    Stress and tears once again

    Tonight ended up being longer than anticipated, and I just don't handle very well people springing stuff on me at the last minute. So, tonight I'm finally home, but I have another headache and I'm near tears and hadn't eaten since about 1:30 so I just had a meltdown and caved and ate comfort food. Double sigh. Something got sprung on me for tomorrow, too, but hopefully I will sleep well and be able to handle life better tomorrow.

    Doctor appointment went so-so. I was trying to explain to him how I needed a more holistic approach to things, and, oh, I don't know. Maybe HE was having a hard day or was tired, who knows. As usual, most of my problems revolve around my weight issues. I talked to him, too, about re-starting Wellbutrin for my depression, except that it's spring now and I'm hoping the sunshine and yard work will help lift my mood. We decided to wait 1 month and see how I'm feeling then.

    I updated him about my official diagnosis of PTSD and how last year I was overwhelmed with FBs and memories about a childhood I didn't even know about. Guess he took it in stride. I'm just a bit disappointed with him. I don't know how to explain it. I didn't really get through the list of items I wanted to discuss with him, and he didn't seem willing to let me tackle my list, so that in itself was stressing me. Overall he seems nice enough, it's just that something isn't clicking and I don't know how to explain it. I was sooo hoping I would get a better vibe this go round, 'ya know?

    Guess I'll go to bed soon and have a good cry. I need a time out from life, and my vacation is looking busier and busier!!

    Thanks for listening, whoever is out there.

    Misty and AZ, I'm sorry that you're dealing with all these things. I wish there was more I could say or do for you both. Just know that I'm here and listening. You're not alone. (((germ-free hugs if okay)))

    Thanks, everyone. AZ - A concussion? Have you been to a doctor? Sure hope you are doing better today. Wow. That's awful. Please stay safe. ((hugs))

    Thanks Kitty, LLT and Rose. I'm doing better today. I don't have a headache yet today, so hoping that's over. I've stomped my foot and pouted long enough. I'm trying to "put on my big girl pants" and make better choices today and tackle the lies in my head with truths.

    Oh, those ingrained lies!!! My, oh, my, are they hard to get rid of or what!? You know???

    Rose, hope you are feeling a bit better today.

    Thanks for the germ-free hugs and sitting with me and listening.
