chronic stress

Thursday, October 11, 2012

so I read a article on here and find out I have chronic stress. It really was a eye opener I shared it with several people . Some of the things I do everyday it said was stress related and I never realized it. Such as not being able to enjoy taking a break or doing something you want to do. If I do that all I can think about is the million other things I want to do. Doing more then one thing at a time. Heck I have done 4 things at a time if I have to. Getting frustrated if something dosent get done. Oh yea I have to get things done as soon as I find out about them or I feel like I have OCD the day just can not get done until it is done. This is especially true at work. So I have this yet I do not know how to fix it. Just saying hey take a break obviously is not going to help here. I think I need a very long vacation and catch up on stuff and be able to work on something and finish it without doing several other things at the same time. Here is a example on the weekends I can be fixing lunch, taking care of the baby, working on a quilt, and cleaning , all at the same time. I have stopped watching so much tv and being on the internet while at home because I realized I was on there too much and was not getting stuff done around the house. I felt like I was wasting time. But now looking at this article I have made myself worse becasue Im not relaxing doing something I enjoy doing like play a facebook game. While Im at work I think of stuff I wish I was doing at home. And Im not the only one my co-worker said the same I did find it intersting.

My diet was not too bad today I put on a couple pounds but that is typical this time of the month so im not sweating it I know in a couple days it will come right back off and then some. At least I have done that in the past. A co-worker gave me a red hot sausage today to try. I love trying new foods and I usually like most of them but not this. It was Spicy Hot. and I thought it was rather plain flavor. Maybe cooked in a dish it would be good anyhow I only took enough to know what it taste like.
I have decided ( here is my chronic stress in action I have planned out my weekend) to work on my flower beds saturday. It's suppose to be nice and Im tired of william threatening to take a weedeater to them. It is going to be a lot of work. I have 5 flower beds and a watergarden with fish and frogs. I would like to get a load of mulch but not sure If i will have time for that . Then sunday Im going to work on a quilt. I got 2 more orders today so i need to get working. normaly they do not take that longbut normally i make small quilts the twins just take a long time. especially when you really can only work on them on weekends.
Rebekah had another good night and morning. so we are going to keep working on it. I gave her a bath for the first time in the sink today she was so cute I took some pictures. One of my cutest pictures when i was that age was getting a bath in the sink.

    I agree the gardening will be a good thing, but also keep in mind that just doing NOTHING is OK too! It sounds like you have a very hectic life, so make sure you carve out some "me" time and some of that needs to be "nothing".

    Just my 2 cents....

    You need to take a break and enjoy your daughter and calm down, stress can be a killer I know I've been dealing with it for a long time and lately it's gotten to be at a dangerous level and even had to seek counseling ( I mean when you have a hysterectomy and still bleed from stress that's not good).
    You haven't been getting much sleep you don't want to run yourself down and you need to write a list of a few things that need to be done for the day and then forget about the rest your not a machine!
    Sometimes we don't realize what's important to us until it's way to late, you have a little one that needs mommy healthy. You need to make time for you!
    I can so relate to you, I see so much of myself in what you write and believe me you need to take a break not only for piece of mind but for you health in the long run...
    Go sit by the water garden with that little one and just breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the beauty that you've created in your yard. Sometimes we create something beautiful and then don't take the time to enjoy.
    Also thank you for the goodie you sent to me emoticon
