Morning chickas -
Shins still suck, but that is life. I've been busting butt on the elliptical since I can't run. I've been taking vitabin B every morning and I've seen a significant improvement in my moods. Almost eerie.

Hope - Hope the hubby is doing well.

Mom - *Breath* It's just laundry You'd have a heart attack in my apt if messy laundry stresses you out! Speaking of, I really do need to fix mine!

Pure - Sorry you're stressed, but glad you're back in school.

All -

Default Hello everyone

I'm Claudia and I'm back to the Forum after a long break.

I've had major depressive disorder for years, but for the past 3 months it has been getting out of control. Since I am an ER RN, I was able to ask for help before things got totally out of hand.

I reached out to my work and psychiatrist and am on my second week of an adult partial program to deal with my illness. We are manipulating my medications, and I am getting intense group and individual therapy.

The issue with that is that since I am finally addressing years of suppressed emotions, my eating is getting a little out of hand.

I am vegetarian and have very healthy eating habits, but when anxious, or trying to hide, I OVER eat. So today, after having some intense therapy, I came home and ate a LOT of healthy food.

Now I am stuffed, and feeling lousy. BUT, I am happy and proud of myself for having come here and faced it all rather than beating myself up and talking negatively to myself. I guess I am becoming kinder and more accepting of not being perfect...

Thanks for listening.

Peace,

Claudia

Its not sooo much that it stresses me out cause it usually doesnt until I cant find stuff then it really bugs me because with the 4 younger kids and my dh always needing stuff i cant stand digging thru baskets of clothes to find stuff...it was that I worked my BUTT off friday to get the laundry caught up. I left with a load drying, one washing, and one left to do...instead of my dh folding the last two as they came out he just stacked them on a basket in a big heap then washed a few blankets...it just sucked because I had it caught up and he left it "pile" up on me...lol... but I have come to the point that laundry is laundry and there is ALWAYS going to be dirty laundry no matter how much I do laundry. So...yeah!!


was a pretty good day not very much stress...so hey I am doing good!!

SOS DD.

Hello to Claudia!

Mom - Yes. I've had to come to that realization myself. I let laundry pile up for like ... two weeks. (Yeah, I'm bad) - then I do it ALL in one weekend. Once I'm done, if my husband wants to shower I almost cry because I know that means his clothes now go into the "dirty clothes" and the evil cycle starts again!

Liz - Awesome on the 7lbs!

Everyone else
Have a fantastic day!

I had a rough weekend. Almost no sleep and had to force myself to eat. I was too wired for getting serious about exercising. I feel much better as of today and I have a call into my pdoc to see her for a med adjustment.

I am off tomorrow and I have my granddaughter right now so that always makes my day! I am still on plan and I need to get motivated to exercise more this week.
