  • I shop.. alot! and I can't just get one or two things. If I shop, I do the whole package. Nails, Hair, clothes, bra, panties, make up.. LOl.. the whole deal.. and after doing that, i'm good for awhile, but it's amazing how much better you feel when you treat yourself once in awhile!! :)

  • It sounds like you have all the material thing now however you are missing the strength from with in you. Try to stop looking outside for validation that you are ok.  Look with in yourself to feel that you are ok.  Happiness comes from within.

  • High heels always make me feel better. There's just something feminine about them, and they make your legs look good. But, from how you sound, I think you just need a change of attitude about your appearance. Start telling yourself positive things instead of negative things. Don't think negatively either. It really works. Be confident around your DH, and don't complain about your appearance to him, or act needy for his acceptance of you. I like buying lingerie, make-up, matching panty and bra sets, shoes, clothes, and getting my hair cut, highlighted or something new when I feel the need to treat myself.

  • Take an exercise class. It will tone you up and give you more energy. If you don't want to spend the money, do an exercise program on TV or get a DVD from the library. Or walk a couple miles every day. Yoga is great for relaxing and for feeling better about and more patient with yourself.

  • I'm seeing my obgyn on tuesday because of how I have been feeling.... I feel like I'm in the dark and I have tunnel vision... It's so hard to explain. All the shopping in the world doesn't help. We are doing very well financially and our kids are healthy and life is good but I still feel horrible inside... So hopefully my Dr will be able to help me. I'm thinking it's PMDD. Sorry for venting...

  • I suggest taking a multivitamin. I know it gives me more energy. Have you ever listed all of your fantastic qualities? Or maybe get your husband to! Do it and post it somewhere! Try not to think of what you don't have, but think of what you do have! Take a walk a couple of times a week and try to notice all the beauty that is going on right now and relish in the fact that you can just walk around and that you have your health to be able to do it! I don't know, maybe these are cheesy, but sometimes you need something to boost your self esteem and material things just won't do that all the time!

  • Run a warm bath with bubbles and light a candle and soak and pamper yourself. Makes you feel like a million bucks!
