More Stress Than I Can Manage

 

Question:

 

 

Over the last four weeks I have had some major things to deal with.  My god-daughter was born and had to go straight into NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit).  Then my sister’s baby was born and also had to go straight into NICU. I got a severe allergic reaction – I still don’t know the cause.  Just after that I discovered that my mom has got skin cancer.  And yesterday I had another severe allergic reaction and now I need to have tests done.

 

I have never coped well with stress, and this is just too much for me.   As a result my home looks like a disaster area.  My grocery shopping is behind.  I have missed days at work, and I really care about my job.  I have not exercised in weeks – and I love my exercise.  I have started to snap at people for the simplest reasons.

 

What can I do to reduce my stress, or just to relax?

My Head Is Going to Explode

 

Question

My father passed away just over a year ago and I am struggling to accept this.  My sister and I had to place our mother in care because of my mother’s medical problems. 

I live on my own and have many lovely and caring friends, but even so I often find myself feeling lonely and tearful.

 

I have problems sleeping and often lie awake thinking very dark and scary thoughts.

 

Sports have always helped me to cope, but I am struggling with recent injuries that are taking long to heal.

 

I have also lost my job on two occasions and because things are so quiet at work at the moment, I am worried that it will happen again.
