Back to the basics

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

I never thought I would be the person that doesn't take care of themselves because work is so hard. But, I am that person now. I haven't been eating right, I haven't exercised in a month, I am so sick its ridiculous. I had a nervous break down on Sunday, tears, wanting to die, went to bed at 7 pm. Just a wreck. I've been having caffeine and not getting outside. I haven't been eating enough veggies. I haven't been well since 10/1/13. My glands have been swollen the whole time. This whole past year has been a practice in illness. I've gained 30lbs from the antibiotics for my cellulitis infection (caught from a bug bite.) I haven't started losing weight.

I just need to go back to basics:

Count calories
Watch Carbs
Cardio before breakfast (or after hard boiled egg.)
Meditate or yoga at night before bed.

My gut is a mess. I had a walnut that might have been too old and a bit rancid. Now, my gut is all tore up. I'm taking marshmallow root for the pain, magnesium, probiotics, and I'm living on kefir. Everything hurts.

Just going to the grocery store is a chore now. Waaaa!!! emoticon I feel sorry for myself.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your illness. My best friend had that too, and I watched her suffer for years with it on and off. You're right: "Back to the basics". Just take baby steps. We can do this! emoticon

I think you need to see a doctor. You have some medical problems that need addressing. A doctor may be able to help you get back on track sooner. You may have to take some time off work and get some rest.

    I'm sorry you are having such a hard time of it right now. Your health issues are enough to make anyone depressed. Don't be too hard on yourself and your father is right, try not to take things personally. See if you can get back to eating right and getting a little exercise even if it is just a short walk outside. Walking in the outdoors can help depression a lot, I can tell you.

Take care and healing thoughts your way...
