Emotional Wall

Just lately I have been feeling like I have hit an emotional brick wall. I dont really know where the feelings have come from or even stemmed from. I just dont feel that I am moving on I feel as though I am stuck fast in the same spot as the world is whizzing by me.

I find that since the strokes I cant cope with much even the smallest worries seem to be like massive mountains ( which of course there not). Then there is the mountain of autism. Try as I May to get to the top to see the spectacular scenery I can never quite manage it as I am met with an avalanche of meltdowns or rocks falls of peoples ignorance. I always seem to hit the stumbling blocks and go crashing down to the bottom of the mountain.

Now I am very tired and weary I feel as though I cant carry on. Yet somehow I manage to get through another day another week. I still feel very angry at life for my strokes that have robbed me of life as I knew it. Its now finding different ways to do the simplest tasks thats getting me down.

It feels as though I have lost my fight and spark and that I am trapped in this old persons body. The one that is unable to walk to the park just 5 minutes away or climb the stairs without feeling as though I have run a marathon. One thing that really upsets me is some days I cant be there for the children as I cant cope with the noise meltdowns. My patience and tolerance have all disappeared and I am like Mount Edna who is ready to erupt at any time.

My zest for life has disappeared and seemingly gone forever. The only positive I can see about having a stroke is I get to watch a film again and again because to me its as though I am watching them for the first time.

  1. Im thinking of you Wendy. xxx
    Although my health is OK (at the moment – Im knocking on the wood) I feel like everything around me is going different ways and they all want me to be there for them at the same time. To be honest – its just too much for me too…

    I hope the sun will come out for us too…

    • Hi thank you for your comment Sarah.

      No I was meant to see a counsellor but it never happened. I thought I was dealing with my strokes but obviously not as well as I thought xx

  2. Any idea when you May have your cardiac problems sorted? Thought you were waiting for a cardiac op soon (or is that me getting in a muddle?)

    I cant believe that you are not getting more help round the house. It must make life so difficult for both of you.

    You take care (((HUGS)))

      I am still waiting for the heart op.

      I feel sorry for hubs he has so much on his plate at times. We were referred for help but nothing ever came of it.
