feeling overwhelmed


Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

i'm at home with my mom (and dad). so many people have come by to pray with my mom, and now that they are gone, i feel such a nervous energy. i feel like i am supposed to be doing something but i don't know what, so i'm throwing all of of my anxiety at you guys (sorry :oops:). it's just so hard because people are telling me to do this and that for my mom and me, and i'm just feeling overwhelmed right now. :cry: i talk to my mom and pray as she sleeps, but i know that she needs her moments alone (all these people could only make her feel overwhelmed at times too), so i leave the room for a while. but then i don't know what to do with myself. :cry: she can't really talk, and she is so weak right now. i'm still holding onto my faith like it's the last string that is holding me up right now. i feel like i could run a marathon right now (but i know that i would collapse in the first quarter mile...i'm not like david p.!). thanks for listening...i'll probably be browsing for a while, but i don't think i can really focus on posting (so sorry in advance :cry:).

God bless,

I feel like I know where you're coming from in your post. I react the same way when many people are around, some giving their advice.

But then a new day dawns and I am able to get myself together. Hopefully this new day will be a calmer one for you. Don't forget to take some time off for yourself (even a short break) - I notice that when I do I come back as a new and refreshed caretaker.
