I'm so overwhelmed
I'm having a really bad day.
I can't stop crying and I'm home alone. Work was so stressful and shit this morning. There were so many problems I had to try and diffuse and manage staff not dealing with situations properly.
And I found out a close family relative died yesterday around lunchtime and I think it's finally hit me because I'm so sad and stressed.
My chest hurts so much and I have to keep reminding myself to breathe. I was supposed to spend the afternoom with my boyfriend but he made other plans last minute and I was really looking forward to seeing him. I'm having dinner with him thankfully.
But I feel so alone and stressed. Everything is just going shit again. I can't deal with this :'(
Please help me I'm having a really bad day. Full on emotional breakdown like sobbing it's ridiculous.
Re: I'm so overwhelmed
Hey @mspaceK, I second what @Tiny_leaf has said, I'm sorry to hear about your close family relative's passing and your struggles lately . I also second @Tiny_leaf's question on whether or what you need anything at the moment? Did you end up having dinner with your boyfriend? Sending hugs <3
Hope is just around the corner; you think it's not there when you first look straight ahead, but it actually is when you turn around
Re: I'm so overwhelmed
Hi @mspaceK I'm so sorry to hear of your family friends passing, knowing someone who has passed away is a very intense, strange experience and feeling, and grief will come in waves, good days and bad days. I know a couple of days ago was a bad day but I hope your day today is better. Having all that work stress and your boyfriend making other plans would also add to the loneliness and stress you feel, and I'm sorry you had such a shitty day, but you should be so proud of yourself that you jumped on here to share your feelings.
Please always remember that having crying/sobbing episodes is okay, sometimes our body even needs them.
If you ever feel like you need more advice about grief I have linked a RO article about grief below:
