Morning :)

I need to keep working on my therapy. I will do it and everything I can over and over to get better. I have been seeing major differences lately, and I've been journaling them to jog my memory when feeling down :) I am proud of myself as everyone else should be that takes that courageous first step to recovery.
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)
TTYL,
 
Sam

I need to create a budget and stick to it. I need to take less pain meds and focus on reality, not spend my time numbing it away.

That was the hardest thing for me a couple of yrs ago
I would spend and make sure Cait was getting all and everything she needed

** I stareted Christmas Shopping in Sept or October of this yr and believe me it was well worth it ....


NOW thanks to my CBT and (still have an obsession) lol about bills being paid
Have for a last 2 yrs since we moved here
IT feels great knowing you are NOT going to have bill collectors banging on door or calling you ll the time

I WILL not use credit cards and I stock up on groceries that are on sale .........
Plus we buy canned goods and frozen veggies from Howies work the "stir Fry" ones
Artic Garden and we all love them
I MEAN stock up lol I have cupboards and a panntry full of food plus 2 freezers lol
I also am into making cheap but good foods and Cait and I bake alot more now so
I dont have to buy lunch snacks for her and Howie
She was buying her lunch up till 2 weeks ago and it was costing 25 to 30 dollars a week .....NOT GOOD
SO that was also cut out
**Ya know I think a good thread would be on easy and cheap recipes for all especialy those with many in family
'The economy is bad every where...........

Lil sis
My dream ACTIONS I am already taking by going to Grief therapy and also volunterring at home and Sally Ann
Also have JUST joined a "Chronic Pain Support" at the hospital

Good Morning

I have changed my dreams to ones that are achievable.  I know now that I have A & P and Depression and I am working at accepting that.

I have kicked the idea of a dream world retirement to just being content with what I have.

In order to  reach my dreams of being content I am letting go of my dreams of traveling the world and living the high life.

"Retirement can be the best years of your life"  as long as you don't expect it to be perfect.

Special Hugs to All

Kitt

I think I need to let my grown adult daughters fall instead of continually trying to catch them. They need to grow up and learn that life isn't always a bowl of cherries and Mom can't fix it all.

I've done alot of work through therapy, in the last two years, that has helped me to move toward my dream life, which isn't big, glitzy or glamorous, just  a simple, happy, peaceful, "normal", independent life.  The one thing that I need to work on alot more to be able to live independently is driving alone.  We got a new car in Sept. and I have driven more (with hubby along) than I have in the last 15 years combined...all of a sudden I love to drive again.  The big issue is going it alone.  
 
I think the biggest change for me is that I truly feel differently about the p/a and absolutely believe that I can make my life whatever I want it to be.  That is so huge for me, coming from where I was a few years ago, pretty much ready to throw in the towel.
 
Nanners, being the mom of a 19 year old daughter, I know just how tough your goal is.  I'm kind of in the middle of that right now, though I've really learned to let go of her and allow her to stumble, when she falls I'm still right there.  I guess it depends on the situation, if it seems like an area she can handle, I let her go, but if she's ever in big trouble I'm here for her.  I won't fix the problems, but I'll support her and counsel her if she wants me too, but your right, kids need to learn how to make mistakes and fix them themselves...Not easy for mama!

Kitt, you are so right on making your dreams achievable, not ones that are impossible. That's part of my problem. I always set goals too high. I also began keeping a journal. I put everything in there from my childhood, positive statements, fears, and I write when I've had a bad/good day. It helps.

The answer to today's question...I should probably begin taking a beta blocker.

Hi, all! Oh, it's so good to be back!

I got swamped and in one of those chaotic places for a bit, but am looking forward to bouncing back.

I struggle to stay organized, and not feel overwhelmed by tasks that need to be done. I need to follow my therapist's advice and not let things get into these big piles -- literally or emotionally - that make me feel helpless and out of control.

Junebug my girls are 26, 29, & 30. They are old enough to know better now. I finally got my 29 year old settled down and walking a better path, thank goodness. But my oldest has made some serious changes lately that have me not only concerned for her, but for my grandbabies. But you are right, it seems you never stop being a Mom. But the situation is affecting my health, and beloved husband is not happy with that, so its nice to have him stabilize me. Thanks for commiserating with me.

You've put it back in my head again.  A while back my mother and I were talking and I discovered that the only dreams I had had would not come true and also discovered that I have no dreams of what my true life would be like.  Sad huh.  I'd like to meet a nice guy and get married but at this point not sure how I would go about accomplishing that.  I'm gonna really have to do some hard thinking and journaling on this question today.  You've woken up a part of my brain that really needs to be dealt with.

Do more writing! :D
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
