Past few weeks of therapy summed up along any updates on me

Friday, August 07, 2020

First let me apologize for being absent from Sparkpeople for so long. I let my depression get the best of me and I have to admit that I should have known better. However I have learned from my mistake now and I am learning not to isolate myself anymore. I have chosen to first to discuss what was talked about in my therapy sessions and then go on from there. In my sessions we discussed my triggers for emotional eating as well as stress eating and also my anger and how to control it. The therapist sent me a homework assignment where that I need to finish before Tuesday when I talk to him next. Now for the updates; first I have chosen to restart the 12 steps of OA from scratch with my mom and myself with more diligence and honesty than before. Second when I was before i had my EGD I came to find out that I had released 11 lbs of weight this past month. Also I have now a new neurologist scheduled for the end of the month. I will be seeing hm on the 25th of the month. I also may have to talk to my primary about taking me off of my cholesterol med since I am struggling with constipation right now.

    11 lbs, well done you! Sigh, it's easy these days to fall prey to depression, especially for those of us already prone to it. You're not alone.

    Welcome Back!....I have also been absent for awhile...because we moved and computer was down and then I continued to be so busy with the move that I did not restart until this week.
    Your plans look good. Stick with us too! emoticon

    Jenny have been thinking of you and your mom - praying that both of you are doing well. Am glad to hear you are still going to therapy and it sounds from your blogg that things might be turning around for you - and 11 pounds lost good for you. You can do it. Going back to the 12 steps of OA is a good start - I know a lot of people that have used OA and are not at a healthy weight and have been for some time - you can be one of the successful ones too.

    Take care
