I’m fine

I’m fine

Living with anxiety is: constantly feeling like people you know deep down love you don’t actually like you at all. feeling like you can’t do anything right and doubting everything. Being afraid to show who you really are for fear that you will be judged. Lying in bed at night not being able to sleep because your brain won’t turn off. Not being able to go to amusement parks with kids because just the though of crowds make your skin crawl, or get on roller coasters designed for kids because you have no control.

Anxiety creeped up on me. It’s not something I have had my whole life. I can’t even really pin point when it got so bad. I think I manage it well but then I take my kids to the park, or am riding shot gun and I have a freak out moment. I’ve never had a full blown panic attack. I get chest pains and I get really overwhelmed. According to my husband I also get really mean. It’s something i’m trying to deal with, but it’s a daily battle. Most of my anxious thoughts are self doubt and feeling inadequate. Thinking my friends just put up with me, that my husbands going to leave me, that i’m going to get fired from my job. It’s not a fun disease to deal with.

There’s really no point to this blog, no lesson. Just ramblings from a girl who suffers with anxiety and hasn’t found anything that really works to help. I am holding down hope for when medical marijuana becomes available. I have read great reviews on how it’s helped others. I use to smoke, now I feel like when I smoke it makes me paranoid, which makes me more anxious and I don’t like that feeling. Maybe with the medical grade that’s bred just for anxiety i’ll find some relief. Until then, I’ll be here, smiling but freaking out on the inside.

I hate sports

I hate sports

I am a NFL widow that used to work for Orlando Animal Control. Every football season I lose my husband. Glued to the T.V. or out with the boys to watch games. I don’t like sports, never have. Maybe it’s because I grew up without a dad. Maybe it’s because after years of cheer-leading I still don’t really understand the game. I think it’s just my natural reaction to rebel. My husband is obsessed with the game, therefore I naturally want to dislike it. Either way, from August – February my husbands world revolves around football, and not just his favorite team either. He is one of those guys who keeps up with the stats and who’s ahead in each conference or whatever it’s called.  His mood fluctuates with the scores, he yells at the TV, he argues with complete strangers over which team will make it to the play offs and why his team is better than theirs. It’s really annoying and I really wish it would stop.

The only issue is, at the end of football comes Basketball Season. I can’t win.

Buckeye Champs!

Buckeye Champs!

The buckeyes have a strong legacy in the Olympic games. They have sent over 200 athletes and have earned a combined 106 medals. We have 47 gold, 37 silver, and 22 bronze! The most notable athlete was Jesse Owens who competed in the 1936 games. During the games in Berlin, Germany he brought home 4 gold medals. He dominated the 100 and 200 meters, Ocala Animal Control,  long jump, and 4 x 100 relay.  He is recognized as the greatest athlete in track and field history. The 2018 winter Olympics begin February 9th in PyeongChang, South Korea. We will have to wait until then to see if another Buckeye rises to challenge his legacy and add to the overall medal count.

Keep Your Nuts in Your Pocket!

Keep Your Nuts in Your Pocket!

Buckeye trees are mainly found in the western half of the state and more scattered in the east half. The nuts produces can be eaten, but NEVER raw. They are poisonous if eaten right off the tree. They can however be removed from the shell and roasted. The heat removes the tannins in them that can not only make you sick, but also don’t taste very well. Native Americans used to use them to make porridge. If eating them is not your thing (which I don’t blame you) folk lore says that if you keep a buckeye nut in your pocket it gives you good luck.

Effective Stress Relief Tips

Effective Stress Relief Tips

Everybody who has ever held a project has, sooner or later, felt the pressure of work-related pressure. However, when work pressure becomes chronic, it can have a negative effect both on your physical and emotional wellbeing.

Follow the following steps to Lower Your stress and stress:

First, stop worrying because a negative impact can happen at any stage and can cause anxiety and lower your immune systems. You become restless once you’re worried. This can ease your anxiety and improve your concentration. You may also listen to some good music or dancing. This can build your self-esteem and lift your mood since you’re able to express your emotions without communicating .

Second, it is possible to take a nap. It can effectively reduce your stress, improve your mood and increase your alertness. If you are unable to sleep massage your temples to relax the other organs in the body and soothing the headache.

Third, never let negative people influence you. There’s nothing wrong with supporting a negative person but ensure that you separate your individuality and emotions from it. Never take it in a personal level. If their negativity is targeted at you, learn how to use reverse psychology.

Fourth, don’t get stressed about what you ought to be doing, feel great about what you have accomplished up to now. The reflection process can help improve your favorable self-concept and alleviate your anxiety!Tea, Hot, Cup, Drink, Cup Of Tea

Fifth, enjoy simplicity. Simple things bring you joy too so learn to acknowledge and notice life’s little pleasures like laughing with your kids and spending time with your family members and friends.

Sixth, learn to forgive. Although, this can be easier said than done, recall, everybody makes mistakes. We learn from our mistakes and past experiences. Begrudging others because you do not get what you want will only hurt you so begin forgiving yourself and other people.

Seventh, say no occasionally. Being a ‘yes’ man is not easy especially when your only real objective is to please different people. Attempting to say ‘no’ sometimes does not mean that you’re selfish or rude. It will help simplify your life and give you the valuable time you need to relax with yourself.

Eight, spend less. Having lots of things just increases stress and will not resolve negative feelings so the next time you are about to part with your hard-earned money, have a step back and ask, “am I a smart spender?” , ‘have I split my needs out of my needs?”

The stress which you’re experiencing right now is just temporary. It will just pass.

It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine!

It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine!

The rivalry began with a short lived border war with Ohio in 1897 and of course Michigan won 34-0. The winning streak continued until 1912. To this day the wolverines lead Ohio with more national titles, rose bowl appearances, big ten titles, and all time program records. From 1897-2016 Michigan has won 58 games over Ohio. Ohio has won only 48 games and 6 ended in a tie. November 25, 2017 the rivalry continues when the Wolverines once again meet up with the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor. Ohio will try and continue their 5 game winning streak, but my money is on the Wolverines to end that! Either way there is no way I would miss this game!

How to Properly Deal with Anger

How to Properly Deal with Anger

Contrary to the popular belief, feeling mad is really a healthy and natural response to particular events.

These events can be something that is caused by your surrounding environment like missing your flight or bus. Or they may be caused by events that have happened to you at an earlier date or by events that are happening in your personal life. Emoji, Emoticon, Anger, Angry

Your body goes through a whole series of biochemical changes when you become mad.

Demonstrating anger at particular times is proper and has been ingrained deep within us as a survival instinct.

If you or your family are jeopardized, you react from anger. Who is not likely to defend themselves or loved ones when necessary?

However, problems happen in the manner that you react to certain situations.

Regrettably these extremes or responses are not always appropriate. You may find that you totally lose it with a co-worker rather than trying to just talk things out. When this occurs, you have to acknowledge that you have an anger management issue and you proactively take action to rectify it.

One way to do so is by employing positive thinking. You would like to learn how to look at what you can learn from the situation and how to handle it in a more constructive beneficial manner.

If a specific individual is making you angry, try to consider them in a more favorable light and actively figure out what you can learn from that annoying individual.

Do not just focus on what he or she does that makes your blood boil. Start looking for their strengths and values rather. Maybe they’re amazing with producing new software application for your business, they even have a bad attitude problem.

One method to improve how you think is to start using positive affirmations on a daily basis.

Quite often it is how you view a situation that is the cause of your anger, and not the actual situation .

You might just be feeling stressed out so your emotions will be the minute bring out your bad side.

So you always need to invest some personal time on your own. You want to spend some time to exercise, to meditate, to reflect and to think clearly (possibly during a relaxing warm bath after a long day.

Next time you respond in an angry manner, take two minutes and do some deep breathing exercises. Calm your mind until you think about the best way to reply.

In the event you reacted overly flirtatious, ask yourself if your response is justified or not. If no, then search for a different way on how you’re able to handle the problem in a more positive manner next time.

Do You Have an Armadillo?

Do You Have an Armadillo?

Armadillo, Shell, Mammal, WildlifeArmadillos are famous for their tough outer shell and quite sharp claws. They are quite strong diggers and prefer places that are sandy or near water since they may dig more readily there. Armadillos are very determined and will make their way through most materials. They rely mostly on their ability to listen to and smell when hunting for grubs and worms. This is the reason they’re associated with pockets all around the exterior of peoples’ homes.

As an immediate effect of the armadillos burrowing and rooting while consuming, they are called pests to folks who like to garden or keep a yard. They will dig small holes across the yard searching for grubs and worms. Many times they’re mistaken for moles or voles. Their burrows around the perimeter of buildings are easily recognizable and may bring about a significant amount of harm to the house. They could dig a hole as deep as 10-20 feet under a structure resulting in damaged or cracked foundations, not to mention the destruction caused by any underground wires or pipes.

Although they’re not a significant risk for transmitting pathogens or diseases, their reduced body temperatures make them susceptible to a host of diseases. They are used in lab studies for leprosy research. Again, the low body temperature makes them more vulnerable to the disease. This is not a concern unless their beef is consumed uncooked or handled without appropriate hand-washing methods. This is typically not a problem for most people.

Trapping and removing armadillos from your premises is the sole solution to the issues they produce. Unlike other creatures, armadillos don’t respond to bait, which makes it a little more challenging to coax into a snare. With a little patience and enough experience, they can be properly removed. There are lots of deterrents on the market designed to rid of your armadillo problems. Most prove to be unsuccessful, like the very common usage of moth balls. Moth balls are not effective at deterring armadillos although they’re exceptional human deterrents. The first step in discouraging armadillos from your yard should be to rid the area of their main attractant and food source: grubs and bugs. This can be achieved by utilizing pesticides or calling your regional pest professional. Since they mostly find their way around by odor, houses that have dogs seem to be influenced by armadillos.
