Depression and Works For Me Wednesday!





I am so depressed right now! I have cried so hard I just can’t cry anymore! My husband and I went bake to the sleep specialist yesterday to get the results of his sleep study and talk about getting on a machine! He stopped breathing 88 times in a hour. He stopped over 600 times the whole time he was there. The doctor said he has never seen anyone that stopped that many times!  As most of you know from my one post before my husband is very large and obese and the doctor told us that if something wasn’t done soon he wouldn’t make it until next year.  They couldn’t set him up with a breathing machine because they have to send it to a medical supply place and it might take two weeks before they hear anything because of insurance.   I am so upset and so scared! I don’t know what to do and every time I think about what that doctor said, I just cry! I knew he had gained a lot of weight but I didn’t realize how bad the breathing problem is. The doctor said that we would work on the weight after we get him on a machine, but what irritates me it is going to take 2 wks to do that. I think I am going to be paranoid about every time he goes to sleep. I am going to ask for a favor to pray for my husband and I. Pray that we can get him on a machine soon and hurry up and get his weight down. I know only God knows when we will die but the thought of that is more than I can stand! I am sorry to be so depressing, but I just really am scared! I want to ask another favor, if you would share your favorite very low fat or vegetarian recipes I would appreciate it.


Now for my Works For Me Wednesday!

Don’t be afraid to take hand me downs from others. My daughters teacher has 2 daughters that are older than she and she is constantly sending her home with bags of clothing. They usually are named brand and very cute!  It is an awesome way to  dress her in name brands without spending a dime!

Also if  you are wanting to learn anything about making cakes and decorating cakes, I want to spotlight ! She has so many tutorials that you can make your own! This is one awesome website!

  1. omgosh, that is so scary! I'll be thinking good thoughts for you and your husband.

    My father had a similar sleep study and his doctor couldn't believe how many times he stopped breathing as well! I also think my husband should take one since I think he suffers from sleep apnea, but he won't listen to me. Neither my husband or my father are overweight so I'm not sure what causes their sleep problems.
