My beau's mom has non-small cell lung cancer according to her test results thus far. They are planning on starting her on chemo. He is dealing with the new ok so far. We don't have the money to go to Texas, but if the need should arise, we have enough for him to take the bus to Texas. I feel so bad because I am still not working and don't have the money or a car to get him there immediately.

My asthma is kicking my butt again today and I haven't had the energy to get anything done...I haven't gotten anything done all week since we went to the zoo this past Sunday. I know that not being able to breathe saps my energy, but I have been in one of those moods all week. I am stressed about not having heard anything from my job interview on Monday and am wondering if the HR lady was "stuck in a meeting" because I am not going to be offered a job...that's the only reason that I can think of why she wouldn't return my voice mail messages.

I have been doing pretty good with my eating during the day...which is good, because I think I am blowing it at night. Not "I think" I KNOW I am blowing it at night.
I think its just a combination of anxiety, frustration, and I think its what would normally be my shark week, except I don't actually get it anymore, thanks to a fantastic doctor, lol! I do occasionally have the same cravings and pms once in awhile as I still have all my equipment.

I sit here on Thursday and Friday nights and watch American Ninja Warrior and get all inspired to get my butt in gear to do SOMETHING.

    I know what you mean about not hearing back regarding the job interview. We had a young lady with us for several months who interviewed various places...never would hear back....Very stressful.

    Sorry about the cancer of your beau' s Mom. It is amazing what chemo can do now. They pretty well can control side effects. I will keep her in my prayers. Peace!

    People are incredibly RUDE about not replying to job seekers. I have a couple friends applying right now also, and they have all had that experience - no one bothers to let you know "oh we went with someone else but it was nice to meet you, sorry" or whatever. Rude!!!

    I'm sorry to hear about the mom! Hope the chemo goes okay. That's always hard, waiting and wondering from far away. emoticon hang in there!

    Hate that feeling, where you get frustrated at EVERYTHING, at Life! And it makes you get lazy and complacent and just sit there.

    But YOU have to break this sitting watching TV and get up and move about a bit...plan healthy snacks for evenings while watching TV, Do some Good, Healthy things for yourself , and it will make you feel so much better . Great advice from Karen to, about going to walk around an A/C'd Mall, or Shopping center, Library.

    I hope you hear something from your job interview.

    And I will say some prayers for your BF's Mom. And for strength for all of you!

    Energy levels plummet for me with ragweed season, breathing is harder with my allergies so slightly understand. I know it isn't the same thing, and if you do not have a/c where you are staying, I'd suggest walking someplace that does for a while to see if that helps. Library? Store?

    Cravings sure are a hard thing ... stressed out and we feel we need comfort. Hard to find a better safer comfort than the food. Maybe you can find something else to keep your hands busy that doesn't involve calories?

    Sorry his Mom is going to start chemo, but will hope it helps her for the better in the long run.

    Job: they are about as bad as doctors/tests making us wait. Guess others were interviewed as well so it is a wait and see and keep putting in applications.

    While watching TV, can you walk in place? Even a little bit during commercials would burn a few calories and amuse anyone in the room as well.
