Feeling low

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Haven't be en in the best of spirits, my mind and body have given me a lot to handle this year my journey has been tough and quite honestly I feel beaten down. My immune system is extremely low, I keep getting sinus infection which aggravate my asthma right now. My foot has bothered me alot my running has been sporadic and I miss it. I have been told pool only for a few weeks. I start tomorrow. I am at a point we're I really want to hide and not be around others. Some Friendships are really testing my heart. I have always been there, they at times drained everything out of me with their family drama but always did I listen. Now when I am at a crossword where are they. I have come to realize that some friends are forever, some just pop in but it is up to me to hold my standards up. If you want a therapist pay for one I am no longer the free ride for you. I can count my real friends and family in my one hand. I need to take care of me and that includes sorting out whom stays and who I keep at a distance to keep my heart from breaking.

    I'm sorry to hear that you were so low. And I hope you are feeling at least some better by now. I have a few problems from time to time, but it's never any good to tell them to someone else - so I'm sorry your friends felt the need to vent. Remember the old saying "This too shall pass." What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. emoticon emoticon

    I feel like I went through much of the 2nd half of your blog a few years back, and now I have a good core of just a couple of "go-to" people, and I feel better for it. Life's too short to spend with people who don't make you feel good about yourself - including the drainers!

    The first half of your blog I'm experiencing the same thing. For about 6 years now I've been trying to find my exercise identity as things I loved were taken from my exercise repertoire. It's a struggle, for certain. I'm still trying to find new things that fit both my time constraints and body constraints. Having said that, you have that cool trainer friend, right? Maybe he can help you come up with stuff you can do?

    I can also highly recommend boxing if your upper body will do it. Not hitting people, just bags. And you do get a leg workout, but without pounding them (like running). With a good trainer, you learn that each punch comes from your legs and torso more than your arms, so you do get a full body workout and it torches calories! And I always feel so peaceful afterward.

    Good luck, lady, we're with you!

    Oh honey I'm sorry that this seems to be a particularly rough patch for you.
    Yes, it's true, friendships aren't forever, but sometimes the few true friends show their weight in gold during the painful seasons in life. I'm praying that those tried and true valuable friends step up at this time, and wrap their arms around you with love...
    I've learned a lot since my disease reared it's ugly head. Lost a lot of friendships since some were literally afraid of how I was starting to look as Ethel progressed. I couldn't go out or be as active anymore. I was always in pain. A lot of them just disappeared. It broke my heart. But then I realized that although I only had a handful of friends and family left supporting me, that was all I needed truly.
    I am sending you giant gentle hugs of support, and a prayer of healing for your body.you WILL get back to running, and breathing better.this is only temporary!
    And amidst this great trial in your life,I still see your strength: you refuse to let friends take advantage of you. Shame on them for not seeing all of the beauty you have to contribute to true friendship. Proud of you for standing up for yourself.
    We will be here for you and hope you feel better soon...Bren

    I'm sorry that your feeling so badly. Let the energy sapping "friends" learn to deal with their problems on their own. Take all that energy and put it towards yourself. You deserve to feel the best you can!

    Sinus infections are no fun. Hopefully, you will get over it very soon.

    Sending you good thoughts and prayers. emoticon
