Breathe!!!

Make your SO give you a hug.

Sit down and write everything in list form. Then figure out what can give. Can the cabinets wait until next week? Can you get someone to do some of the driving for you so you can study? Can you put your notes on a minirecorder (there are even phone apps for this) and then listen back to them while you drive?

Most importantly… you just have to get through Monday. It’ won’t last for ever. It’ll be OK.

We’ve all had moments like that!  You’ll get through it!  I suppose it doesn’t seem like such a big deal to me because my life is like what you’re describing constantly, so trust me, it’ll pass and you’ll live!

(((hugs)))  I’m sorry you’re dealing with this, I know what it’s like. Frown

I work from 7am to 1am and it’s crazy how much only getting 4-5 hours of sleep affects you.  I really wish I had more advice for you, the only thing that keeps me going is to remind myself that this is NOT forever.  Some day I’ll be able to work a normal 40 hour work week and see my SO more than once a week.  (We live together but our schedules are so opposite we rarely get see each other.) Hang in there! It’s not forever!

ETA: Feel free to PM me, I know how much it sucks and we all know misery loves company. =P

@MsBrooklynA: Stop thinking negatively!  “I should be able to push through it… but I can’t.” “…but it’s really stressful.”

Start to see the positives in it and it’ll help…You HAVE a job, you HAVE a wedding to go to (which means you have friends!) you’re going to school so you get to HAVE an education.  You HAVE a home!

Sorry, people like me are annoying when you’re feeling this way, I know.  I was feeling overwhelmed yesterday because the wedding is 3 weeks away.  But I took some time to breathe and remember it too will pass.

@Ryansgirl:

Mmm kay.

 @MsBrooklynA:

You can’t keep going at this rate and you’re just going to have to say ‘no’ at some point or you’re a gonna break!  I hope your load gets lighter, real-quick!

@MsBrooklynA: It’s ok, I get the same way when I’m tired.  Thank god my SO knows me so well that he can tell when my mopey I-just-can’t-do-it-anymore moods are from lack of sleep, and he’ll put me to bed.  Embarassed It’s embarassing that I fall asleep as early as 6pm on my one night off, and the one night I get to see him, but he loves me and wants me to be less miserable (and, ya know, not grouch at him).

I have to head off to my other job, but I’ll check back later.  Feel better! Just keep taking it one day at a time and before you know it things will be back to normal.

@Oneeleven: & @MsBrooklynA:  Whenever I post something about my feelings, I get honest advice which I might not agree with at the time and get upset.  No need for you to be snarky back to me.  I’ve been nothing but nice to everyone on this board, but that was a little rude in my opinion.

@MsBrooklynA: You have every right to be stressed out. You are doing a lot right now. 

I agree with the PP that suggested writing it all out and seeing what can be put off a little longer. You do need alittle more time to sleep and regroup if at all possible. 

We are always here to help and listen if you need to vent. 

You do not and should not just “suck it up”. You are allowed to be stressed considering all you are dealing with.
