Back for February:
How do I feel today – Still in the winter blues. I have been doing a lot of work. It’s a mixed feeling. I enjoy what I do but I am working flat out. This is my 13th straight day. I don’t think I am getting the validation I want. Is that important enough? And I watched the last episode of Parenthood and wailed. All the possibilities that life could have. Could have, would have, should have. There’s just the now. And it is finite. That milestone looms and is dragging me down.
What did you do for yourself today? Not much. I worked which in a twisted way is for me. I need to get away from that because seriously, in the past giving my all to someone else has never worked for me.
What did I eat today and how did it make me feel – Well it was mixed and I really didn’t do well. I started off with an apple streusel (non gluten muffin) I had some nuts. I made a pina colada smoothie. It tasted like a pina colada and I can’t stand pina coladas! But for dinner I had steak with my husband. I don’t like steak particularly and it’s so not on Swank. I made some great mango sorbet.
Did I exercise? What did I do? How did it feel – Well, this hasn’t been a banner week or month. I have literally been housebound and working 10 hours a day. Today I did the stepper for 45 minutes. Not enough. I have been spotty on the abs and I have not been to the gym or Zumba.
For whom or what are you grateful? What matters most in life? Grateful as usual to be warm safe and dry. I have a job. I have possibilities. I have people who love and care for me. Same as last month. This month I am thinking of my husband and how he stands by me.
Do I have a higher purpose or driving force in my life? Make a mission statement – Ha, higher purpose is for childish dreams. Still thinking about a mission. Driving force in my life is to be remembered, to live after I die through love?
How long have I been treated with conventional medicine Not this month but I read about glutathione and I am thinking about it.
The first time I had a symptom – June 2004 walking on the beach boardwalk
What symptoms are most troublesome – Duh, gradually losing my ability to walk and being dependent.
Do I blame myself for things – Yes, I am still blaming myself for not being aggressive against this.
How is stress level? It’s high. Lot of pressure on the job. Finance has eased a bit with the ridiculous hours.
What can I do tomorrow to make it better than today? Start over. It’s a new month. I still have new days.
Until next month.
