I have no idea what the difference is?! something that I need to learn more about for sure. As I mentioned in my last post I stopped taking the meds...mostly cuz with the sale of our house up North I felt instantly relieved and a whole lot better! I didn't feel down...didn't feel the need to medicate and being on the meds is not something I want or had planned to do for a long period of time.
So I stopped...and didn't tell my Dr...yet! and about 2 days after I stopped...so did my sleeping! so now I am not sure what to do. I will go see my Dr but meantime it has left me wondering how much anxiety has to play with my mind and body. I realize stress/anxiety are huge players in ones body and mine being covered in eczema I know it is affecting me and the sleepless nights...I am getting up at all hours and bingo bango I am WIDE awake...having to put a movie on to help me go back to sleep..J is thrilled!! uh hem.... so last night I took one of my pills and stayed up as last as I could and I slept through...albeit a little groggy this morning, thankfully it is a day off for me.
I need to figure out how to deal with the stress in my life and as I am managing a new business... a from scratch business...I don't think that the stress is really going to go away magically anytime soon. I did join a gym, think that will help somewhat, I bought art supplies so I can paint regularly, I think that will help.. I need to go for walks....buy an organizer...and maybe hire an assistant! My sister suggested I go to a high school Coop program and I think that is a great idea, I am just not sure I am up for training anyone right now :)
If anyone has any other tips for dealing with stress/anxiety I am open!!
On a completely different topic we watched Jamie Oliver's revolution last night on tv....wow what a great show! we are going to rent Food Inc and we have already started making some changes in what we buy food wise...our youngest is "overweight"... we know it and want to help her in a healthy approach...not in a hey you're fat you need to loose weight attitude....but a lets get healthy! she starts soccer soon and I know that the exercise will help...and we are getting our pool swimable...all good things! the attitude of the people in the school Jamie was trying to help was staggering....they did NOT want him there...their ideas of what was healthy was mind blowing, had no problem with not knowing what the majority ingredients were in the frozen food products cuz the first one listed was chicken and so the rest didn't matter...scary! how many have that attitude? it's amazing how deep the levels of this go...a natural conspiracy theorist myself!!! I think what corporations, money, greed, and politics have done to the world is scary. But like Jamie said revolution can happen, change can happen... one family at a time.
This family has already started to make changes and will be making more and more... what are your thoughts on this?
