PositivelyTired

73d

I really want to stop taking so many prescriptions, sleep longer hours and have energy. You get the idea.
I love doing crafts, baking, being mobile for my grandchildren and taking trips with my husband. Unfortunately, I'm barely able to get out of bed most days. I need encouragement and understanding of my situation.

      I'm getting to the point I don't want to go to the doctor anymore. It seems like they find something new every month.

    One day at a time I've worked towards the same thing less meds. Lost over 100lbs have more energy. I pushed myself to get out and walk. By listening to a book while I walk or to music

      I only need to lose 15 pounds. I've taken prednisone for my lungs for over 20 years so I have severe bone loss. I fell from a standing position, I found out later my blood pressure drops when I'm upright, and broke both my legs. I've broken so many bones. So, I can't get out and walk.

    Any leg exercise even laying in bed counts as exercise like leg lifts or Scissor kicks. If it's your diet cut some of the carbs eat more veggies

    I'm glad you brought that up. I'm tired of nurses asking, "you take ALL of these prescriptions?" There are people who say, "I wouldn't take the meds, ill barely take an aspirin!". They are dangerous to me and I'm sure others. I start thinking that I can be fine without my meds. But no I can't. It's dangerous thinking. I too wish I could do the things I used to do with my grandson, but the pain shows me that I can't do those things anymore. I hate that but the more I think about what I used to be like, the more I resent others abilities. But when I accept my disabilities, I can focus on the good things I can do and acceptance of my conditions makes room for gratitude for the other positives in my life. There are others out there who are in worse shape than we are. We can do things that others cannot, gratitude.

    Yes, I get the idea and I too take way to many meds. Every time I see my psychiatrist he throws more pills at me. Then I Google what I'm taking and am mortified by what I might be doing to myself. I don't want do much of anything any more. YouTube has become my best friend. It make sad to remember all the things I used to do. I blame it on my age but wonder all the time if it has to be this way or if there are steps I can take to feel just a little motivated again. I used to think that I could accomplish anything.

      it’s a hard life stage to go thru, that’s for sure. It’s difficult to decide if it’s depression/ anxiety or the meds I take. He started me on abilify and I lost my mind. 🤷‍♀️
