ok so its a bad day for me.... it was 8 years ago today that my mom took her life at the age of 36 ( i was 19) so that alone has made for a rough day.... been thinkin about her alot lately.. also my hubby is really sick (viral the drs say) so all day i have been taking care of the kids, and doing all the running around(just got a new van today so lots to do to get that licensed and registered,, and just lots of stuff to get done in general) Well now i have myself all freaked out because today i have had these "twinges" of dizziness that last all of about a second (happened 3x today)... so i freak out and start checking out the symptoms of brain tumors... stupid to do i know.. then i remember i had a migrane the other night (rarely get them), and i have a typical "mommy brain" where ya have those times where ya forget what you were going to say or cant find the right word.. and so i think well maybe i do have a brain tumor.. how stupid can i be? Everyone in the house is sick except me (and the baby but i am nursing thats why) I think i am gettin a head cold tho.. been having phlem all day and my head feels congested right now but my anxiety immediatley thinks the worst! FGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Sorry needed to vent!

Sorry it's been a rough day! I hope tomorrow is better. It can be hard trying to get everything done, take care of yourself too!

Getting a head cold? That can explain the dizziness (if not anxiety related). Sometimes the internet can also be our worst enemy! Hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

Hi Boolie,
Oh honey I'm so sorry to hear about your mother (((Hugs))). It sounds like you are doing a great job at being a wife and mother but you do seem a bit over worked which could also bring on the anxiety. Take a breather you have well earned it...Feed the family and take a long hot soaking bath and tomorrow will hopefulld be a slower day for you. Bless you.

hey hun, I know exactly how you feel, i have 1 year old baby, and his dad is basically my 2nd child!! I spend all day working and cleaning i dont get much help!! i do the same thing you do with the brain tumor!!! My doc said he would do a cat scan just to reassure me, but I dont know if I will, i hope you feel better though, being a mom is the most difficult job!!

Goodness me you have a busy life, stress levels must be running kinda high...I am wondering when you last took yourself off to the doctor for a checkup...Sometimes we busy mums forget that we need to look after ourselves so we can look after everyone else...
Have you got girlfriends who can share the running around with the kids or take turns with transport etc. ?
My mum passed away about ten years ago too...still miss her heaps..would love to just pick up the phone sometimes and tell her everything that's going on...I find myself thinking about her most when I am stressed because I guess we miss that support system we get from our mothers.
Keep your chin up, you have made the first step and reached out and asked for help...well done!
Be kind to yourself.
