I can relate to all of this too. I don't think it's whining. It's struggling. And we all struggle a lot.
And it is ok to ask for help. Perfectly and totally ok. People like to help. It makes them feel useful and needed. Nothing to feel bad about at all. We're social animals, we need that interaction and support.
Think of it as good practice
Thoughts, not truths.
Starting physiologically if emotional needs are too hard. What are the things that have helped you in the past?
sort ofNot sure if it qualifies as a pity party but I gave up on getting things done yesterday. I mean, I did do the essentials. Stopped by the doctor's office and got my fmla paperwork, took hypermutt to the vet/work, and went to the pet store while he was there. But other than that, didn't do much. Mind shutdown and I let it.
maybe take a couple hours to grieve the pain that has led me to a day like this.
For the moment, maybe pretend you're someone else (that you LIKE) and take care of yourself like you'd take care of them.
yepMaybe, to me, grieving means giving in. Giving in to what I'm not sure at the moment.
NopeI feel like if I'm replying I should make sure I'm constructive in my replies
yep.. Not sure if that's just another way to beat myself up
