You sound worried and stressed, with too much on your plate. Of course something relatively minor can be the tipping point. We've all been there (or is it just me?)

YABU to think YABU smile

So sorry you feel like this but I think it is the last straw and not anything else. If it makes you feel better I cried in front off boss today because I felt pressured. But in reality the work pressure is ok, I'm really crying because we're in the last month of trying to conceive dc2 and I'm finding that hard to accept. I think the big stuff manifests itself in the small stuff because sometimes the big stuff is so huge you're too scared to let it out.

Sometimes you've just got to shout, scream and yell and just not care if it's justified or not. (hey, 3 x 'just' in one sentence..)

We all get like this sometimes. Yes, the reaction to something minor is totally out of proportion to that particular thing. But we're all human, we all have shit - or in your case really, really shit - weeks.

Cut yourself some slack. Don't think about what anyone else might think about it! It's OK! We cannot be perfect, rational, reasonable, lovely human beens all the time.

I meant 'beans' or even 'beings' (boring)

Hope things get better for you!

I agree it's the tipping point

I had a hell of a week last week, completely awful, but what tipped me over the edge was me dropping a cup of tea on the kitchen floor.

I cope fine with stress usually, but I completely lost it, but it was just the final straw

Oh, and I felt a hell of a lot better after I had a good scream and shout and flouncing off in a huff so DH cleared the tea up

'We must have hidden depths. And I always prided myself on my shallowness.'


I feel for you 44So. I had to do the whole being angry with someone who's dead a couple of years ago and it's an absolute bugger. Have a wine

Unplug the phone and have another glass.

It sounds like you're having a tough time OP. I just wanted to remind you of the old cliche of 'the straw that broke the donkey's back'. its a cliche for a reason - its the little things that push us over the edge. I would have another wine meself, but here's a brew too.

thanks for you OP
