Too much on my plate

As if having up coming surgery is not enough to deal with emotionally, I am also up for a promotion so spent last week writing personal statement, trying to wrote school reports, finishing off some study...but to top it off..... My nearly 7 month old puppy has decided she wants to be the dominant member of the dog pack and has taken to being aggressive with my other two dogs.

All I can think about is how the heck am I going to cope with all of this?????

Anyone else finding life to be just a tad more stressful than usual? Maybe I am just too emotional. *sigh*

Re: Too much on my plate

OMG, I am not alone!! Talk about stressing!! I have surgery on Thursday, 12/1, and my Mom was rushed to the hospital last Sunday with pheumonia. She was pretty sick and spent a few days in the ICU. I found myself asking the same questions, why now and what else can happen?? Like I need more stress right now but what can I do?? She is doing a lot better and out of the ICU. They are going to be moving her to a rehab so she can gain her strength. At least worrying about her has taken my nerves and anxiety off of my surgery. So stressed out I am but I think we need to take one day at a time. That is all we can do. Hang in there, if you want to chat let me know. Good luck to you!!

Re: Too much on my plate

Ah yes - the stress of our busy lives. I had my surgery 9 days ago but the activity leading up to it was just craziness.
Work obligations and family needs -
Flew from east coast to west coast to prep for upcoming presentations I was giving in front of 250 people (had not ever presented in front of a large crowd like this).
Home for a week with more prep and also trying to tie up loose ends knowing I would be out of the office for several weeks.
Flew to Miami for 4 days to give the presentations (turned out better than I anticipated - whew!)
Flew home Thursday, unpacked, repacked.
4 am Friday get ready to fly to Vancouver Island to celebrate my Mom's 80th on 11/11/11
Flew back home to N. VA on Tuesday
2 days in the office frantically doing all the last minute turn over
Friday 18th up at 5am for 7:30 am surgery.

I certainly feel for you. Good luck on the promotion and Best wishes for a successful surgery.
