Weather is a Killer!

Friday, June 25, 2010

Had the day off, it's a good thing. I went outside twice and couldn't breath. I think my lungs are getting worse. I have no breathing capacity in this weather, 99 with humidity. Tennessee is ugly now. I am so furtunate to have a good husband.. He really takes good care of me.

I see myself as a skinny person in a fat girls body. I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Being upset takes too much energy and I don't have any to spare. I don't want my kids to see me feeling like this. They are already stressed with the economy.

I can't believe my grandson will be here soon. I will let you all know, hopefully with a pic if I can find the camera my lovely has lost.

I want to talk about issues now. We all have issues and we all handle them differently. I think finding a healthy way of dealing with issues is the most difficult part. I tend to look for the quickest of easiest way to get past something but recently I had to actually make a change in order to deal with this.

I work with psychiatric patients and I have this MR girl who wears me out. She is demanding, intrusive, attention seeking. She has hurt several people and requires a firm hand. I reached the end o my rope with her and lost my temper. It is not appropriate. I had to look within to make sure this didn't happen again. The process was positive. I have dealt with her more effectively this week, no restraints and no temper flairs. YEH me.

This tells me I can do this weight thing, I just have to figure out what works for me and do it. The support has blown me away. SP are special people. Think I'll stick around.

    The heat in NC is awful too!!

    It takes a very special person to work in the field that you do! They can be a difficult group to handle. I have some fond but also some pretty scary memories of my rotation on the psych ward!!

    Good luck with your weight loss journey!! You can do it!
