Hey GG

It looks like we both missed out on the book study last night. I fell asleep before 8 and slept till 6! I have been doing that about once a week.

I feel ok after the regurg-ing. It was as bad as I thought it would be, but not for as long as I feared. I'll be ok.

Well - my training on the digital stuff? Got pushed back another month. It's just as well, I would have to drive to the metroplex eery day, and that is exhausting to me.
I went to another town to visit some family this evening. It was nice to see them. (This is the OK side of the family)

Your kneeee!! Finally you are seeing some progress. Yeehaw!

How is everything else going?

Hey bev, Sounds like you are getting out more??? Yep, I wasn't feeling well on book nite and need to catch up. I am also trying to get into the book on boundaries that someone here suggested since apparently I have not had any boundaries in my life. The readings in both books seem simple until I am challenged by the questions. It is hard for me to be honest with them....very hard...

I am actually looking forward to my checkup in Houston, because I finally feel I am going to get some good news. Also, I am finally able to walk without aides and want to get in some shopping and meet some friends. Now, I can't walk too far, but it is better than staying home like I have done the last 3 months!!!

I hope you are doing okay...(((bev)))

I want some. I made jambalaya - sort of - from a Tony Chachere's mix.
I would rather have gumbo.

Yeah, I am getting out a little more, it is a little warmer, and I am feeling a little better.

As for the questions - maybe you don't have to answer them all- you can skip over till you are ready to answer the triggery Qs?

Good to hear from the Rouxlady in action!!

oops again...my daughter with the boyfriend I have the issue with...well, they went on a Mardi Gras trail ride today and got in a fight and now they are not speaking...She went to be consoled at her girlfriend's house. I hope this is the end, but not counting on it. This relationship is affecting her career. She is in her junior year in college and on full academic scholarship and she has been wanting to completely change her major due to not leaving him. She will miss out on so many opportunities she had planned since she is in the medical field. She is ready to quit it all for him!!! I could scream...but, just praying and hoping this relationship is over...

I was wondering of you were able to stay awake today? I always hate when that happens to me.

I'm sorry I missed your post- both times.

You doing ok?

I actually had no problem staying awake; goes with the job. That is what I have always loved about my job, never boring!!!

I am doing okay and hoping to catch up on some sleep tonight.

Take care bev...

p.s. The gumbo was good; wished I could have shared some with you!

GG-

I read in another post about your list making. I have to do that, too, with anything outside the house. That houseword- I just go into cruise control with that. I didn't always have to make lists, but I find it more helpful nowadays. (I blame everything on pre-menopause)

Anyway, I got to googling and found this- I don't know how much info you have gathered on ADD, but it might give you some more insight.

Actually, feel like I have been on a rollercoaster of emotion, extreme highs and lows here...but it will pass, it always does

The least stressed area in my life now is my job. I really love teaching kids, especially the age group I work with. Most people think I am crazy for liking my job and the age group, oh well, works for me!!!

I have been really having a lot of insomnia/anxiety/panic attacks lately. I have not slept all night in 2 weeks. I finally got enough nerve to call my doctor and went in about this on Monday. I started on some medicine and hoping this will get better soon. I think if I sleep all night, I will celebrate the next day!!!

GG-

How am I doing? EH. I started a diet Monday, and I want to EAT CARBS. I want some chips!!! I dreamed of French Fries last night. I have lost 3 lbs, but I think it is all fluid- I started taking some water balance herbs. Girl, I can't go over an hour without needing to go winky-tink!! I also got this liver complex and have had results there, too. To spare you, I won't go into any details, but I feel lighter.

You gettin away for a weekend? You gonna tell about that?

Bev, I don't know what you mean by liver complex...but I get the idea, I think...I need to be on a diet big time. I am embarrassed to say that I gained 40 pounds last year. No, I was not pregnant (LOL), but it was due to depression and my limited physical ability. The weight gain has me down, but hoping to get motivated when I get moving better.

This weekend is about the only thing I am feeling positive about. After I go to the doctor, I am meeting some girlfriends for a weekend of fun! I can't wait to get away. My husband is NOT happy about it at all. I feel like I am going to a slumber party; I feel young just thinking about it.

Good luck on the diet and any motivational ideas (after this weekend of course!) will be appreciated...

Take care and don't wither away!!!

Ok I will tell you what motivated me. Sunday morning, after I washed my hair, I wrapped a towel around it- turban thingy- bent down and when I came up, twisting the towel, I swayed. The room spun. I had eaten popcorn the night before. (Big no-no for me, but I was upset) When I do this my sugar swoops up, then bottoms out during the night.

I know better, and I have been using every excuse to eat what I want. I am getting some kind of trucker-butt because I have been at this driver job for 9 months now. When I did mammograms, I was 10 lbs lighter, and 2 sizes smaller. Doing one mammo every 15 minutes and having to raise my arms over my head (for most ladies) all day, then walking fast down the hall every 15 minutes was great exercise. Stressful, though.

I have a cousin who is very ill from his drinking, and he is only 7 years older than me. I took him to the hospital Saturday.

After I swayed Sunday morning, I was dizzy for about 4 hours. I started thinking about my mortality. And the choices I make. And the excuses I make. For now, though (here is my vanity) I want to get into my jeans, and I bought a 2-piece suit last year and dammit I am going to wear it again next summer!!

If you could do Atkins or a high protein/low carb, you might lose 15 pounds the first month. I just can't stay on it strictly for very long.

Where are you going for your weekend?

Okay, I am impressed that you even consider wearing a 2-piece suit. I may wear a 2-piece, but the top will be a tank top!!!

I am going to Houston...that is where my doc is at the Medical Center and then a couple of girlfriends are meeting me. We may go to Kemah boardwalk for dinner one night and who knows...I want it to be spontaneous. My husband thinks everything has to be planned and in my field, everything has to be very well-planned. I am tired of planning. This kind of weekend is a RARE occurrence and I am so excited.

Good for you, GG! Have fun!

As for that suit- I was at the lake in a one piece suit 2 summers ago, and it is real casual there. I was floating on a floatie thing, watching some folks on the beach. I turned to my friend and said, "You know, I don't think I would look any worse in a 2piece than half these women here" She said "I agree". So, last summer my belly got burned for the first time in like 30 years.

When I lived in Phoenix we would just up and go to the comedy club- that was fun.
