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.

    emoticon I 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
