Need to make a change now!!!!!

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Well I just celebrated my 37th birthday this past Saturday with my husband who also turned 40. I don't really feel good about myself right now......I take my last nursing class this coming monday and I am already "stressed to death" I hate it when I get this way but this is just how it is in this nursing program it is Extremely Stressful. I have such a terrible headache right now and I have been getting the headaches more frequently lately. I was getting the headache really bad just before classes let out before Christmas Break so right now I'm wandering if it is the stress or is it something else like High Blood Pressure. I can easily take my own blood pressure but I am just not ready to face that!!!! How crazy is that???? I know that I am not eating right or doing a lick of exercise. I can't bring myself to start going to the gym the way I was going over 6 months ago. I am in such a horrible rut and I have got to pull myself out of it quickly. My health is at stake here!!!!!

    Hey, lady! I'm sorry to hear you're going through such hard times right now, but you've got to take control of your situation. I know the nursing program can be very stressful, but you've got to take care of yourself first.

    By all means, if you haven't already, get your blood pressure checked to ensure there's nothing else wrong. Sounds like stress is getting the best of you and it certainly doesn't help that you're not exercising. Take at least 15 - 20 minutes a day and start doing something. Consistency is key right now. You will feel so much better.

    I will check on you from time to time to make sure you get and stay on track.

    Take care and keep in touch.

    Hey & Happy belated birthday to you!

    At this point you really just have to work on APPLYING yourself. Its ok to write down your feelings, but at the end of the day they are just words. ACTIONS speak LOUDER THAN WORDS!, but you knew this. Its time to be real about everything! figure out your blood pressure and go from there. You can start of slow, and really get on a roll. It relieves a lot of stress and will really make you feel like you`ve accomplished what you set out to do! I wish you the best,
