I should probably just write this on paper and throw it out but I am feeling so depressed and defeated. Yes, dh is doing much better thankfully. But, he keeps talking about negative stuff and I just want to put my hands over my ears. My dd is not okay. She had plans tonight but just told me she's feeling anxious and tired and she's cancelling. I guess I and she just has to wait tilll the lexapro begins to help her. It's only been 4 days since she started. My ds 26 is also in the middle of something and I'm praying it goes through for him. My older son 28 has this great gf and I had a dream last night that she told me he wasn't treating her well. I know this isn't true but my mind is not all right now. I feel like my family is falling apart but I know it really isn't. I guess everyone is just in a funk and I'm falling into it. My 2 sons are actually ok, it's just me thinking the worst. No need to answer, it's really okay and I know things will turn out okay. This is just a hard time.

Sounds like you need to take some time for yourself. Can you call a friend and get out for lunch or dinner? Maybe just go for a walk?
Hang in there…I’ve always adhered to the statement “you’re only as happy as your unhappiest child”

Sending positive thoughts and good vibes that life gives you a well deserved break!

Thinking of you with understanding and support. Its just so hard when there are so many thing not within our control. My daughter has struggled with anxiety since she was 8 and is now 40. It really has just been within the last couple of years that Ive learned to let go and tell myself she has the tools she needs and worrying myself sick wont help anyone. We moms have a right to some peace of mind as difficult as it can be to come by.

I am so sorry that you are experiencing so many stressors at once! Praying that you will find the peace that you so need right now! Not sure what your weather is like, but if yours is as nice as ours has been the last few days, maybe you can get outside for a walk or just to sit in the sunshine. Maybe some quiet time will help!
