My health decline

Friday, August 28, 2020

2020 has been an incredibly hard and stressful year. I know most everyone feels that way. In February, I was introduced to one of my worst nightmares. Something very stressful. I was already facing my disability appeal. Then, my Daddy died in May. Completely crushing my world. I’ve had to retain an attorney I can’t afford and I’m having a lot of health issues right now. I had similar problems when I was this overweight before. My depression is worse.

    I'm so sorry emoticon to hear about your daddy. I lost mine 46 years ago and continue to miss him, but I know he made it to heaven and I can be with him eternally. My MIL just died yesterday, so we know what you're going through. Prayers. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I’m so sorry about your losses. It’s completely understandable that your depression is worse. Your stress level is very high. This is a good time for a lot of kindly self care. Try scheduling in your worry time. If you can, make an appointment with yourself to have a worry-fest for 20 minutes, once per day. When that time comes, give yourself over to it in whatever way gives you some release...for 20 minutes. When the time has ended, gently guide your mind elsewhere. It may wander back to the worry department. When that happens, just notice it, and without judgement, gently guide your mind back to thinking on other things. Keep repeating this as many times as you need to. Remind yourself that worry is allowed, but only for that 20 minute time period each day. This will allow your mind and body time to rest and recharge. Remember to write down three things that you’re grateful for each day and think about those things often. Hydrate well. Nourish yourself with a variety of wholesome foods. Get a little sunshine on your face. Make sure that you get enough sleep at night. Do at least 10 minutes of exercise per day. Read an uplifting book. You can do this my friend. Love yourself with all the love you have to give! You are deserving of this loving, tender care. emoticon emoticon emoticon
