Things I do to feel better

The last week I have desperately tried everything I know to relax and calm down as I have felt huge stress , so much that I had a high pulse rate and probably high blood pressure and sleeping difficulties .I felt so miserable and decided I have to do all I can to stop this
I have never done so many stress-reliefing activities before :

-Went for acupressure
-Listened to slow calming music whenever Im at home or driving .
-Jogging to get physically exhausted .
-Went to the beach on my day off and spent a few hours just relaxing / sleeping / reading in the sun.
-Continue to go to therapy sessions .
-Blogging and absorbing love and support and prayers from my wonderful blogger friends :)
-Writing to do lists to get organized and feel more in control.
-Attending a huge party with Hubby ( with no little children involved )

And I have to say IT WORKS !!!!
Thanks God , it works .

I feel better than I have done in a long time .
We had great fun at the party , talking to nice people and dancing .
I was able to really enjoy it .
My therapist keeps boosting my selfconfidence by reiterating to me that I dont have to get over things right now , that I can get over them when Im ready to do so and as a paradox it makes it easier to get over when you feel you dont have too!
I dont have to feel useless for not being able to get over things .
Not that Im totally over my grief or anything but I have been able to function quite well this week side by side with the grief .
I have even downloaded some photos that I wanted to post a long time ago but never had the energy to do .


  1. I am so glad that you are finding ways to feel good and make it through. I might steal an idea or two as well. I've been reading nonstop. It helps my mind to get involved in an imaginary place. Keeps my mind off of things in my real life:) I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

  2. Angie,

    I am glad that you feel better and have had a good week. I pray that spills over into this weekend and even into next week. Know that i am thinking of you and sending you lots of love and Hugs. p.s. Love this new background.

  3. I'm so happy you are endulging in yourself and taking time to do things that make you feel at peace. Often times we are so overwhelmed with stress that we can't seem to function...and I can relate to not being able to sleep.

    Keep living in what I refer to as "the zone"...I love it when I am in the zone and feel good and can find peace and some happiness :)


  4. Of COURSE you don't have to get 'over this' in any time frame!!!! You are doing an amazing job of coping and learning how to live your life without your sweet little one.

    That's a task so many never are forced to there's NO rule book and you are doing great.

    Glad you've had some better times!
