What a week I'm having!
I can't handle domestic problems. My stepson has decided, at the age of 12, to start the rebellious stage. I probably shouldn't give the details, but in a nutshell he is faking sick to get out of school at least once a week, lighting matches (then lying about it), and running away down the street to the local KFC. When found, he had his backpack with him that contained a Gameboy, Gameboy games, a couple of books, 50$ and a steak knife. You know, all the necessities of life. He lives with his mom, so we are hearing about all of this over the phone, but my husband is all stressed-out and fit-to-be-tied. No one knows what to do. The first thing that comes to my mind is: Whack him with a newpaper and put him in the crate? Probably why I don't, and shouldn't have kids. :-D

On top of that, I can't find the energy to do the laundry, the dishes and generally get out of bed. I don't know if its a touch of depression, or just being overwhelmed by life itself. The smallest tasks are frightening me. I have also had 3 iced mochas this week. with regular milk. Its the only way to cope, I'm telling you.

Sorry to hear about your stepson. Kids can just be one big ol pain in the rearend sometimes. You might want to seriously consider getting your thyroid checked out. If it's functioning right it can cause just that type of lethargy and tiredness.

This is how I've been feeling on and off for the past couple months. It doesn't last long and I can't tell you if its depression or not. Try chainging your schedule up a bit. That might work.

What is it that bugs you most right now: working out or clean eating. I know they are both hard to do, but try to pick the easier one and just do that and not even worry about the other. Things will turn around befre you know it. An be sure to hang out with your friends as much as possible. That sure helps a little margarita or summin'.
