Feeling great, but sick!
Saturday, October 06, 2007
Sounds strange, right? Well, I'm feeling great because I lost 4 pounds this week. Thanks to all my amazing spark friends and all the support they gave me during the "poor me's" I was able to get back in the game and lose, lose, lose. Unfortunately I am sick. I'm pretty sure Carrie gave it to me, I'll get her back don't worry!
I was thinking about what might of happened to me when I went on a binge at the fair. I have suffered from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) for years. Even though I take medication, it still sometimes really bothers me. Now that I think back, I definitely had some signs that I was getting depressed. Unfortunately when you are in the middle of feeling like that, you can't see your way out of a wet paper bag! I need to get my light box down from the attic and have it at the ready. It's funny, its something I never talk about but here I feel like I can share anything. If you don't know anyone who has it, or don't have it yourself, it can sound pretty weird and made up. Trust me friends, as soon as the days get shorter and we lose light I can FEEL it. Of course one of the symptoms is craving carbs which doesn't help. It doesn't matter because I am feeling so so so much better.
Thanks for all your love and support and for not letting me disappear!
