Stress is such a pain in the butt!! I don’t have a lot of it but when I do I just can’t think straight! I honestly can’t keep my thoughts straight right now while I type to you all. I share my anxiousness with you because those of us that have children know the running around and getting from one place to the other for activities can be crazy and eventually take over!! We have a daughter and she dances and plays violin. She is on a competition dance team and it keeps her pretty busy. She takes violin lessons once a week and has to practice daily. I look at my friends with more than one child and I often wonder how they keep up. I am stressed just thinking about it!!!
My daughters dance team has their first competition this weekend in D.C. There is a lot of preparation going into it. You don’t want all the details but this is what she likes, what she does as her activity and my husband and I support her. Stress is a big trigger of seizures for me. I try to stay calm and my husband is so good about reminding me to do that – I seriously don’t need seizures in the middle of all that’s going on. I am going up with a friend but this is the first time I will be away in a hotel room with no one staying with me. I am a little nervous but trying not to be. I don’t want Elizabeth to pick up on it. I don’t really even know if a lot of people on the team know about my epilepsy. I have two friends who do and the teachers know. So I know I have them all there if I need them.
Why am I telling you all this? Because there is some marble loaf pound cake on my kitchen counter right now and I want to eat every piece in the container!!!!! That is why!! Those two paragraphs to tell you that I want to shove my face full of something that is so bad yet will taste so yummy!! I am going to step away. I have dance stuff to do so I am going to turn the music up so loud that you can hear it outside my house. I have decided that I will take the apple in the bowl next to the cake. I struggle people, every day. I have dropped the weight but I still work every day at it!! If I thought I could stop at one of the small slices maybe I would have a piece. BUT I KNOW I WON’T.
Be aware of what triggers your eating. Good Luck!!!
