I am continuing to feel so overwhelmed with everything.  Latest news this week is now my two daughters need to be in counseling.  Last thing I ever wanted is for them to be like me!  ....My brain is in overload, I start crying over anything and everything and literally want to crawl out of my skin.  My ex-husband of course has conveniently let me take care of everything.  But then again its not like he has ever really assumed any serious responsibility anyway.  Everything needs to be about my girls now yet I feel I am incapable of getting it together for more than short periods of time.  All my feelings seem so "loud" inside; if that makes any sense.  I'm at my maximum amount of Cymbalta and close to max on Trazadone.  I just really need some peace inside...just a little bit of quiet.  How do I do this?

***sending peace your way*** I wish you were closer! BIG HUGS and call me anytime you need to talk.

Maybe it's a good thing for the girls to go to counseling, so they don't have issues later on because of all the crap going on right now.

Lots of Love!

Divorce is very hard not only on us, but on our children. I know my girls, all adults now, really could have benefited from some counceling. Let them go, I think it would be really good for them. As for the ex just do the best you can with your kids. In the future they will see who they really could count on and who they couldn't. Good luck and healing prayers going your way.

Cass I am sooo sorry you are still struggling so much with all of this stuff! ((((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))). I wish I had some magic words for you to make it all better but I don't. Praying and meditation and keeping your eyes focused to the finish line is what got me thru. The good news is when all this passes you will soooo be able to appreciate the calm after the storm. Soon this will be a distant memory. Don't feel bad your kids are going to counseling it is a good thing. They are just as affected by the divorce as you no matter how hard you try to shield them. Please remember to get in touch thru email with me. I changed jobs and am home most of the day now. luv u xoxox
