I am at a crossroads today. I am very seriously considering leaving SparkPeople. With all the stresses in my life lately, I just don't know if I want to continue.

Oh, Dear Judy !


You are TOTALLY emoticon

But You MUST take CARE of yourself.

Hopefully you just need a temporary sabbatical

Yes, YOU have had a rough spring too

Whatever you decide, You will
in my heart
You have been wonderfully supportive and loving

    You ca stay & use SP however works best for you. What makes you feel good/positive.
Give yourself permission to:
-not logon every day, just when you need/want it.
-use the features that help you without contributing (blog etc)

What works for me (I've been under a lot of stress due to health & other problems):
-- daily view the blogs that give me a smile, or a positive start to the day. It helps.
-- blog cute animal pics or jokes to pay back.
-- emails & reminders help me stay somewhat on track to eat right & be active. Not perfect results, but working enough for me. If I get too off course, I'll feel worse.

Whatever works for you is OK with your SP friends.

Good luck.

    It is the support of Spark that may help you get through the stress. At least I think so. Blogging about the specifics might feel like you are exposing yourself to criticism and judgement, but honestly it is therapy of the best sort. emoticon
