You've Got Me Feeling Emotions

I have been REALLY emotional lately. Well pretty much forever. But lately I've been noticing it more and more. And it's getting old. Quick.
I'm getting ready to go through a couple really big changes in my world so maybe that is too blame. But if I'm not any better by September, I am really considering phoning a doctor for some help. I feel like a lunatic. And I don't just want to get a quick fix in a pill but I am really feeling desperate. Really.
I think one of my problems too is that I need to get back to church. I just can't seem to make that plunge back in. After being hurt and discarded so many times by people that were supposed to be your leaders and friends. It's not so easy to put ourselves back out there. But I really think I need it, my husband and kids need it too. Ouch.
David has been really supportive through all of my crazy times. I am soooo appreciative of that. I feel so betrayed and tortured by my family & friends at times and he is always there to pick me up and point me in the right direction. I do not know what I would do without him. And that thought scares me because alot of times my frustrations and craziness is taken out on him. I worry constantly that one day he's just gonna get tired of that. Scary.
So I'm trying to breathe in and out on a regular basis. I have been eating junk and that's not helping. I need to get through the next 5 weeks and then I will see what my life entails and can come up with a plan to get through it, either with medical help or without. We'll see!

Sorry to hear that you've been having a tough time. I really applaud you for recognizing it and even considering help. There are people in my life who just need a little bit of help to get through tough times, but they are too proud to admit the need to talk to somebody or even be on medication. And the denial just makes it worse for that person and the people that surround them.

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. And a big hug through cyber space!!
