Now I Can Loose It!

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

It's so typical for me; shortly after the crisis passes, I become a basket case! So, despite the fact that I'd used all of my best stress-relieving skills (talk to friends and family, go for walks, indulge in comfort food, take some time each day to pray), now that Phil's immediate health crisis is over, I've been crying, or on the verge of tears all day. Yikes! I've missed a week of work, and I'm way behind. I'll never get caught up if I can't focus better than I did today!

Deep breath. Get what is necessary done this afternoon, prioritize tomorrow, go for a walk and chop wood when I get home (stress relief), get a good night's sleep, and try again tomorrow.

    Not surprising to have a delayed reaction, what a lot of stress you have been coping with, and more to come. Putting yourself first is the way to go, girl.

  Hey Girl, you are doing great. You need to let yourself feel those "after shock" emotions. You aren't a basket case, Let those damn tears fall. It's your bodies way of cleansing itself and helps with emotional healing. You've been through a lot! emoticon

    I was bewildered by your easy-going attitude during what seemed like a crisis to me. I am not surprised at all that you are suffering post-traumatic stress. I hope you can find some healthy ways to cope with it because it's real. Upon us all a little rain must fall.

    Yes, I know just how that goes! A delayed reaction to a very emotional and stressful time. You have a good plan for the day! emoticon emoticon

    Yikes, now that everything finally came to pass, the stress finally released itself.
Sounds like a great plan to get everything back on track.
You can do it!
