Coping Skills

Saturday, January 26, 2013

emoticon Day 24 Binge Free and Day 4 Prozac

This week has been a VERY emotional week. I am so proud of myself for using healthy coping skills when feeling: Sad, Hurt, Angry, Frustrated, Fearful, Bored, Tired, Etc...

Deep Breathing w/ eyes closed...
Listen to Music
Go for a drive
Sit at the library
Sit in basement room
Stretch / Light hand weights
Text Friends
Email Friends
Call Friends
Spark-People Blogs / Message Boards
Walk / Walk on treadmill with music
Lay Down and Rest
Read Scriptures / 12 Steps
Think of Happy-Quote
Repeat this too will pass
Strong and Healthy Woman
Thankful For...
Daily Miracles
Drink Water
Chew Gum
Pray, Pray, Pray, Pray... Just Listen as I pray... Just say "Dear Heavenly Father"
Like the essential Oils
Think I like the Prozac
If I am really hungry... baby carrots
Listen to Whitney and Ben
JUST BE... Cry

These have helped me out a lot this week. Friends and Family support are going to get me through this difficult time. And of course Heavenly Father and his endless love and forgiveness.

I know that it is COLD but the fresh air is quite nice, especially today. The air outside it getting better and it looks quite nice outside right now.

emoticon Yes, today is a brand-new-day. I feel so much better this morning, and I am ready to reflect on yesterday.

THANK you so much to EVERYONE who made comments on my blog. I truly FELT your love, support, and prayers. Having people cheering for me was so helpful.

I woke up yesterday hungry. I ate a piece of bread about 2:30 A.M. (45 calories) I think the bread hurt my stomach. I woke up with a sharp pain in my stomach. I don't usually need to eat much before my morning run, but I was starving. So, I ate a granola bar (190 calories). I usually eat Sport Beans or my Hammer-Sustained mix both 100 calories. So I was ok with the extra 90.

I had a nice run. ***Started thinking about a trip to Disneyland with my family and sister this summer and was ANGRY. I don't want to go, mostly because of my issues with my sister. I won't go into too many details, but I was angry. I drank my morning shake (added a little less yogurt), and I took my first Prozac Pill (Resentful about this), and I was off to work.

Work was ok. I was still hungry and thinking about food. I ate my snack (granola bar) and made it to lunch ok. This is when the anxiety REALLY started. I tried to call my mom (LOVE her, but I need to wait until after school), and I talked to my dad. I was still angry about the morning issue. It just triggered me more.

I finished off my school day. Ate my granola bar snack #2. Right after school, I needed support. My #1 person to text who I know can handle me and my sadness is out of town. I was so happy for her. She was giving her first presentation. There was NO way I was going to ruin her day. I decided to text my husband. "I'm having a bad day... just mood and have eaten 5 hard candies, a possible trigger. I'm not freaking out yet but thinking about food and sad... wish Rachael was here but she's out of town. Don't know who to talk to just sad."

So... I stayed at school longer than usual. Meditated (tried) read and answered a few Spark-Mail (which I love), and was going to go to an OA meeting, Instead I ending up chatting with my sister-in-law. I love her honesty, everyone's honesty. But everyone keeps reminding me it IS going to be hard. That this is a long, tough road. BLAH!!! LoL....

I missed my 5:30 OA meeting and came home. I ate my normal dinner and had a discussion with husband. I felt so badly, I was short-tempered and sad with him. I know he tries his best to understand, but I just think it hurts him and frustrates him too. They aren't counselors LOL or probably know too much about ED's.

Anyway... here's what saved me. I put on the "happy" face and went to my daughter's church activity. It went fine. She was adorable. LOVE her to pieces.

I came home and was obsessing about food. I was still kind of hungry too. I ate carrots with a little dip and 3 pieces of (45 calorie) bread. Then, my daughter came home... She was what I needed. She sat on my bed with me and just chatted. We just let things be and talked and actually watched Super-Nanny (the American one I hadn't seen before). She must have just let me fall asleep after about 30-40 minutes. I didn't wake up until much later... 11:40 and husband was coming to bed, and I turned off the t.v. and went right back to sleep.

I've got to go run now... I will reflect on my triggers and am so happy I made it through yesterday. I am hoping today is a much, much better day. NO anxiety, sadness, resentment, LOL... ok maybe a little but God help me deal with them better.

Have a great day everyone.

    Netty, every tough day that you make it through successfully makes the next tough day easier. Yesterday you learned that you can make it through feelings of anger and sadness without bingeing (even if it's hard) and that you CAN fake it till you make it. A smile on the outside sometimes makes you smile on the inside. You also learned to take strength from your family, even if they are not the most appropriate people to help you with your ED issues. I say that yesterday was a COMPLETE SUCCESS!

    Aahh, husbands. :) I love mine to pieces but I'm sorry, there are just things our women friends can provide that I'm not sure if they ever will be able to. I'm not sure if the experience is the same for you, but sometimes opening up to him just adds to my anxiety, when I KNOW he's just not the right person for me to be talking to. If only they would know we sometimes just need someone to listen and not try to fix things for us.

Your comments about your daughter put a smile on my face because I can completely relate. My daughter, at 16, is one of the wisest people I know and such a calming force for me. We are two very lucky moms. emoticon

I think sometimes we tend to get caught up in that life is supposed to be perfect every day- we're supposed to be happy all the time, everything is supposed to go our way. Obviously, that's not the case, but thinking that often adds to already stressful situations. Perhaps if we can take a step back and observe, "Oh, this is a crappy day. I get it. And not all days will be crappy, so I have to let this one run its course and it too will change." What really brought this to light for me is my marriage. I've been happily married 20 years. Some days/weeks/months Steve and I are totally in sync, happy, etc. Others, yeah, not so much. But everything cycles out- you just have to let the bad times run their course and not get too caught up in them and make them mean something. Cause sometimes they mean NOTHING. It's just life.

Sorry- I'm wordy. Can you tell? :)

You are making progress even though you don't see it. You got through a very tough day relatively unscathed. Make sure you eat with those meds as they will upset your stomach if you don't.

As for you sister, obviously a hot button and perhaps a trip to Disney is not in the cards for you but wait until you get settled in the therapy etc say a couple of months and then make a decision when you have more strength.

Hard day...

I ate 5 hard candies (no big deal really) I added them to my nutrition tracker.

Just feel sad... Don't want to spin back into total anxiety / craziness that I was in 2 weeks ago. Uggg...

But.... I hope you all had a great day!!!

And 5 candies is not that bad at all! I have to indulge in small low calorie treats every now and then or I end up throwing my "lifestyle change" right out the window and going to the nearest gas station and loading up on king size Reese's. You tracked it and that is what matters.

Don't stress about the hard candies... 5 is not a big deal and if it's bothering you, that's a good thing... It would be more worrisome if you were NOT bothered. Now you have the motivation / incentive / introspection to be "present" and to stop before things get out of control.

I have been on Zoloft for 15 years and trust me without it I would be in OCD hell. The first 34 years of my life I didn't have this medication and it was like waiting for the other shoe to drop....You have to give the meds that you are on 3 weeks but within 10 days you will probably notice a difference....what the drugs do is bring calm in to a chaotic brain and gets those neurons and synapses firing in the right direction.

I too was very ashamed to be "different" to take a pill that would change my entire life....I absolutely have to eat when I take my meds, I haven't had a drink in about 15 years, gained about 10 lbs from the meds and they slowed my metabolism BUT if two little pills a day can bring me the peace and calm I have, I will take the pills without question.

As for anyone else, well I really don't give a flying squirrel f**k what they think about the meds as they have not walked a day in my shoes. Dealing with a mental health issue is not easy because people think your crazy.....well so tell me something I don't know.

One foot in front of the other, one second at a time. You only need to think about the here and now not tomorrow or the day after.

Hugs ya nutbar

    I agree with SEEINGCLEARLY53 - take them for 2 weeks and see how you do - It takes that long to build up in your system. I took prozac for many years and it worked great for me. I switched about 8 years ago when I went on night shift because the prozac was really messing with my sleep cycle so I tried a few other things with really bad side effects before I found one that worked for me - now I take Zoloft and it is great. I don't feel like it changes my personality at all but just evens out my moods so I'm not all over the place.
If you don't think its for you or you start experiencing bad side effects then talk to your doctor and try something different. You may have to try a few different ones before you find one that works with your body chemistry. It doesn't mean you are crazy - chemical imbalance can make you feel that way but once you have it corrected you can be back to being Nutty Nettie! Hope it helps you - spark cheers!

    You are taking steps to care for yourself and face your fears. I had an experience one time many years ago. I imagined myself holding the most beautiful, precious, innocent newborn baby. All I felt was this immense love and sense of protection for this child. It's hard to explain, but there was a shift and that child I was holding became me. It hit me like a brick because in that moment I was able to see my own vulnerability and how I too needed to provide myself with that same uncompromising love I so freely give others. Love, cherish, protect and forgive that which is you Netty.

You obviously did not just up and decide you needed to take medication. You weighed the pros and cons and your doctor prescribed them to you. My sister takes antidepressants and once her doctor got her proper dose figured out she started doing great. She was hesitant too, but I am so glad she tried it. Thanks for sharing your story.

    hey, we love our Nutty Netty :)

you remind me so much of someone I work with... we are really good friends... maybe because we are both a little nutty :)

there is no shame in any of this, only some pre-conceived stigma based on assumptions by people who have never been there.

I get anxiety attacks from time to time. That happens because my fight or flight switch has been flipped so many times due to one crisis or another that my body seems to automatically go down that path now. my anxiety is a physical reaction, it is no different than an epileptic sensing that an attack is coming and takes steps to cope. i can sense it coming and need to take steps to cope.

hey, its ok..... if there is an imbalance, there is no difference between meds for that than there is meds for high blood sugar or a heart condition....

you are just a special and important to us as you ever were. hugs for our Netty...

    You are brave to take that step of taking medications even when you don't think you need them or want them. I started taking medication for depression after my husband suffered a brain aneurysm and i tried very hard to be "normal". I do not regret taking the first pill that I took because it helped me to become more able to handle things in my life instead of retreating and beating myself up. I love your attitude and I support you 100%. Remember to take care of you. I had a friend tell me one time that husbands come and go, children come and go, friends come and go and that the only person who would always be with me is ME and that I needed to put that person first.

Be prepared that it may not feel great until the right dose gets figured out.

I have been on Prozac in the past, I am currently on Celexa...

YOU ARE NOT CRAZY.....I know there is a stigma attached to 'meds' but think of it this way, if you were diabetic and needed insulin, you would take it and not feel badly about don't worry about taking meds.


remember that!!!

I go along for a time beautifully, eat healthy and then I binge. The only difference for me is that I don't purge, just gain the weight and then have to lose it again.
I know you are doing well for most of your days; I do hope that you will be able to overcome the bulemia with good counseling(good for you), great support and a willingness to change.
God Bless.
P.S. If I had read your whole blog it would have been helpful, duh. I only read the side comments where you were maintaining. So, now I've caught up and learned a lot about you. You are one special lady! Take care. emoticon

    your voice and personality is exactly how I imagined!! (which was always awesome in my head by the way)

glad to hear that therapist visit went well. It helps SO MUCH to get someone else's true and honest opinion when the are there to help you. What person doesn't have something they want to improve on?

and you have been such a HUGE inspiration to me since joining Sparkpeople. I love hearing from you.

I just want to hug the screen right now! emoticon especially the little shout out emoticon
