Thanks Guys

I really needed that buck up.

I have been feeling overwhelmed of late, with everything going on with the parents. With Christmas fast approaching, I am a control freak, I don't know if you have noticed that with the parents.

Yesterday I also got the talk at work. The mental health talk. 'we know you have legitimate reasons for being absent 16 days this year, but we need to know you are looking after yourself" mmm mum's been hospitalised 5 times this year, once with me being told to call the family she may not make it through the night, and another where they placed her into an induced coma, not to mention dad being hospitalised twice, one of those the recent heart attack. Am I stressed? Fuck yeah, but you are making it worse!

Work is stressing me because things feel up in the air, we were meant to move to another team, there is a fight over who can control my little party of 4. We are left in the dark. I also was given an opportunity for Quality Assurance, 8 months ago, and still haven't been trained or even started on. Frustrating me to no end.

I am really just over everyone and everything.

On a good note, I got to come straight home last night from work. I finish at 4.30pm, was home just after 5pm and was able to cook dinner. Yay for me. I haven't been home that early in a few weeks.

I do need to work on the exercise goals while I can, work on a Christmas list and I'm sure other things.

Glad you're feeling better today. Perfectionism? Not good. Over rated. You have got to work on this as being that way just makes more stress for yourself. I know I've had to work on this A LOT since I had my kiddos. I know how stressful having 2 sick parents can be.

Seems to me the people at work have noticed how stressed and maybe depressed you've been and are concerned. I'm sure the uncertainty is very frustrating, but it is of course nothing you can control, right?

You know what is GREAT for stress? Exercise.

I am glad you are feeling loved because you ARE loved.

I wish, however, that you didn't feel stressed. I wish that you could catch a break for once. :(

Sending you loads of love!
