Lately my focus has been on my son and his issue, (I tend to think his pacemaker is the cause of his issues) which is still not resolved. How I would love some closure, so we can take action and move on. Not having a diagnosis is frustrating. Do we accept what is? Where do we go from here? Too many unanswered questions without a diagnosis.
Hiding my anxiety, has caused old habits to resurface, especially nighttime gnawing. Stuffing my face will not take the feeling away.
I did get some great news. I haven't gained any weight in the past 6 weeks. What a blessing that is. I did come off a medication before this started with my son. Being off the medication has resulted in better quality sleep as the med had the effect of slowing down digestion.
So how did I Not gain weight? By being here at SP, attending a weight loss course offered by my grocery store. Even though I felt driven to poor choices, thankfully I still made plenty of healthy choices.
As a treat I got myself a box of Smith's No. 96 tea. I am soothed by the heavenly scent of jasmine emanating from my cup as I drink the warm tea. All thoughts depart and just the thoughts of the fragrance remain.
The simple act of having a simple cup of tea intriguing enough to command my attention and focus, helps me to replace my outdated coping behavior. Thankfully I get to choose my reactions.
Learning to take care of myself in trying times. This is a good learning experience.
