Good for you for saying no to alcohol! It's hard!
I have a really hard time being around people who are eating things that I can't. I can't handle the feeling of being deprived!
My nutritionist told me to cry it out, be angry, but don't give in. Just feel it and let it pass.
Keep it up mogs, you will get there. Once you get yourself centered then you will have all the strenght you need to help your mom. Count your blessings now, even the little ones. SOmetimes that helps me drive awa the depressions when they come. As for staying in bed all day, well that could be fun with the right company . LOL LOLL LOL
Hope you are feeling better.
You all have been so wonderful, to no surprise. Each day I come on here and read responses to this thread, I am comforted.
Haha Bill re the company in bed, but we know how that's going for me these days, or rather "not" going for me LOL
Tortoise-no exercise? I find that surprising. What was his/her theory behind that? I am curious....
Depression still hanging on. At work today
But I would rather be here today. Bf really was awful yesterday. It did not help me at all. He is angry over us being short on cash. It frustrates me because I do everything I can to not spend money; I actually haven't bought anything for myself for almost two months, which is 4 pay cheques! I've just been paying bills, credit card, rent, groceries. I take my lunch; I haven't gone out for lunch in weeks!! So it's hard for me to not take it personally when I have been doing the right things!
Anyway, had a good talk with my one pdoc that I work for. She has been my biggest supporter with Mom. I told her of my bp today; I know it was okay to do. She is so trusting and professional, and so very kind. She just keeps insisting that I take time off work and I wanted her to know that at times it helps me to be here and if I do take days, then my mental health would be the reason. I have not shared my dx with an employer in over 8 years. I do not feel at all this would ever jeopordize my career. People can say b/c she is a pdoc she may look at all the little things I do and use them against me, but honestly, I am here at work everyday, she holds me in the highest regard as I keep her life organized here at work. I know she knows who I am by now and it felt good to share this with her. I have not shared this with the other two pdocs I work for and I don't suspect I will. I have a close relationship with the other one.
Take care, I have a pdoc appt Wednesday....had no success of getting the appt moved up.
