I’ve tried.
So long.
But it’s not enough.
Whatever I do.
How do you keep going?

AtSea1979 Tue 24-Oct-17 22:52:47

Erm..going to need a little more info

Phantomoutforthechill Tue 24-Oct-17 22:53:32

Give me a clue, what's the subject?

Anymajordude Tue 24-Oct-17 22:53:55

Are you alright? Do you need to talk?

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 22:55:12

My “D”H is asleep.
Oblivious.
As always.
DC2 tries so hard.
So kind
But it’s not fair for her to support the rest of us.
I have always been the one who copes. And organises. And makes decisions. And earns.
And I am tired.
More than tired.

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 22:55:54

No.
I’m not alright.
Not this time.
It’s too much.

Phantomoutforthechill Tue 24-Oct-17 22:56:39

How old is Dc2 Op?

Anymajordude Tue 24-Oct-17 22:58:31

Yes life can seem relentless sometimes. Do you have any other support? What are you battling with?

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 22:59:05

No other support.

wtf2015 Tue 24-Oct-17 22:59:08

Can you give us some more details? You sound very desperate. Please don’t put yourself in danger.

wobblywonderwoman Tue 24-Oct-17 22:59:43

Tell us more op. Can you make yourself a hot drink

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 23:02:35

Holding on for DC

Anymajordude Tue 24-Oct-17 23:02:39

Stay with us OP. What's up?

frenchfancy81 Tue 24-Oct-17 23:03:48

Please do talk to us x

Phantomoutforthechill Tue 24-Oct-17 23:04:01

A hot drink sounds like a very good idea. My Dc2 thinks instant hot chocolate is the end to all worries.

Nandoshoes Tue 24-Oct-17 23:04:33

Hi op. Tell us more we want to hear what's going on x

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 23:05:13

But I’ve tried.

wtf2015 Tue 24-Oct-17 23:05:21

Or a cup of tea. Nothing is ever as bad as it seems.

C0untDucku1a Tue 24-Oct-17 23:05:37

How old is dc2?

Anymajordude Tue 24-Oct-17 23:05:44

Yes do hold on. Think of how much you love them which is why you have to hold on. They need you. What help do you need?

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 23:06:09

I’ve been telling myself that for 2 years.
It’s a long time.

Redhead17 Tue 24-Oct-17 23:06:40

Life can just be a viscous circle of shite.

No matter what we do, who we do it for there are those in life me included that wonder when some fucker is gonna do something for us.

Probably never so we keep on because we are strong and coffee is lovely

I was listening to a radio programme the other day talking about stress, which they defined as being when your emotional resources are outstripped by the demands placed upon them - then even a minor thing is too much. Is that what you mean by saying you can’t cope, or is it a different type of feeling?

TooLateNotAnymore Tue 24-Oct-17 23:06:58

I’ve tried to help.
