Stress


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.
{Sigh}.
Til Tomorrow.
