Good news today and a phone call from Karen R

so i went to see my nutritionist this morning. and i got good news! i lost 2 pounds this week! yay me! so happy to be losing again since i gained last week! we talked about my goals and set new goals for next week. mostly the goals are just keeping a check on my mood, energy levels, water intake and whether i am constipated or not. i’m so happy though because i feel i am doing really well weight wise, i’ve now lost a total of 10 pounds since the start of may. exercising is going well. i do 10 to 15 mins on the treadmill 5 days a week mostly. i try to go walking outside when i can. this weekend mom and me are going with my sister and her kids to a local wildlife park, which has lots of nature trails so i will get a good bit of walking in then. but yeah overall i am pleased with how it went today. the rest of my day went well also. my pa kristen was with me until 1 PM, she did housework and helped me cook breakfast. She made me a gorgeous omlete for breakfast with cheese and bacon in it which I had with toast. Then this afternoon I got a surprise, dr. Barrys social worker karen rang me. She was ringing to thank me for the card i gave her, and while we were on the phone we talked a little about her leaving. She said it could be another 8 weeks before she leaves because there is a lot of paperwork that she has to fill out for the new job etc. And there still isnt anyone to replace her, the person replacing her will be picked from a panel. She said they may or may not have worked with mental illness before, it really just depends. She told me that she is going to work with the elderly, something she’s never done before. I was joking with her and i playfully said why do you have to get a promotion? To which she replied I know, I’m so crap I dont deserve it. That couldnt be further from the truth. This new place she’s going to will be so lucky to have her work there. She really is an amazing person and I’d say no matter where she works she’ll be amazing at her job. She said everyone was admiring her card I made her. I was happy to hear that. I asked her if she’d come in to my dr. Barry session next week so I can get a chance to say goodbye, she said of course she would. I said I hope your going to let me give you a hug, and she said that yes she would. I’ll probably cry when I am saying goodbye to her. I’ll be a sobbing mess on her shoulder with dr. Barry looking on. I felt really special that she took the time to ring me today. I felt seen and known and important. It felt really good.

    1. Likewise I really care about her too. I’m so glad she called me to. It meant so much to me, the fact that she took the time to pick up the phone and ring me and talk to me. She is a gem 😃💟


  1. Oh, it’s a really good news. 🙂 Hope that it’ll continue and you’ll lose more gradually. I’m sure you’ll achieve your goals. And I wish you a good time in the park. It’s so nice that Karen rang you and you could talk for a while. Really hope someone good will replace her.
