Hungover

Yesterday was a significant date for us. While I can't say I really triggered, I was on high-alert all day. I didn't sleep the night before, didn't sleep well last night and I'm emotionally exhausted.

I feel like I have a hangover, but this sure as hell wasn't preceeded by a party.

well... maybe a pity party?

Emotional hangovers are legit. Totally know what you're talking about.

Be gentle with yourself the next couple days. Rest. Don't push yourself.

Us too, neverdidthink - and I had to leave the gym early today because I felt sock/"toxic." I wonder if that is what it was for me as well? I also slept crazy-hard.

Aubrie and bionicgal, thank you both. I'm tired of being "strong".

On top of all the A crap, My D23 had a huge blowout with her NPD father(my WH#1). While I'm honestly surprised it took this long, it's still hard to see your child reach a point where she understands that NC with him is really her only
healthy option.

The upside is that WH(2) has been fabulous support to D23 and D20 through this and so much more. It helps remind me that he is so much more than his A.

It's hard to watch your child in that kind of pain, but you have to applaud her for having the strength to know and follow what she needs...kudos to you mom for raising a self-aware, emotionally strong young woman.

It helps remind me that he is so much more than his A.

(((hugs)))

karma: thank you, your post made me cry.

I have put up with way too much crap in my life. My biggest wish when my daughters were born was to raise them to be kind and compassionate, but to stand up for themselves and the things they believe in. D23 has done just this. D20 is still finding her way, but has a great role model and sounding board in her big sister.
