I want to thank all my SP friends for all your positive thoughts and prayers. This has been a real difficult couple of weeks for me.
For those of you that don't already know. I was very sick with UC for a couple months. Then when I was starting to feel better I had to have a biopsy done on my breast. I was very stressed before and after the test. Fortunately I found out this week that I am OK. Part of the stress during this time was realizing that I don't have the support system that I use to have.
I changed jobs last May. I had been at the other job for 10 years but got burnt out. I had a lot of good friends there. I saw them on a daily basis and we were there for each other. We got together often when I left. With the awful winter we had none of us have gotten together for a couple months now.
I am not happy at my current job. I enjoy the job itself and what I do there. But the hours are awful. I have only made a couple friends there. Everyone there is very clicky. Not something I am interested in.
I could have gone back to my old job and probably still could, they are always hiring. but I don't want to do that. I read a quote once I think it was M. Angelo. If you don't like the path behind you or the path in front of you then get off the path
I went to WW today. I hadnít been in three weeks due to appointments and working so much. I was pleased. Even though I was eating like crazy while I was so stressed I was only up a pound. Another accomplishment through all this. I havenít smoked for 13 weeks now.
I think that Iíve finally figured out the healthy lifestyle for me. Hopefully with all of you I will be able to stay with it for the rest of my life. Now if I could just find the right path for me ......
