Feeling overwhelmed

I've been thinking about all that is going on in my life. And all of a sudden it is feeling overwhelming. Still being sick doesn't help any. A little better today.

All of a sudden things are going to get crazy. Selling one house, finding another place to live. Packing up. That's going to be a monumental task.

New patterns to develop. New drive to work. New supermarket and pharmacy. Different bedroom, bathroom and shower. A roommate. His patterns to get used to.

I sorta can't believe it's happening.
Feel like I want to run away.

I guess I knew there would be times like this.

Just remember that eventually it will calm down.

Mostly I have been very good with things. Positive outlook and somewhat excited. It just all of a sudden hit me.

I know this must be hard for you. It will get better, I promise.

I'll hold you to that promise. It will get better and there will be good days and bad days. More good than bad I think.

Oh I know that kind of hell. A year later, it's still hell. Yours, Yours will get better!

My divorce isn't a Hell at the moment, just daunting. Moving without a divorce is stressful, this just adds an additional wrinkle.

Bless your heart.....I know this is hard. I think even when it is for the better, it is still very hard. Thinking about you.

Change is always difficult for me. Even good change seems like it needs a motivator.
I will be better for the process. Just rough going through it even under these good circumstances (it not being war of the roses)

Change is hard for me to accept....even when it's MY idea! I'm the kind that likes for things to stay the same most of the time...so I can indetify with your feelings here. I've been in this apartment for almost a year now....still have MANY boxes that remain unpacked. NOT a good thing. I will be moving again sometime during the next year....so before then I'm going to go through all this CRAP and get rid of the biggest part of it. For heaven's sake...if I haven't needed it in almost a year...how important could it possibly be?? lol Good luck with all the changes sweetie....just take it slowly and BREATHE!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Aries Girl,
Yup, me and change have a difficult time as well. We have those same boxes in the basement that have been there for 9 years. Guess they will be hitting the trash.
Good luck with your impending move.
Slow but steady and beathing. Thanks

Big steps, but I know they will be worth it for you. Change is not always easy, especially in this sort of circumstance. It will get better though sweetie and you will be a happier man for it. Big hugs and kisses to you!!!
