different directions. And this is the slow some of the year for me! UGH
Good news - I think that the cortizone injections are helping, my knee joints feel less painful.
Bad news - still having pain in other areas of my legs and the rest of my body
Overall although its been a crappy week due to some family medical issues - I think things are on the upswing for us. Shawn is back to work from his surgery, and I think I have started an about face with my weight gain. My thyroid pills were adjusted a few weeks ago, and I am starting to feel better from that.
Thankfully the weather has been nice for the most part, especially for february. I haven't gotten much done on my last few days off since we've been visiting the hospital. Going to try and get some stuff done tomorrow before the funeral.

Sometimes I really wonder how I keep my sanity. Right now I'm sitting in my messy bedroom, debating if I should really haul my butt out of bed or not. My sister has been having seizures that are keeping her from college. DH and I both have appointments tomorrow with doctors that might both say, OK it's time for surgery... DD had an ultrasound this AM because she might have to have her gallbladder out...ugh! OH and grandma could have a heart attack any day not, but the hospital decided to send her home anyways...geez - makes you really wonder about the state of our healthcare system when a woman works for 50+ years paying in to the system and then when she has medical issues she's sent home un less than 24 hours...UGH

#1 Well - so far my goals for this year aren't going too well. I had hoped to lose 1 lb per week this year, but instead I've gained 6. Well - at least I didn't GAIN a lb per week...LOL
I guess I feel like I'm at my wit's end. I've had medication changes, increased stress, the car accident, and 2 bouts of crud - all since the beginning of the year! UGH. I think I've just put my health on the back burner for now, which I know is counter productive - but I feel like I just can't focus on any more things.
#2 What to do... what to do...
Well, I'm going back to the basics. My first goal is to get in my water and fiber every day. This has always been crutial to weight loss for me. Next, I am going to start a strength training regimine to go along with my physical therapy because I have gotten quite lax in my ST lately. Thirdly, I am going to walk 3x per week - outside if possible. I have the SP calendar that I got right before the new year - I will track it on that and keep it in my kitchen where I can see it all the time.

I haven't been around much lately. So, I thought I'd leave a quick blog to let you all know I'm still alive, just lurking. Basically - my S.A.D. is finally getting the better of me - even with the big vit D supplement she has me taking each week. It does help, but the winter is getting to me. The sun has been out the last few days though, so that helps. I think the big problem is that I'm just overwhelmed by life. I have too many responsibilities and not enough down time, and dealing with ptsd istn't helping any.
Right now I feel like I'm just going through the motions and holding on by my fingernails. My best analogy - and only those of you who've been there will get it probably - is that I'm looking into (as I imagine it) hole, I know I'm losing my footing but not sure if I will be able to keep my balance. This car accident has had more far-reaching results into my psyche than even I expected.
It's about time for spring to finally get here before this frozen mush gets the better of me...ugh. Besides - with the house closed up and everything frozen over - I can't get anything done on the spiritual side of life either! Thank goodness I saw some grass greening up today! YAY!

Well, its been a week since the accident and life still isn't back to normal. We STILL don't have any definite word from the insurance company, I guess we will be sitting around for the weekend wondering now. DH has a 3 month plan to get his back all fixed up - 3x a week for now. I have PT on my arm 3x week (and we're sharing a car - ugh). My ankle and foot have been out of sorts since last week, so between my leg and my arm - most exercises are out of the question. I just wish I would heal already! UGH.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
