TRYING To Stay Positive

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Sometimes I let everything - especially all of my health problems - completely overwhelm me. And then it gets really difficult to stay positive about anything. With the Bipolar Disorder; I am currently working with my doctors to stabalize myself. But I am tired of all the medications, doctor & therapy visits, and the money it all costs. Especially when it seems nothing is helping. With my Diabetes, I am sick and tired of pricking my finger multiple times a day. I HATE it. I REALLY do. And constantly having to be careful to not eat anything that could cause my sugar to rise too much. It's all so exhausting. The only good thing right now is that I am *FINALLY* starting to break free from the plateau I was in. That encourages me to at least keep trying to eat healthy and get more active. And I know that in a way, I have the Diabetes to thank for helping me stay on track because I can't eat anything bad, even if I wanted to. However, even though that is a good thing doesn't mean that it still isn't all extremely frustrating and overwhelming. Ugh...

    Maybe you can find a way to put it in perspective. Maybe someone else has to do even MORE than that, to stay alive and reasonably healthy.
    I'm really proud of you. I'm new to your blogs, but each one I've read makes me more and more impressed with you. Way to go!

    I know it all seems mundane to you but it is keeping you healthy and alive! You do have positive results starting now so cheer up it's a good thing! I know you can do this even though it takes time out of your day. Just track your food and fitness everyday and that will help. Good luck with your journey and take care, Lucinda
