For me stress has so much to do with how I feel. In the past when I was working I went to Jamaica and Disney world and I thought I was cured. I was stress free.
I am no longer working and my mother just purchased a home by the Ocean which is 3 hours away from me. We went there for 2 nights on Memorial weekend and I couldn't sleep at all. I already have really bad sleep problems and I am on sleeping medication for it. When I was at the Ocean I took a lot of medication (more than prescribed due to being desperate) with no relief.Everything gets so much worse when I don't sleep. I was a mess and in tears.
My dilemma is that we are supposed to go to the Ocean from the 15th-19th. During this time we are there to celebrate my son's birthday and my anniversary. My brother is also coming up from SC with his family and I wanted to spend time with them.
Since we returned home from the Ocean on Memorial Day weekend I have been so stressed and anxious about the upcoming trip. This has made me sicker too. I wanted to take two cars but my husband said I wouldn't be able to drive that tired anyway. I also asked if he would take me back home if I was sick and then return to the Ocean to finish the trip and he said no and why are we going. If it wasn't for my son's wish to be there during this time to celebrate his birthday I wouldn't go. I love him so much and this sick mom always interferes with his good times.
If you have a suggestion or can teach me meditation either could possibly help. I have also called to inquire about hypnosis for stress and anxiety. Has anyone had any help with this? Anyway thank you for anything you can think of!
