Uff Da!!!

Friday, September 14, 2012

Not exactly what that means. emoticon but it's mentioned as a norwegian phrase a lot in a book I am reading that in what I can tell means Good grief or something along those lines. Anyway....Uff Da!

I am feeling really overwhelmed today and I'm trying my best to stay in positive mode but it's not easy. I just want to emoticon sometimes. And sometimes I do just that.

Alot going on:

~ My brother who nearly died last year with double Pneumonia last year has a bad case of bronchitis and is on strong anibiotic and nebulizer treatments nightly. Please pray for healing.

~ My binge eating is craziness and the lbs just keep adding on. I feel so out of control that I've given up altogether....NOT GOOD I KNOW! I am trying to incooperate more emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon in my diet so at least somethings are going right in that regard.

~ Back Pain and Fibro flaring up off and on. Some days are just better than others. This week I have been blessed with pretty good lower pain days. I have been doing my PT exercises on a more regular basis...still need to step it up a lil. I am finding them helpful. Right now I have added balance exercises as my balance has been bad and I've had a few falls or near falls.

~ Went to Dr. today and all my lab work came back normal. YA! Still no answers as to why I am falling, although I suspect it is my inner ear issue I have. Funny she seems to think there is more to it. Guess I should be glad she is being thorough. She is scheduling an MRI on my head. Will have the date soon. Am hoping this time my insurance won't hold things up. They did that on my MRI for my back.

~ Had some help cleaning my apartment. Things are looking better and I am oh so thankful. Tomorrow my friend plans to come over again so emoticon

~ Am ever so thankful for a wonderful couple at my church who are so graciously donating to me a like new full size mattress & Box springs to replace my 13 year old set that is probably adding to my back problems.

~ Am LOVING working with the single Mom;s ministry at my church! They are a great group of women who have stolen my emoticon

While there is a lot of yuck going on here in my life there is a lot to be thankful for! Thankful for all my SPARK FRIENDS!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm so glad you wrote about what's going on. And taken all together, it's not that bad! Eating more freggies is definitely positive! That, plus plenty of water, and even slight reductions in the high-calorie foods, will help over time.

    And emoticon on the organizing/cleaning front! Getting energy moving there, shedding the burden of clutter, improving the appearance of your home may inspire you to make similar changes with your body.

    And the emotional and spiritual connections you are making will help you feel good about you and fill you up in a way that food can't even though we may try to make it. One of my favorite Louise Hay affirmations is "I nourish myself with spritiual food, and I feel satisfied and free."

    Just keep doing what you can, and know that it is enough for now. You are beautiful, capable and lovable, and you deserve to be healthy and happy!

    So much for you to try to deal with ! be gentle with yourself ~ You are under a lot of stress and that can really mess you up.

    Just make the next right choice.
