Weekend and more

Monday, February 08, 2010

I don't know what the heck happened to my brain this weekend. I think I've lost a few extra marbles. Of which the results was that I ate whatever I could that was not healthy. Two days and I'm set back by more that a kilogram for the week!

Started with last week not taking my meds as I should. Quite a few sleepless nights. A visit to the Peadiatrician, a movie and awaiting Monday morning to take my son for blood tests. I just could not stand the sight of healthy food this weekend. It all went Ok untill Friday - then I had a bite of chocolate. On Saturday all I wanted was a burger and chips, followed by ice cream and for dinner pringles with cream chease. Sunday went MUCH better, but it was not good enough, so I gained some more.

What the pediatrician said - My son is probably on too high dosage of Ritalin and might be on the wrong drug altogether - we will explore the option in a couple or so weeks. My son might have problems with his endocrine system and some hormonal imbalance. (That is probably why he has had BO since six years of age. ) He definitely has some kind of allergy that we don't know what it is of. And he has got sinus problems and glue ear - and he can't hear propperly because of that.
So this morning we took him to get blood drawn for his thyroid and for allergies and a whole lot more. He screamed like a little banchie when they stuck that needle in his arm and every time they had to put in a new vile to get filled. It was not pleasant.
However we'll have to wait for two weeks to get the results of the tests.

So this morning instead of feeling relieved that we are maybe getting closer to some kind of solution. I'm just feeling blah.
Instead of wanting to go to the gym and workout and work off the damage I've done over the weekend, I want to stay as far away as possible from there.
I could just as well crawl back into bed and stay there the rest of the week.

I haven't started a Monday off feeling like this for a long, long time. Guess I'll just have to get over myself.

    My son took Ritalin. And then Concerta. I heard there are some new medications out there. He is off them altogether now. Puberty was the best thing that ever happened to that kid. His behaviors did a 180 (well, except for the recent smoking fiasco!)!

    I broke down and had some ice cream on Saturday -- and some pie and chocolate!

    Hmmmm...well I wonder if any of your sons health issues are yours. You know, like my parents both have arthritis, so I'll probably get it too. And they are both struggling with Type 2 diabetes, which as we know is food induced, so if I'm headed that way too, I'm trying to prevent it now. Anyway, sometimes looking at blood relatives health issues can reveal some of your own, which makes me think you can use the information in reverse too. Just a thought.
    Have a good week. I'm sure you would LOVE that!

    I am so sorry you are going through all of this as stress can cause us to eat all the wrong things. I am the total opposite, when I am stressed I can't/don't eat and that's just as bad.

    Hang in there sweetie, things will get better. Hope everything is good with your son. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Sorry to hear about your son, I think kids being sick, unhappy, hurt are a mothers No1 sadness. On the score of just having a BITE of chocolate, that's why I abstain when it comes to sweets, junk food, fizzy drinks etc. One bite and its all fall down for me. So, I just plain quit them all for this whole year. Who knows I may never bother with the little horrors again, but we'll see. I just need this year to get my body back into health and shape. I'll consider the following years when I get there.

    Karen, maybe a emoticon & a FEW emoticon will help you and your son at this time. Emotional eating is a derailment I truly understand, as well as have comlete empathy for wha you are going through at this time where your son's health is concerned. You will both be in my toughts and prayers. You are in my thoughts at this tme.
