    Hi there,

    So life has kind of fallen apart around me. Not in one huge way but in a bunch of small ways.

    My Birthday and Christmas are coming up and socializing is very draining for me still. I can deal.

    The guy I'm seeing occasionally asked me to be his girlfriend and to see me more often. Had to have the "what I can and cannot handle talk" & currently dealing with questions and butthurt boy. I can deal

    My Mother who is my rock is suddenly being rushed into surgery for disc in her back that have deteriorated and shifted. She's lost sensation in some of her body. Surgery is Friday in a very large city. She was supposed to have an MRI, no one called her for one. I CANNOT DEAL.

    I feel like I'm drowning. I've tried all of my usual coping strategies as well as distraction and medication. Nothing is helping, I've been up for roughly 55 hours. What the flip do I do?!

    Trust comes in many forms and that is often hard for some. :hug: Trust in the doctor for your Mom is needed, trust in yourself for resilience, and trust perhaps in the new possible relationship. Big steps with needed self compassion inorder to perhaps be gentle on yourself.

    Sending prayers for all to go well for your Mom and for you to find the rest you need shortly.
