Hi Chris sorry that you are hurting with sciatica. Are you able to walk around on it? When I get it (rarely) I find that I cannot even put any weight on it. I had to use crutches a couple of times and exercise slowly to increase my mobility. How long does it last with you?

I hope you are getting better and not in too much pain. I will be thinking of you.

Kris - I hope you feel better soon!

I set my alarm last night for 4:10 pm rather than am. So at 4:45, BF came in and said "you aren't going to the gym?" I suppose I could have rushed like mad to get ready and get there before our class started. But that didn't sound like a good way to start the day. So I got up and cleaned the kitchen up a bit and am checking in here. Then I'm off to do Pilates.

Chiro at my lunch break and then my accupunturist at 5:15. It is going to be a long day

LADYDUO - I remember a long time ago you mentioning that you wanted to clear a lot of the old stuff out of the freezer - I am glad that you are now getting that opportunity :-) Where it comes to your loneliness, are you able to call your sister as well? Having a talk-back radio on is good because you hear conversations going on. Talking to your cats is also really good. This is something that you WILL get used to, but it does take time. The fact that your meds are down too won't be helping things any. Is your Dr able to give you more of one of the meds to tide you over?

Sam - my daughter has been in the same boat as you re the dentist. I have a problem with my teeth but not because of lack of brushing, rather too much hard brushing. I went to the Dentist a few years ago after having not been for about 8 years. I told him that the plaque was annoying me and asked him to remove it. He had a good look and told me that I didn't have any plaque, then he told me what direction I brushed my teeth. It turns out that what I thought was plaque was what remained of the enamel on my teeth. My over-zealousness was actually removing it :-( Now I only brush twice a day, and use the softest toothbrush with warm water (less harsh on teeth.)

Jen M. - when my son was working really long hours, he would often fall asleep at work (including on the office floor.) He even went into the staff room to have a lie down and when he woke up a long time later, discovered his bosses having a meeting around him - LOL! Hope you slept better last night! Writing down the questions you want to ask is a really good idea! Good luck with it.

Kim - it sounds like you are both coming to the right decision. I really believe that a lot of issues are the "what-if's and but's" - by discussing this like you both obviously have you are looking at things realistically rather than passionately, and in this case it is a good thing!

NASFKAB - when did you break your arm? I hope that it heals very soon. I know the feeling - when I fractured my clavicle a few years ago (and ribs) it was a long time before I could actually USE my arm. I could use my hand a little, but anything that involved movement at the shoulders and the pain was excruciating. It was 3 months before I was able to drive again :-(

BUDDHANGELA - you obviously did the RIGHT thing when you took your friend to the ER so don't have any regrets. What she is doing and saying is the result of her mental condition. A young friend of mine - the same age as my daughter - had the same thing happen to her. She was sectioned and in hospital for a long time - it was weeks before she stopped blaming her mother, MIL and partner and anyone else she could think of for having her sectioned. Now that she is on meds and being monitored, still against her will, she sees things much more clearly. She now acknowledges that yes, she DID need help. She just thinks that she doesn't need it NOW. Now is the time to concentrate on YOU. Your friend is safe and being looked after properly so try to put her irrational comments aside and tell yourself you did the right thing and you will do it again WITHOUT any regrets! If you have a therapist, phone and make an urgent appointment - if not and you still feel the urge, you can either phone a help-line or present to your nearest Emergency Department. Apart from that, if you don't' have a therapist, ensure that you contact your Dr and discuss this with him/her and get a referral to someone. BIG hugs to you xx

I have been in lots of pain the last couple days with sciatica. As a result yesterday morning I was awake 0315hrs and up, and this morning was awake and up very early again. It hasn't been quite so bad today but still not good:-( Now it is time for me to get my Hot Chocolate and toddle off to bed!

Nite all,
Kris

Hi Ladyduo, I am sorry that your having problems with the insurance company, don't they realize that we cannot stop our meds cold turkey and that we might withdrawal systems.

That is not the case with Trazadone. It is one of the safest medications for sleeping and you can stop at any time.
I went to my new dr. today. I asked here if any of my meds cause weight gain and she replied that Yes Trazadone maybe the culprit. I will not stop taking it as I really enjoy getting a good night's rest. You wake up feeling so much better in the morning.

I hope that your problem is solved quickly. I understand that you are lonely, so was I. But with SP I no longer feel this way. I feel that I have met a great bunch of people and just
talking with them makes me feel better.

Take care. Dianne

Dianne, thank you for your good wishes. I didn't sleep well last night, but today is still better.

Sam, I love your sense of humor and how you support everyone! :)

Kim, welcome to the club. I have the gum problems, too. In my case, what helped (besides being more diligent in taking care of my teeth) is that I'm using toothpaste made with neem oil and mouthwash that alternates between being sage and tea tree oil-based. When I went in for my cleaning, the hygienist told me my gums are much, much better now. I'll continue to work on being better about brushing and flossing (flossing hurts, which is why I had not been doing it, but I need to get over that.) I think mine may have a genetic component, too, because my mom had similar problems at my age. I'm sorry you're going through it. It's awful!

Gayle, you are awesome. :)

Buddhangela, no one will judge you here, as others have said. All of us here have various types of issues, and this Team is for support. What you did for your friend was amazingly compassionate. She may not see it now, and maybe not ever, but you know in your heart that you did the right thing. If you can hold onto that, I hope you can resist cutting. *hugs*

LadyDuo, I don't remember whether or not you are an "animal person." I know you have the cats, and I know you like them, but I don't know whether you are into animals the way, for example, I am. I find that, when I get down on the floor and snuggle, pet, and play with my kitties, he helps me feel better. When I was lonely, it helped with the lonliness, and it helped to pass the time. I realize not everyone is THAT into animals, but I thought it could help if you have a good bond with them. I realize it's not the same as human company, but it might help. Can you call your counselor and get her to run interference with the insurance company? They are just trying to make/save a buck. Ugh! Can you talk to your best friend online or on the phone? I know it's not the same as having someone there, but maybe talking to someone you KNOW is on your side will help. *hugs*

I didn't sleep well last night, even with bed time tea. (I'm going to take something stronger tonight.) I was up until 1:30am, but I spent my time looking at employment/temp agencies, and I sent my resume to three of them. We'll see how it goes.

Work is less annoying today, and I think that's because I know I'm getting more active in my job search. Plus, a time sensitive item is off my desk.

Everyone have a good day!
Jen M.

LADYDUO...What you are feeling is very normal. When i first lived on my own it took me a long time to adjust but you are doing it! You need to pat yourself on the back. You are meant to be happy it is just a time of adjustment. I'm sorry that you are having issues with your medication. I have been on two different doses of Wellbutrin XL at the same time. My doctor had to go to bat for me. Can you ask your doctor to talk to the insurance company? Please try and take the trazodone so that you will be able to sleep. THere is nothing wrong in taking meds. They are prescribed to help you.You can do this! I believe in you!!!

Hi all. Well I'm out of my strong anti-depressant. Have been for a couple of days. Insureance is messing with me. All of a sudden they have an issue with me taking two different doses of the same medicine. So I've been out since Sunday. I'm starting to feel the effect of not having it and not sleeping well on top of it. I think tonight I will actively try to take the Trazadone. But I'm feeling down and ready to cry. On top of it all I'm lonely. I didn't think about this when I wanted to move out. I think it would have been way worse because at least now I have the cats. But I'm lonely and I don't know what to do. Last night I called my mom. Which only made her worry more about me. I think I want to cry. Maybe I'm not suppose to be happy.

Doing the right thing is sometimes very painful but i understand what you are saying about wanting to cut. I'm a cutter and use it as a stress reliever also. But you know it really causes more stress because if you are like me once you cut you feel guilty like why did i do that. It creates a vicious circle that takes you no where. One of the things that i do is tell myself i will wait five minutres and then cut if i still feel the need. Then i get busy distracting myself. When five minutes is up i repeat the five minutes and keep going until the need to cut passes. It does not always work but most of the time it does. I'm not telling you what to do, just sharing something that has helped me. Btw...I am older than you and still cut on occasion. Hope this helps.

To the dear one that broke her arm. I feel for you. I broke the top of my humerus bone on my right arm last year. Because of the situation i had to wait six weeks before they did surgery and then it was so bad that they had to put a six inch metal plate in my arm. It is so painful. I hope that you will heal properly and not be in such intense pain. The good news is that i can now write with both my hands!

Hey, We are here for you. You can share anything here. I know noone here is judgemental. I know how hard what you are going through is. I was on the other side. I got the intervention...Yes she will get over it. It may not happen soon, BUT You can't let this take you to the bad place. No matter how much we love our friends...WE have to come first. YOu need to take care of you. Do you have a friend or family member who could talk with you or come over and listen..? Do you have a therapist? Listen...YOU have done all you can for your friend. You are a great friend I can tell and you should focus on that. She is gonna say all sorts of things, That she really doesn't mean and they are gonna be hurtful...But she is not herself. Remember that. Keep your head up and know we care about you! Cutting yourself, will not help her...But it will hurt you. And noone is worth hurting yourself. Hugs and prayers

Hey ya'll. It's been a while but I needed to post today. Yesterday I did a intervention for a friend to get her some help, and I ended up the one who took her to the ER and checked her into the hospital. I hated to do it, but it is what she needs. Well, she called me this morning and she's so angry and fighting the system, fighting me, feeling like everything she's made for herself will be gone when she gets out. I want to cut myself so badly, but I've resisted the urge. She hates me now and I understand that she'll get over it once she's got her meds online and she's feeling better, but I feel miserable. I'm 42 years old, I shouldn't still be cutting! But I'm afraid that's what's going to happen. I hope talking about that doesn't freak anyone out. It's just an old way I used to deal with stressful situations like this one. I need some encouragement. I know I did the right thing, but it's so painful!

Hi NASFKAB, so sorry to hear that you broke your arm. What happened? It is amazing how little we appreciate something until we do not have it anymore. Take real care of yourself. Enjoy the pampering you are receiving. It probably does not happen very often.

Hope your pain does not last too long. I will be thinking of your.Dianne

But I am the non-working broke daughter, so...LOL...Plus I like the guy too, He is a nice, good and honest man...He is just overbooked. So...Such is life. The ol' Liver is out of control this morning...I would like to go to walmart and get a new one...But this is an old walmart and we never get the good stuff...small town..you know...LOL. Oh if It were only that easy...Anywho I am in good spirits and nothing is gonna get me down. So...On with the day.

Dianne...Thank you and you have a lovely day as well!

Nas...Bless your heart! I know that must be rough! I pray it heals good and fast!!

Kim...LOL...I am definately a non-bush beater! hahahahaha...I think everything you said is great and smart. Not leaving yourself vulnerable and I am so proud of you! I wish I had been that smart back then...Bless your heart about the dental...YUCK...Hate dental problems...I will ask for a sonic care for christmas!!! I have wondered about them often...Because I will do anything to save them...I do not want dentures at 30...eventhough I know I am going to have to...I want to hold out...I enjoy eating things that dentures would not like, so...pray I hold on to those teeth! lol...

Jen...I just hate that you are having a bad day...I will pray that your day turns around and that your work stops being stupid...Feel better. Try not to stress or you will bring on a flare up, I know with my pain, stress is a huge factor...easier said than done I know tho.

Dianne - that was too funny. Thanks for the laugh

Ladyduo - you are not hopeless! You are not feeling anything that the rest of us have not also felt. And you are making great progress.

Jen - good luck with the job search. I've done temp work between jobs and I actually liked it. There is something to be said for not being somewhere long enough to get sucked into the work drama. I hope you find a great perm. job soon.

Sam - Girlfriend, you kill me! I love that you don't beat around the bush. Yes, we have a very one sided relationship when it comes to anger and forgiveness. Most days it's like raising someone else's child. I haven't helped myself much by putting up with it on small matters for the past 10 years. Now that it's big stuff, it's harder to make my point. I have made plans to move on. He is buying me out of my half of the house before the end of they year. This is a financial decision that we came to mostly unrelated to our relationship issues. Although I doubt that this is a choice either of us would have considered if we thought "this" was healthy. At this point, I'm going to continue to live here, but I am going to begin to demand that we deal with things or cut the cord. We still share a bedroom - and I can't change that until after Thanksgiving. My parents are coming down and will need the spare room. But once that is done - I am going to move upstairs. If he wants to make it work, then he'll have to meet me half way. If moving upstairs doesn't put the fear into him, then I'll know it's time to move. And I'll have the downpayment cash since he'll have already bought my out.

Oh - and I also have periodontal disease. I have had to have 2 scalings / deep cleanings (about 6 years apart.) If you can swing the $, get yourself a SoniCare toothbrush. i have the one with "floss action" and it has made a huge difference.

I hope everyone is doing well!

Of course your not hopeless. No one should feel hopeless. Just for a quick laugh, I read this in my dh newsletter from day program.

A New Years' Prayer

God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Try to get a good night's sleep. I'll be thinking of you. Dianne

Dianne- I'm down to taking 100mg of Trazadone. I had been taking 200 but after I got a c-pap machine I don't seem to need that much. There's no alarm which is my problem. I don't do groups. I'm the person who folds into the walls and no one notices me. That and in a group of more than three I start to panic. Guess I'm hopeless.

Hi, gang. I hope everyone had a decent weekend. For those who did not, I'm sorry.

I haven't felt much like posting today. Work started irritating me from the moment I got here, and I'm just not in a good mood today (also didn't sleep well.)

I will be back tomorrow,when hopefully I'll be feeling a bit better. My vacation next week can't come soon enough!

On the up side, I did start looking at temp agencies today. When I get home, I'll write down some phone #'s for the ones that look good and a list of questions.

I SO need to get away from this job!

Jen M.

Do you have an alarm system in your home. I had one when I still had the house. It would even tell me which door was opening (so I could figure out who was going where quickly). The Trazadone is not so strong that you will not waken if you hear a disturbance. I still had my "mommy ear" when I was using it. I know you are frighten but believe me I would rather sleep. After a good sleep you will feel so energized in the morning. I do not have any residual effects when I get up in the morning. What dose are you taking? I guess you do not have free clinic that desensities you from your panic and anxiety attacks. Now a days you can even get help with accupuncture. Do you have a small group in your area that get together as a support team? That is just a few things that come to mind. I feel for you. Nothing worse than not sleeping. You are in my prayers.

Good afternoon everyone. I have had quite a day. Went to the dentist...yuck...had to get the 5th silver cap in less than 6 months...no biggie...I am so thankful my parents are sweet and able financially to pay for them. Thank God! So that is fine...But today the dentist told me that I have what is going to turn into gum disease as well...We are gonna fight it by having thorough cleaning and some other thing I can't remember something about de briding or something...and then I have to brush more and better and floss and so...nice...I was unaware my brushing wasn't up to par...Oh well Thank God I have a chance to turn it around. NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS....I have been accepted to recieve funding to go to school to be a Vet Tech. It is a 2yr. Associates degree...I am nervous, and scared and excited and thankful...I will start very soon as in a week probably...

Bridgette...This is a crazy suggestion...but I feel like it might work...what about each of you buying your own groceries for awhile so that he can see he is being ridiculous. Men are soooo......well lots of things...I will be nice.

Kim...Let me reiterate what I just said...men....grrrrrrrrr. Funny how they do something and it is ok. Or if it isn't, they still expect you to forgive and forget. I feel for you. I went through the exact same thing with my ex husband. I hope you are able to salvage your love and move on...I am so happy that you are mentally in a place where if you have to move on, you can. I do not want to seem insensitive because I am no, But Have you thought that maybe it might be better to go ahead and start moving on? Sadly getting SOME people to admit their wrongs and change the way they handle things, to forgive and forget Is NEarly impossible. It seems to be much easier for women to forgive and forget. I am so not trying to be one way you know?... It is just a fact, In MY opinion. I pray for you and think of you and hope that this situation works out for the best and I believe it will. Hugs!!! OH yeah...And you better believe If I fall out and have a super cutie have to help me out, I will come straight home and give allllll the details!! LOL...Too funny!

Linnae...I pray you are able to sleep better and that your anxiety lessens.

Everyone have a good evening! I am thinking of you all and everyone I didn't post to individually, I have ya'll on my mind!

Sam emoticon

I will lose weight...I will be in shape...Love diet food..Yum Yummy...Love water...Oh yum..good...good..yes...delicious...Lol...
well If you think it and say it...It will come true!!

Dianne- I'm on Trazadone too but I havn't been taking. I'm still afriad something is going to happen while I'm trying to sleep. I know I need to just get over it, but it's not that easy. I almost took it last night but chicken out. The cat woke me at 5am. I know I really need to get back to my Trazadone, maybe tonight.

I have panic attacks because I'm afraid of people. THey scare me in person. So when I go for the mail I'm thinking people can see me and stuff. I'm safe in the house no one can see me and judge me or make fun of me. Outside people can see me and stuff. I can be hurt outside. I don't like to hurt.

I don't use the SP menu thing. I don't know why it just didn't seem fesible at first. What with my parents being here. I'm also a very picky eater. So I try to find good for me food that I'll eat. I need to get back to keep track of me food. But I try to keep up on it offline.

I do paint. But I haven't done so in years because my parents wouldn't keep a place for me to paint clean. Once they get that table clean off I am so painting agian. I use oil paints. But mostly I work in color pencils.

Today I emptied out seven container from the freezer. They'd been in the freezer a long time so they needed to go. I get mom and dad to take more stuff and then the freezer can begin to be defrosted or at least I can chip it out. I even started my January Fairy. But I hated the wings so I'll have to think on that. Anyways I think I'll try a little writing today too.

Hi Ladyduo, I am sorry that you are having a hard time sleeping. I have been on 150 mg of Trazadone since 1970's. My son never slept the night so even when it was my dh turn to get up, I always got up to. Doctor could see depression starting in and put me on Trazadone. I sleep exactly 7 hrs everyday.

Do you know why you are having panic attacks?

Here in Montreal, it is a beautiful sunny day and abnormally warm for this time of the year.
A bit windy though. Went on my walk this a.m. so at least got some exercise in.

As far as your menu - start off with whatever meat, fish, fruits & veggies that are in season and work you menus around that. Are you using the menu helper at SP? I find that very helpful. At least this way I know how many carb, proteins & fats I consume and how much I should be eating.

Your idea of doing a calendar with fairies is a great idea. Do you also paint in oil or pastels?

Well, keep on dancing and each day will get a little better. Take care of yourself
Dianne

Unfortunately some people (men particularly) can't see past TODAY'S food. They can't seem to relate to the fact that THIS is what we - meaning THEM, too - eat in a week. My hubby annoys the s**t out of me if he goes with me to buy the groceries. After a couple of aisles, he insists there is enough there and we can go now. That has only covered the fruit/vege and 1/2 doz other items. I pointed out if I did this he wouldn't have his bread, spaghetti, peanut butter, margarine, eggs, cheese, yoghurt, cereal bars etc. etc. Generally he goes off then and reads some magazines in the rack. Fortunately he doesn't go off at me for COOKING all the stuff well ahead of time because he often goes and gets them out of the freezer as a "go to" snack. In fact, sometimes he has bitched if his lot has run out. I say "his" because he has to have a very low residue diet, and I have to have a very high fibre diet, so I cook his and mine separately.

Perhaps if you write down or show him some printouts of what you eat each day he will get the picture. Also, are you doing some for him for the week, too? If not, by doing so it could take the heat off you!

With my veges I get a mix of fresh/frozen and concentrate on the fresh first, then the frozen once that has run out. (Frozen is often cheaper with the basics.) Fortunately I have some fruit trees so when they fruit really well, I can freeze them in margarine containers. Great for smoothies or desserts:-)

Got into a huge fight with the DH yesterday about me making my work lunches for the week.
Sometimes he's fine but others, like yesterday, he's not. He freaks out about the aount of food that is gone when I am cooking for the week. "Leave some for everybody else!!" "I've never seen anybody lay waste to food like you do!!"
What am I supposed to do? I am making 5 days worth of food!! If it's gone when I am done, I will buy more, a $2 head of cauliflower is not going to break our bank, ya know?? He's got some block about food. he's got to pend all he's got for the month all at once, then if it goes bad, it's all my fault, and if it gets eaten, that's my fault too.
Help!!!!!!!

Dedication weighs ounces, regret weighs tons!

Hi all. Well I slept til 7 this morning, but I was up several times through the night. I think I might risk a pill tonight. I really need a night of uninterupted sleep. These little one hour naps are just not cutting it. I've been busy this morning watering plants and doing laundry. Even danced a little.
Chris- I have a radio that plays music when I go to sleep it always seems to help. I still panic when I go to get the mail. Though I think its starting to go down. That is until a car goes by. And my doc sugested that I cut my pill in half too. I might try that. Its not so much getting to sleep but staying asleep longer than an hour or two.

The wind is blowing here and its cold. Its definately fall as the leaves fall with every gust of wind. Though it seems more like the leaves are dancing than falling. I've been trying to come up with a menu for two weeks and its not going to well. I'm finding it frustrating. I'm writing my shopping list with it. So far that is pretty small.

I felt like starting a new drawing but when I sat down to do it I was suddenly hit with not wanting to do it. I hope later I can get to it. I think I've decided to do the months of the year with fairies.

Well I guess I'll go back to watching movies and doing laundry. I think I miss my parents how about that.

Chris - I am always impressed with your well thought out and wise posts. We are so blessed to have you among our group. Thank you for taking the time to look deep and offer so much!

I do think that you have picked up on something. BF is conflicted. He is a black/white kind of guy. He did some things to me - I did some stuff to him - and we further hurt each other with some words said in the heat of hurt and anger. In his black/white world, these were unforgivable events. But he is conflicted because a part of him (and I actually think the bigger part of him) wants to forgive and forget. And I think a part of him feels guilty but he is unable to admit that what he did was wrong. He has refused to go to counseling and will not talk about how he feels (except on a very few occasions.) I think that he is avoiding having fun together because that further complicates his desire to be angry. If we have fun and he has to realize that he really does love me - then he is going to have to face up to what he did and deal with that. As well as make a choice to forgive me for what hurts I have caused.

Sam - I am really proud of you too! Starting to run can be kind of scary. If you ever "drop out" to meet some cutie, you have to let us know!

Jen - thinking of you and your job search

Thinking of many of you today - Dot, Gayle, Ladyduo, Enaid, Chris .... and more. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Sam - I would have been more than "a little angry" after traveling all that way to be told that! It was just as well you DID go, tho'! BTW - WE are proud of you TOO :-) GOOD one for getting your outside exercise :-D IF the trash guys are mmmm cute, well m-a-y-b-e you COULD suddenly need to be driven home - BUT I never said that - LOL!

Jen M - sounds like a good trade .... photos for resume :-) Sorry you had to cancel out on the dinner group, but health comes first!

KAYLEIGHJ21 - welcome to our family :-) One thing has crossed my mind is this; are you being treated for depression? Meds and/or therapy? If not, then you may find them very beneficial, and if you are, then is it time for a medication review? If you find that you don't have the energy to have a bath/shower, then having a good spongedown while standing at the handbasin is a good way of freshing yourself up without zapping all your energy. That in itself may help you. IF you have Lavender or Rosemary around you, try putting some in a jug of hot water and zap it in the microwave for a few minutes. Let it cool then strain it. The liquid makes a really good refresher added to the handbasin or bath water. The Rosemary particularly is good at opening up the senses and reinvigorating you. It is also a very good hair rinse but used very diluted with a squirt of lemon juice in it!

LADYDUO - a VERY belated "Happy Birthday" to you! Maybe your parents are just real frugal where it comes to things and the old stuff they left you with, they don't really realize how unsuitable they are because they gradually went. Where it comes to the toaster, maybe they didn't use it much for it to have sunk in that it burns! That in itself is a safety issue, so you have done the right thing! How did you get on with the mail? As far as your taking a pill to help you sleep is concerned, I find that things will still wake me up when necessary, but it just helps me get off to sleep properly. Are you able to halve the pill so that it isn't so hard on you? I usually just take a 1/2 when I need something. Have tonight to help sleep through hip burn. It will be working VERY soon - LOL! Anyway, where it comes to your anxiety, it will more than likely start to reduce soon, because you will be getting more accustomed to being mostly on your own. Have you thought about putting a talk-back station on your radio on, so that it plays very softly! That can actually help make you feel you aren't on your own!

Dot - hopefully you are feeling better now! BIG hugs to you XX

Same - YES re the dry skin. There are a couple or three things that I do which helps. One is I take a LOT of Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplements (check with Dr first because it CAN interact with some meds) but I take them re very low HDL Cholesterol, but the skin is a positive pay-off. Another thing I do is NOT use soaps on my skin. The other thing I do is instead of soaps, I use Emulsifying Ointment. You can either whisk it up into hot water and when it cools it is the texture of liquid soap, and good to put in one of those pump-action containers, OR you can use it as it is, but it takes longer to soak into the skin. I usually use the pump-action format, and when I am whisking it, I put in some perfume that doesn't affect me. That way when I rub it into my skin, it leaves a delicate fragrance, and it is a lot cheaper than using the perfume in the normal way. The emulsifying Ointment is also cheap as chips because it lasts a long time! Where it comes to my face, I only wash it once a day - but 2-3 times a day also wipe it with a damp cloth. My skin is really clear of blemishes. Also, ensure good nutrition and good hydration! It sounds like your MIL has been doing a bit of thinking. I wonder if your BIL has been influencing her in the past, as in NOT helping like perhaps she could have.

Gayle - it is a right bummer when we can't do what we would normally do, and the computer DOES impact on us a lot more than we realize!

Chris - I'm glad the Dr was helpful given that your job is overwhelming. You are quite right in that you aren't alone! Here you are NEVER alone!!

SANDJ716 - Hi - it's nice to have you here :-) Did your Dr do any bloods to see if there was a medical reason for that big weight gain in a relatively short period of time? Things like hypothyroidism can be partly responsible for it, and for depression. There are some other things it could be, too, so it is worth ensuring that they are checked. It sounds like you are benefiting from the therapy.

Dianne - from experience, this type of work can be physically very demanding. I remember when I first started to work in a Rest Home many years ago, I was across the room and saw one old lady start to fall. First thing I did was sprint across and caught her before she landing on the floor - I carried her across the room to a chair - by myself. She was 14 stone (196lb) I don't now how on earth I managed it but I did - I also had a few aches the following day! (Wonder why?)

Kim - I wonder if you and your BF's problem is actually related to NOT doing anything much together any more! Maybe that is why you enjoyed the drive and got on! Where it comes to the Jet Ski, as you said it is "in the family" and also it will be well used!

Hello Team!

I've been away on a mini trip up to South Carolina. BF and I went up to check on our camper and meet his uncle. His uncle bought our jetski. It was kind of a sad trip for me. We bought the jetski about 6 years ago and although we didn't use it a whole lot, it was one of the things that we did together and always enjoyed. When all our "troubles" started, we pretty much parked the thing and have not had it out in almost 2 years. So it made sense to sell it - and at least it is to family. They live on a lake in Virginia and their grandchildren are close so it will be well used.

We have also not been using the camper since the troubles started. We used to get away 3 or 4 times a year - at least a week once and then a few long weekends. Last year, we went in October or November to take the antifreeze out of the waterlines, wash and clean up - and then winterize it. That is pretty much all we did this year too. We drove 7 hours on Friday and then left this morning mid morning for another 7 hour drive home. We have pretty much decided that we will most likely sell the camper as well. Some of that is due to the fact that the campground is starting to be neglected. But the truth is - we just aren't that couple any more. We could have very easily gone hiking or something like that today, but BF doesn't seem to want to "do" anything with me. We go on errands or shopping or do training - but that's about it. We got along just fine and even chatted nicely during the ride and dare I say.... enjoyed each others company. I don't get it

So - I'm a bit sad. I guess I was kind of holding on to the idea that the jetski and maybe more so the camper were part of "our life" that we could go back to. I don't know what the future holds for us. At times, it seems like there is nothing good. But at other times, I get glimpses of what was. I am holding on to some hope that that may be coming back. I just wish it wasn't all so difficult and uncertain. Ugh!!!

- All that and I still feel pretty good. I am in a place mentally that I at least know that I'm going to be okay no matter what happens. That is a huge step for me. I year ago, I was suffocating in fear. And it's pretty darn hard to make any decisions under those circumstances.

On the upside, today I am feeling better than I have for a long while. I guess the increase in my meds has finally kicked in. I worked all of last week (from 3:00 pm to 9:00 am. I was taking care of 3 persons with severe disabilities. Everything went well except that one of the ladies who is obese fell into the bathtub instead of sitting on her special bath chair. It was not easy to get her out of the tub. I don't mind sitting with my x-clients but I find the physical energy required just isn't in me anymore. Woke up this morning and my body is screaming with joint, and back pain. It feels like I was lifting weighs (badly). But this too will pass and I did enjoy working with them again.

Have a really busy week coming up so I am really glad that my energy level is higher than it was before.

Morning all. Oh my goodness I got to sleep in until 6am. Isn't that GREAT! I thought it was. And I dozed off while watching CSI on cloo. Woke up again at 8:30. I started watching disater movies after breakfast. I love disater movies. And I'm also trying to come up with a menu. Which seems really hard for some reason. I don't have a lot of money so I'm trying to penny pinch. I'm starting to get a headache.

Hello All,

Sam, Congratulations on your run. I too got a laugh about the garbage men. That was probably a first. Glad that you were able to do it. Take it slow and you will be able to do it again. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Chris, I am so sorry that your health is preventing you to go to work. It is good that the doctor is taking good care of you and making sure that you get some rest too. I too have to leave one light on in the kitchen, and I have a wall plug in night light in the bathroom. I always make sure that they are on.

Ladyduo, Like everyone has said, "It is going to take sometime for you to get use to it". Leaving a light on will help you some. It is good that you are getting some cat naps in. At least it is some sleep. I know it isn't the length of time that you really need. Sometimes our bodies have actions that will help us to get through things. Try to stay calm. Do you read any? Or how about watching tv, or doing some of your art work. Maybe if you have a diary or writing book, you could do some of that. All these things are ideas that you could try, which might help you spend your time and take your mind off of being scaried. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that things get better for you.

Sand, It is very hard when you have to be the bread winner in a family. You do have a lot on your back, but you are headed in the right direction now. You must keep it up, you will be surprised to see the great progress that you will be making. Having to take care of a disabled person is very hard. You are a great person to be able to help your husband. Hopefully your daughter will find a job too, to help out.

This is an amazing team and I am sure that with our help you will be successful on losing your weight and feeling better about yourself. I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

I am still not feeling all that well, I don't know what it is, but I just feel blah!, I don't want to do anything and I feel really tired. I hope that it will go away pretty soon.

I am very sorry if I have left someone out. I will make sure that the prayers will include you too.

I hope that you all have a great weekend.

Good Morning to all my favorite peoples~ emoticon

Same...Glad you got a laugh over the garbage men...Laughter is the BEST medicine...I try to do it as much as I can!~And I do love when others can laugh with me!! Sounds like you are being pretty productive!! Being busy helps me so much. Make sure you take care of you and do some you time...You deserve it!!!

Chris and Sand...My thoughts and prayers are with you...I know how hard taking care of a disabled person is...Although It is something you don't think twice about and do out of love, It can be very taxing on you mentally and physically...A good therapist is a blessing!! Yes God is so AWESOME...He has saved me from the most horrible times...and death several times...He is there and cares and so do we...We will offer all the support we can...Take time for yourself...Remember if you don't take care of you...then there is noone to take care of everyone else...Hugs to you both

Love to all,
Sam emoticon

Sleeping with lights on. Since my husband's stroke in 2006 and since safety responsibility is on me, I have been leaving lights on. It helps a little. Chris

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.
LONG TERM GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight.Evening Eating Sabotage Myself Frustration ..Help! www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
