Weekends can be hard at times

Saturday, August 17, 2013

Good Morning; DH goes to weight watchers. He weights in once a week. He weighs in and is a terrible mood. He thinks he should lose 2-4 lbs a week. This week he lost a little over 1 lb. I think that is good. He is in a miserable mood. So this means, this weekend might not go so well. I love weekends like this. emoticon DS did keep calm even though we did not get much accomplished yesterday at VA. One thing that DS did was let me go with him to talk to doctor and other appts. This was a first. VA process is still very confusing. We had to fill out so much paperwork.
We are still working on a wheel chair. We are going to find a civilian doctor to write out a Rx. He needs a customized wheel chair for his back - he wants one with a flexible back. I hope it will not be that hard to find one but who knows. I did not think the VA doctor would not write one. It is very obvious that my DS needs one. I just think that the doctor was a bean counter with no desire to do anything beyond a procedure. I have worked with people like this- they are afraid to do anything that is not in a procedure. I do not tell my DH that I lost weight this week. He can be very competitive with me. I have been watching what I eat, exercising and working through stress with getting some down time. Working with my DS has put a focus on my health again b/c I know with this kind of stress my health can go down hill fast. have a wonderful weekend. emoticon emoticon

    Good for you, recognizing the need to put your own health on a priority footing. For sure in your shoes it's a case of putting your own oxygen mask on first! Hang in there!

    I find that as stress goes up so does the mindless eating, so glad you have a handle on that, take care of yourself.

    emoticon on your weight loss and taking care of yourself. You can't help anyone if you don't take care of yourself. I am glad that your DS let you go with him to his appts.

    Have a wonderful weekend. Prayers and hugs

    It's hard when you don't get any support from those you live with. I'll give you a emoticon emoticon for your weight loss. The VA is still being difficult to deal with, I see. It's been 27 years since I've had to deal with them and it was only to get a headstone for my father. It took me a year to get it. You've got the right idea about the VA doctors. I'm glad you see that if you want something, go to a doctor that's not involved with it.
