Feeling overwhelmed

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Remind me not to take my Wednesdays off anymore. It always messes up the rest of my week.

Well, I went to work and was a bit stressed. Then drama from there as I'm leaving. Then rushing to get to the stores to get cupcakes & gift for Emma's pre-school Christmas party tomorrow. Then rushing to wrap. Em';s hair to be braided before bedtime. Bills bills bills going through my head. It all made me want to start screaming when I got home. It left me feeling completely overwhelmed and like I was going to have another panic attack. I don't like that feeling at all.

Frustrated w/DH as I wish he would see where I need help & jump in. Granted, he can't be a mind reader but come on. He did put DD to bed so I guess that's a good thing.

We had our holiday meal at the hospital today. I made some good choices. I ran into a nurse I used to work with. She was telling me how she enjoys getting my inspirational emails and that I always seem to send them just when she needs them. We talked about my getting into a ministry. I want to help people in so many ways. I've got to get into a new line of work. My current job is just stressing me too much!

I realize this blog isn't really diet related. I really just needed to vent/unwind/let loose and get feedback from my Spark family. Thanks for listening to me!

    Health is more then just a diet.. It's also mental and spiritual. So your blog can be about anything that helps you feel healthier in all areas of your life.
I've had panic attacks for years and hate it when I feel one coming on...
Try to take care of yourself honey. You deserve some down time. emoticon

    You can make your blogs whatever you want to make it. You can write a blog just for you to journal your feelings of the day. You can use your blog as a history of your journey on Spark, both the ups and downs. Most of use gear it towards our diet but we all vent on it one time or another.

Kudos for making healthy choices at your holiday meal at the hospital. I really hope you explore the idea of a ministry. You certainly have a knack for it - I just love all of the newsletters you have written for our team. emoticon

    Blogging is for venting, sharing, and just being YOU. I would say that spark people has NOTHING to do with dieting. It's about changing our lives and learning to deal with our every day issues without overeating. If you can't talk about stress here, then where CAN you? I know that STRESS is absolutely one of the things that lead me to emotional overeating. VENT AWAY! We're here for you my dear. Love ya, Dawn emoticon

    Blogging/venting or thinking outloud is fine, I do it all the time. It helps us keep our sanity! And keep us mentally healthy while we get physically healthy! Good for you finding an old acquantaince that motivates you! Have a wonderful weekend! B

    Vent as much as you need to.....that is what blogs are for and they don't have to just be diet related. If work is stressing you out, that will envariably affect you and if
blogging about it helps then good. It probably saved you from
becoming even more stressed and overwhelmed feeling. Hoping tomorrow is a better day for you!

    Vent away! Goodness knows I do it in my blogs enough. When you're stressed, it can affect your diet and exercise, so it's all related. I'm feeling overwhelmed myself, so I certainly feel for you. Hang in there!
