Sad and anxious

Last night my Mom had a seizure and is in the hospital. Not sure how much more stress I can take😥. It's one thing after another. How am I supposed to be calm and deal with anxiety/depression when bad things keep happening??? I know it's how I react but I can't force myself to be calm and not anxious. And now I ate a whole bunch of junk and feel sick. This weekend was supposed to be vacation but it's not 😥

  • Ugh! Sorry about your mom.

    I know it's SOOO hard!!! But you can do it! One thing at a time. I hope your weekend turns around.

  • Oh my gosh, I hope your mom will be okay soon. I understand what you are saying when you are already stressed to the max. It' very difficult to get yourself together and remain calm. I realize reaching for junk food isn't the answer but I've done it myself when life seems to get out of control. Please take care of yourself so that you can be there for your mom when she gets home. I will keep you in my thoughts. xxx

  • So sorry about your mom. Just try and keep positive and we are praying that she will be safe. I hope you have good friends and family around to help get you through this hard time.

  • Hi

    I just want to say I'm sorry about your mum but I completely understand how you feel. I too am worrying sick about my mum, she was rushed to hospital by paramedics on Monday as she was vomiting blood and they found a blockage in her bowell. She had to have a 6 hr emergency op to save her and she has been really unwell since. I have been driving up to see her at the hospital every night since and my children one at a time have been coming with me but I don't know how much more stress I can handle. I feel so upset and I don't know who to turn to. I have recently started back at work after maternity and sick leave and they wouldn't let me go home on the day of my mums op. I cried all day I was sick with worry. Now she isn't getting better and she is on all sorts of drips and machines it is scary. I'm trying to be strong for my children as they are upset seeing nanny like that but who do I turn to? My husband has been carrying on with someone at his work and I only found out this week when I got back from hospital at 10pm and she phoned him asking him to go and see her. I was horrified. We have a 7 yr old a 5 yr old and a 1 yr old baby. I just can't believe what is happening to me. Sorry to go on as this is your post but I just needed to vent.

    I really wish the best for your mum from the bottom of my heart.

    Take care

  • Oh sweetie I am so sorry 😥 Even though I'm going through stuff I'm still here to listen to you. Just been through a lot with my Dad which is a long story so I won't get into it. And lots of other stuff. I am praying for you dear. Love and hugs 💛 You can vent to me anytime!!


  • Sorry to hear about what happened but you have to relax and I know it's not easy but look as long as your mom is okay that's all that matters but don't let the issues get to you much, being calm and positive is the best way to help anyone

  • Thanks Alan I've been doing my best to stay calm even though it's not easy. My Mom is ok I hope she can go home today
