Aw!!! You have been pushing yourself hard so no wonder! Be as nice to yourself as you would be towards your own best friend. If your best friend posted the above, you'd say, "You need to rest. Here, put your feet up, and I just refilled your ice machine so please ice for a while. Want some ice cream? You are still recovering from major surgery and need to rest and sleep."@Poctdb thanks...good suggestions.
I'm an emotional wreck today & I'm really frustrated with myself. I'm sure part of it is hormonal. It's just hitting me this morning how much working in the kitchen hurt & what the heck is wrong with me, thinking I can do a full week already? And the crazy sports schedules we have starting next weekend & we need to go grocery shopping & work politics stress & wahhhhh!!
Yesterday I was all lighthearted about it all but my stress level was rising behind the scenes & blamo- all the feels at once. Now I'm a tearstained mess who would like to stick her head in the sand & hide from life.
Why does this always surprise me? This is not an unusual cycle, I've had depression for years so I should expect it but it hits like a ton of bricks. Every. Stinking. Time.
My life is good overall. I am progressing. I am stronger. I can do more. I have a home, 3 amazing kids & a loving husband. I have good friends & a great job that I love. I have a ton to be thankful for...why isn't that enough?
Depression is dumb & annoying & inconvenient. I'm not looking for answers, just needed a place to vent. I want my life back dangit!
Please feel free to give me a virtual smack in the face, clearly I need an attitude adjustment today.
It is hard to know where the line is that we must not cross for fear of doing too much. For years we have known where that line was, but now our bodies have changed the rules and it's very easy to accidentally overdo.
