hi moneypenny!!

I am not planning yet (still waiting for the proposal), but I wanted to suggest something.  This helps me whenever I am generally burnt out, drained, useless and angsty: take a day off!

Now I’m serious!!  What I do is take a Saturday – no talking on the phone, sometimes no music or TV – and make myself something delicious and healthy for breakfast.  I’ll eat it, and then do something else where I can just ZONE out – like get a mani/pedi!!  The key for me is not calling people, not looking at things unless I need to (well…  i like my glamour and marie claire though!), and just chill!!

Usually by the time I get home I’ll watch something mindless on TV (Real Housewives, Ghost Adventures, something silly like that!!) and the next day I am 110% better!

ugh. I just want to say I am SO sorry you are having a bad time right now. And I can TOTALLY relate to you about your Fiance not wanting anything to do with the wedding.

we just had a talk (that I posted about, lol, my hubby would kill if he knew) – but he HATES that alllll my attention right now is on the wedding – which is FOUR MONTHS AWAY – and he too keeps saying “I can’t wait til this wedding is over” and granted, I’ve said that a few times too cuz it WILL be better once it’s said and done with – but for two of the three years we’ve been together, we’ve been engaged, looking FORWARD to the wedding (we are legal due to insurance he needed, but no one IRL knows cept a handful of people)…but anytime I try to include him in things about the wedding he’s like “yeah – uh-huh cool” not really paying attention and of course that pisses me off – but he tries to tell me it pisses him of that i’m just “all about the wedding” and i just don’t think HE gets we need to have a “middle ground” he just constantly wants me to do things he expects and has a hard time helping me by doing things I expect HIM to do for ME.

so anyways – I just wanted you to know – you’re not alone. weddings are SO stressful for everyone.

as for the medical stuff – would it be possible for you to find a new doc? one that would be much more helpful?

and – yeah this is coming from one stressed out bride to another – lol – maybe take one day off and do something just for yourself that’s NOT wedding related? believe me, I understand how hard that could be – but maybe we both need it! lol. πŸ˜›

anyways – I really hope you feel better and that your medical issues work their way out.

Have you had your thyroid checked? That’s the only time in my life that I’ve ever lost substantial amounts of my hair… when my thyroid levels were too low. It also made me gain weight quickly. Just wanted to suggest this, since I know from experience that doctors can be very dismissive of symptoms like this. I know iron deficiency can lead to hair loss too. Hope things get better for you!

Girl! I feel you! I totally have been feeling like that too. I’m so sorry things aren’t going perfectly right now, but the struggle is what makes you stronger. Hang in there!

((HUGS)) I def know the hair falling out feeling, I promise things will get better.  I definitely think you should take a vacay from planning for a few days and then start again.  Does the venue have anyone at the fire marshal’s office that you can contact?

When it rains it pours! It alwayssss seems like everything happens at once!!!! I know I also take on toooo many things.
I realized I’ve been stressed out because of my eating habits and not working out as much as I’d like. I felt run downand just blah about wedding planning, no work and being 3,000 miles away from friends and family.

But you know what I did? I went foodshopping with the Fiance and we bought really healthy food again to get back on track and tomorrow I’m going to La Fitness to discuss getting a membership there and joining some classes there like spinning and kickboxing. Tomorrow I’m taking a day off from wedding stuff so I don’t go crazy!

You should do the same thing. I’m so glad you were able to talk to the Fiance about this and get on the same page! Sometimes that’s all a guy needs. Anyway work one thing out at a time!! Don’t try to tackle it all at once.

I know it’s all easier said then done but it’ll be so much better for you once you get it started πŸ™‚ Good luck and feel better!
