i am on the verge of separation. I am still living in the house with WS and i haven't told him of my plans basically because i'm trying to keep the peace so i don't have to deal with his cruelty.
But I am sooooo not good at faking it.
Maybe that's why i have so much anxiety, because i'm trying to hide my intentions. I don't know. In the meantime I'm trying to pack up a four bedroom house without him knowing (??) and select the things I most want to take with me. The rest is likely going to Salvation Army and I just really hope all that $$$ does someone some good, because it feels bad to just dump so many years of stuff and the hard work behind it.
I know, it's just stuff. But I guess I'm still struggling with that.
i also have a home based business and will have to dump a lot of my inventory. It's just stressing me out. I have so much to do, and yet I do SO little everyday because I'm crippled by anxiety!
I am taking an anti-anxiety but it's taken a life of it's own and I'm not really managing.
Trying to motor through. Not sure what to do except calling Salvation Army and just saying TAKE IT. Or the Packrat people who come and just take it!
Anyone else deal with stuff? I know it's dumb. But it's in my way!
((((hugs)))) One step at a time, honey. You'll get there.

Status: Done like dinner
i entirely realize that stuff is so small in comparison to other challenges.
I should really wish for a problem like stuff. It's just stuff!
Trying to keep my wisdom, and keeping my anxiety in check.
Thanks, you're all so kind.
You are courageous beyond measure.
