Sad I am a mess! We are trying to move house (will probably exchange and complete in a week and a half ish), I am changing job, our house sale fell through and we have had massive family issues over the past few weeks (my side)...add to that 10 months of commuting for 3hrs 20 a day, some poor health, an operation, going back to work too quickly and no time off since November and I CAN'T COPE! I feel so bloody pathetic! We are part exchanging the house now and it's being marketed by an estate agent on behalf of the builder, went out today so they could show someone round at 2, got back at 3 and they have deadlocked the door, we have told them not to, they only have the deadlock key as we were away one weekend and deadlock when we are away overnight. Anyway locked out as had only taken Yale key and estate agent shut! Managed to get in touch by mobile and eventually get let back in by the manager at 5 ,by which time I was hot, thirsty, hungry, needed the loo and just cried at her when she turned up Sad feel awful, not even her fault! Now been in bath for hour and a half, have been brought 3 glasses wine and chocolate by dh but still just feel like crying Sad I am a twat. I do know this. I should be happy :

I have a great new job to go to
I have a lovely dh
I have wine
I have chocolate
I wall (hopefully) have a lovely new house
My medical issue is pretty much fixed

I need to Grin but all I can do is snivel. Slap me and tell me to get a bloody grip

You have had a lot on and perhaps now you are allowing yourself to process it.
You have had to cope and now your body is having to reset itself.
Allow yourself some time and cry away if you have to. :)
Keep thinking about the good stuff to replace the bad stuff in your mind.

Sounds like you've had one of those days/weeks/months! You don't need to get a grip, you need chill-out time. Sit in bed tomorrow (or outside in the sun) and chill out, refuse to do anything else and have a switch-your-brain-off day :-)

You don't need a grip, you need a cuddle, a really good cry and a good night's sleep!

Your stress load is awful, but will get better once the move and job change are done. Keep a hold of the big picture!

and have more Wine

Thankyou all so much! I feel ridiculous, I know sooo many people have it soo much harder, but I am just exhausted Sad I read your messages, cried then went downstairs and dh had cooked my fave meal, including veg (!) and saved me his last rolo Grin...things aren't all bad, I just need some sleep I think! Poor woman from the estate agency!

Aw, bless DH :-) (and bollocks to the estate agency lady - they shouldn't have fucked up in the first place).

<a class="break-all" href="" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">here sorry

The being locked out would have done for most of us. Wine

You sound tired. When I get tired everything seems more annoying and upsetting than it might otherwise. At least you have a DH who understands romance but may I ask what he did with the rest of the rolos? Smile


SweetHoneyBeeeeee · 08/06/2013 20:19

Haha! Thanks cat your link (and the fourth glass of vino) has made me laugh. Beyond thanks for your two kind messages. You are all right, I need to sleep! DH is great...even if non of the other good stuff was happening I should be grateful! And I am...just tired Grin I sometimes just want to be allowed to be sad/tired/cry and he just wants to fix everything and tries so hard so I have to stick a smile on and crack on rather than sit and cry which is what I think might actually make me feel better damn him for being so bloody supportive!
