yep. I hear ya.
Be glad you don't have kids - I have one 18yr old i'm ready to drop kick.
For the first time ever, ever, I couldn't get out of bed. I dragged myself into work after noon and still couldn't wake up and did basically nothing. being the boss it's a rather poor example, i am so done

At least you made it to work I guess. After my husband's accident, I took a month off, then worked a few weeks, had Christmas week off, then worked January and retired Feb 1st so I think I was still in shock so much was able to make it into work. Not saying I was 100% up to par or was a very nice person to be around. I had one whinny person still pestering me Jan 31st - honestly? Can't you leave me alone with your silly problems?
If you do lose your cool with your 18yr old, just apologize later and say you were too sad to function and give them a hug. take care, Josie

Yes, I want to hide away as well. Sometimes I just can't cope and really just want to shut down and for theworld to go away and leave me alone.

I think there are so many expectations.

Holidays are different.

I wanted to hide myself but found myself doing things and my ds said I was humming and singing to myself.

My Mom always cooked her turkey overnight mainly because my dad worked so he could eat before going to bed or when he got up.

My ds loves the smell of turkey.

Remembers what it was like at our old house.

Lots of changes for us but it does get easier.

I saw my dad once so far and he has been here a week.

Letting go of my expectations and not letting it get to me has helped immensely with the stress.

Went for a drive with a friend the other day and it was so nice.

Got to see some snow and enjoyed their company.

We have to make time for us.

Do something just for you.

I love riding the bus checking out the lights.

Helped out at a friend's restaurant.

I definitely have hibernated.

Yesterday I did.

Today I am heading out.

Fresh air and some conversation with others.
