Pity party blog

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Ever get so frustrated that all you want to do is complain? I'm pretty much there today.
It started with a couple cousins commenting on facebook that it's so sad that a cousin of theirs has very little family that will have anything to do with him.
I know this family that they're talking about -wonderful people. Wonderful! What they know is only what he has told them. They don't know the others' side(s) of the story. What he has done/said to the family -it's mighty awful. I've seen it, I've heard it sooooo many times over the years. It's really sad. To tell them though- why bother- the "gossip" would just get more steam and nothing would turn out for the good. It's just hard not to talk about it because it's so bottled up inside. I did get to talk about it with one family member who understands and agrees it's best not to share with them the other side of the story. Anyhoo, writing helps too. I did pray on it as well.
I want nothing to do with him, and yet I do care about him. He is in the hospital and so I am praying for him.
Then there is the fact that, as most know, I'm pretty limited on what I can eat, due to allergies. Ever since I threw up twice last week, finding out I'm allergic to zucchini too, and it being shakes that I had had, I can't seem to stomach shakes. Maybe it's mainly the overly sweet protein powder I finally found that I don't seem to be allergic to (I only used that one for that second shake last week) or maybe it's all in my head.
I don't know what else I can have when I need to be away from the house though, anything that I can manage to eat quickly enough before break is over at any rate.
It was also celery that I'd had in those shakes... so I am avoiding that too....
I'm kinda down to peppers, onion, mushrooms and cucumbers for veggies. Maybe some tomato, broccoli and cauliflower at times. I'm rather bored...
Yeah, let's call it a pity party. That fits.
Okay, so let's not stay there. I did go neaten up my kitchen to blow off some steam. That was productive.
I am looking forward to what family I can see tomorrow.
Looking forward to hopefully weighing in less this Saturday.
Okay, I was just given this by the relative I was sharing with- perfect end to this pity party. :) You should copy and paste and listen to the song too. :)

    As they say you can pick your friends but not your family. If they say anything then I would say you only hear one side and there is always two sides of the story.

    Family can be so tough some times, I'm sorry that this has gotten you down. Hang in there!
    Such a bummer about the stuff with the shakes, etc. Have you tried doing some different recipes or cooking methods for the veggies you feel comfortable eating still? Unfortunately I could eat the same things over & over so I'm probably no help LOL

    We ALL have days that are down, you're entitled! Onward and upward!

    We all need a pity party one in a while. Just vent - get it out. Then you can move on.

    Dont' beat yourself up :) We all need to vent and let out those feelings & it's always difficult when family is involved. Now that you've let it all out, try to shake off those feelings of disappointment/disgust/sadness and try to focus on something positive & uplifting. It helps, really! I hope that you are on an upswing soon - be happy & do something nice for yourself. And have a lovely Thanksgiving!
