And the Hits just keep on coming

Friday, March 29, 2013

Ok, there is no easy way to lead into this. My daughter totaled her car on the way back to college on Monday. She is physically fine but emotionally trashed. She is very jumpy and is having a hard time eating and sleeping.
She hit black ice on the parkway and slammed into the end of the metal guard rail spun around and landed on the opposite side of the parkway facing the traffic. Thank go no on else was involve.
I took her back to school on Tuesday. She was stubborn and wishes now she had listen to me when I told her she needs to get rest and I will take her back on Wendsday. She only make it to 1 of her classes on Wendsday.
Then yesterday she was in class and there was a fire down the hall they evacuated the building.
How am I? Well stressed. My husband is making me nuts, he doesn't deal well with all this and he expect me to be able to deal with him, the kids and the situation all at the same time. It is even becoming to much for me rite now.
So Tuesday I headed out to the gym just to get away from the 2 of them. He was yelling at me contently and she was so jumpy every time you walked too close she would cringe and cry. So I did get in some miles and minutes but not as much as I would normally or as much as I wanted to.
The other thing is I am still coughing. Now I think it is more about allergies and house hold contaminants than being sick. Between the smell of the paint and the other dust from emptying the basement and cleaning out the crawlspace I am pretty sure that is what is going on right now. I feel fine other than to keep coughing.
Until next time.

    So sorry to hear it. When I was in college I also got into an accident (fortunately I was okay). It was difficult - and I was jumpy - but over time things did settle down again. I am still careful - I was hit from behind so I still often make sure to have enough distance between me and the person in front of me - and watch the cars behind me as well - but I am okay. Just give her time and realize that as mothers we cannot always heal all the pain - just be there for them when they need us.

    The best cure for stress - for sure - is to exercise. I use it as my time to get away from it all - it is my only "me" time right now. This way - when you get back into that environment - it can be a little easier to deal with.

    If you get bothered by allergies - I have always suffered from them - dust can be a huge culprit. I don't know if you have ever heard of it - but I really love to use a nasal rinse. I am even finding out now - if I don't have time - just to use a nasal spray (salt only) to really help a lot. I used to get sick every month or so with a sinus infection. Since doing nasal rinses - I haven't had one in at least 6 years.

    Hope things get better for you soon. Sometimes it can be hard to be strong for everyone. Keep your chin up - and know that we here for you.

    For the cough or what not, give Emergen-C a try. It is wonderful for feeling a little under the weather, and helps you get those vitamins you need to stay healthy! I am sorry to hear about your situation and it does sound stressful. I am in college, and have a husband and 2 children of my own so I feel like I can relate on some levels are far as husbands and being hard to deal with. As I suggest to everyone, check out It may help motivate you, inspire you, or give you a good giggle when you need it. Best of wishes for the future.
