I had right shoulder surgery last Friday and recuperating from that.  I'm not doing a whole lot during the long days and not sleeping well at night.  I've had an ever-growing knot in my stomach since Tuesday and I think it is from anxiety and stress and more likely due to health anxiety.  Can't really talk to Mom and Dad (staying with them while I recuperate) as Mom has enough on her plate (her cat had to be put to sleep last Saturday and Dad left that same morning to go on a mission trip to El Salvador).  She is just trying to stay as busy as possible to keep her mind on other things so I don't feel like I can burden her any more than she has.  I'm not eating as a result of this anxiety knot in my stomach and am just needing some support and advice on how to get back to where I am feeling normal again.  CBT doesn't seem to be helping and I've tried my calming ipod music and reading but just can't seem to get rid of this knot of anxiety.

Dear Diane,


Please take a chance on talking to your Mom and let her decide if it is to much for her to deal with. As a Mother no matter what else is going on I have time for my children and if the problem is bigger then I can deal with I will do my best to find them help.



Mothers are your Mothers for all of your life and you need your Mom. It will help her keep busy too. :)



Gentle Hugs,



Kitt
