Just wondering how many ladies

Posted , 12 users are following.

hi all,

Just wondering how many of you lovely ladies are like me? I used to wake up with so much positive energy for the day just a couple years ago. Start off the day with yoga before heading to work and looking forward to relaxing in the evening and fun things to do on the weekend.

Now I wake up and it takes a moment for it all to sink in. Then I am like the tin man ..carefully relax and get out of bed to check what hurts today. From shoulders, arms, wrist, fingers ..knees. Usually its something every day and then head to the mirror to check for dry face. Its so hard to deal with the anxiety crashing down every morning. I expect to wake up one day and see an old woman looking back at me very soon 

    Yep, I used to pop out of bed... eager to take care of my toddlers or whatever it was I had to do for the day.. No problems... Now years later It's just different.. Today I woke up with doom and gloom with aniexty which leads to a headache.. : ( My left elbow is achy for whatever reason. What is going on with me? Ugh... I think I'm ready for the old folks home at the ripe age of 50.. Hope we feel better soon!!

    All of you ladies described me perfectly. I dread seeing the morning come because I know it will be the same old crap as the day before. Hoping to see the light at the end of this long tunnel.

    Dear Ladies,

    Hang in there, you are not alone. So many of us are feeling all these ....'feels like crazy dont know whats happening' kind of thing. I have been on the forum for some time now and some of you may have read my post. I am a Christian and after long travelling, back and forth to so many specialist doctors, so many pills, I discovered PRAYING and asking God to help me and provide for me is the only answer. Nevertheless, I am human too and sometimes I forget how awesome He is. My thoughts take control, and all negativity sets in. Thats when I feel pain on my breast, my insides, muscles, both arms, neck, head and even eye. Then I will remember, WHY DO I FOCUS ON ALL THE BAD THINGS HAPPENING TO ME? I Will then remember to pray. Parying is talking to God in whatever situation , whatever I am doing. 2 nights ago while cooking dinner, I can feel I am slowly feeling bad. I took my BP,its normal (for my age, 58). I was light headed, nauseous, gassy, but I have to cook for my family. So in the kitchen, when I looked out the window, I saw it was getting dark already,but there'sa tiny light still peeping. That triggered me to remember...MANAGE YOUR THOUGHTS EDNA, YOUR BATTLE IS GODS BATTLE. ASK HIM FOR HELP. So I prayed. I talked to God while I was cooking.

    By dinner time, I was feeling myself again. I fact, I felt so good I wanted to go out to the pub.😅

    These too will come to pass ladies.

    God Bless us all.
