Odd socks! What was your final straw?

The last two years have been a real roller coaster, cheating H, abandoned, divorced, DD's overdose ( now much improved!), met lovely new DP 😊recently dad passed away after a long illness. All of these things I've survived with varying degrees of success , but today I found myself sobbing my heart out over odd socks!
It just got me wondering what is/was the one daft thing that was your last straw?

So glad to hear dd is ok now. Give her some flowers from me [heart]

And you for all you've been through flowers [heart]

I recently had chemo and put my head down and got through it - as you do.
Near the end of the (6 month) treatment the permanent line for administering the chemo got blocked and they had to do it in my hand. God it hurt. I cried buckets and buckets and buckets. Fair howled, actually. Bit embarrassed about that now but I hadn't cried much, or at all, up to that point. It had to come out.

Thanks springy, mumsnet helped me in the dark days more than I ever thought possible, still can't find the odd socks though 😂

I think when we are going through something exceptionally tough we get a face like flint to get through it. Then when it's over it all comes out - the shock and horror and trauma

That's what I'm finding, anyway blub

Oh springy! That makes my odd socks blub even less significant! But you're right we all need an outlet from time to time! I hope your treatment is now complete and you're over that hurdle.

I absolutely sobbed my heart out at the 'tell me about your happy relationship' thread late the other night. Not in a happy way.
