I was hoping I wouldn’t get caught up in the stress of everything, but it’s eventually come to me breaking down and posting on the emotional board.
I think it’s a culmination of everything, but today I feel so downtrodden. I just need a pick me up, ladies.
1) January: Miscarried
2) February: Went wedding dress shopping, had the worst time with it, and had a wedding dress tear in the dressing room with the attendant
2a) Bought a house, and fought with the seller over her breach of contract
3) March: Got accepted into a national honor’s society, made plans to attend the ceremony for induction, then received a letter in the mail saying “OOPS! Wrong group of students. You don’t have enough credits after all. Sorry.” Yeah, thanks a lot. I already invited people to this banquet, now I have to embarrass myself and tell everyone I’m not as great a student as I thought.
4) This might be the kicker. I’ve been dong so well dieting since February, and have lost a little more than 10 lbs, but I still *FEEL* huge. I asked Fiance to take pictures of me so I can see progress, but I can’t, and it’s catching up with me. I feel like I’m failing. Realistic or not, I just feel so down trodden right now. I think it’s partly hormonal because my 29 year old body hasn’t exactly gotten back on track since the surprise pregnancy / miscarriage. I also feel myself saying, “What’s the point” with trying to stay on my diet, and even worse, studying for midterms, or even reading simple little chapters after school.
Has anyone else gotten this down and out? I’m not suicidal by any means, but I feel a weepy moment coming on for no apparent reason. Help me snap out of it ladies. Please. Tomorrow will be a better day, just help me get through tonight.

@StuporDuck: you poor thing!! Those are some pretty devastating events to happen in just a few months. You sound like you are coping fairly well. In the end you know how awesome you are. You are a great student and you will eventually get that honor. You will have babies with your awesome SO when the time is right and live happily ever after. Not sure if I helped but tomorrow will be better. I was getting stressed about everything. It just seemed like nothing was working out and honestly walking helped me. I got out every night, just me and the ipod. I prob sang a little too loud but not only is it helping me lose weight but its helping me clear my mind and come up with better ideas. Might be worth a try? ;P

hugs hugs hugs!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds like you’ve had ALOT on your plate… excitement to disappointment. My heart totally breaks for you!
It will definitely get better! Don’t loose hope in what you’re working for (your diet) you will start “feeling it”…. it has been that long since your pregnancy and it’s gonna take some time for your body to catch up.
idk if you’re on s.b. or not but try and just breath and relax… tests come and go and I promise they won’t be as bad as they seem 😉
Sorry about the dealing in the housing.. hope they did get squared away. =)
Try dress shopping again another day… and try and laugh about the mishap… (i know… but try)
I’m definitely going to be praying for you in this time as it really seems you’re just getting bombarded… praying peace, comfort, clarity, wisdom, guidance, joy, protection, and decisive leading (matthew 6:33 seek first and ALL these things will be added unto you)… that your studyings will come with ease and order, that as your put the information in the holy spirit will be faithful to bring it out (even if you don’t understand it b/c He has perfect understanding).. that you and your Fiance will grow closer in this time and be more unified than ever before and that friends around you will uplift you and encourage you! in Jesus name!

@StuporDuck: Hang in there! We all go through dark periods in our life. Doesn’t help that it’s winter either – the cold, drab weather doesn’t do much to pick up spirits.
Stick to your diet and EXERCISE – that could be a huge key to releasing some of this stress! Sometimes when I feel angry I go for a run and I feel so amazing afterwards, just blowing off steam. Not to mention, losing weight and toning up will also greatly improve your self esteem.

@StuporDuck: I’m sorry you’re going through this. I think it’s a great thing you’ve turned to the bee, because no better place to get the support and listening ear you need. Sounds like it’s a lot to go through, but you cannot let your emotions get the best of you (i’ve been through some rough patches in the past 6 months myself). Of course, it’s easier said than done. I’d say just keep making small goals when it comes to your diet. Exercise is good too, as it does relieve stress as the PP said. I admit, i nearly let everything going on get the best of me to the point where i just did not want to do ANYTHING and i started avoiding certain things too! It was when I started making smaller goals for myself to achieve that it helped me get through.
*hugs* i hope things work out for the better for you and keep coming back to the bee, we’ll be here for you!

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate it. I knew a good night’s sleep would help me. I feel a lot better this morning, and I’m ready for another beautiful day! If nothing else, the vacation Fiance and I are taking at the end of the week to Florida should perk us up. Both of us have been really stressed out with this wedding / house / legal junk that we decided a trip away from everything was in order. Luckily his family has some property there so it won’t be expensive. 🙂
Thanks again helper bees. I knew I turned to you guys for a reason.
