Pressing On

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Hanging in there. Thanks for all the encouragement. I'm still dealing with the funk. I was off work sick some extra sleep...which I think I needed. It was nice to have some time alone today to think through things. But I don't think I resolved anything except to maybe get some perspective and realizations...which is a start I guess.

I had a good walk with Mia today and got all my steps and stairs in and ate in range. I wonder if maybe I need to try to move away from my feeling/emotional side and stay in my logical side...since I'm getting so much negative/dark feelings from the emotional side right now. It's really hard to shake and deal maybe I just need to leave's not a good place to be.

I'm glad I'm continuing to eat in range regardless of the's a victory for me. I think the PTSD is rearing it's ugly head a bit. So, just continuing to "deal with it" and hang in there.

Hope you all had a good day. Keep up the good work! Thanks again for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Stay tough, GF, and ride this out. Check out foods that lift one's mood. Stay busy. It helps.

    Sometimes a break from the emotion is a good thing. I've used the fake it til you make it mode to get through more than once. The fact that you are keeping up with your walking, etc, is a good thing. GAining some perspective is good too. Slow steps forward are betterthan quick slides backwards.

    Sounds like you are doing a good job dealing with it, even though it's not resolved, you are still moving forward with your plan. Hope you feel better soon.

    Depression can be treated. Please check in with your doctor to see how he can help. We all need a little help and support sometimes. Exercise is always good too. Hang in there. emoticon

    I hope you're journaling your thoughts & feelings Cathy. They need to go somewhere. Even better, if you have a trusted friend, talk & get those feelings out. Sometimes we give the feelings/emotions too much power when we try to ignore or shun them away...they just seem to loom & even get stronger. Or they fester & come out in others ways that make us physically sick. If need be, please seek professional help to work through what's "eating you". Most insurance plans cover psychotherapy...& it can be the best medicine! It takes courage to face the demons that haunt you. Trust me, I know...I've been there. The best thing I ever did was seek treatment & get the help I needed. Do it for yourself & those that love you.

    You are in my thoughts. I hope you feel better soon... emoticon

    So many of us are having "bad days". It is nice weather and we should be enjoying life, but there are so many distractions. We were discussing what life would be like had Adam and Eve not disobeyed in the garden. Well, as frail as I am and prone to look at it from a different angle, I would have done the same thing. So we can't blame our predecessors for our problems. We need to get help where we can. "My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth." I am sure your walk helped clear your head and mood. emoticon
