I really think I need to set up some sort of strategy for dealing with extreme stress. I'm dealing with a lot of stress right now, even worse I hear these issues may not be resolved for years. All this, on top of taking care of a house filled with kids and DH's busy work schedule/issues.
I don't seem to be able to compartmentalize the stressful situation and put it completely out of my mind. I'm finding it very debilitating to living my daily life. I'm realizing that I can't really function like this long term and it is also likely affecting my health (definitely affecting sleep patterns, etc.).
I don't know where to start in dealing with everything. It's more like coping because it's not a situation that's over and done, it's something that may take years to sort out. I really have no peace of mind at all. And, that's very disconcerting to me. I usually have that, this situation has sort of derailed me and left daily life tasks very difficult for me to focus on.
I know some people would suggest some type of stress release. I'm so far gone these days from who I really am I'm not even sure what would de-stress me.
