I've been feeling really angry for the last 2 days. I got into it with my spouse and in-laws over my sons birthday. I have had feelings of extreme anxiety and 2 panic attacks. Plus, my house was struck by lightening last night and fried my garage door device, satellite, 2 receivers, 1 Tv, DVD player and jacked up some other major electrical systems.

Needless to say I didn't sleep last night. I was less than plesant at work today. I want to quit my job due to all the stress. I've been trying to get him to understand how much stress I feel and how I really feel this job is harming my physically. So far, he's not cool w/me quiting. I need some advice on how not to let the anger throw me into a panic attack.

 

Thanks

P-Fit,

I am sorry you are having a tough go of it right now, it's okay to be angry, much better than to bottle it up. I have to say, and this is just me that anger has never caused me an attack. Wierd! But that's just me. I find I am more likely to have an attack if I don't say what I need to say. I guess the best thing we can try and do is achieve some balance. Get the anger out on paper (I love journalling it all out) so that you won't have it running through your head all night and causing insomnia.

If you really want your spouse to know how stressed you are then maybe you could put him in line for the next bolt of lightening(joking!!!)...it is so hard for people without A/P to understand. But that doesn't make it easier for us. If you feel that quitting your job will help you, then it is no-ones decision but your own. Do what you need to stay sane. Hang in there. Let us know what you decide.

P-Fit... Honey, what a nightmare... your house struck by lightning! Geez as if you didn't have enough on your plate. I would be nervous too afterwards and understandably grumpy at work the next day.
As far as your job is concerned , I'm sorry it is causing you so much anxiety. Is there any way you can reach a compromise with your hubby.... maybe look for something part-time... that would still help pay the bills but keep you from being so anxious and eventually not being able to function at all. ?
Just a thought.
Keeping you in my prayers.

P-Fit,
Honey I have had to quit three jobs due to my anxiety. My husband never understands and that is so hard. I know how you feel. We are financialy strained so right now I am working two part time jobs to help out. It is so hard. And I know about the kids birthdays too. I sometimes think that my husband and in-laws think that my son is Their son and not mine. They seem to think they should have all the say in it and I should have none, I guess because I'm unstable. I will keep you in my prayers and I hope things get better for you. Do you have insurance on your home? I think most companies cover lightning damage and they should replace everything you lost.
If you need to quit your job, then do it. If it causes you too much stress then you will never be happy, nor will anyone else, so you do what you need to do.
Love to you, Rachel

P-Fit,

Good Morning and I hope today will be a better day for you.

I think you have very legitimate reasons for feeling increased stress right now as you have a lot going on and your feeling the stress which is manifesting itself in feelings of anger.

I see you have received  some great support and advice from the others .  They are very wise.  Please keep posting as sometimes just getting it down in writing helps to lower your stress level.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

We're got a $500 deductible and so far it looks like we may be around $700-$800 in damages. Things are slowly being replace...my garage opens now!! We wont have TV until sometime next week. I think my kids are going to have panic attacks over this :-) I've taken them to the library and we've picked up some board games. I've also tried to get them to help me make dinner so they can learn something useful and not veg in front of the TV.
 
My husband and I had a long talk last night. We are looking over our finances, savings and trying to come up with a reasonable date for me to quit. I dont think they will let me go part time here, at least not in this position. I dont have a passion for this career anyway, but have stayed in it about 18yrs cause I'm good at it and the pay is good. My passion is wellness/fitness and helping teens/women with body image issues. I'm hoping some doors will open in that area soon. I've put some feelers out so we'll see.
 
I've decided to let the in-laws thing go...trying to pick my battles. It's hard when there are big familes on both sides that live a good distance away. I guess he'll be having 2 parties for the next few years until he's old enough to make the guest list...lucky him scool

I think you have made a great decision in letting the inlaw thing go for now and get on with life
Kudos for that

You are doing great by your kids IMHO and I do hope a job opens up that is more suited to you and with les stress for you and UC........

As far as hubby goes have you ever really sat and tried to educate him abput the a/p ??
I had to with mine and with daughter about the crohns and also about a/p
Both belong to HW and they asked questions after questions on the cd forum and they got eduacted plus they checked out stuff on a/p
Actually sadly enough my teen daughter Cait is already ( and has been ) showing signs of a/p and OCD

Children learn what they live IMHO

I am so glad that no lives were lost nor anyone hurt in the lightning episode
Everything can be replaced right
Yes it will take some time but you will get that stuff back
You would not get back anyone had they been killed by the freak lightning

Keep us posted on how things are going and hey dont be a stranger k

Take care
