The last 6 weeks has probably been the worst ever. My husband lost his job, we found out my mother in law has cancer, then we lost our car in a fiery crash due to someones stupidity. I am feeling so overwhelmed some days all I want to do is crawl in bed and sleep the days away, but I can't. I have to stay strong like always. I get sick of always being the strong one. It's been this way my entire life and I'm not sure how much more I can take. I am very close to my breaking point. On top of all this other crap I'm dealing with, I am still helping my mom take care of my nephew(6) and niece(4) because my little sister is an immature, selfish person. It's been almost a year now that my mom has had her kids. Even though I'm stressed to the max and absolutely exhausted, I still go to my moms twice a day to help with the kids and run her errands. My mom is handicap due to getting hit by a train in 1990 so I do what I can for her and the kids, but I'm wearing thin. I'm sorry this is so depressing, I just needed to get some stuff off my chest and I don't really have anyone to listen. Thanks for reading this if you got this far.
I'm so sorry you have been through a lot recently. Try to keep your chin up. You are strong and even though you may not feel like it you will get through all this. Stay positive! We are here for you any time.
I'm sorry Hun... Yeah I've felt that way before. Maybe if you let something go just a little bit it might really help you. It's better to let some things slide than totally burn yourself out. Your sweet girl needs you. Maybe take a break from the other stuff and just focus on yourself and her for a bit. Everybody needs a break, even the strong people.
well they say things happen in three's so you should be home free!! i know its tough always being the rock but someones gotta do it and its only makeing you stronger. i totally feel for you, but G-d doesnt give us anything we cant handle so just try to stay positive and feel good knowing your are helping others. your obviously a strong good hearted person. sometimes we just have to pat ourselves on the back and take five for yourself when you can and keep on truckin! Vent to us anytime thats what we are here for, to support each other.((HUGS))
Ugh girl, anytime you need to talk message me!! Even if it's just to vent, even if it doesn't make sense. I'm a good listener and have been through a lot of crap in my life too.
Keep your head up, you will make it through.
Thanks girls! Sometimes it's easier to let things out to people you don't see or talk to on a regular basis. I feel a little better just getting some things off my chest. All of you ladies have been so wonderful and I truly thank you for being there for me even though we don't "know" each other on a personal level.
