Take A Step Back and Re-evalute Where You Are At

Monday, April 11, 2011

To those of you who have left me messages, posts, e-mails, etc, and have not heard back from me, I apologize to you. It was nothing personal against you or SparkPeople. It was all me.
I have been fighting a mental battle called stress. My hours at work have been decreasing since last November, but I still seemed to get the hours that I needed to make life move along. Recently hours have been cut more and I am currently looking for work elsewhere to make up for the lack. I am keeping my job because I spent too many years of my life devoted to being successful to let it just slip away plus the pay is good.
My mom had a seizure about a week ago. Out of the blue. She has an appointment with her family doctor today so I hope that he can put her on the right path to treatment. This is the second one just over a year so to have an answer as to why and a means of controlling it would be a great blessing to our family.
I decided to wallow in self-pity with the 'why me' mantra, but that has gone on for far too long. If I want another job and if I want to be here for my parents I need to welcome healthy eating and exercise back into my life. I am ready to be back

    I want to wish the very best in finding out what is causing your mothers seizures and hopefully they can be eliminate with them proper treatments. As far as the job stress, I totally feel you because I was out of work for almost 3 years and just recently started back with a brand new dental office and they just don't have the patients yet. I am not sure what the position will play into but I hope for only positive things to come. I just wish good luck in finding something with more stable hours, and stay positive and try and not let the stresses consume you.
