Company Girl Coffee 4-17-09

April 17, 2009

Welcome back for coffee today. It's a bit rainy and PMDD is at a peak with me right now. Although I do have to say I think we are getting very close to figuring out my meds. I am very run down and have almost no energy but instead of just laying down and letting all the little things overwhelm me, I'm able to look at the bigger picture. Now for instance I need to get the dishes done, write up a grocery list, go grocery shopping, and LJ has a soccer game tonight. (Oh yeah they play rain or shine, ugh!!!) So I just put CJ down for a nap, the boys are in an electronic trance and I decided to pour myself a cup of luke-warm coffee and work on my blog just long enough to relax. I know the things above don't seem like major things to stress out about, but with PMDD it becomes the very center of my world and I become so overwhelmed I can't function or that was how things were. I'm able to realize when my emotions are in overdrive now and can regain control over how I'm thinking. The tiredness hasn't gone away and I'll be talking with the doctor about that next Friday, but one step at a time and at least we are going in the right direction. So if you don't mind, I'm off to do my dishes and write out my grocery list. Shopping will have to wait till tomorrow and maybe we'll just order a pizza for dinner????

Here are two sites I dropped by this week and thought you might enjoy them also:

Dear Father, may our hearts be able to yell out to the world as David did:"you'll not separate me from God in life or death. The absurdity!" As we come to understand how little we have to do with our salvation and how much Christ gave for us to be reconciled to You, may we walk down the path of sanctification and not get the two confused. Our Salvation is Christ's work for us and our Sanctification is Christ's work in us. In Jesus name we pray, Amen

You need a huge hug today, Brandy! (((HUGS))) I hope that your doctor gets you the right prescription so you can be feeling better. You should not have to feel that ill each month--I will say a prayer you are on the right path with meds, etc.

I couldn't sleep well last night, so I got up and did some orders. I have some great coffee right now, which makes the early morning that much better. :o)

I appreciated today's prayer--thank you!

Pizza sounds great! perfect for a Friday night. I did not realize that you had this disorder! What a rotten thing. It sounds like there is some hope on the horizon (I followed the link) and I do hope you will find it soon.

In the meantime, I'm amazed at all you are able to do. I bow in humbleness. :)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Friday nights were MADE for pizza! Hope you enjoyed it! It sounds like you accomplish a great deal, in spite of the PMDD. I pray that the meds have you on the right track and that your life becomes a little easier around 'that time of the month.'

Have a blessed weekend!

I appreciate your sharing about your disorder. I've never heard of it, but certainly understand the debilitating effects that physical & mental disorders can have on life, even with the smallest or simplest of tasks.

Sending you hugs & prayers.

And yet you're still able to cross things off your to-do list. You are amazing. I pray that God will just bless you, and give you the comfort that you need.

Take care.

Thank you for sharing. I've often wondered if I have PMDD because when that time comes it takes EVERYTHING I have not to lose it over a dirty cup left on the counter, and the complete lack of energy is something I understand. Something I certainly will mention to my doctor this year. And I agree Pizza and Friday nights are the perfect mix! Hope you're feeling better soon.
