Kristina - You are right about the in every 100 people there will 5 that aren't so good. That is crazy how the snowbirds keep getting younger I wish that was the case for me. emoticon I'm too broke too do anything. I hope you can take Deacon to the dog park without being harassed. However it must be good to know that the guy that gave you a hard time at the dog park is not welcome and you also were not the first one that he has gone off on.

That's too bad that your MIL dragged you everywhere, ugh I hate when that happens. If only she could have at least told you of the places you had to go with her you would have been able to get mentally prepared but I would be bushed after all those errands.

I hope Deacon has better luck with his new food. Animals can sometimes be sensitive to certain foods. So some can work better then others. Hopefully there won't be too much trial and error with Deacons food.

Hope you have or had (can't remember if the fair is today or tomorrow) a good day at the Whole Body Fair hopefully you can find some nice goodies to paper yourself.

Take care, hugs and positive vibes.

Candice

Hello Friends, I have to say I'm so glad it is Friday this has been a rough week. I see it has been a rough week for many as well. I finished my book I was reading and now i'm disappointed it's over it was a good novel. I came up with an idea of creating a scrapbook sort of thing to remember all the books I've read something fun to do I guess. What I would do is have a picture of the book, the description and then my opinion at what I thought of it. I think it's pretty neat.

Well I hope I'm not boring anyone and sending hugs and positive vibes to everyone.

Candice emoticon

We've also hit the time of the year when all the Snowbirds are here for the Winter. I swear that over the years, the snowbirds are getting younger and younger. There was a 30 something couple down here for the Winter. Hubby owns his business and runs it from home. Spends 4 months here and 8 in Connecticut.

All in all, the majority are very nice and polite. In every bunch of apples there will always be at least 1 bad one. I try to keep telling myself that for every 100 people, at least 5 are bad ones.

Miller - I have to pipe in that many of us Floridians are very nice! Most of the rude people that I run into down here are from New York City and Boston (no offense to those cities either - just an observation.)

CRYSSYC, I'm sorry you've had a bad week. I assume the friend you're staying with is the one who abused you? If so, and your family was against your going back, then you're probably right - the reason they have probably not called to check on you is because they disagreed with your decision to forgive this person and to live with him.

If you feel it is helping you to heal to forgive him and stay with him, then I guess you have to continue to do what you think is best for you and hope that your family will understand sometime in the future.

I don't know the specific details about what he did to you and your sister, so I shouldn't even comment, but I have to confess that I would probably feel like your family. I assume your family loves you and I know that I don't want someone I love to be in an unsafe or abusive environment and if they chose to do that - even for healing - I would be angry and hurt because I would feel helpless.

You could write a letter to your family and explain how you feel and what you are trying to accomplish and see if that is enough to make them understand and decide to contact you.

In any case, I wish you well and I hope you are safe and sound.

Take care emoticon

Cryssyc-I am so sorry you feel like this. It is so sad about your family.
I also have a tendency to eat when I'm bored, just to feel the empty time with something. I had to learn not to munch on everytime when I sit down to read a book or to watch a tv show or a movie.
You are right not to go and vomit what you have ate, even if you feel bad on your stomach. This feeling will pas, and you will feel hungry again.
I am sending you lots of virtual hugs and hope you will have better days very soon.

Maybe i should just start a new thread that is entitled HELP, I am having a bad week!! But then again i wont. Because a week is only made up of 7 days, and out of those I have had 5 bad days. I am staying at a friends house since last saturday, and not one person from my family cares to call and see how i am doing, does not care to drive over to see if i need anything. But last saturday they were all mad that i even came. so i guess the are just still in that i should be here mood. I am thinking I may compose a letter that explains exactly how I feel and that they need to grow up and see that i am doing something that is helping to heal me. Its also been a bad few days because today i have been excessively bored. which with me leads to eating. So I made a pieapple banana nut bread and ate half in 2 sittings, have also eaten today half a pizza, and 2 cadbury carmel eggs. i so bad want to go and vomit. But if i start that i will do it every time i eat anything again. I do hope that you all have had a great week. have a great weekend

Marta, don't feel stupid - you made the best decision you could with the information you had - I'm surprised the kids didn't get home earlier - here in NC, they closed 4 hours early!

Good job with getting the driveway shoveled! Sorry about your teeth, though. This sounds crazy, but drink something hot and put on a hat (yes, even in the house). It works for me.

I feel so stupid. I cancelled meeting with my friend because I was afraid the school will send kids home earlier, and actually they got home later, because the buses took another route.
Anyway, I shoveled the driveway and then went for a good long walk in the neighborhood.
Now all my teeth hurt, because they are sensitive to cold LOL

I am exhausted again today. Got Deacon's new food as the other food was not settling well with him. Then after a rushed lunch, had to take MIL for her appointment. Why can this lady not tell me that we are going to a hundred other places as well? Bank, gas station (needed), 40 miles to a special podiatrist, then to Denny's (I already ate and had to eat again), then groceries, another grocery store, pharmacy, then another grocery store, then finally (Thank Gawd!!) home. I am thankful my daughter was willing to walk Deacon, but I never got to do 3 of his training sessions.

Hope everyone has a better weekend and stays safe with all this wild weather here and there. I'm going to pamper myself since our Whole Foods store is have a Whole Body Fair for personal care items and free samples. Since I am allergic to most all soaps and cleaners, they also sent me an email saying they had a bunch of new products for people with my needs.

LLAMA, when I read the first part of your post, I was thinking, "switching therapists might be a blessing in disguise" as you said you'd like more things to "work on" in between sessions so you can make more progress, and I thought it was possible this other therapist might work that way. But then I read where you could still see her, and honestly that's probably best since she already knows all your background.

Do you feel comfortable being honest with her and telling her that it's really hard on you to "visit" these painful things in therapy and then to feel you have nothing to hang onto? I just wonder if she would try giving you some type of input at the end of each session that would help you have something to hold onto. I know you're probably tired of me saying this, but that's really why I like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy the most - because you get "homework" to do and it really does start to help immediately. It works just as quickly as you're willing to work and I can tell by your posts that you're a motivated patient who is willing to put in the work and effort.

I'm glad you got home safely. My daughter and I got home before the bad weather started, but it took my husband 2 hours to get home instead of one - and he kept passing wreck after wreck. People were sliding all over the place!

I wish I could say something that would help you more. My heart goes out to you because I know how frustrating and slow talk therapy can be. I'm wishing you the very best and I hope things get better soon.

Blessings, emoticon

Angst angst angst...

I started my session, and my therapist sat down and told me that she couldn't see me anymore because her schedule was going to change, and that she'd spoken with someone else, and that he had time for me. I was really mad and upset, but it's almost as if I knew this was coming-I just had a feeling.

I think it would take too much work to catch someone else up...so I suggested that we meet during my lunch on Mondays. Every other teacher takes off on Fridays for lunch, why can't I take off for lunch on Mondays? Crisis averted.

Tough session today. Bringing up issues that frankly cause pain, with an abrupt ending to the session without anything to grab onto. Anxiety is causing tightness in my chest and nausea.

Then I drove home, and because where I live they wait until all the snow has fallen and THEN take care of the roads, they were slick. I fishtailed in my van for the first time in my life, and fortunately, there wasn't anyone else near me. It was terrifying though!

I'm glad that my next therapy appointment is coming up so soon-I'm feeling really awful.

KIMMIE, I was just saying (on another thread) that my parents needed medication and therapy when I was growing up. Please don't be offended when I say this, but it sounds like you're husband could really benefit from some meds and therapy. My husband went through a period of time after his heart attack where he was mean!!! He would get furious in a "skinny minute." I made him a doctor appointment went with him and basically told the doctor that he was out of control. It turned out that one of his meds was causing his severe moods, so the doctor switched it - the doc also prescribed a tranquilizer for when my husband gets those angry "out of control" feelings.

It's just a thought - maybe that's just your husband's personality or maybe he's under a lot of stress at work, or something. My husband is - he hates his job and his mother drives us crazy because she always needs money from us.

Good luck and God bless - I wish you a better, brighter, and calmer day tomorrow! emoticon

LINNEA, I understand - it sounds like your sister has a "full plate" so to speak. It's good to know that you could live with her if you ever really had to, though. I feel guilty a lot because my daughter is an only child - she has no siblings and I doubt if she'll ever get married because she never goes anywhere but school and she's terribly shy and doesn't like to be around people. I've said this so much that I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing it, but my husband and I do worry about what will happen to her when we're gone. I'm really glad you have your sister and I wish my daughter had one.

I really am sorry you're so lonely. I wish we Sparkers lived closer to one another. I know this won't help, but there are probably more lonely people "out there" than any other kind. Some of my loneliest feelings were when I was in a large room with lots of people. I feel less alone when I'm by myself. I know that doesn't make sense, but I guess I'm trying to say that if you're depressed and not outgoing (like me), being in a room full of laughing, chatting people makes me feel like the loneliest person on the planet.

I hope you feel better soon!

Big Hugs!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank you Miller.

He just yells and is acting like a jerk. I love him but I can't stand him being like this. I don't know why he is like this.
My parents would fight all the time and I am tired of living like my parents.

I wish that we could have a happy relationship

Miller- I'd live with my sister but she has a family. Three kids and a grandbaby and husband. While there is plenty of room I don't think it will work. Unless there is a disaster then I can live with them. But not until then.

AUTUMSUN, I tried to view your Spark page photos, but it's "set to private" (except for friends). I'm sure you're still lovely even in the full body shots, but I understand wanting to lose weight and get more healthy. I've lost and regained 60 lbs. twice and I want to lose it for good. I'm 58 now, so I'm running out of time. The first time I lost 60 lbs., my skin still had all of it's "elasticity," but the last time I was old enough that my skin didn't tighten back up as it should.

I had a roommate when I was 19 and 20 and she never allowed herself to gain over 5 lbs. I always scoffed at her - but she would say, "it's a lot easier to lose 5 lbs. than to lose 50 lbs. and she was right. She's still at the weight we were when we were young - it's pretty amazing. On the other hand, she doesn't have the mental disorders and abusive back ground that I do, so a lot of things go into why we're overweight and why we can or can't lose and maintain that loss. Well, I feel I'm rambling, so I'll hush now.

I hope you have a good weekend - keep in touch!

LINNEA, I don't blame you - it was just a thought. Roommates can be terrible. If you already knew the person and their personality and little idiosyncrasies, then it might be different, but even then it would probably be hard. For instance, you and your sister seem to have a very good relationship and maybe you two could get along if you lived together, but there is NO way I could live with either of my sisters. We lived together growing up, of course, but no way could I do it now - I don't think they'd want to live with me, either. We'd drive each other crazy. emoticon

MPN5621 - Well I rounded. According to my doctor and her BMI calculations, I am (or was at her last weight in last month) 47 lbs overweight. For my height, of 5'3" my weight should be around 125.. so technically I have 41 more pounds to go if I can manage to keep this 6 that I've lost from coming back. I use to stay underweight, and when I started gaining it all piled on my stomach. hips and arms mostly. I've put my 'before' pictures up to my 'present day' pics and my face hasn't gained that much. Thats why I always avoid full body shots.. but there is one on my profile.

Miller- After the roommates I've had in the past I decided that the next one will be putting a ring on my finger. I've just had really bad experiences with roommates. Including one with a germ phobia whose cleaning of her stuff gave me headaches that were horrible. The smell of cleaners were a daily thing. I think the only thing that saved me was the open window. And going to classes.

KIMMIEKAY, I'm sorry about your husband yelling at you. Is he yelling because you binged on reese's hearts or did you binge on reeses hearts because of his yelling?

I'm like you - I like for things to be calm. What I crave most in this world is peace, peace, peace and to feel safe. I hate it when there is conflict and tantrums and yelling going on. I grew up with a lot of that and I don't want to live in it now that I have a choice.

I don't really blame your girls for not talking to him about what they're doing. They probably think that he would either not listen or disapprove of them. It's really hard to live with a negative person, especially one with a temper. I hope he only yells and doesn't physically abuse you all. Of course, verbal abuse is very damaging, too. I've suffered from both and even the verbal abuse leaves bruises - you may not be able to see them on the outside, but they're definitely there on the inside and sometimes they last longer, too.

I would suggest marital or family counseling, but most men are resistant to counseling unless they're forced into it by being threatened with a divorce or something.

Anyway, I'm glad you came here and posted. We're here for you and we care. You deserve to live in a calm environment and I hope the rest of your weekend will go better.

Take care,

It has been a bad day. I have binge on reese hearts. I hate being yelled at by my husband. Sometimes you would think that he is my father and not my husband. The girls don't talk to him about what they are doing. Cause he most of the time don't listen to them or me. emoticon . I wish things would be calm.

LINNEA, you are NOT a loser!!! If you want to call yourself that, then you have to call me and a bunch of other people that, too. I don't have any off-line friends, except 3 women that call me once a year and want to have lunch. I usually make up some excuse because I'm afraid they'll judge me for my obesity, etc. My oldest sister doesn't have any online or offline friends. There are a lot of lonely people in the world. And even when you have someone in the house with you (like my husband and daughter) you can still feel like you're the loneliest person on the planet. It's not like we talk that much or do anything together (except watch TV sometimes.

I'm grateful that they're here, though. I was thinking about you last night and wanted to ask you - have you ever considered getting a roommate? Would that hurt more than help? Or do you think you might enjoy having someone around? It was just a thought.

Please be kind to yourself. Hugs and love!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

MARTA, that's cool that you have a real live Spark friend. Even if I had one, I'd probably just make up excuses not to get together with them (social anxiety). I don't blame you for not getting out in the weather, though - we have sleet, snow, and freezing rain and cars are sliding all over the place! The schools closed 4 hours early!

I'm glad to hear that Walmart eyeglasses have been a good experience for you because we really are going there next time. We just can't keep paying these exorbitant prices for eyeglasses. Our vision insurance (where my husband works) was horrible before, and now this year there is no vision coverage at all. It's very nice that Walmart didn't add an additional charge for the new prescription. emoticon

Linnea, you posted while I was drafting mine. You ARE NOT A LOSER!!!! As was said another day, I'm sure your mother doesn't mind. I was wondering if you could find some kind of group to get involved with. This would help you meet people and start socializing a bit more. Have a good day!!

Hey team, hope you are having a good day. It's snowing here again. Another inch or two expected. For the first time in a few weeks I have actually done my light therapy, meditation and a work out. Starting small with the workout since its been a while. Did 13 min of wii Fit. And I have lost a pound and a half since the first. Yay!!! Doesn't sound like much but my main concern is not to gain a lot in the SAD season so I am very excited.
Miller, you are right about eye glasses. Mine are over 600 now that I where progressive lenses. At least Insurance covers 200. You are so right that we need to stop being ok with putting ourselves down in a way that we would not let someone else. We are worthy of our own respect.
Dot, sorry about the sleep issues. That is not a lot of sleep ... I know because I go back and forth between that and too much. Hope you get some soon. Hope something turns up soon to help with the glasses.
Kris, so sorry you went to all that work and then lost it. I also open a a note app and then copy and paste ... But usually only have trouble from my phone. If this happens a lot I wonder if there is a bug that could be reported to someone. Hope you are having a good nights sleep and a good day when you get up.
Autumnsun we are still only in the first month of 2013, don't give up on your goals so quickly!!! Hang in there and things will get better. This is a great place to come talk about your problems.
Llama, you are so right, if you wouldn't like to hear one of your kids say it about themselves then don't let yourself get away with it either. It must be a relief to have told the choir director. I have had nothing but support from those that I have told, and I don't hold back much about being depressed.
Hi Marta, hope you are having a good day today.
Kristina, glad the dog park jerk got told off. Some people just have no respect for others.
Anne, great for getting to the gym even though it was a bad night.
Plainjanedoe, hope you got some sleep and are having a good day.
To everyone else, hello and hugs.
Positive vibes to all for a great day.
Marilyn

I was planning going out with my real life Spark Friend, but I called the meeting off because of the weather. Was scared the school will call with early dismissal. They didn't but the hill I live on is all white. And it's still snowing.
Dot-we buy glasses for our daughter at Walmart, it's much more affordable. The frames are not as fancy and beautiful but my daughter said they were more comfortable then her previous ones from an expensive salon.
We ordered a pair of glasses for her at Walmart and before they had them ready she realised that her vision worsened. So we obtained a new prescription from the doctor and the Walmart optic place didn't charge any additional money for this change.

DOT, you're welcome for the thoughts and prayers - anytime I can do anything to help, I'm happy to - just let me know. emoticon I'm sorry you're not getting much sleep. I wonder what's causing it? Stress or medication side effects? Or perhaps, like my daughter, your circadian rhythms and sleep schedule are just "off." Whatever the cause, I hope it will get better soon. A good night's sleep is so important and is sometimes so hard to get!

I know what you mean about the eyeglasses being expensive. All these years, I've been buying my daughter's glasses and mine at an expensive place - they're very, very good, but just too expensive. My husband and I decided that next time we need glasses, we're going to try WalMart - I don't know if the quality will be there, but we're going to give it a shot. I always hesitated getting cheaper glasses for my daughter when she was young because I was afraid they'd get the prescription mixed up and she wouldn't be old enough to realize what was wrong. Now that she's 21, that shouldn't be a problem. emoticon

I don't know if they have any Walmarts in your state - we also have a BJ's store here that we're members of - it's like Sam's Club or maybe CostCo - I wonder if you could get your eyeglasses any cheaper at any of those type stores?

Clark Howard (the consumer advocacy radio show guy) orders his eyeglasses from somewhere in China - I think he pays around $10 for them and he says he's very satisfied with them. I can't imagine, but that might be worth a try if you're feeling brave!

Good luck and God bless!

KRIS, I understand your frustration - that happens to me all the time - I type out a very comprehensive reply and then I lose the whole thing!!!! (that's why, most of the time, I open Microsoft Word on another tab and "stack" the computer screen horizontally so that I can type in Word while being able to still see the posts on Spark. Then I cut and paste my answers onto a Spark reply.) It is SO exasperating when you spend time replying and then lose it! emoticon

Thanks so much for all your splendid help and advice - it's so good to have you back!!! emoticon

Hello All,

Miller, thank you so much for the thoughts and prayers. I really do appreciate them.

Kristina, I am glad that the guy that was giving you such a hard time at the park has been escorted off of the dog park property and told not to go back. I hope that Deacon will enjoy the park now that he can go in. Best of luck to you.

I am really sorry that so many of you have such bad problems. My heart goes out to you all. I will pray and keep you in my thoughts. I really hope that things will get better for you all.

I am having some sleeping issues. I only get about 4 to 5 hours of sleep a day.

Yesterday I went back to my eye doctors for a recheck and I ended up with a new prescription for glasses. I think it might be a while before I get them because they are so expensive. I don't know what I am going to do in order to get them. Only time will tell.

I hope that everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

I am RIGHT tee'd off! I just typed up a full reply to EVERYone, and I have lost it :-((

As a result, and because I am too tired to re-do it, I will just respond to

YOU ARE PLAYING WITH FIRE!!! Odds are if you continue like this, you will be dead before you reach your goal!! If you haven't already been to your Therapist, PLEASE tell her what your eating is like. You won't have this on your own. There are many others who have this same type of disordered eating.

Below is a link to a website you may find very useful to the Trichotillomania Learning Center www.trich.org/

There are many links including for support groups - if you aren't a member of one already, I strongly suggest that you use this site to seek one out, as well as garner any further information on it that you don't already know!

LLAMA, wow - those are words of gold rolling off your tongue. Why IS it okay for you to talk to yourself that way, but not him? The answer is that it's not okay - I'm guilty of it, too, but we need to work really hard on uplifting ourselves instead of putting ourselves down.

I think it was fine to share with your choir director. My husband is very involved in the music program at our church and the choir members and director are all very supportive of one another and share their problems with each other.

If you even THINK you've lost your debit card, maybe you should contact the bank and get a "hold" or something put on your card. I'd hate to see any money being taken out by an unscrupulous person - and most debit cards now have a VISA feature, so I don't think you always need to know the pin number in order to use it.

I hope your therapy session goes well.

Take care,

Miller

AUTUMSUN, welcome! You look beautiful in your profile picture - are you sure you need to lose 50 lbs? You don't look it. I'm sorry you can't do the Scale Back Alabama, but Spark has a lot of challenges that you could participate in if you want.

And this team is very supportive - we'll be here to cheer you on - you just have to make sure you post and let us know what's going on so that we can support and encourage you.

You might want to look into "Spark Coach." I haven't done it yet, but I've heard good things about it. They were letting Sparkers try it the first 2 weeks for free - I don't know if that promotion is still going on or not. That still wouldn't solve your problem of someone to exercise with, but maybe if you listened to music while exercising, you would feel more motivated and less alone. But be careful - a woman I know was hit by a truck because she couldn't hear him because she was listening to music while walking. So, be safe!

At least you lost 6 lbs! They may not seem like a lot to you, but look at it this way - have you ever been in a grocery store and picked up a 5 lb. bag of sugar? It's not light - now just imagine having to carry that 5 lb. bag around all day wherever you go - it would get tiring, right? But you've managed to lose that bag and more, so that's 6 less lbs. your body has to carry. I think any loss is great! You're moving in the right direction!

Hang in there and keep in touch so we can support you!

LINNEA, I hope you feel better soon wish I could give you a big hug!!! Im sure your mother loves you and wants to help you in every way she can.

KIM, Im so glad your parents are so supportive what a blessing!!!

MARTA, Im grateful that your son recovered it is so wonderful to hear of success stories like that! The light therapy outside today sounds lovely.

MARILYN, Im really happy your dentist is working with you and only charging lab fees. Thats great! It was nice of the assistant to hold your hand. My usual trick when I know Im going to get stuck is to press my thumbnail into my index finger. This has helped me so much. It keeps my mind on pain that I can control the more I hurt (from the procedure), the harder I stick my thumbnail into my finger it works because Im in control of the finger pain. Im glad you got back on track with your light therapy.

CANDICE, I hope your back pain improved but it sounds like the pain has moved up to your head. I hope you get better soon! Take care and keep in touch to let us know how youre doing.

KRISTINA, I hate to slam a whole state but people in Florida dont sound all that nice. Between the lady at the hair salon that time and this jerk today, Im getting a bad impression of the general population down there!

KRISTINA, Yea!!! I just read another post that said the man was escorted away by police and is no longer welcome! My faith in kind Floridians has been restored!!!


PLAINJANEDOE, Im sorry about your sleep I love to look at full moons, but I dont like to try to go to sleep with one shining in my window! I dont know where you live or how big your apartment is, but $199 does sound like a lot for 60F & bedroom at 65F. Were on this plan where we make equal payments every month to the electric company for a whole year. But they usually end up going up on our equal payments at the end of every year. Still, its nice to know itll be the same amount every month for a year, at least. No nasty surprises that way!

ANNE981, Congratulations on giving up caffeine and soda pop and losing 16 lbs. plus 6 inches! That is so awesome! You should be so proud of yourself!!! I hope you can figure out a way to continue without all the expense. Don't know if you've tried any of Spark exercise videos, but they've got them for all fitness levels and the ones I've done are great!

Goodnight everybody and God bless,

Miller emoticon emoticon

Hi Autumsun!
You are dealing with quite a lot of nasty disorders. And you are busy with school and work. And yet you managed to lose 6 pounds. Look at this as a good start into new year. Maybe at this point you just don't have enough time to exercise a lot, so try to do a little every day.
Come here to this group for cheer and support! There's always someone who wants to hear you and say something nice to you.
I have great family but I don't meet almost any other people. I am not able to drive a car which makes me very lonely during the day, but it also forces me into walking.
I wish I could go with you to the gym or outside for a jog! And I am sure you would outrun me right away LOL
Hang in there, don't give up and believe that better days will come. I'm sure they really will.

I really try not to talk about my problems much.. but I'm literally about to break..
This has been a horrible week..
I really wanted to dedicate this year to finally loosing the 50 lbs that HAS to go so I can finally be healthy(ish) again... So I was really looking forward to Scale Back Alabama this year, but tomorrow is the last day, and we can't find a last member to make our group legit. So I guess we cant join this year. I'm really trying to stay positive about still losing, but its really hard with you don't have anyone supporting you, cheering you on, pushing you to keep it up, someone who will get out and exercise with you..
All I do is go to school, then go to work and come home to go to bed. I don't have any friends, dont see any (activity capable) family.. I'm lonely, never do anything, and just really unmotivated because of it.. Ugh so tired of it all, and really depressed..
My goal going into this year was to be 20 lbs lighter (and ended up only being 6), more energy, an active jogger, 3x week exerciser and just more positive person all around. Didn't happen.. and starting to see that its really un-achievable. The depression, bipolar, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue has really gotten the best of me. I'm ready to give up at trying anything anymore.

Determined Momma!!

Phew-finally home. Was at work from 7:30-5:30, had various rehearsals from 5:45-9. My choir director asked me if I was okay after rehearsal, and I told him about depression and work-I don't want him to think that I don't like choir (even though I don't have much interest, but without depression I love it). After I left, I think I shouldn't have said as much as I did, but oh well.

Principal came to my room again today, only briefly. Then I had a meeting with her (and some other teachers) that lasted an hour and a half. I'm sure getting my fill of her this week!

Tomorrow is therapy. I wish it weren't Fridays after work. I'm so exhausted by that time, but she doesn't have anything else that wouldn't require missing work.

I've either misplaced my debit card or it was stolen. I wish I were responsible enough to know if it was stolen, but I am disorganized.

A 3rd grader was misbehaving during one of my classes today. When I talked to him about it, he kept saying "I'm a useless piece of trash on this earth." How heartbreaking to hear that from an 8 year old! Then I realized that's pretty similar to the way I treat myself. Why is it okay for me to talk to myself that way, but not him?

PlaneJaneDoe - I am almost afraid of what my first electric bill will amount to. We paid our deposit in October, moved into the new house in November and still have not gotten a bill. When hubby called the electric company, they claim we haven't needed one yet.

Anne981 - Thanks. That guys was a problem and when I told about it on Facebook, 2 of my friends who use that dogpark know who he is and he's been escorted off by the local police numerous times. Maybe that's why he was so angry. Someone sent me a message on FB and said he is an officer for that Township and he was there when this happened and said my dog was not being a problem and that man was escorted off again and was told he is no longer welcome.

Plainjanedoe -- Sorry to hear your electric bill is high, I also hate mine too, if your like me I can't wait for Spring so we don't have the extra cost. Its great you have good deal with your rent, have you tried putting plastic on your windows to help cut down on the no insulation part.

Hi everyone, I didn't have a good night last night I hardly slept, and of course made my day very sluggish, but I manage to kick my butt to the gym, I wished it was closer :( I have to drive an hour to the gym spent 90 minutes there then went shopping for a new pair of yoga pants, my trainer has told me I've lost 16 pounds and 6 inches which had to been the best news of all. However when my trainer told me how much its gonna cost me for the rest of the year it was very disappointing no way can I pay $5900, not with all my medical bills and my sons and everyday living, I will try to find a way around it maybe he will be able to give me suggestions on what to do, till then I'm not going to give up, I've finally was able to say I'm proud of myself even if no one else was happy besides my trainer, guess giving up caffine and soda pop was definately a gain in my life.

This has not been a good week, sleep-wise, for me. And I see we have a full moon tonight, fabulous.

---

My electric bill for last month was $199 !!!! And that is using the baseboard heaters and 1 space heater to keep the apartment at about 60 F and my bedroom around 65. Last winter I didn't use as much heat and my bills were lower, but it was hell. I never felt rested, probably because I was too cold to sleep well, and showering was torture because the bathroom was so cold. The insulation here sucks but the rent is such a good deal that I can't leave. But still, $199. Geez.

Hello all - Had a off and on day. It has been a not so good food-wise day as I am almost out of food. Dinner is totally not what we need, but at least we will get filled up. MIL is buying pizza for us. Hubby's regular job keeps cutting back the hours and we get $21-$45 paychecks and his new job he hasn't gotten his first check yet. So, in essence, I was unable to buy groceries. Glad MIL was hungry for pizza as well. Then, she calls to let me know this morning that her appointment is tomorrow, not today.

Dinner just got here. I will fill in the rest of details when I am done.

Okay - I am back now - Then I went to take Deacon to one of the local (semi-local) dog parks. Daughter went with me. We went to the medium dog field and this man gets into my face practically saying no pit bulls allowed. We explained that he is not a pit. Then he claimed Deacon was too large and would frighten his dog. We go over to the large dog area and we are told it's too full and that Deacon is small enough for the medium dog area. We go back and the man just goes off. Asks where we live and when I explained, he claims this park is for their area only not for all of the county. Needless to say, I got angry and left. Poor Deacon just wanted to run and play, but couldn't. Then, he got sick in my car on the way home. I have since shampooed the car and know why he got sick and hope to get it taken care of tomorrow. It's his food. It's not agreeing with him at all.

I still have a bunch of dishes to do, but Lordy I am mentally exhausted.
