  • My first session.

    10/22/2014 8:20:46 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Had my first therapy session today. It went well. We talked about my history a bit and what brought me in to see her. Just knowing I'm getting some help has made me feel better. She's got me doing a homework assignment where I write down all the jobs I do in a week. I'm going back in another week. S... Read more

  • Therapy.

    10/21/2014 7:48:25 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    For many years (about 20), I've wanted therapy. I wish my parents had gotten me into therapy, or at least counseling through school. I've always wondered if I could've gotten the help I needed THEN, would things be different now. I moved out a few weeks after I graduated high school, and I've never ... Read more

  • Kept a promise.

    Yesterday I set a goal for this week. I wanted to walk at least three times this week, and for at least ten minutes each time. Today after work, I went to the health food store and picked up my herbs, and went on a 12 minute walk after I did that. I know it's not much, but I'm proud of it anyway. I'... Read more

  • Discovery.

    10/19/2014 9:19:06 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I've come to the realization that I need to change a rather large number of my personal attributes and habits. These are all things which have been part of my life for so long, that I truly do not know life without them. I'm scared to make these changes. I'm scared of the unknown. I'm scared to comp...

  • Improving?

    10/18/2014 10:57:56 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I've begun to feel a bit better. I woke up at 3am Friday morning with a migraine and had to call in to work. I've been so sick this year, so has Daughter, and I hope I don't get in trouble at work for missing so many days. I was incredibly tired and depressed all day yesterday. I felt bad... Read more

  • Broken.

    10/14/2014 9:34:34 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I've decided to forgo the wedding this weekend. I've just felt awful, and in more ways than one. My mom was/is pretty ticked at me but I honestly don't even care. I've got to rest. Picked up my dog's ashes today. I started crying as I was leaving the office, cried the whole way home, and cried ... Read more

  • Rule #1: You gotta be hungry

    10/14/2014 12:18:38 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I know, I know. This is anti-Spark. But for me it is true. I've lost weight 2x's in my life and both times I had to be hungry at first. When you eat 3500 calories of crap a day and cut down to 1200-1400 calories you are gonna be hungry at least for a week or two. Week 1: October 14-21 Foo... Read more

  • Pick-me-up.

    10/13/2014 10:19:01 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Let me just get this out of the way first. Husband and I talked off and on all day today and we're in a good place this evening. I'm too tired to get into it, but I understand better where he was coming from and he understands where I am/was coming from. More importantly, nobody is giving up just ye... Read more

  • Heartbroken.

    10/12/2014 9:56:14 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    It's been nearly three hours since my last entry, and that incident. Here's an update. A few minutes after he came into the bedroom and ignored me, I left the bedroom and called Daughter out to the kitchen for dinner. She and I sat at the island together and had dinner. I brushed my teeth and c... Read more

  • Alone.

    10/12/2014 7:19:54 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I hurt my back earlier this morning. I spent some time on the heating pad a little while ago, and then I asked Husband to rub some Muscle Rub on my back. As he was rubbing my back, I just started crying a little bit. I just have this overwhelming sadness lately that I can't shake. He and I have been... Read more

  • Overwhelmed.

    10/12/2014 5:05:49 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I don't even know where to begin. My dog died a week ago yesterday. It's been one of the hardest things I've ever been through. I've cried every single day. My mother, whom I called about an hour after she died, hasn't called, emailed, sent a card, nothing. When I called her the day my dog died... Read more

  • National Depression Screening Day

    10/8/2014 7:12:29 PM, by SPEEDY143

    October 9, 2014 While researching lung diseases today I came across this site. If you are interested in taking an online screening you'll find that they have a number of different categories that cause depression. I found it v... Read more

  • Worst weekend ever.

    10/5/2014 9:23:05 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I have three dogs, one of which is elderly. She's always been really "funny" about going poop. She is really picky about where/when/how she goes. If the grass is wet, she doesn't want to go. You have to basically force her to get out there and poop. As she's gotten older, she just decides she doesn'... Read more

  • Good things, and a pretty good day :)

    10/1/2014 8:03:31 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    So yesterday I emailed a couple of local Physical Therapy offices and today...one of them responded! They were very enthusiastic about me wanting to volunteer, and even said it could potentially turn into something more permanent. As she put it, "a paid opportunity." So. I'm going to call the owner/... Read more

  • Beginning again.

    9/30/2014 10:46:30 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Today I submitted my application to go back to school. I plan to begin taking a few online courses, and as soon as our debts are paid off and we have some money saved, I'm going to get a part-time job or cut my hours at my current job and begin full-time classes. I have decided to get a degree in Ph... Read more

  • I'm back.

    9/29/2014 9:20:07 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I'm decluttering my life, in every way I can possibly think of. Removing excess, toxicity, and unnecessary things of all kinds. I started over today, and in kind of a new way. I also decided to start journaling again. I'm currently working on decluttering my home. My house is always neat and o... Read more
