emoticon I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Michelle but, you can call me Chellie (Shelly). I am also a new co-leader and hope to work with the other leaders to improve this Team and to help it be a place everyone wants to participate in.. Not as just another "I have to go post in this group...***yawn***". So feel free to offer suggestions if you'd like. emoticon

I am constantly doing schoolwork and use SP at the same time as a way to keep me calmer and help in some areas that I do not get.

I just started a wonderful book by Beth Moore named SO LONG INSECURITIES. It is WONDERFUL and so uplifting!

I have my sweet old girl cat that I think is dying soon...I am not dealing with this very well. (she is the white kitty pictured here in my picture)

I would like to have the rescued dog lovers to be more active. I have recently became the co-leader and it seems like everything I try the team is practically inactive. I would like to have new active members. I am also hoping to handle stress and tests easier. We are also looking for a home when it comes to a Tammy cat. He is less than 1, but is not fixed, he lives under my house in Baltimore, MD, friendly, and have 2 injured paws. He was starving, but we have taking care of that part.

Thank you for the suggestions.

Sorry about the incredibly slow response time from me- I'm currently battling my perfectionism & 'yes syndrome' plus trying to get things back in order so I can go back to work soon.

I'm going to work on finding a few pictures- will run them by you all, see what most people would like the team's vision (so to speak) is.

I am going to sticky a positive topic, so please everyone post! Not only do we get to know each other better but we also get more SparkPoints!

Cyrella - that's great that you dance and you got outside for some fresh air. I know exercise always helps me when I'm anxious. I do feel calmer. Try to push yourself to be social and to do things. I know it's hard. Also, when I'm anxious I try to tell myself that I have no control what life brings. Take one day at a time.

My grandson is doing well. He such a cutie. Thank your for asking.

Hi Camille: I went to the DR on Friday. My blood pressure was high and no wonder why I was feeling the way I was. I have to take meds for it and water pills. Life goes on I guess to get healthy. I can do my dancing I like to do which I began doing for a little bit. I have to get into doing more of that. I like that. I don't do yoga or tia chi. I know these things relaxes the mind.
I went out today for a short walk and it was nice out. I needed to get out anyway. I belong to a place that helps people with emotional difficulties but I don't go very often. They do have socials on the weekends. I wanted to go tonight, but decied not to since I was not feeling too well during the week. Better to take it slow. It will be cold tongiht, too. I have to take mass transit to get there. It is located in Manhattan. I live in Westchester County, NY.
That is all for now. Thanks for your concern. Hope all is well with you. By the way, how is your grandson doing?

Cyrella - sorry to hear you were feeling dizzy. I hope you are feeling better. Are you able to exercise or do yoga, tai chi? That might help your anxiety some.

You were not harsh. I know what you meant about talking about anxiety and how we can help each other. It is not easy having this and sometimes it is good to talk it out. I did not go to work today and went to the DR. I felt dizzy this week. My blood pressure was high on Friday and he took it three times. Talk about anxiety.

I'm sorry if I seemed to sound harsh...no I realize that we need to talk to things out but I was looking for topics that may help us with our anxiety. Give it a more positive twist?

What type of depressing topics were discussed on the team? I joined a few weeks ago and don't know what has been going on. I think people who have anxiety also will talk about things that are depressing them. That also goes hand in hand with everything. I get depressed at times and my anxiety level tends to get high. I was dizzy for a bit for 3 days in a row. It could be anxiety, hormones or both. I found out I have osteoporosis. I believe that was triggering my anxiety, too. People on Sparkpeople have a lot of difficulties and talking about things might be an outlet for some. There is a team for depression as there is a team for Bipolar. Sparkpeople has it all.
I just wanted to talk about this. Have a good day.

Hi Tara - Thanks for becoming the co-leader for this team.

Changes I would like to see are more positives for us sparkers who suffer from anxiety. I felt this team tended to discuss depressing topics. A picture...maybe the sunshine? a serene landscape???? People with anxiety need to be serene...perhaps we can start a yoga challenge...

Just a few suggestions...

Camille

Hi Tara: Congratulations on becoming a co-leader for the team. That is wonderful. I know you will do a great job.
I was off from work today and glad. The weather was horrible. It is windy now as I am typing. Hope you had good weather.
As far as putting a picture, maybe something like bar bells LOL to help motivate to get us moving. I don't work out much and I should. I used to use the tread mill a lot, so if you have a picture of that, you can put that in for a picture if you want instead of bar bells. I think that would be better. Anxiety and Excercise certainly do go hand in hand. I get anxious a lot and I have to do my breathing excersises. It does help. I also like to walk and did the other day to a bus stop about a mile away. It takes me 25 minutes to walk.
Not much is going on. I am glad you stopped in to write. Take care. Be well. emoticon

Hi,

I hope everyone is feeling good today and, if not *great big hugs* to you.

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but I've become a co-leader because I didn't want this team to become unactive without a leader. The think is, I've never been a team leader for SP. So I'm looking for suggestions that you would like to see for this team (particularly a team picture- I would like to put something in that currently grey box).

Tara
