I’m really stressed out about December. There are so many things going on and I’m afraid I won’t be able to pull everything off.
Beginning this week, I have a sting of out of town doctors appointments I need to get both Lizze and Gavin to. The appointments are mostly Cleveland Clinic trips and there are ten of them before Christmas. These are expensive and the car is in rough shape. At the same time, the trips have to happen.
In between all that, we have to figure out Christmas, get a handle on Gavin’s aggressive behavior and still make it to all of our regular appointments. We have a total of 20 appointments all together before Christmas Eve. It’s incredibly overwhelming because I’m essentially the only driver in our family and so all of that falls on me.
I still have to squeeze work in and I have a couple new partnerships that require my attention as well.
There’s still a great deal of personal shit I’m still going through and I feel like I’m losing control of the situation.
I’m overwhelmed and just trying to hold everything together.
How did I miss this? Okay Monday I was out of it, had a pain flare and missed sleep. I hope you can find a way to reduce your stress. I’m fed up right now with doctors etc.
I’m in survival mode myself. Holidays will be low key. I’m probably not even putting up a tree. And my son with autism isn’t even the reason.
December can be a tough month. I’m working full time and need to get shopping done along with guardianship paperwork, county paperwork, SSI, doctor appointments, school stuff for two ASD kids that are adults as well as trying to get stuff done in the house. Hang in there and try to squeeze some time in this for yourself.
Hang in there. I find when I am overwhelmed just focus on the step. It helps me get through with my son.
I know the feeling I’m starting to stress too with my husband and son with the holidays.
