Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

If it is any help, there must be a wave of overwhelm going on because I've been out of it because of it the last couple of days.

Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

Don't nevermind

It sucks, have you tried changing your point of view on things ? Get a different focus, perspective ? Yesterday I felt trapped as well

Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

I know how you feel. The heat right now just makes it impossible to cope and focus. Even with meds.

Hope you're doing well Fuzzy. Take care.

Overwhelmed hugs everyone.

I've started doing some stuff and am feeling slightly better. Trying to push the big stuff, the big worries, out of my mind and just get on with the little things. Ignorance and denial are bliss.

Baby steps.

Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

Fine. Slapped on some mascara, wrote up a cold formula piece for you and ironing a shirt.
I just don't want to go outside. I'm all agoraphobic again. LOL's whole family-HUGE-is coming in one by one for the parades and stuff. 30,000 extra people in town. Crazy.

Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

It is only a week. I'm sure I'll live. I'm shopping after she eats though. She hates that but she'll live too. And I really am going to get my hair cut.

No, although I probably should. I'm only barely a mile away and she has a LifeAlert thing around her neck. She really should not be left alone but she has an amazing bladder. She'll wait 14 + hours before she gets up to go. The family wants her alone until she goes to the nursing home. Unreal. Huge house.

I didn't shop OR get my hair cut. She went all thin-lipped and mad when I was ready to go.

Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

.....It seems you're going along ...and things are fine ...and then ....whoosh ....you're feeling buried and overwhelmed .....

it seems like every project I do is massive ( for me) and scary to start and then get overwhelmed at many points....and I just have to keep pushing through otherwise the mess it leaves me in puts me in a worse position than I was before ....

I used to start projects without a clear picture of what I wanted to do and the steps I needed to take to get there ......

I am finding out that if I can somehow see what it is I want to do and how to get there ....I do better .....if it's a long project, then I take smaller steps along the way ...

I know this has been said a billion times before by just about everyone ...but until you really get it ....it just sounds like gobbilty gook .....

Re: Starting to feel overwhelmed again

Thanks for this thread all of you. Sometimes I doubt that I even have ADD because I will be taking my meds and yet I still feel my brain floating aimlessly. I will think I am just using it as an excuse and in actuality I'm just brain damaged or something. I'm glad to know many of you have off days as well.
