falling apart

Hello again, everyone. If you read my earlier posts, you know that I just moved my mom and terminally ill dad to LA. To me, that is a world away!! I already miss her terribly, and I know that I will not see Dad again this side of Heaven. I have 6 days till my surgery, and I think I am driving myself and everyone around me crazy!! I homeschool, and I am afraid my kids are bearing the brunt of all my mixed up feelings. I am sad, nervous, and sometimes even angry at the whole situation!! After reading all the other posts on the boards, I realize that these feelings are normal. I am so very thankful for all the info and encouragement that I have received through this site! I have ordered the book, "Hystersisters," and am looking forward to all the practical advice and laughter that it will bring. Thanks so much for letting me whine! I am so glad to be a part of this site!!

Any one of those things would be a good reason to be freaking out....you have a BUNCH!

It's perfectly normal to have these kinds of emotions right now, and your situation is sort of super-sized by the other emotional things you're going through as well! If you weren't having a hard time, I'd really be worried about you.

Just don't beat yourself up over this turmoil....because it's normal and it will PASS. Maybe explain to your kids in a calm moment that it's not them that's making mommy freak out, it's the tension, and that you'll be better very soon. Kids are very adaptable....they won't hold it against you.

Hang in there, let yourself feel what you need to feel, and keep breathing! We're all here for you!!!

Wow, what a chaotic time in your life!! Hard enough facing one major change, let alone all that.

We are surgery sisters -- I'll be thinking about you. Someone else started a thread about surgery sisters picturing themselves all holding hands as they go into the OR. If you're willing, I'll hold yours. I could sure use your holding mine too!

Hold on

Hi Kathy,
Hang in there.... I know how emotional things can get and that our families tend to take the brunt end of it all but that is what families do best..... they can take all our "stuff" and love us anyway... soon you will be on the road to recovery and life will once again return to its normal craziness... and about moving your mom and dad... its hard but maybe you can pick up the phone and talk... when my daughter moved to DC a year ago she got a cell phone with a great long distance plan and we talk a couple of times a week. maybe you can look into that in the next few days or after your surgery while recouperating... You are in my prayers...
