relationships are work but this one is so challenging

Friday, May 24, 2013

Good Morning; GF and DS talked. I do not know the results but the parties seemed relieved and more happy. But I found out the GF did not tell DS about a speeding ticket she got last week. The fee will be high. Just when I try to assist them in communication, I get hope that they are finally coming around -another challenge crops up. This couple is trying to save money. She says she is going to fight it. She did not know when to tell him b/c of the stress he was under. She was worried about his reaction. She had another speed incident last year but was given a warning. Any way, they are coming down this weekend. I am hoping the situation will be more manageable with DH & I around. I can not wait for vacation b/c I am getting tired. They are supposed to get into couples counseling but have not made the appt. yet. I am praying they do. At one time, I thought I would make a good counselor, but it is so trying and exhausting working with people and their problems. Last week I developed an outbreak like hives on my right cheek. I have never had ache in my life. The left cheek is clear. I look like a before and after shot. I do not know what is going on except my body must be over loaded with stress from DS, DH and GF. My face is clearing up but it must be an immune reaction because I am internalizing the stress. I am going to the gym today. Have a good day!! emoticon emoticon

    I hope you did go to the gym, it relieves my stress entirely, and then a good brisk walk helps me also, all by myself,
    I honestly fell out of bed yesterday morning, and thankfully did not break anything, but my right arm is all bruised up, my right foot is swollen on the edge, like maybe I bruised a tendon or something, not sure, sore elbow and knee on the left, weird, I did what I do so often, woke up with a bad leg cramp, jumped out of bed, I did not hang on to the side of the bed, and my left leg would not hold me (CRAMP), anyway, fell backward, hit the night stand going down, and I guess the floor on my left, I am fine, just kind of glad I will have the weekend and Monday to recoup, no gym until Wednesday, so hope I am over my soreness.
    Sure hope all goes well with your family this weekend, and if a person can not be truthful with their mate, it does no sound like it will be a happy permanent relationship. But I hope all turns out well Hugs

    OMG my dear. When the body is under stress (perceived or not -- and you certainly have BOTH!) and it is prolonged (which yours has been!), the bod releases a steady stream of cortisol, whic can do all kinds of things in th body, like hives, etc. So, I would be pretty sure that the stressors you've had would be at leastpartly to blame!

    Anyhow, hope that your DS and GF are able to get it together. It surely would benefit them to have couples counseling. Looking back on things in hindsight, it should be a pre-requisite to marrying!

    I feel blessed to have a good marriage, but there are just those times when it is tough to figure out how to cope! An outside opinion is so helpful!

    I think you'd be a wonderful counselor! For what it's wrth, i may be ease to listen to others' problems when it's not family.

    HUGS and hope you get to enjoy your weekend with DS, GF AND Kimber.
