I did it again, I messed up our financial budget due to gambling. This time I feel such guilt that it is weighing me down. I messed up my Curves membership too, and am going to have to do this on my own.
So today I dragged myself out of bed and did a WW exercise video, and will do some walking later. I can do this, I can, and I will, bring myself out of this dispair, this black hole I dug.

  Jo Anne, get counseling for your gambling. You are not stupid. Gambling is a recognized addiction illness. You have so much to deal with on your own, if there is help available reach out for it.

You may feel guilty because your gambling has caused you and your family financial problems. It is good to recognize this but guilt just makes you more unhappy and more likely to slip again. Guilt solves no problems, so waste no more time with it. Every day is a new day, a new start.

    Listen, You are not stupid. You may have done something that you are not happy about, but we have all done something like that. If this is a chronic problem, get help. If you don't have a problem, but just overdid, try to figure out what triggered it so you can stop it before it happens again. Remember, you can choose your own goals and work towards them. It may be rough, but good things are worth fighting for and you deserve to take care of yourself.
