Feeling Good Again

Monday, January 16, 2012

After having a total meltdown over the weekend, I think I am on the way to returning to my "normal" self-whatever normal is. I know I will continue to have my ups and downs going thru this but I think letting myself go was just what I needed. Sometimes we just need to let ourselves express our emotions or it builds inside and that isn't good.
My dear DH has been a rock thru all of this and I appreciate him even more for his support. I know he is dealing with a lot right now with his radiation and the hot flases from the hormone shot he had to have. He has been very tired and the dr suggested he nap after the treatment but with all that has been going on that has not happened as much as it should so I am hoping now I can let him do that so he can heal and get better.
I got up this morning and did the little bit of ironing I had and then it was off to the gym with my friend. I have been doing things at home for exercise, but it is good to get back into our routine. We did not push ourselves too hard since she has a bum knee and trying to protect it she has hurt her back. I am just getting over my cold and still not feeling the most energetic but I got in some good cardio and did an abbreviated regimen of the weights. Tomorrow we plan to shoot for a longer session.
When we got home, I ate breakfast and gave DH a haircut before heading out to work in the garden. I spent another hour out there and filled a big bag and only got 1/3 of the way thru the bed. Had to quit in time to get cleaned up to take DH to his radiation treatment.
We decided to stop and visit with friends on the way home as we have only seen them once since they got down here in Oct. Had a nice visit but couldn't stay too long as DH had to go have blood drawn.
Tomorrow is another day and it will be back to the gym and more weeds!!!!

    Tears are so cleansing...glad you had your meltdown. It had to fell good just to let go and have a good cry. So glad you are feeling better and now you can focus on you and your DH. Hope he is able to get a nap or rest after his treatments. He will be surprised at what a difference that will make.
    Blessings and hugs,

    I"m glad you're feeling better. Don't feel bad about having a meltdown. You're entitled to that with all that you're going through right now. emoticon

    Yay!! I'm so glad you have your dh and your gym buddy! I hope dh gets some good rest and recovers quickly.
    It's true for me too, I'm a hot mess if I try to suck in my emotions. You especially deserve some meltdowns with all you've had happening. Not that I'm wishing them on you, though:)
    Have fun with the weeds, that's strength training, right?!

    I like to be busy when I am emotional. It is good to not "stuff" any emotions. Tears are the faucet of the heart.

    I thought I got all the thistles out of a flowerbed, but though they are wilted from the cold, there are still some in there.

    I hope your husband starts getting a nap after his treatments. It is hard to go on when you are tired. He may not be able to push himself to keep up to you while he is going through this radiation.

    You are doing just great really...you have had so much to deal with, I bet it felt great to get back to the gym. Sometimes endorphins are the best medicine to cure what ails us....and, like you say, that and a good cry....or meltdown. Emotions can't be pent up very successfully, can they?

    Geting back to normal will take awhile but you can pace yourself
    a little and focus. You have been so distracted with other things
    but now, it is time for you and DH. Take care, hugs!
