SS Graduation
      #784286 - 05/03/12 05:00 AM

After much deliberation, I have chosen not to attend. I am ok with that, and H is ok with it. He rented a van, is taking the girls and 3 grand kids. His ex, her H and one gkid will go with them. They will all drive the 600+ miles to the base. I will stay home in a peaceful household and do what I want. LOL. It will be too hectic, and to me it was more important that his parents were there. After the incident over the weekend of the oldest Grandson pitching a fit and being carried kicking and screaming to the game field, I do NOT feel I am equipped right now with dealing with small children. Once I have a few more sessions with the counselor, and he gives me the tools I need to handle things, maybe I will be better around them and his ex. But right now, I am overly sensitive to everything. The meds are not working, will be seeing the GP again to tell her. Still have bouts of crying, and depression is still a black cloud over my head. The lack of sleep is not helping. Even with sleeping pills, I still get up a few times a night, and end up awake at 3 or 4 am, not going back to sleep.

Ask your GP for Trazadone - it helps with sleep and depression but it will make you a little groggy in the morning at first and you need to take it early enough in the evening to combat that effect and it is uber cheap.

I think you should have gone because you are a "parent" and should be by your hubby side but I understand where you are coming from with being in a van for all that time with children who are not well behaved (is it a consistency issue with the parents and discipline?) and your inability at this time to control your emotions in a anxiety filled situation.

Good Luck with the therapist and rest assured you will learn the tools you need as long as you are fully invested in the therapy. It will take a while to be able to use those tools effectively so don't try to rush things and it will probably be two steps forward one step back for some time but it will get better and once you know yourself and appreciate yourself you will be able to separate yourself from the issues and move forward. You will eventually be able to take life day by day and and enjoy yourself =)
