Stress is SO bad for MG. For any chronic illness really. I think people underestimate the affect stress has on the body. It can kill. Literally.
So I'm stressed. About stress. Just kidding :) But seriously...I have a lot of stress in my life. I actually like stress. I was an Operations Manager in dispatch at a transportation company after all. But it's not good for me. And I don't know what to do about it. I mean, that sounds trite, but it's true. There is very little I can eliminate from my life.
Dogs: Cause HUGE stress. I LOVE my dogs, but my life would be SO much easier without them. The hair, the noise, the tripping over them....Ug.
Bills: Someone has to do the budget! And it's me. Has to get done.
Jacob: Homeschool, raising him, discipline, the noise, the activity level....CRAZY.
My health: MG, fibro., PAIN....I've been to two different "pain specialists" and I always get the same thing: lose weight, physical therapy, exercise, reduce stress. Water therapy would be great. Um, and I paid you HOW MUCH to tell me everything I already know and WOULD BE DOING IF I COULD?!?!?
It's SO frustrating.
I just got my "recommendation" from the last pain clinic: physical therapy and stress management. Ya think?
The ONLY things that are "expendible" from an objective point of view are my writing and jewelry. NOT giving that up. I know I've written this before...but it's just getting so stinkin' old.
I need flippin' HELP around here. All I get are empty words. It Just. Gets. Old.
