Where Did I Go?

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

It’s been a stressful and emotional 2 weeks for me. I have not been myself at all. I have been eating junk (although, within calories) and have not been working out. Where did I go?

It started with my friend having a near airplane disaster coming into NY. All are fine. We had a great time when we were together but, then having to say goodbye is very hard for me.

Next, my family got into a pretty bad car accident. All are fine, except for the car which is totaled. Then all the issues of the aftermath regarding that.

Next, having to deal with a coworker who is spreading nasty rumors about me and my “none of his business” life! Which is still continuing and there seems to be no end in sight.

Then getting into an argument with my parents because they just don’t have any regard for anyone elses feelings but themselves.

Then having issues from Crohns because of the stress, which still hasn’t settled down, and is keeping me from working out.

And the cold, dark, damp, weather that has moved in hasn’t help me at all either.

And with the good and bad of the past few weeks I have been drinking too much wine.

There is a lot more but, I will keep it brief.

I am thinking of what I am supposed to take away from these past 2 weeks is:
I am NOT Wonder Woman, no matter how hard I try.
Life is too short so, go after what you want/need to.
Don’t listen to stupid people and/or their idiotic rumors.

Maybe now that I have let some of this out, I can move on and get back to being ME again. Boy, I miss me!

    Hey Gabs, you can't be all thngs to all people, so just be the best you can to the people that matter most to you. You're great for us and people shouldn't judge what they know little about.
    Keep on smiling and don't let the Crohns get you down.

    I am so sorry that you have been hit so hard from all different directions these past two weeks. I am glad that your friend is safe from the airplane disaster and you and your family were not injured in the car accident. As for the co-worker, let him stew in his own negativity. People like that usually end up getting themselves in hot water eventually. Sorry about the argument you had with your parents. Hold your own, my dear. You know what's best for yourself.

    I pray that Crohn's will settle down and that you will get some much needed relief soon. I haven't been keeping in touch as much as I'd like to, but please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, my friend. emoticon

    Lady, if you're not Wonder Woman, I don't know who is! I know it doesn't feel like it right now, but the fact that you are here, and sharing this with us, means that you are on the right track. You've had a helluva couple of weeks, so try to be as gentle with yourself as you would be with any of us. We love you - we think you're GREAT - and we know you can come through this (and were behind you, all the way!!).
    Hang in there,

    You are Wonder Woman, but even Wonder Woman needs to take a break once in awhile.

    I'm sorry that you've had a rough few weeks. I hope things are improving for you, and I still think you're the strongest person I know.

    Is there really any such thing as too much wine? emoticon

    Your quote is great. I may have to borrow that. You will find yourself. You aren't lost. Maybe you just misplaced yourself but you wil find yourself again.

    Gabrielle I am so sorry to hear things have been all over the place or you. I can totally relate. I hope things will settle down for you soon. One thing I admire about you in your wonderful attitude and the way you remain positive even in situations that are not. I am sending you the biggest hug ever!

    Thanks Blonde Girl for sharing yourself!!!
    First of all any life threatening situation can be life altering.
    Second of all it is very hard for parents to be supportive or spouses when the stress in your life causes stress in their lives too. Lots of time worrying about you can come across as criticism or the need to withdraw and focus on their own lives. A life they have some control over.
    Last of all, whenever we go through life changing experiences we do lose ourselves. You have been going through A BUNCH!!!! That is why I kept sticking you on the prayer chart. Ask or not you need the sunshine prayers for strength.
    And the Crohns is such an evil reminder that your body is in control!!! UGH!
    Chain or no chain, I do pray for you. I lift you up in prayer and wish for the healing of your spirit so that you can feel the power inside of you.

    tough times for you for sure ... i hope stressful things will settle down now and you will get a chance to breathe deeply.
    it's good that deep in your heart you know you are NOT wonder woman - you don't have to keep trying as hard as you can because we all love you just the way you are and i believe you are the most amazing not-wonder-woman evah!

    I'm sorry for all the problems you've had lately, but it sounds as if you are on the right track to getting through them all!
    Somehow, you always seem to land on your feet, and I'm so glad of that.

    Awe, Sweet Gabs!
    Take some deep breaths!!
    (Okay, okay, okay~let them out too! Holding your breath isn't healthy!!) Take command of what you can control and turn the other cheek to what you can't. You have the strength within you! Find that strong woman and let her roar!!
