Depressed and trying to make a come back
Wednesday, June 18, 2014
I have not made a blog entry or done very much posting for awhile. I have been very depressed and stressed. I have gained weight. I still walk and keep adding steps with fitbit but I eat too much. Its been hard for me since my oldest son is still not speaking to me, I lost my mom to cancer, two of my teens are having problems, finances have been hard because of reduced hours at work due to low patient census. My son Kyle was supposed to graduate last May. Because hes lazy and unmotivated he has 2 more on line credit recovery courses to do before he can graduate. I had to pay $160 for those. He had 3 other credit recovery courses before this one. He won't work, doesn't get up until 2 or 3 in the afternoon, and I have to beg him to work on his high school courses. His dad and I usually have a great marriage but we have had arguments over Kyle. My daughter Elizabeth has had depression and a explosive temper since my mothers death. I haven't figured out all the answers to all these problems yet but I'm going to try to manage my stress better. I'm going to quit eating for comfort. I'm going to come up with a list of things to do when stressed- take a walk, post a blog, talk to a friend etc. I'm going to stay in touch with friends instead of withdrawing into myself. If anyone has any support or advice to offer I would appreciate it.
