still here..help...life crisis food response
Thursday, September 29, 2016
day 3 back, but didn't make it on yesterday...multiple life crisis...family in Er, another in ICU. I got knocked off my stability. I was already overstressed...4 hrs of psychological testing of 13 yr old after she had a stroke. The calls and health watch of close family shook me to the core, neither was expected. My urge to get potatoe chips was strong. I survived 2 store stops and bought no junk!
I did buy cauliflower, peppers, cilantro, corn, brewers yeast, kamut... put chicken broth into crockpot...
then my partner came home, very bad day at work, we were tanking together, kid was brain exhausted from difficult testing...partner said Mc ds for ease...I caved, I only got 2 cheeseburgers...2, not one. nothing else, but still it was not fulfilling. it was yuck. came home to crockpot brewing many vegies into barley vegie soup, had 1 cup at 9pm and reminded myself how rich and sustaining this food is...
our mc D stops are few and far between at this point, but we need to extinquish them, nothing there is redeemable.
how do others approach the burned out in a car hungry issue? We travel 100 miles one way to kids drs many times a month, often under great stress and little time to prep.
