An emotional night and day.

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

My niece called me last night and was very upset. She was crying and I think it was because she didn't have her anti-depressant for a couple days. We got her meds filled and she sounds so much better today. She is now signed up for food stamps, her rent is paid and she has time to take her kids to the doctor when they need to go, because they have coverage. She took her oldest to the eye doctor and he needs glasses. Guess they picked some out and he is happy with the frames. Let's see how he does with them.

I didn't sleep well last night or the night before. It is getting old!! I really need a good night sleep. Just one for now. I am going to be in bed tonight and not fall asleep in the recliner. I am going to go to bed.

I fell asleep in the recliner last night and woke up with my feet sore and swollen. And today I have been on them all day and they are swollen again tonight. And they hurt.

So today we are both feeling better. She feels better because she knows I am here for her and I feel better, because they have food, shelter and health care.


My nutrition is on track today. I swam again for 30 minutes again today. I even sat in the hot tub today. My muscles feel so much better!! I am finally feeling like I did before I fell last week.
emoticon I am going to try to swim the next two days. The more I can get in the pool the better I will feel. And it is so good to be exercising again!


I have a two hour meeting tomorrow but the one before that has been cancelled. That is good. I didn't think I could sit for 3 hours!!

Peer to Peer starts next week. Then I will have 10 weeks with 1 class a week. I will be done before Thanksgiving. emoticon

Wow! Time is going so fast! It is already the middle of September. Every year it goes faster and faster. Too bad my weight doesn't go faster and faster when I lose it. It seems to come off when it wants and not any faster. I am hoping that once I get swimming regularly I will work up to the bike again.
emoticon I didn't think I was ready to ride today after falling last week. Maybe by next week I will be riding and swimming.

    No sleep is no fun, sorry about that it sure does get old. Are you getting your water in? lack of water, too much sugar or sodium can cause swelling, just going over the things I look at when I swell up. Glad the niece is taken care of too. Take care, Victoria
