I posted this under another topic, but I really need more feedback, I'm starting to get anxiety attacks again and I just need reassurance that what I did was a good thing . Well, my holiday experience includes finally kicking my Mother out of my house and feeling totally awful for it. When she moved in 6 months ago, she couldn't afford to stay in their home any longer. After my Dad died nearly 3 years ago, she stopped drinking. I think she was afraid because she didn't have anyone to take care of her anymore. She didn't drink for nearly 2 years(thats how long it took us to short sell her house), finally we decided that if she didn't drink, she could move in with me. Big mistake. She must have felt comfortable and safe again, because she started drinking heavily. I told her after her first binge, NO MORE, if she drank one more time she was out. It totally messed my mind up. I'd spent years in counseling and thought I was so far past all of these feelings I was having, but they all came back. She continued to drink, but I couldn't open my mouth, it was like I lost my voice of reason. I was just mortified. Well, finally 3 days before Christmas, she decided to down an entire bottle of Whiskey, I called my sister and told her to come over. My sister and mother have a connection to each other, like my Dad and I had before he died. My sister came over and I told her she couldn't return, my mother was to drunk to understand. She had to stay with my sister until she could find a place to live. Originally, she was going to live with my Sister, that was our agreement, but my Mom doesn't care for my sisters housekeeping and so I said fine. My sister was happy, I think they are so much alike sometimes they drive each other nuts. Anyway, my sister was mad I "ruined" her Christmas, she said she had so much to do, she didn't have time for this. My husband said tough luck. He didn't like what this was doing to me mentally, she had to go. So, she left. She's found an apt. near my sister, it looks like she can move in within a week or so. So.......why do I feel so bad? I feel like everyone thinks I'm the bad one for making her leave. All I feel is guilt and anxiety. I could use some positive words of encouragement. I'm thinking I need to go back to the therapist for a few visits and maybe anxiety meds again. I do have severe anxiety issues that I usually can keep under control unless a major issue comes along. I'm counting this as a major issue. Right? thanks.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
