Did I admit defeat?

Defeat

I recently wrote about my trip to a NASCAR race where I had a panic attack and told hubby I would go visit the doctor to talk about my anxiety.

I made the long over due appointment with my doctor.   Hubby has been trying to convince me to see my doctor about my anxiety for over 20 years.  Many times over the years he has asked me why I haven’t just went to the doctor since the anxiety is overtaking my life.

The Right Foods Can Change Your Life

right foods


Food is a subject that consumes the minds of many people. If you think about it, there isn’t a single day that goes by where it doesn’t cross your mind. Even if you are not obsessed with the thought of food, there is no reason why you shouldn’t let it occupy your brain sometimes so you can start making better decisions regarding your diet.
Eat Right for Your Health
Every food that is available doesn’t mean that it is a good enough for you to consume. Some foods tend to have an adverse effect on some people. What you may find tasty and filling may not be so for others. You can rely on expert opinions to help you to make good decisions about what you should be eating, but at the end of the day, you know best. You know how your body responds to them. Use that information to guide your food decisions so you can make better selections and protect your health.
Quit Skipping Meals
You live a busy life and sometimes you can’t seem to find the time you need to eat, so you go several hours at a time in-between meals. This is a very bad behavior that can really impact your health in a negative manner. Your body needs food to sustain itself so it can function. When you don’t provide it with this fuel every so many hours, it has to rely on fuel it has stored. This could be very hazardous to your health.

Stepping into my brain during a panic attack

panic attack

I have always wanted to go to a NASCAR race for as long as I have been a fan.  For me, it was a bucket list item, but I also struggle from anxiety, and have recently been diagnosed with Agoraphobia.

When my hubby first suggested we should go to a race, I had a panic attack. I said I don’t know if we should do that. I couldn’t comprehend the hugeness of it all. I felt overwhelmed, and hubby said ok, but don’t let your anxiety keep you from living your life.  He just left me with the idea.

Road Trippin’ around Canada this Summer

IMG_8269

Our family loves doing fun family staycations, or road trips.  Last year, we ended up going to Santa’s Village, and staying at the campgrounds.   The boys loved playing at the amusement park, and then camping at Santa’s camp grounds!  They even got to see him in the morning with Mrs. Claus.  Bracebridge is a beautiful place to visit, and not that far of a road trip.
