i need help...

Saturday, December 29, 2012

today i had a bad day. theres so much stress in my life, i swear i think i am loosing my mind. my father had to have surgery and im sure itsa going to be weeks till hes fully healed. my port under my skin is bothering me real bad. it no longer lays flat now its sticking straight up and when i called the doc about it they want me to come in tomorow at 2 pm to get it removed. i am finding it hard to sleep my stress is just making it so difficult to function in life.
i still havent quite gotten back on track of healthy eating. i know i am endangering my body. if anything because of my stress level i have gained a couple of pounds. i know i am also fighting depression and i deal with it by becoming an emotional eater... any advice would be greatfully appreciated. i feel as if i am slipping further away from reality. i feel i am missing out on a lot of things in life. i spend my time either watching tv or on my computer. please tell me there is more to life than that ....

    You know.. you you can only control yourself and what happens.. i know its hard not to be stressed over your dad and all but you have to have faith that everything will be ok.. the thing at night is to journal what bothers you so you can let it go and sleep.. and tr to exercise so your do something so not thinking so much.. i hope things get better for you..! hang in there..

    Sweetie, when you see your doctor, share with them what you shared here. Sounds like you need a hand at figuring things out. We all do at times. You are great at asking for help so use your skill to talk to your doctor and form a treatment plan you can follow. Blessings to you.

    I do not know you very well, but just reading about the pressure your boyfriend puts you through, would make me jump every time too.. You seem to be walking on eggshells to please another person, not yourself.

Your best friend will always be you, go to the mirror and tel your best friend you love her and that she is okay in your eyes. Believe it, say it, and smile back at that person.
IMHO, I agree with Kelliebean about talking to your doctor about your state of mind. Focusing on YOU at this time in your life is important. Every single situation in our lives has more than one option. Ask for yours and write them down, ask for help to get the options.

With your treatment, you were told about how stress breaks down the immune system.. Get the tools form your doc to build that immunity back up. Take somebody with you in the room, to listen and take notes if needed.

    I'm sorry you are going through a tough time. Have you talked to your doctor? Can you get a referral for a therapist?

It's great to reach out when you need help. Don't let yourself slip away. There is more to life than the tv and you deserve to have someone help you find your way to a better life. I will be praying for you and our dad!
