STRESS - Help

Friday, March 25, 2016

It has been a long time since I blogged. I write in my food journal every day but today I felt like I needed more. I really don't have a lot of stress but I do get very upset and then I eat the wrong stuff.....like chocolate....and I will eat it until it is out of sight. Last night did it for me. My beloved husband broke (another) my last favorite wine glass from a set of four. I know that doesn't sound like much to some but to me it meant a lot. Thankfully it wasn't one of my crystal ones.. It was special because it would hold 3.5 oz of my favorite wine....not a lot but enough to satisfy the taste. I love my husband but in the almost 12 years we have been married he has broken more glasses, cups and a very nice tea pot that I loved. A lot of the things were sentimental to me and can't be replaced.....I know they are just "things" but they were my things. Why are men so clumsy. My husband is very helpful.....I do the cooking and most of the time he will do the dishes......he likes to do the laundry and I fold it all, mostly because he can't fold.

I am trying to find a way to get through the times of emotional eating without pigging out. I usually have a hard time around the Holiday's because of all the baking and candy making I do but that is slowly getting better. NOW, I need to find a way to get through the times when my dear husband breaks something of mine that he knows I like. Funny thing.....when he broke my tea pot ....he hid it in his closet and of course I found it but left it for him to toss out. I know he means well and I still love him but it just seems like you want to yell at him or you want to say something stupid like "why can't I have anything nice that you won't break". I know it's just material things but they meant something to me. Don't worry I won't toss him out like he did to my tea pot......we've known each other since 7th grade so, I'll keep him and the stress too.

Thanks everyone for letting me vent ........

    Maringal........thanks for your nice comment. I too use to use my crystal and nice stuff for big dinners but those days are all gone. I'm trying not to be upset with my husband but it's just that he breaks everything and they aren't the good stuff, just stuff that meant something to me......like all but one mug I have left that belonged to my "last" uncle from a family of 14. I know I shouldn't get upset but I'm getting tired of going to the Cancer society and buying my glasses because he breaks them. In fact, yesterday he came home with 4 wine glasses.......he's trying.

    I use to save my good crystal and china for only special occasions because I was so afraid of breakage. Then I realized how silly my mindset was so I decided to do some deep thinking and change my priorities. No longer do I save anything for that special time to use my good dishes or crystal wine glasses. Every thing is replaceable and therefore my attachment level is quite realistic. I love my things but if they break... Oh well! There are too many things in life that are so much important, I.e. One's health. I hope you don't give your husband a difficult time when he breaks something, I'm sure it was never done on purpose!
