Blew it!!!!

Monday, July 19, 2010

I am feeling soooo stressed and overate way tooooo much today. I started out great and blew it by lunch time. I am premenopausal, I have a 17 yr old, who thinks she can talk to me anyway she feels like and disrespects me, my mom is getting ready for surgery after 6 rounds of chemo, and my mother in law is 89 and has the beginning of Alzheimer's. My husband takes care of her. But, it still takes a toll. I am struggling and feeling like a failure because I can't seem to do this. I feel like I am going crazy!!! I am so emotional and crying at just about anything. Someone, please give me some encouragement/advice...anythin
Blessings to you all!!!

Thanks! Celia

    Hey Celia,

    I know I did the whole perimenopausal thing and thought I was going to LOOSE MY MIND FOR SURE!!!! There is even a book titled, Screaming To Be Heard about the whole process. I hope you have a great gynocologist because there are some bioidentical hormones etc you can use. I ended up having a hysterectomy which went very south. At least they can only do that surgery once.

    You ARE overloaded. You really are. Your assessment of the situation is dead on. Hope you can take a little "Me" time even if it is just fifteen minutes here or there and close your eyes and rest and pray and relax.

    The daughter will grow up and appreciate you.

    You WILL survive.

    Celia, right now you are on a roller coaster and no end in sight but I promise you that the end will come. Check with your dr about harmone replacements or herbal supplements. I did the herbal way and tried 3 kinds before I found what worked for me. When you get that under control, the rest is a piece of cake. Taking care of parents and in-laws is wicked too but just remember, you have to come first to be able to help them. I helped my mil and then my mother but not all at the same time. Don't beat yourself up when you are human (which we all are). (((HUGS))) Linda Kay

    Mother, daughter relationships... sigh. Everyday I thank goodness for my two sons. emoticon
    Hopefully this too shall pass. Your daughter is in a hormonal stage as well, PLUS her frontal lobe isn't fully developed. What would happen if you treated her like she treats you? I know when my sons went through the yippy stage around 14 - 16 I just gave it back to them. They weren't long changing their tune!
    Good luck!!

    Remember that the only person you need to take care of sometimes is yourself. Walk away, think, and if you want to go back to the situation you can and deal with it in a way you know you won't regret later. There are just some things you can't control so blow them off and do what is right for you!! Only from there you can start taking care of others and putting some situations right. I don't know you but you will be in my prayers. God never sends you anything you can't handle with his quiet strength and love.

    Wow, it does sound like you have a lot on your plate. Being premenopausal I encourage you to get in to see your doctor. Being at the beginning of menopause myself, I can well relate to all the up and down emotions of these previous years. It's better now, though, even if I do have new symptoms to contend with. My moods are much more stable. So take time for yourself and allow a little pampering. This, too, shall pass.

    Life happens, but that doesn't make you a failure. You're still standing. So you ate some stuff today. Right now is a fresh new moment. When I have had overwhelming problems like you have, I've sought help from my doctor. If you want more personal info, just sparkmail me. Bless you.
