I feel so lost and confused

I’m preparing to move to a new apartment after being with my husband for 24 years. I feel so immobilized like I can’t pack a thing. Also because I’m a full time teacher and I use that term loosely now because I’m with a co teacher who I’ve had problems with. I don’t know what happened I felt so vital and full of life and now my sleep is off everything is off.

Hi 👋 It’s Shnookie. It’s understandable why everything is off. U have huge changes that R occurring in your life. The end of your marriage after 24 yours and an uncomfortable working relationship.

Hello. In some ways I relate very much to your situation. It sounds really rough. My mom was a teacher too. I am well aware of the challenges and difficulties and sacrifices teachers make every day. And you definitely should be getting paid more for what you do and for dealing with students who think it’s a fun thing to harass the teacher and blow off doing their homework. I’m so sorry that you’ve stood by your husband for so long and that you’re going through a divorce now. It doesn’t sound like you have any children together. Maybe that’s the silver lining inside this cloud, at least you don’t have to get into a vicious divorce battle over custody of the children and how much anyone pays for child support. I know it still hurts. I don’t have any children myself because I simply couldn’t afford to have them.

May be stress, I find it demotivates me.

Cheers, Midori

Could be - when I’m so overwhelmed and have so many things - I could end up doing nothing. Today I read some inspirational words and took a walk. It’s a beginning!
