:: overwhelmed ::
today i'm seeking some advice.
i read a quote on twitter recently by erica jong about advice. she said, "advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't."
usually i think this is pretty right on. often i think we do ask for advice to confirm what we're not ready to admit yet.
but today i seek answers i don't have.
you see, i'm struggling a bit this week. evan got a stomach bug, which is super traumatic for me for some reason and has been ever since i was a kid. and brian was out of town for it, which made it harder, although we're still at my mom's and she was amazing. and tuesday night i didn't get any sleep. literally.
but then yesterday we found out that we'll be closing on the maybe house on monday morning at 9:30 in the morning. so we'll be moving next week. out of my mom's house (we've been here almost exactly 8 months) and into our own about 18.2 miles away.
and man oh man am i having trouble processing all of this. i'm tired and emotional and basically a big old mess.
can you help me? how do you deal with the perfect storm of emotional trauma? how do you keep it together when your life suddenly seems scary and overwhelming?
