........GOALS.....
i believe we should set out goals ..a to do list for each day
it does help me to at least give it my best shot n
if i can get them done i feel great
if i cant do them all
i know i hv tried.....

..making self get bk out into the world getting out of this horrid isolation
...even if its to take a walk uptown n look around at least i am around other ppo\
..adapting to being deaf n accepting i need to learn sign
thats in the works now
..finding new ways everyday to help beat this a/p monster like it does us

if you hv your own ways of coping n would like to share plz do
it mmight just be something that helps others

ty n take care

OK I will go next:


1. I will avoid people who stress me out.



2. I will be more assertive. I won't take a backseat in my own life instead I will deal with problems head on, doing my best to anticipate and prevent them.



Those are the two I am going to keep working on right now.

I have been approved to go to highschools here in town n discuss the consequences of drinking n driving
Cait will be my ears n she is excited about this as am i
bit nervous too
but if i can stop just one kid from driving drunk n a mother losing that child

then i will deal with the nervousness
this is something ive wanted to doo for years ....

That is a great idea and what an inspiring goal. I am sure you will make a difference in the lives of these students.



Congratulations to you and to Cait !

Great Topic.

My Goals are:-

1. Be more accepting of my situation and roll with the anxiety rather than getting depressed about it.
2. Use CBT to help me feel more comfortable in social situations.
3. Learn how to deal with my Asperger's
4. Work on confidence

Having goals is such an important part of dealing with your issues what every they are as it gives something to aim for and log once you have achieved your goal to show your progress.

Well yesterday was a real eye opener for Cait n how ppl deal with others that hv issues with hearing sight ect
we walked from one end of town to other had some bills to pay
apparently at the utility co the woman was quite miffed and snarky i just knew something was up due to caitss body language and lil tears coming up but not falling of anger n i think frustration

from there we went out n had lunch together..and she proceeded to write out what the woman was saying
well i lmbo at caits response to woman ..told her you go for 50 plus yrs hearng then not hear n see if you get a bit upset when trying to deal with rude ppl like you
that is my mom n you will not treat her that way
my lil hero......

We really had a great mom n daughter day i initiated it as i think she is worried i cant walk that far but we did it n had a great day all around
finally at about 11 she came n gv me a hugg said love you momma n im sorry i didnt really get it til today how ppl treat you n you wouldve popped that woman if she was talking to me like that
..told me she loved me n off to bed she went

i made it thru the heat walking all the stores not hearing but still able to converse
i had some great quality time with Cait
slept like a babe till just bit ago
it truly felt good getting out n getting home safely ...
losing my fear of being out n about..deaf

what about you out there ...anyone

To be able to give presentations and teach.

This is something I have tried many times and failed many times. I've been taking Lexapro for the last two years, and my stress is much more manageable. My goal is to be able to give presentations and teach to large groups. I just started Toastmasters again.
Colitis is in remission. No longer get IBS.
 
Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No crystalline fructose, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, vitamins & supplements, Lexapro (for stress).

1. Keep working on going to my happy place and using it to keep me calm...

2. Try to avoid negative thinking... Gotta remind myself that I am a good person and that bad simply doesn't factor into the equation...

3. Continue to do deep breathing exercises.

4. Continue to keep my appointments with my therapist...

5. Relax.

6. Prepare for summer classes starting June 7th...
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.

My ultimate goal is to be able to go to the zoo, movies, out to eat, etc...with my kids without worrying about my crohns or anxiety! My daughter is starting to want to visit colleges, I would like to get to where I can go with her and not have to send my mom. I am so lucky to have my mom to help me in situations like this, however I would like to take her:)
