toots2889 - December 10

Hello everyone! Im so sorry I havent been posting, but I have been on checking on everyone. I think I have the winter blues or something as I just havent been myself and I dont know whats wrong with me. Ive been emotional, confused, stressed, and not in the mood for the holidays even. My bodys been playing havoc on me and im trying so hard to keep my head on straight. Ive also been extremely tired, and feel like I could sleep the whole day away. Im probably rambling and making no sense right now. Thats why Ive been afraid to try and help anyone else right now when im such a mess. Once again im sorry for not being there for all of you right now,but please know in your hearts that i am. In case i dont feel up to posting again before x-mas, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Be safe and know im always here for you.

toots2889 - I'm sorry to read that you are not feeling good right now. You actually made perfect sense in your post. What the heck is going on? Do you think it might be hormones? You should get your levels checked. If you don't see a counselor than maybe you should.

You've had a tough year on top of dealing with our good buddy FMS. Who wouldn't be frazzled. My super woman tights are fitting too well these days either so you are not alone. If you are having a bad time, you need to share so we can help. That is what this board is all about. Hang in there and don't be a stranger. Merry Christmas to you with better health and happiness in the coming New Year!

Hi toots - I'm so sorry you are having a hard time right now. I think the weather and the stress of the holidays wreak havoc on our bodies. I've had some MAJOR upsets this past week and I'm doing everything I can (mentally) to stay positive and keep going with a smile on my face. But I can tell you it hasn't been easy!

We started the month off with a letter from unemployment stating that we had been "over paid" and our checks have been abruptly cut off early. With no money and no food and Christmas coming....it's been so hard to keep a smile on my face and reassure my kids that everything will be okay. We might not have many gifts for Christmas, but we have to be thankful for what we do have.

I've also been trying to get food stamps all week and they are so busy that it's taking FOREVER just to get an appt to see if we can get them. In the mean time...I've got a wonderful friend who is helping us with some food. She has reminded me that the true meaning of Christmas is TO GIVE. She has absolutely nothing and for her to instantly offer help to us without a second thought really reminded that we need to be thankful and not focus on the bad stuff.

We are also trying to run a choose and cut tree business. It's for my in-laws and we are working probably 12 hours a day without any pay. I'm totally okay with not being paid, but the work is about to kill me. No matter how much I want this business to make money and grow in the future...this morning when I woke up to it pouring down rain, I was so happy that the weather was too bad for too many people to show today!

anyways....I guess I needed to get that all out, but I'm also saying all of this because I want everyone who reads this to remember that no matter how bad it all seems right now....it WILL get better. I've read a few posts on here this morning and everyone seems to be having a hard time....whether it's physical, mental, financial, or whatever....We all need to remember to focus on the good stuff in our lives.

I keep telling myself that if we didn't go through the "bad times" then we wouldn't be able to appreciate the "good times."

Take care of yourself, Toots....hang in there...it will get better. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Stacey :o)

I've been using this lightbox light therapy to help divert some of the winter blues. I love it, it makes me feel much better. I am even getting a tan from it lol!

Gee, I can attest to those symptoms alot these days, and have figured that the weather is to blame. In Ontari Canada (southern west of Ontario) we have had lots of snow, London Ontario was hit the worst, with transit, closed school out for 3 days because of the bus service to the country. I have felt so tired lately and have just wanted to sleep. I had a major depressin after I left working. I have no energy, and even cry at the carols being sung. I lost my husband 7 years ago December 1st, so it is a difficult month to get through. Now, I am seeing an 88 year old neighbour for the last five years, and I know what is coming- that really gets me down. I hate winter.I feel the say toots, that I could not help anyone when I am this down. However, our church is putting on a christmas pagaent the next week, and I am going along with my friend and one the the girls that go to plays in Port Dover. We have to get their early so Warren can be up frong and hear. I know Fantod will be at the keyboard on Monday to read this sob story from me.!!!!!!!!ad sod
