As have others, I've been struggling. My bi polar depression has been getting the best of me. I was able to get into my psychiatrist on Tuesday and he added another temporary med to my daily "cocktail" to help me through it. Hopefully I'll come out of it soon.
I had gained a few pounds while I was at my mom's last week, but have taken it off. I haven't been eating well since I don't care about anything, but my husband is helping me to eat regular, good meals. I'm so fortunate to have him.
So I am going to start measuring again today. I'm making a turkey breast for dinner so that will go well with some fresh veggies. I'll have a salad for lunch, and my usual Raisin Bran Crunchy Granola and dried apricots for breakfast. I've been skipping breakfast which is a bad thing, so back at it again today.
Thanks to all of you who continue to post everyday.
I'm so sorry that you're suffering. I understand because I have these times too. It's hard to get out of this place, but you need to find a way.
Why does your psychologist want to put you on meds? Do you have an illness that requires them? If you do, they might help you out. With my bi polar, without my meds I wouldn't get out of bed half of the time.
Call some friends or family members. Watch a show you love. Read a good book. Try to get out of the house, even if you just stand in your yard for five minutes. Push yourself just a little bit today and see how it feels.
I'm getting nervous about this upcoming week. I am staying at my mom's down in the cities for four days and am very worried about eating out all the time as she wants to do. I'm going to do my best to order smart and healthy meals but I am still concerned. I'm going to go to the store with her when I get there and buy fruits and veggies to have in the house though and I'm hoping that will help.
We are going to see Derek and Julianne Hough's dance show on Wednesday. For those of you who don't know, he's the most fabulous dancer on Dancing With The Stars. He has won it all four or five times. His sister is a singer/actress/dancer also. I'm really looking forward to the show. I'm hoping that her internet is fast enough for me to be able to be online
Today will be a normal eating day which is good. I've been losing and gaining the same .4 pounds for a week now so I need to be very watchful of my calories.
I hope that everybody has a great day and is feeling better. We have had a lot of wonderful people here with health problems and I'm hoping that this day finds all of you feeling great.
That's fabulous and something that I need to pay more attention to. I do stay away from diet soda because of the Aspertame, so if I stray away from water and drink a soda, I go for the stuff with the real sugar. I don't get the artificial sweeteners in restaurants either...I get the real stuff. It's really not that many more calories in one of those little packets and SO much healthier!
I had to smile when you said that about not saying anything if you don't have anything nice to say. It reminds me of a line from "Steel Magnolias" when Olympia Dukakis' character said "If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit next to me."
