Health Update

I am really happy to share with you all that I love my new doctor! Last week I went to see a new doctor because my old one was not listening to me and my blood sugar was still so crazy and my doctor did not want to change anything. She asked no questions and really didn’t seem to care. Now I have a great doctor and I’m finding that I have a bit more energy and am able to concentrate much better at work and home.

I’m happy about this because my grandmother had diabetes and I know how hard it can be to deal with as you get older. I want to get it in control so that I don’t have issues later on. I couldn’t even exercise because my sugar was so high. I hope to get something in today and tomorrow and Saturday I’m helping my sister move so I’ll get a workout in there.

I’m ready to make some good changes in my health and one way I am doing that is to get better control of my anxiety and depression. I’m now on meds for both and I’m going to be setting up an appointment to see a psychiatrist to help me deal with all of this better. I know I can do it once I get some help and I know that both problems are effecting my life. I’m done dealing with it and I want to be able to have a normal life, well as normal as I can.

So that’s my update for now. How are you all doing today?

Life Changes and a New Path

Tomorrow I go to see a new doctor. I am excited as I am not very happy with my old one. She did not listen to me, she just seemed to care more about keeping me on a bunch of medications, who cared if they worked or not. Really I’m so tired of feeling like crap. I am really hoping that this new one will help me get over this fog I have been in for so long.

I’m diabetic and right now my blog sugar is around 320. It’s this way every morning, sometimes a bit lower, sometimes a bit higher, but it’s still always an issue. I’m actually very happy that I’m even typing right now. I can barely see anything and all I want to do is take a nap, but then I lay down and I’m not that tired. I just can’t function.

I’m also ready to get out of this depression that has had a hold of me for most of my life. I’m the happy person who you would never know thinks about killing herself a few times a day almost every day. I’ve been waiting for this for over a month, but yes recent events have solidified that I need to speak with someone. It just seems that every time I meet a new doctor I just can’t talk about it. This time I’m going to.

I’m also looking at going back to school. Because of my anxiety I don’t know what I can do, but I’m thinking an administration degree, yes it’s stressful, but I can handle that kind of stress. . I want to get out of the low paying retail jobs as I know that is a huge part of my depression and anxiety problem, though both of these I have dealt with my whole life. I just need to see if I can get help to pay for it. It would be a second bachelors degree, but because of the recession and my anxiety I’m having trouble getting an interior design job and I can’t even think of starting my own business because I don’t make enough to even cover my monthly bills, and I live with my mom.

If anyone has some tips for the school thing I would love to hear them.

Get $5 From Swagbucks just for Signing Up!

card220

Disclosure: I receive a swagbucks bonus if you sign up with my link.

If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet, now is the time to do it. Among the many ways to get gift cards by earning Swag Bucks, you can also earn Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend shopping online via Swagbucks Shop & Earn — which comes in especially handy during this back to school time when you’re buying supplies and clothes for the new year. Shopping online via Swagbucks gives you access to all the major online retailers and big box stores, including Target, Walmart, Staples, Amazon, and more (stores vary for members in Canada & UK)!

The good news doesn’t stop there because here’s an even bigger reason to earn Swag Bucks while shopping online: a bonus 500 SB (a $5 value in addition to your earnings)! Here’s how to get your $5 bonus: If you sign up for Swagbucks through my link here anytime between August 6th – September 6th, and make a purchase of $25 or more via Swagbucks Shop & Earn, you will get a 500 SB Bonus! That’s enough for a $5 gift card, in addition to all the Swag Bucks you earn from your online shopping purchase.

Please note that you bonus will be credited only after your Shop & Earn Swag Bucks are credited, which can be up to 35 days after the date of purchase. Also please note that this special bonus is only available for new SB members who sign up through my link.

To get started, all you have to do is sign up through me here, and start shopping with Swagbucks Shop & Earn. Not only will your summer or back to school shopping be hassle-free (think: no long lines at checkout, no tired feet from shuffling from store to store, the perks go on & on), but you’ll also earn SB for every dollar PLUS a $5 bonus to go towards gift cards. For official rules, see below:

Receive 500 Swag Bucks (approximate retail value $5 USD) (“Credit”) when you sign up
for a Swagbucks.com account via an applicable referral link and make a purchase
of $25 USD or more through the Swagbucks.com Shop & Earn webpage between 12:01
AM PST on August 6, 2014 and 11:59 PM PST on September 6, 2014 (a “Qualifying

$150 Paypal & a Free Self Help Book Giveaway

I am a huge fan of reading and improving yourself. This is a book that is on my reading list, no I have not read it yet, but I plan on it as it looks like it’s a bit different from other self help books and I’ll be honest some are just boring, this one looks anything but!

Michael Samuels has a brand new book out and he wants you to come to experience what he has through the universal laws of attraction. This book works with the laws in a fun but no nonsense way. Michael Samuels gives you practical answers but doesn’t make it boring.


Hot off the heels of his international best seller "Just Ask the Universe" and his critically acclaimed follow up "The Universe-ity", Michael Samuels returns with a fun and witty practical manual called "Keep Calm and Ask On: A No-Nonsense Guide to Fulfilling Your Dreams." With a few easy and entertaining steps, Samuels will inspire you that living the life of your dreams is not all that hard. It’s actually easier than you think. He will show you how to further develop your “I want” list to make your goals become a reality. He will also show how music and laughter are the two keys to unlocking a greater life. Samuels has studied the teachings of the greats just to pass the word around in a simple and no-frills manner. This is not some drawn-out, monotonous Law of Attraction book that only teaches you a small piece of the subconscious puzzle. The answers are here and Samuels did the research to give you the total picture with no hype or tricks. If you want something, the universe will deliver!

To celebrate the release of this new book, Michael Samuels is offering to one reader a chance at $150 Paypal and a copy of his book, Keep Calm and Ask On. Enter in the Rafflecopter below and remember…keep calm and ask on!

Where to find Michael Samuels:

Facebook
Amazon

Disclosure: Hollybee Tells was asked to promote this giveaway on behalf of Michael Samuels and was not compensated in anyway for this giveaway. This giveaway has been arranged by Away We Go Media who along with Michael Samuels is responsible for prize shipment.

The giveaway will run from August 2, 12 AM MST-August 17,  12 AM MST
The giveaway is open internationally but if winner is outside of the US then only a Kindle copy of the book will be given. Winner must have an active Paypal account and will only be paid in US dollars.
