Still struggling but forcing myself to exercise

Lizze and I have a few hours to ourselves this morning and that almost never happens. Gavin spent the night at his grandparents and the boys are at school.

What I want more than anything is to crawl back into bed and sleep off the nausea but that’s not in the agenda. Lizze and I are going to go walking shortly. I want to go. I need to go but I feel like shit still. At the same time, I know that I’ll feel better as I walk and that’s why I’m forcing myself to go.

I’m losing weight and getting back into reaching my fitness goals.

It’s unfortunate that I’m having such a difficult time withdrawaling from Paxil but the more active I am, the better I feel. So, with that in mind, here’s what our plans are.

Lizze has been heavily invested in genealogy and has been digging deep into our families past. Along the way, she came across people looking to obtain photographs of their loved ones or ancestors headstone. There’s a surprising number of these requests that involve cemeteries in our area. It turns out there’s a dedicated website where people can post requests and if you live in the area, you can fulfill that request by snapping an image of their family members headstone.

I’m not sure entirely why someone would want to have that but perhaps it’s a way of feeling closer to their family tree. It might be part of their journey into their own families past as well. Either way, we need the exercise and figured we’d help some of these people out.

That’s our plan for this morning. We’re going to honor a few requests and help these people connect with their past.

I honestly feel a little weird about this but it’s a totally legit thing from what I’ve found. If it helps someone on the other side of the country or globe for that matter, connect with their past, I guess it sorta feels like the right thing to do.

I’ve heard of this hobby already. I have a family member who does it. She’s even posted pics occasionally on Facebook.
