This week has been one of the roughest weeks of my life. My husband woke up in the worst pain and has been in and out of the hospital for the past week. He is doing okay now, but we have to meet with a surgeon soon and I have just been so full of emotions since Friday night. All I wanted to do was watch TV until 3am-4am every night until I couldn’t keep my eyes open because it was the only thing that kept me from over thinking everything. From how we were going to pay our bills while he was out of work to praying he would be okay.
Thank god I found the show, “Young and Hungry” on Netflix because I watched all four seasons this week and it was the only thing that made me feel calm. I didn’t turn my computer on once. If I wasn’t watching TV I was taking care of my toddlers and cleaning non stop and rarely looking at my phone. I did try to stick to Nutrisystem this week, but my stomach was so upset from crying one minute to worrying the next that sometimes I didn’t eat enough. I try to be extremely honest on my journey because everyone’s journey is different so while you may not relate to this another person reading this might, so I want to be real.
My husband had an Abscess on his chest which was the way his doctor described it and he was able to cut him open in the doctors office to relieve pressure. I would go over the details of the procedure, but to write it down makes my stomach turn. He was so strong through it all. It is currently healing and it looks like he was shot in the chest with a bullet. I change his bandages everyday and he is healing great. We are not out of the water yet though because he has to make an appointment with a surgeon to see if he has to get surgery to make sure it doesn’t come back. I am praying that worst is over and that we can move on after this. I just hate seeing him in any kind of pain.
I apologize I don’t have a very creative Nutrisystem post this week. I am feeling better and my head is a little clearer and my emotions are more stable. I will do a day in the life video for my next post. I started moving the house around to help change the mood. I have done that since I was a kid. It just makes the room feel different to me and always helps me in times like this. I heard my Nana used to do the same thing. Well that is it for this week. I will check in again on Wednesday.
In other news my sister in law became a Nutrisystem customer because she saw how great I was doing and she started the beginning of Jan and has already lost 15 pounds! I am so proud of her!
