Ups and Downs are Part of LIFE!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

I am so tired of dealing with health issues. In January I dealt with Diverticulitis which set me back and made me unable to work out for 2 weeks. Then I was doing great for a couple of weeks and then I was rear ended while stopped at a stop light. I have been dealing with back injuries since then. THEN, I got a major sinus / ear infections and was running a fever for 2 weeks. Finally, this weekend I dealt with heart palpitations and went into an anxiety attack because of it and ended up in the ER.

SOOOOOO, NOW I am TIRED of all these setbacks. Today I was in the pool and did a great workout, then was on to the chiropractor to deal with the car accident injuries. Just taking things one day and step at a time.

I am still fighting all the other stresses of raising BiPolar, Anxious, Depressed, Autistic, ADHD children. It has been such a wild time of instability with them lately too... SOOOO, on to do my best to manage all the challenges.

EXERCISE is my key to managing the stresses and anxiety. I cannot do it without my workouts.

Keep Smiling and do what is right.... One right choice at a time.... Hugs, Tina

    That exercise is what keeps your mood positive! Look at it as a part of your daily "needs" just like water, bathing, food. I have been in such a blue mood these past weeks but the past few days was able to get outside to begin to clean my darned yard now that the snow is "mostly" gone. I felt better the rest of the day, slept well and am ready to tackle another section.

    You've done so well, whatever you do, realize that YOU are important, too. If those kids need a mommy who is 100% realize that you can't give them what they need until you give yourself what you need.
