In the big scheme of human suffering I know my problems are small, but today I feel tired.

I'm tired of the overwhelming emotions. I'm tired of doing it alone. I'm tired of being judged by people who have no idea what I've been through, much less what it would be like to experience it personally. I'm tired of being told to move on, not to dwell. I'm tired of trying to forge a new future when I was happy with the old one. I'm tired of not having anyone IRL I can talk to and feel understood. I'm tired of people avoiding me as if my pain is contagious. I'm tired of carving out time for therapy, and I'm damn sure tired of needing pills everyday just to function.

I need a hug.

You've got it. (((((Tripletrouble)))))

IrishGirlVA posted 4/29/2014 09:46 AM

Here are some more hugs -- ((((Tripletouble))))

And I understand. If I hear, "Everything happens for a reason" one more time, I might just lose it.

People keep telling me "its gets better". That's not the problem, the problem is NOW. So sorry you are hurting and feel alone. ((HUGS))

((((hugs Tripletrouble))))

It is hard. I agree you have every right to feel the way you do. This shi* is hard.

I am over 2 years out and just in the past 2 weeks finally stopped taking sleeping pills. Still going to IC.

Triple: Sorry for the pain sister... we are here for you. We care.

I get this, Trip. I know now that my marriage sucked, but I still miss the blissful ignorance I had back then. I have a lot of hope for the future, but that shit can get tiring!

Tomorrow is a new day. In the meantime, we're all here for you.

I recommend ice cream. Not the kind in your fridge, the 'have someone put hot fudge and a cherry on top' kind. It always makes me feel better.

If that doesn't work, here's some more hugs. (((TripleTrouble))

marlie2014 posted 4/29/2014 15:07 PM

((triple)) + sending you virtual ice cream.

I, too, am tired of hearing "everything happens for a reason." Who came up with that crap???

AlwaysBeenStrong posted 4/29/2014 16:24 PM

I am tired too...but not tired enough to give you the (((((triple))))) for you :)

AlwaysBeenStrong posted 4/29/2014 16:28 PM

I am tired too...but not tired enough to give you the (((((triple))))) for you :)

Grace and Flowers posted 4/29/2014 16:47 PM

Yep. I get it. Over two years out and I'm still pretty tired and beat. First a hug for you (((((triple))))). Then I think I'll try that ice cream suggestion.

tryingagain74 posted 4/29/2014 17:00 PM

Yep. I still have those days myself.


I'd also like to recommend some guilty pleasure TV watching or reading to go with that hot fudge sundae.

Tripletrouble posted 4/29/2014 20:22 PM

Thanks for all the SI love today. I sure have needed it. I ended up having a decent dinner and conversation with both my teens, which is a treat indeed. I then indulged in an obscene amount of high quality brownie infused ice cream.

What is it about a couple off handed comments from the judgy types or even the well meaning but misguided ones that can push our buttons so easily? I think for many of us it's because we've second guessed ourselves for months or years trying to make the "right" decisions, and we don't need anyone striking a nerve. And those well intended comments? I clench my teeth when I hear "you have to decide what you want now". Really?? No shit! I can barely put on matching clothes but I'm supposed to map out my new life.

I'm running a fever now too and this has probably contributed to my poor state of mind. Or maybe I'm getting sick because I'm emotionally drained. It all blurs.

Tomorrow we'll do it all again.

Oodles of hugs....


and some doggy kisses, lol.

Doggy kisses are the cure for just about everything! I was going to recommend chocolate, but I see you just had some. I hope it does the trick and you feel better soon, physically and emotionally.

Hang in there.
