Is anyone else struggling

Tuesday, March 02, 2021

Man it seems everybody’s emotions are high and one thing sets them off. I mailed a gift certificate to my parents for a pedicure because they were saying how hard it is for my mom to cut my dad’s and her nails because of her arthritis, and my dad can’t bend down to do it. I was blasted for 10 minutes and in the shame based little kid mode again. Now they want to take us to frankenmuth when we don’t even eat out, and won’t take no for an answer. Because of the raccoon eating our wood decking we contacted my sister about getting the wood out of her garage that we’ve been storing and she turned on me again electronically. I’m separating from my family for awhile, not responding to my sisters attack, and sent a letter of apology to my parents and told them to mail back the certificate since I offended them. We filed the complaint with disability rights to begin the process and wait for our hearing.

    I know what you mean. My daughter called all upset this morning. Thankfully it was not at me. I find myself feeling depressed with all that is going on around me. Know we are here for you. You are a dear friend. We care about you. You are not worthless. You are worthy! emoticon

    Yes, tempers are short everywhere - I see it in my own household too. Sounds like a time out from family is a good thing for now. Do something (safe) that refreshes your soul. emoticon

    Covid Covid fatigue is real. Traveling even for a short day trip is so helpful to reset. Same from mom on her pedicures. Her reaction is not that it's a treat but it symbolizes that she isn't independent anymore. Thankful for kindest nail tech.
