Stress Eating

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

I am mindful of myself most of the time - so when I started to mindlessly eat - I was able to talk myself out of it. Yes I did eat 10 donut holes before I stopped - but I stopped.
I keep wondering if it is worth it to do my Masters. I am stressed to the max all the time and the classes are the only thing I can get rid of. Ageing parents are keepers, kids are keepers, rescue dogs are keepers, job is a necessity what does that leave - classes. I need to really consider this as an option instead of thinking I can do it. Cause the reality is I cannot do it all.
My mom has been evicted from her Seniors complex - so to try and find her a place to live.Dad refuses to give up driving even though he is a menace. These are worries and stressors that will work themselves out though.
I need to figure this out for myself sooner rather than later.....

    Oh my gosh - I am stressed out just reading about it!!!

I am SO glad you recognized that yes, you DID STOP!! That is great. Could have been a whole package of donut holes! WTG.

I don't know if doing your Masters can be done on a more part time scale? Or is it a set thing, and it's kind of all or nothing? I'm sure you have researched this already, just thought I'd ask.

Things do tend to have a way or working themselves out, although it doesn't make it easier in the moment! I hope that things do calm down for you, and you are able to make a decision one way or the other about school. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

    You are right Family must come first! aging parents can be difficult to juggle with kids and dogs. There are groups that help sort out problems like you are talking about. Check out your local senior center or department of aging they would know to find such support groups. You are not alone there are many others in your situation. hope your situation calms down soon and life smoothes out a little! you will be in my thoughts! emoticon
