March update (164.8)

I'm still kickin'.

The newest thing is, I'm on an anti-anxiety medication called Buspar. I think it is helping with the small anxiety things. My p-doc prescriber is awesome at paying attention to my needs and trying new things.

The rest of my life is same old same old.

I'm not running and should be. I'm supposed to be training for a half marathon in May. Big regrets piling up around that. I'm either not going to go or I'm going to go half assed trained. I haven't decided yet. I still have time but my schedule isn't getting any better and my body is at rest and not wanting to get in motion.

I work two jobs and they are both busy. I'm not real happy at either. The kids are ok although Sophie still fights vertigo spells. She missed a week of school the week before last. It's so frustrating. I'm having her cut chocolate completely out of her diet. She would eat a little now and then and usually be ok but then sometimes have a spell every few months. We are trying a zero chocolate diet and seeing if that makes a difference.

Mark works 50-60 hours a week and is usually pretty stressed. We don't have money in the budget to hire a full time or part time assistant for him (whether that would even make a difference, I don't know--I still think he'd be overworked and stressed). Nor for me to quit my job and work for him full time. So we are just stuck with what we are doing, with me working for him a day and a half a week (lucky I can do that). It's just a hard season of our lives right now.

Sorry to not have more to say. Just wanted to send something out there to let you know I'm ok and nothing horrible has happened. I'm sorry it has been so long.

Very good to hear, but sorry you are slugging along, no fun.

Did you look to see if you have vertigo Physical Therapy available in your area? I can't remember if we have talked about that. Made a big difference for me. Not something you can internet search and do on your own. She needs a person. Good to do this now, before college.

Are you sure you do not have a half an hour a day to just do it and run? Another way to think of it - are you spending more than half an hour a day thinking about it?

(((hugs))) Glad you are still kicking along, but sorry things are not fun for you. As you said, it's just a season and soon another season will come along. Hopefully a season in which you can relax a little. :)

Hang in there Toots. I'm pulling for you. xoxo

How is summer going?

You have not gone this long without posting in a while now. You could do tiny posts for April-June to catch up so you have a record of what was happening. Or just hit June with a spring/early summer update.
