Feeling Low and trapped...

Well after my awful week with my brother which I coped with quite well at the time, its really knocked me now. I felt like I was starting to feel more positive on my road of getting over my ex/ picking up the pieces of my life after giving up my job and moving further up north...... but this has pulled the rug from under my feet.

I feel like Im walking on eggshells around him... I don't feel like I can do what I want to do..... He threw quite a lot of crap at me and all my family on facebook, and I can rationalise that hes very unhappy with himself and that's why hes lashed out...... but Im really struggling now and Im worried about my future.....

Yeah so so I guess.

You've done mega well by the way, I know what brothers can be like, mines has been the apple of my mums eye for years and was always really sneaky we were younger, would do things and blame it on me. We get on better now he has moved out but I never forget it lol xx

Hiya,

I'm sorry to hear you are having an awful week with your brother. I know it can be a struggle coping with anxiety and a toxic family member. My mother has a toxic personality too, and there are days, like today, that really, jumping out a window or just packing my bags and disappearing seems like such a good idea.

Hang in there, and keep posting here when you need to vent or just share. We're all here for you.

thank you for your reply, it does help to know people understand and have the same problems, I always question how I am or how I could have done something different, but don't think I could in this situ, but it still hits hard, xxx

I understand. I agree its oftentimes really difficult knowing if you could have done something to avoid it, or if its inevitable. You start to doubt yourself.

I wish there was a place, a nice calm peaceful place, we can go to recharge, and we never have to leave if we didn't want to. We could just stay there and forget about the world.
