Last week and new beginnings this week

Last week was a really tough week.  My mood was incredibly low, as was my patience.  There were many stressors in regards to deliveries, appointments, and feedback (or lack thereof) in regards to Roger’s academic progress.  My week was filled with many thoughts all over the place and total lack of focus.

Today I have decided to try and get back into the swing of things.  This is a theme of my life:  out-of-whack week followed by an in-focus week (or attempt to that).  So, today I have focused on work, exercise, my weekly schedule (and Roger’s), and some laundry and garbage chores.

Today, I had a podiatrist appointment (I need orthotics due to some feet issues).  He politely stressed that I need to be healthier.  I couldn’t agree more.  I am hoping my motivation can remain.  It comes and goes so quickly!

I have a new therapist appointment on Friday of this week.  She is a “psychotherapist”.  I am not sure how different that is from the counseling I have received in the past.  I hope this time I “click” with the therapist.  I always do some on-line research when I make appointments.  On FB, I saw that she “liked” the God Delusion, so that is a positive to me!

  1. Hi Leah, Glad to hear you are more optimistic this week. I think I know what God Delusion is. Those people who believe in God are delusional, is that right? If I felt that way I would have to say brain washed. The church starts with children at 5:00 years old. I still remember those early teachings. The teacher: Who made the world? Students” God made the world. Who made God” GOD is now, always was, and always will be. Do you remember! God is another word for your higher power, for some it’s music, others nature, it could be anything that soothes you when you are upset and unsettled. I think it’s the last thing you should be discussing with a psychotherapist! It is universally known that people of science do not believe in God. Belief in God is a choice. If the teachings of the Lord give you comfort, that is a good thing! In disasters most people turn to God. Communities come together, people of all nations come together all to pray to a higher power to deliver us from such evil. Again, you choose to believe. I’m sorry to be running off at the mouth to you, but sweetheart, your troubles are real and not just in your mind. I believe that you need help in the house. I don’t know if you can afford someone to help cook, clean, do laundry, things that would free you up to concentrate on you job, your appointments, and Roger and Rob. Give yourself a break. You really need. I love you girl!
