Not good!

Monday, October 29, 2012

This past 2 weeks has been complete crap! I have regained almost 5 pounds because of it... My husband lost his job, so now I am supporting us. We are hoping he will get unemplyment but it is not guarenteed. So I am stressing out about our money situation. I have been having back issues lately, so i had to call off of work once this week, which will give us even LESS money. I couldn't afford to call off, but I was in too much pain to go. My husband fell and gashed his head open, so that was even more money we had to spend by going to the doctor.. And to add the topping on the cake, when I went to six flags with my family over the weekend, I was too big for one of my favorite coasters. I am just SO stressed out about everything right now. I hate myself, and everything. I feel like I am never going to lose the rest of my weight because of all of my stress lately, I am just going to gain it all back. I don't know how we are going to be able to afford anything, let alone pay our bills. I am so stressed.... I hate life right now.

    So sorry for all the stressers in your life. As angry as you are, I hope you care for yourself so it doesn't get worst for you.

    I am so sorry you are going through this. There are a lot of us in the same spot. It is so hard to think positive when all of this is coming down on you. Think about your health and know you have to take care of yourself. If we don't have our health we have nothing. All the money in the world will not mean anything if we can not live our life healthy enough to enjoy it. I know you have heard is before, but it it true. I had the time and money to travel and could not because I was in so much pain with my knees. So,I watched other people have fun and go. When I was younger I didn't have time or money to do anything. I cooked fattening foods for comfort and ate it. Then when I I had time and money I couldn't because I was too fat and hurt all over because of the overweight. Things are going to get better. You are young and have a whole life ahead of you. So, you have to treat your body right. So you will be able to enjoy the good times when they come along. That doesn't pay the bills right now, but that is a reason to try to be healthy right now. You may not be able to get healthy when you get older because of how you treat your body right now.
    I pray that your husband get a job or some help with unemployment. List all the good things in your life right now and concentrate and them. It is so hard when it seems as if your life is falling part. I used my faith to help me get through times like this. I don't know if you can do that or not. I hope you have faith in an higher powder. It can make a difference in our life. Hugs, Judy

    Hi. I am so sorry that you are experiencing bad times and having so much stress. I also am in a one income family and sometimes it is just hard to make ends meet. So I understand where you are coming from. Hopefully your husband will be able to get some sort of unemployment benefits. And don't be too hard on yourself. You can do this. You have to find some way to manage your stress. I manage mine with deep breathing for three minutes at a time (or longer if I need it to feel better). It is amazing how just breathing can help to calm you down. Writing in a journal or blogging like you have done can also help you to release some stress. Please know that there are people who care about you. I always try to think that what doesn't kill me makes me that much stronger. I hope you get through your rough time. Remember that if you get off track, just regroup and vow to get back on track the next day. Be kind to yourself now because you are going through a lot. I wish you all the best.
