Recently, with my health issues taking precedence in my life I decided to start this blog away from the all seeing eyes of my friends and family on Facebook so I can express myself without the concern of someone reading me wrong, etc. Not to mention, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for me to put anything serious on Facebook – I’m not sure why, perhaps that is a thought for another blog down the road. =P Maybe time to whittle down my friends list.
I realize that every one of my family and friends may find my blog and honestly I hope they read and enjoy it and not find anything to take offensively, but if they do it is because of the eyes they are using not the keys I am typing on.
There is a characteristic within me which I find difficult to comprehend and address. I am a ridiculously avid worry wort and it has added to my health problems. I used to think that it was mostly the bit of weight I’d put on and the hermit I became but recently while keeping track of my blood pressure it has become increasingly apparent that when someone I care for is having a difficult time, my bp goes up.
So, while I’m here working on my health, not working so my stress level stays low, I still have this to contend with.
Admittedly, the bp isn’t hitting warning levels yet but avoiding that is the goal.
My current worries:
- My friend with heart issues acting up again
- A few friends with health issues they are working on
- A friend who is wonderful but alone
- Family issues
- A friend who is in a nasty divorce case
- My husband’s son who doesn’t call
- Another friend who is wonderful but alone
That’s all I can come up with at 2:00 am but I’m sure there’s more.
