    Aye yi yi, normally Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year but this year with all my illnesses it's really been a struggle and SUPER stressful!!! I've never waited this long to go shopping. I wish there was another week left so I could relax a bit and enjoy it. I guess now I know why everyone else always says Christmas is so stressful - it's always been more fun than stressful for me but now I think I get it. We will be really busy running around Xmas Eve and Xmas day too - I'm still looking forward to it though in my own stressed out way I guess

      Don't worry things will work out...they always do. Plus aren't you getting a secret present tomorrow?

      Jamie that sucks about you being sick. Do you feel like you're getting better? I remember being sick over the holidays a few years ago and it just wasn't the same. Wishing you a merry christmas sweetie. Get better and relax.

        I'm stressed, mostly because this is the first year I'm broke (because of not working due to the pregnancy). I ended up putting all of my Christmas shopping on credit cards which bums me out because I had just gotten the balances all down to the under $100 range. Boo.

        But don't worry, it'll be over soon enough. Your health is the most important thing anyway.

          You can always just get giftcards if you've run out of time. HEB has a selection from all over. You can get restaurant cards, department store cards, itunes cards, etc. all in one place.

            I keep getting sick over and over with different things but I think I finally found the underlying cause - overactive adrenal glands which causes my body to produce excessive amounts of cortisol which can break down your immune system. Any time I get stressed my glands swell up and I just feel yucky. However I've found an excellent and very informative book on the subject (it's called Adrenal Fatigue). I'm hoping (when we get the money) to go see someone who specializes in it. There are actually very few doctors who are aware of the condition so it will take some research but it is very refreshing to finally have an inkling of what is going on with my body! Supposedly most people have the disorder to some small degree at some point in their lives but mine is at the point where it is severe which is why I keep getting sick. That and I think there's still something wrong from the wisdom tooth surgery - that's when all of this mess begun.

            Thanks for the well wishes - Merry Christmas!!! :)

            I totally hear you about the being broke thing - this is the first year I've been in that position too and it definitely is stressful. It's hard to look past it but it is good to put things into perspective. Thanks :)
