So frustrated STILL

Oct 11, 2016 12:45 AM

I lost my job in Mar of 2015 after my daughters extended illness. I was at one of lowest and sickest times. As a result we moved from the Gulf Coast back home to live in my parents house. Fast forward a year and they break our agreement and kick us out. Add sister in law moving in. Add both my kids moving out. Add an extreme ankle sprain I am still in pain over. Add 4 months of hell being put in the middle of her and my husband. My pain levels are through the roof. I have an abcessed tooth. My neck has always carried my stress and it's KILLING me. I pray daily for God to approve my disability and relieve my stress. It's just so hard, y'all, to feel like a failure. Thx for your time.

Life throws all these curve balls at us and sometimes it is plain not fair. How we cope will dictate resulting impact. It is hard to see the light through the fog. A good psychologist will help one cope . I'm not sure if that is an option for you .

Not at this time. I'm
waiting to get into the public mental health clinic.

Deep breathing exercises along with sitting in perfect alignment can help. Gentle neck stretches too. I carry all my stress there too. Hope you get some relief soon

You are not a failure, it very unfortunate what has happened but it is not your fault. I hope everything gets better for you.

You are not a failure. Look at all you have accomplished, & how brace you were to move in with Mom???!! I'd have strangled my Mom in a day & a half!! You right now have a lot on your plate as well as feeling extreme pain. I am so sorry you have dental pain like an abscess inflicts. I have had a toothache for 2 days. Saw dentist & he said I need 2 crowns immediately. I went home & tried to think of a way to to dig up that kind of money. Arrrrgh
You take care of yourself. Wish I had a huge bottle of magic reliever to send !😢
