Okay, so I'm thinking I have some serious issues on the go here in my little world. I wore a new pair of capris while walking the dog this afternoon and of course she stomped her way through a puddle and covered me in little mud spots. Well, I started to cry! Callie just stared at me for a bit and then continued on her merry way. I franticly scrubed them when I got home and they appear to be okay (you know how mud spots stick better than ketchup). I need to get a grip girls!

Big Hugs, Susan. By no means are you emtionally damaged, you are completely normal! I've always rationalized those 'cry at the drop of a pin' emotions to be the part of me that keeps me sane. Every day there are so many things that cause our emotions to be in flux, and so when all the little things add up to a big thing...that's when they need to come out. Ok, that sounded silly, but I hope that I got my point across.

More big hugs!!! Keri

Awww Sus, my heart breaks to hear that. I know it's hard, and right now it's more then you can handle. So it's ok to just breakdown. We all have these days, when it seems like nothing is going right.

Take mine for instance, I rented a weed wacker yesterday, well the first one I got wouldn't start and the second one I got ran out of gas before I was finished. So I decided to wait till to day to buy some 2 cycle oil for it. Well needless to say today it was rainy. Oh let's not mention the fact that my lawn mower won't start. But that's not what sent me over the edge.... it was the fact that I broke a nail messing with my mower!!!! Well I had myself a good cry over that one.

But I know that things will get better cause I will make them better. I take comfort in my friends and my family (you should see my phone bill!) So I say to you "Take solace in me and all of us that care so much for you, Tomorrow maybe better and if not we are here for you."

Luvs & Hugs!

If you are, then we all are! LOL. I cried the other night because my dinner was cold. LOL. It's like, sheesh, everything else stinks, can't my dinner at least be hot!? As if giving up my DH for an undetermined amount of time in a dangerous place isn't bad enough, I have to have a cold dinner? How is that fair?

See where I'm coming from? Maybe we can get adjacent rooms in the loony bin.

If we go in the looney bin together will they do all the cooking and cleaning for us and can we just sit around and watch Disney movies all day ?

Yeah, but we'll have to "share" our feelings in some stupid group session. lol

Thanks for the support. I really appreciate it. And a cold dinner and broken nail would have done it for me today too. I'm glad I'm not alone on this one. Somedays I think I'm going completely bonkers.

Hope Monday is a better day for all of us.

Totally, totally, totally can relate, Susan! I agree with the others - you've just got a million things going on "upstairs". Take some deep breaths - and incorporate doing so into your days. Do you keep a journal? When I feel overwhelmed with life it's a great place to just "dump" all my pressures. Re-reading the entries a few days later helps me put things into perspective.

I'm thinking of you! Hope today's brighter than yesterday for you.

Hugs, Jill

No, you are not emotionally damaged Sus! Sometimes you just get so stressed out and something small will just take you over the edge. I've done it before too, and I'm not the type of person that cries alot or in front of anyone. It's even hard for me to cry in front of dh sometimes. However, when I do I get it out, I feel better and I go on. Lots of hugs to you and everything will be ok. Just know that we are all here for you.

Love,

Michelle
