Emotional Weeks...

So confused....

I talked to my best friend last night... I kept telling her I don't understand why I feel depressed. It was at that very moment everything that has been bugging me came to the surface.

I am a really tough cookie for actually being able to cope with everything that is there...

1. My Grandmother is dying. She had another stroke yesterday. She is in the hospital. I was just told this morning that she will not becoming home. She is going to a nursing home. I was so hoping she will be able to have one more Christmas. For her to see her second grandchild. I was keeping a positive outlook that I might not have a few weeks I might just have a few days.

2. My cousin, Thomas, has been gone for a month. I cannot stop crying. I only do that at night. I see the posting for his mother. It just breaks my heart.

3. One month after thomas' passing is National AIDS Awareness Day... Which reminds me of my very good friend who passed last December. I wish he was still around.

The less depressing but still important stress...

4. I have been sick for the last week with a soared stomach.

5. Kaleb has been sick with a viral/ear infection.

6. I have a boyfriend that I don't know if it is just me but seems distant.

7. I have ex boyfriend that is trying really hard to get my attention.

8. I have a good friend trying to get my attention as well.

9. I don't understand where all these men are coming from. That confuses me to know end.

10. I wish my best friend was here. The only friend I have made in the last year and half of being down here is moving back to Arizona.

    I think it's very good for you to figure out why you're so stressed. You must be very strong to be handling all of this at once. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandmother.

    The question is, can anything be done to lighten up your stress load? Like Chrimsonfyre posted, maybe take a moment to focus on the positives. Maybe make a list of all of the things that bring you joy? Or, maybe just take some time for you. Do you have a favorite escape like a bath or a new book? The only other thing that I can think of is turn on your favorite tunes (something with a good beat) and just dance around the house.

    I am sorry that you are feeling blue. Have you tried going for a walk to clear your mind and see if the endorphins help? Sorry to hear about your grandmother and friend and cousin, etc. Sounds like a lot of things going on right now.
    Would it help to focus on something good to see if it helps those feelings of sorrow?
