4 Ways Not Yelling Helped me Manage my Shoulder Injury (For Real.)

Hi everyone! So I hurt my shoulder pretty bad and haven’t been able to write much for that reason (and a few other big ones. Check out my last post. I had to write that and my shoulder was fairly pissed with me afterwards.) Anyway, I have a lot on my mind and a lot of things I want to share so I decided to get creative, to find a new way. Here it is: my first video blog! It isn’t professional or edited or planned, just me being me. Enjoy!

  1. Today marks my first week without yelling. Woohoo! It took me a loooong time to get here. I started following your blog at the end of last year and had many re-dos before I could celebrate this day. I’ve been a single mom of 3 boys for the past 3 years and my oldest is 6 yrs old. You have inspired me & challenged me greatly. I am feeling motivated to reach my next goal of 1 month without yelling. I’ve worked hard to understand my triggers and continue to work hard to manage them. I keep discovering new ways to keep from yelling. A few of my personal favorites are roaring or growling when I want to yell, and squeezing my boys as tight as I can when I want to yell. Both usually lead to a great deal of laughs and “I love yous”. Thank you for being a blessing in my life…you have been pivotal in transforming me & thus my famy.

  2. Love it! I’ve been trying to not yell since April, and it wasn’t going well. I kept a journal until last week, and made it at long as 8 days once (6 another), so I’m having a tough time with it. But I think the count was stressing me out, so I’m trying to count something else, just not sure what to count. But I am more aware of myself in situations where I want to yell, and that feels good. I haven’t had a bad yell in a long time, but I still don’t like the snaps. I give into them more than I want to, but I’m still trying. Thank you for the inspiration, and for letting me know that I’m not alone. I felt very alone before I found this blog.

  3. Thank you. You always seem to post when I need it most. You have helped me in so many ways. I needed perspective big time and you definitely gave it to me. My stomach hurts for you just thinking about your sons seizures. Stress is a big trigger for me. I am very much like you and will NOT ASK FOR HELP! Your video was great, your hat was adorable and thank you for taking the time out of your life to help others. I’m sure you don’t always feel like doing so. But I am thankful you do. I don’t know you personally but I have no doubt that you will get through this tough time and continue to inspire people in the process, not to mention giving your sons a fantastic role model! Simply amazing.
