One day at a time

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Today has been a good day. I admit that there were times that it was not so good, but it has ended well & that makes it a good day altogether.

There was a time that I was having a bad day today. I was having a bad "mental health" day. It was just one of those days when you don't want to get out of the nightgown & move amongst the living. Instead of sitting around being depressed, I got dressed and went to babysit the granddaughters. They were all in good moods today and that made things smoother. My OA meeting tonight went well & I feel much MUCH better now that it's over. We are a small group but a solid one and find that we are working well together. I had a lot to think about after we were done. My SIL is not coming home tonight so my son went over to take care of the girls until their mother gets home so that I could get things done & get to bed at a decent time.

Tomorrow is my appointment with the doctor. I am hoping that she will release me to go back to work. I miss the pool. I miss the exercise. I miss the people. I am really hopeful. I feel better and am breathing better for the most part. I have a Nebulizer and that will help me too. Think happy thoughts.

My food is low. My exercise is also low but at least I am doing it. Someone at my meeting tonight noticed that I am walking faster. I hope that it's not just the steroids and in part it is because of the weight loss. I am happy with my plan of action and am actually tweeking it. I am happy with that.

    Actually your day sounds like a productive one, Dawn.

I admire how you decided not to allow depression to have its way.

Your OA meeting sounds to be of benefit & for that I am thankful on your behalf. I like the concept of the OA program.

In reference to your note on my Blog - all goes smoothly under our piece of the sky. The 23rd was a great day of seeing our Lord's hand of provision, grace, & mercy demonstrated in the lives of two of our family members, so we are on that proverbial "Cloud Nine" praising & thanking our Creator for all the blessings He sends.

God bless!

    You are doing amazingly well. I know how hard it is when you are wanting desperately to exercise and just can't do it. I'll keep my fingers crossed - and pray - that all goes well at the docs tomorrow.
