Better but not

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Well things are getting easier to deal with. I have decided to take a few weeks off from watching my niece and nephew so that I can get things done around the house. I think it will help with my stress levels a little too. We will see.

Surviving one day at a time.

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

So lately it seems to be just one day at a time that I feel like I am going. I can't worry about tomorrow I need to worry about today. Today is hard enough. I hate that I feel this way but I also know that for right now with everything going on it is best to look at things this way.

It's not a bad thing just a way of dealing with the stresses of my current situations. My son who has ADHD is driving me absolutely up the wall half the time. My daughter is starting to go through puberty....she hasn't yet but is darn close. My husband is in PA while the kids and I are in NY. I am going to school full time...my choice I know. Selling NY house...but need to get it ready to show first. Buying PA home but need to sell NY house first. Just a lot going on. I know I know there could be more going on. We could have no income at all. Course that would mean my husband would be here with me....but either way you throw the dice life is stressful right now. And I just don't know how to handle it. Oh did I forget to mention that I watch my niece and nephew twice a week too? I need to learn how to deal better. I have stopped trying to loose weight and am back to drinking soda again. I can't seem to win.

But I will say that there is a light at the end of the tunnel I just have to keep going so I can see it.

    emoticon emoticon One day at a time is all you can do. And letting go of what you can't control. If you need your soda, then drink it. Sit down for five minutes, locking the bathroom door or parking the kids in front of the TV if you have to, and sip and savor it. Pour it into a real glass with ice, straw, and a fruit wedge. Take a deep breath and imagine you're on vacation someplace tropical. Then get back to life, and the teens, and the house sale, and the niece and nephew. We're here, cheering you on, every step you take forward.

    We all have to find ways to deal with the problems of life, and if you have to do it one day at a time, don't sweat it. Sometimes it is easier that way, and you can get more accomplished that way. I know this sounds like I didn't listen, but make sure you try and make"my time" in those busy days. In order to maintain your sanity. You have a lot on your plate1

I hate colds

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

I have to say I don't know how single Mothers do it. Although I am far from single with hubby in PA all week I feel like a single Mom during that time. Yesterday I started to get a whopper of a cold. I was very dizzy and just totally out of it. It was so bad that my ADHD son never finished his home work and my 11 year old daughter was trying to take over my job as Mom. Not that she isn't old enough to take charge or her 7 year old brother and all but she was worried about me. I just don't know how others do it.

I am better today, not dizzy at all but it is a full blown cold now. And my son is driving me bonkers.

Trying to deal

Saturday, February 22, 2014

I want to stay positive but am finding very hard to do. My son who was diagnosed with ADHD back in December is doing well for the most part. But dealing with my depression as well as him is starting to wear me down. Add to that last weekend my husband officially move to PA to start his new job. He came home this weekend but it's like he forgot how to deal with our son. And of course that is making things a bit harder on me cause I just want to yell at him and tell him to be patient. But not sure that would be the best course of action of any of us.

I feel so out of it...course with hubby gone that means I am not sleeping so that too could be a part of my problem.

    I'm so sorry to hear that you are going through a rough time. Just remember to take it all one day, or even one moment at a time.
Stay strong! emoticon

Depressed

Monday, February 17, 2014

Well hubby has moved to PA....he is renting a room until the kids and I can sell this house and move down there with him. This is just as we planned when he got this new job. He starts tomorrow. But like while we were in the Navy when ever he is away I don't sleep well. Usually this only last for a week or two but still that makes things hard. And right now it is making me more depressed. I know I know I have a lot going for me...but I have a lot going on too. I am in college...that's a good thing. My 7yr old son was diagnosed with ADHD...although not positive this too is a good thing cause now he is on medication. My 11yr old daughter is just fine so nothing to talk about there. But we have this move coming up and more changes. And well right now I am feeling really depressed. I am not sleeping well and finding it hard to get going in the morning...and keep going. I stopped loosing weight. I started soda again..not all the time like before but enough that it could be effecting my lack of weight loss.

I am just feeling really low right now and the move is making it worse. I have family here and no one where we are moving too and I need support. My family supports me but they also don't really get the depression thing as much as I would like....well except for my Mother. I really wish that I had someone I could talk to like my therapist.....

Ok done venting.

  I don't know if it's possible for you, but you might consider a few extra visits with your therapist just to get you through this change. I would also ask them to find you someone you can meet with as soon as you move. Even if it's quite a distance, they should have some contacts and should be able to find someone reliable for you. That way you're set as soon as you get there. I don't know if you're a church-goer, but if so, you could also get hooked up with someone at your new church, too. I know when we moved overseas, it was marvelous to have some support people like that lined up already. It made it feel like we weren't alone and on our own so much.

I hope you can find your way through the extra depression. Hang in there!

  emoticon you are feeling sad as you move through this life-altering transition. you have so much on your plate, and you are handling so much by yourself. i think talking to a therapist you trust is a super idea. i wish you the strength to take care of yourself, to refrain from reverting to habits that do not support you. it may be helpful not to focus on weight loss right now, but to make little, positive choices throughout your day for which you can acknowledge yourself and that bring you a ray of light and hope. may you tend your garden with attention and mindfulness--it is hard work up front, but a lot easier than trying to rid your garden of deeply rooted weeds later on. i would suggest a goal of maintaining your current weight, which is challenging enough. soon you will be reunited with your husband and you will begin a new, exciting chapter in your life. may you embrace the adventure and give yourself credit for your courage.
