I know I just started, but...

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

I'm already very discouraged. My husband and I are in a bit of a rough patch financially, and the stress has all but completely consumed me. I went to the doctor today for my checkup, and low and behold I'm now on adderall because of ADD symptoms. I did discuss this with my doctor, so it's not like I didn't expect it, but it's just more money out of our pocket when we can barely afford to put food in our fridge. That and I'm about to lose insurance on the 21st with conditions like asthma, complex migraines, etc. It's especially hard to try to do a weight loss program when you have no money to buy healthy foods. I'm feeling really down right now, I hate feeling like this. Eventually, I will be doing South Beach as it's what my doctor has strongly encouraged. So be it. I'm familiar with it anyway, I just need to get out of this situation. I suppose I just needed to rant. emoticon

    My boyfriend has ADD, & is unable to get Adderall right now because he's longer on his mom's insurance. (He turned 25.) It's extremely tough for both of us. I just hope I get health insurance through my work soon.

    Hi there Timaro!

    I was looking through various sparkpages and I came across your blog. What attracted me was the title. I read your synopsis and I know what you are going through. Right now, IM financially strapped along with hubby and I have a child. I am trying to keep my weight down dut to health reasons that I am trying to keep under control. However, is not easy when you are facing monetary and medical challenges. Hang in there darling, you have to take care of you first. Sorry, but its the truth. The hell with everything else because things will fall apart if you cannot or willnot put yourself back on track.

    Another thing, you are a very beautiful woman. You are photogenic and you appear to be happy in your pictures. Please, take your time with these meal plans. Do the best you can. Figure out what needs to be done for that day. You don't have to prove that you are WONDER WOMAN for anybody. Also, dont let he diagnosis of A.D.D allow you to NOT have control of your life. You have the support that you need from me, team members who are going through the same crises that you are experiencing. Remember this "God is not going to give you more than he thinks that you can handle." Be safe and please promise to reach out....ok...

    Talk to ya soon.......

    P.S. Even if you dont respond to me, I still am wishing the best for you and your husband. Have a wonderful week. STOP BEING SO HARD ON YOURSELF!!!
