My wedding is in exactly one and a half months. I have been fairly on top of things and up to this point planning has been a breeze. But with my parents purchasing a house, my mother being bi-polar and other family member selfishness…whenever I need help or support I am rushed off the phone or told, “You are smart, you will figure it out.” My Fiance has been working out of town weekly and is only home on Saturday before leaving again so I do not want to stress him out as he isn’t here. And to make matters complicated I am in B2B sales which is extremely demanding. I am even having a hard time keeping up with housework!
Lately my calander has been filled to the brink and yet I can’t seem to get motivated in any realm. Work, wedding, etc. Has anyone else felt this and how did you get over the stress to re-motivate yourself personally and professionally? I need some Stress Managment advice.

@ElissaBee: You need to prioritize. Write a list and figure out what has to be done, what can wait a bit longer, and what things would be nice to be done, but definitely not necessary.
Try to put things into perspective. Yes, a wedding is a huge event, but in reality it’s ONE day of your life and if a few minor things go wrong then who cares. It’s about 2 people being joined. As long as your fiance shows up, you’re good to go lol.
Also try to worry only about things you can control. I try to do this myself. I tend to bog myself down with what-ifs and hypotheticals that get me nowhere. If you can’t control it, don’t worry about it!
Delegate if you can. Can a bridesmaid, friend, family member etc. help? Can you hire a cleaning lady for the housework?
Also keep in mind that the finish line is getting close… this too shall pass.
