Hospital Food Challenge Days = Stress+Exhaustion… Found Yoga Helps!

Aars and I both find the hospital food challenge days exhausting! Today is peanuts…

It takes us 2 hours to get to the hospital, and 2 hours to get back. The appointment takes around 3 hours. Aars goes to a youth club when we get home, which is wonderful. It normalises the day as he gets to hang out with his friends or hare about to let off steam and nervous energy.

I have such a roller-coaster of emotions, but underlying everything is a high level of stress and tension. I have to present a cool, calm exterior for Aaron, but on the inside I am panicking or dreading, worrying or relieved, in wonder or shock, amazement… wrung out!

I have looked for local yoga classes, massages… on a friday eve when Aars is at his youth club – but everyone has shut up shop, enjoying their weekend – which is fair enough!

I have finally found a solution! Yoga on the internet!! A free 1 hour class. There are two I really like:

The moderate class with Coby Kozlowski makes me sweat and releases all the tension I gather over the day in my shoulders, neck and back. It returns my hunched shoulders to their proper position, slows my mind down, distracts me as I try to follow the class. The result; my anxiety levels plummet, the stress that has tightened round my body releases it and my mind/emotions back to a point of calm and peace.

Restorative with Carolyn Lundeen – helps me relax and sleep!

Try them out! You need a rug/yoga mat for the first one. I try to do this one at least once a week! I find it genuinely helpful for maintaining a level of peace and calm as I support Aaron on his journey away from anaphylaxis.

You need a load of blankets, cushions and a belt for the second. If you are helped by the classes you can give a donation should you desire via their website. (I have no affiliation with them whatsoever!)

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
