Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 27, 2014

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Mine has gone pretty good till this evening. My husband warned me that telling Aunt D about the service dog would be a bad idea, but I though surely she would understand. Boy was I wrong!!

Instead of understanding she gave me a lecture opposing it and telling me how to deal with my anxiety, something she has never dealt with and from what she said is totally ignorant about. It really broke my heart. But I knew she was opinionated and obstinate and this was a possibility. I'm trying to remember that this is where she is at, and it is not about me really. But it still had my anxiety soaring and my stomach churning. I knew after the first few sentences that if I argued with her it would just cause a scene and was useless. I I just said, "I can see where you're coming from", not arguing but not agreeing.

I guess everyone has been so supportive that this is the first opposition to the idea and it was hard coming from her.

I did really good on food so far, I ate only one plate and one peice of toffee for desert!! emoticon Yay for not overeating!!

I did not go walking today. My anxiety has been high and honestly I spent a good deal of the day laying on the bed, breathing, waiting till I was feeling good enough to be around the crowd of people.

We are staying until Sunday unless I get any worse, then we will leave.

Happy Turkey Day!

    I am so sorry that hubby's aunt spoiled your day. My hubby has relatives just like that. I have learned to rarely talk. Otherwise, it leads to an argument and anxiety for me.

    Hope the rest of the visit is better. emoticon
