Frustrated and soooooo stressed out .

Friday, May 07, 2010

My son was about to be homeless again .. Praise God he found somewhere to move that will work with him ....but he lost his job 2 days ago.
I am soooo stressed out and that makes my fibro worse...
I eat constantly with out even realizing how much i am.
I think i need to go back to the doctor and get on depression meds... i went from taking anxiety meds once in a while once a month to taking it 2 -3 times a day.
i am back up to 320 lbs and i fell like a complete failure !!!
If it wasn't for God i can't imagine being here.
Please keep me in your prayers spark friends i feel so pressed on every side.

    emoticonI hope it helps to know that you aren't the only one going through this. You have prayed for me and my son many times. Now my nephew has come to stay with us. When he asked me if I would come and get him I instantly FELT ravenously hungry. I had just eaten so I knew the feeling wasn't real. satan has to creep in through one of our 5 senses. Don't let him use your compassion against you. Play music, chew gum or snack healthy to get throught it. I tried but I really don't think medicine is a good idea because of all the side effects.
emoticon Focus on God, His Word and other things that help you enjoy your life!!!

I will pray for us all but...
emoticon God is doing something behind the scenes; these are grown men who have to learn to hear and obey God for themselves.

P.S. Keep posting so we know how you're doing emoticon

    Adding you to my prayer book.

Dismiss thought thoughts of failure. You just need to work through a fast break again. Sometimes, when we are building something, we either have to take something off or scrap a part and start over.

Work through another fast break and build up on a series of successes. You and and will do this.

    Stress totally increases our pain levels and can really undo our dieting efforts. Try keeping some 100 calorie snacks around for when you are stressed and allow yourself 3 of those per day included din your calorie count...that will help. Try munching on carrots sticks-that helps me with stress because the crunch helps relieve my stress believe it or not! It sounds like you need to turn all your worries over to God and leave them at his feet and not internalize them...he is in control and will take care of everything.....His word promises us that!!!
As for depression, there are a lot of great medications out there and I recommend cymbalta which is one that is specefic for fibro patients. It can help with your pain level and depression both. Hang in there....You can do this weight loss thing!!!

    I will be keeping you in my prayers my friend. You are not a failure, but a wonderful child of God who is going through some things right now. Just like we all do from time to time. Keeping trusting in God and praying for your son. God is always with you and will never leave you!
Have a blessed and wonderful Mother's Day
In Jesus Name

first Let me appologize to all the people i left hanging and for being gone sooooo many months. I have fibromyalgia and I'm still working full time. It takes EVERYTHING in me just to make it through work. I had to resign from the prayer center. i ussually do not feel like doing anything when i get home except collapse in my chair and thank God for the grace to have made it through another day.
I'm sure it may sound dramatic but unless you have ever felt the fatigue and pain it causes ... you just can't imagine. I do facebook some from my blackberry. If you want to friend me just e mail me at

    I can totally relate...When I was working full time that was all that I and get though with the basic functions of life. Fibro tends to take over your life. Now that I am not working I am taking care of hubby and that is my full time job. Between that and the home and yard I am worn out. Fibro is NOT fun and seems to have a life of its own....OURS!!!

out of motivation !

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Well i have not been doing great for a while now.
I have been eating at night alot !
suprisingly i have been active enough that i have not put on extra weight lately ... in spite of my feeding frenzy's when i get out of work at midnight and go home and eat with hubby.... that has to be God's grace... I'm just frustrated for my lack of control and motivation to lose what i gained back... Hoping to get better !

    emoticon God knows all about it.
Find out how many calories your body frame can handle and subtract 1 or 200. Schedule eating (same time everyday) your body won't know what time it is and save 4 or 500 calories to enjoy with hubby when you get home!!!

If you are fit and you're burning lots of calories you may not need to cut back. Personally I had to because I was in pain trying to get out of a low chair and out of breath walking up 12 steps.

DO NOT FRET!!! It only makes matters worse. You can't go into the holidays listening to those feelings. emoticon

C'mon we can do this!!! emoticon emoticon

    Spark has an article that says eating at night is no problem and isn't bad for us, so when they say it's okay, don't tell yourself off because you are doing fine. I work til 9 one night and Sundays I hardly get any water, but can catch up later. Allow yourself some peace of mind. Love and emoticon

    I KNOW about the late night eating so well. Too well. This has been a challenge for me too. Don't be too hard on yourself. Some days are better than others. Stay strong.

    Wow, you're able to recognize a behavior that isn't helpful, you're moving enough to counteract that behavior's effect, that sounds successful to me! It's hard when you work shiftwork, and have to eat with husband off schedule. I understand, my DH works it sometimes as well.

Sounds like you're doing better than you give yourself credit for! By any chance, are you skipping meals at work? That can really set up a carb craving later. You might try a high protein snack at work, to curb some of the cravings. It's helping me some.
