Roller coaster stress ride!

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Has anyone been on a stress roller coaster ride? It has been doing a number on me since December. So what's causing me the stress.....my new husband. I love him dearly, but he is causing me stress over my son who has been trying to find a job for last 3 years. It's been very, very tough out there and I've been trying to explain to my husband that it's going to take time. It took my husband 3 years to find a job here in San Diego, why couldn't he understand the same for my son. I've been trying to play peace keeper and I'm stuck in the middle and so torn. My son is good person who is just having a difficult time right now. He's overweight and has diabeties and I can't just throw him out into the street.

I spoke with my son many times about putting in more job applications, and he said "Mom, I've been doing that! I could see in his eyes that he was hurt and he was stressing as well.

All of this stress has caused me to put on weight and not exercise.

I was excited to find out from my son that he had an interview and got the job. It's a temp job, but can turn to a terminate position. I was so happy for him. I'm hoping that my husband will back down alittle and give him his space.

I'm keeping my prayers to God that he will continue to be with me and this family. One less stress to worry about, but I know the next step my husband wants is for my son to move out. I don't know how long I can handle this.

    You are having difficult situations. The job market is so difficult right now - especially for young people without experience. Congratulations to your son for getting the temp job which will give him experience and possibly transcend into a permanent thing. It's always hard for a mom when someone is not nice to our children. Whether it's in kindergarten on the playground or as an adult. You are definitely caught in the middle between the men in your life! I'll be saying a prayer for you that everything can be resolved soon.

    Hang in there Carol! It's an adjustment for you and Rick to start your new life together, and for you and your son to continue life as you know it with Rick included. It's all an adjustment, hang in there and keep praying! I will pray for peace within your family. emoticon
