Hi all.  Hope you are feeling well today.  I am feeling overwhelmed and anxious today.  And I feel like a migraine is coming; of course, it could be from my emotions.  We are having a yard sale this Saturday but we have all of the work done and ready to go.  Then I need to go out to the riding ranch where I volunteer to pick up the time sheets and visit.  They haven't seen my baby and me for a few months now because I have been sick one way or the other with this pregnancy.  I just feel overwhelmed today and tired.  I guess I am making myself stressed.  I just want to cry.  I hate feeling this way.  I was thinking that I would lay down with my baby and take a nap this morning with her during her nap time.  I don't want to take an Ativan but I feel like I am coming apart at the seams.  Oh well...
 
Have a good day all.  Thanks for listening.

Hi Missflip,

Right now you need to do what you need to do to get through this. If not going to the ranch today and visiting with people is stressing you out and making you feel anxious then don't go. You said yourself that you would rather take a morning nap with your daughter. I think that is what you should do if that is going to make you feel better. Remember you are number #1 and you have to start to take control of what you can control. You know what you need to do right now.

I know you had a busy and stressful time last week with visiting your mother and sister and I've read that you have been busy getting things ready for the yard sale. Maybe you need to listen to yourself more. It sounds like your body is telling you exactly what you need.

When was your last pdoc appt.? Do you see a therapist that could help you sort out your feelings along the way?

I hope you feel better today! (((Hugs)))

My next pdoc appt is on Monday. I took a nap with my baby but now I am all weepy! I just want to cry, cry, cry. My husband came home for lunch and I cried on his shoulder the whole time he was here. He is so supportive! I broke down and took an Ativan a few minutes ago. I have to pull it together so I can take care of my daughter. I just feel so helpless right now.

I can only offer support and assure you that it's okay to cry your heart out. Your daughter will be fine. Cry if you have to. let it loose. You'll feel better afterwards. I'm so sorry that anything out of the routine of the absolute normal feels like too much right now. I know that feeling very well, and have shed many tears about having to visit friends and family, go to the store, get out of bed, when I just didn't want to. It's good to keep trying, of course, but you take care of yourself first, and give yourself a break. You're in a particularly delicate position and deserve a lot of slack.
