I am not in control
I just started taking estrogen and progesterone, for very bad hot flashes I am having at night. Its so bad that I no longer get a balanced sleep...how do I preform at work in a busy hospital setting...This is my stress#1.
Stress#2, my husband has ADHD and has not been able to hold down a job for more than 10 months at a time due to lack of concentration, and he refuses to take meds (even if he didn't refuse medication for his ADHD, we could not afford them now that I am taking my meds along with my vitamins monthly...a bill of about $70.00 a month).
#3 This leaves me the burden of all our finances...and I can't sleep at night resulting in not preforming at work.
#4 I too have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis and bursitis in both hips (a lot of pain) and most resently fibromyalgia, and I can't sleep because of the hot flashes and pain, but I have to work full time because my husband doesn't (I am 49 years old).
#5 My husband also has a (too) soft heart for animals and in our 6 year marriage he has brought 6 cats and a dog into our home! I told him at the onset of our marriage no more than 3 cats, and never a dog!...he has manipulated his way into us having these animals that we can't afford to feed, and some of them are not even neutered.
#6 My family stays away from our home because of his over baring personality, and I have no more friends to confide in.
My stress levels are already through the roof... I would like to clean the slate of animals and some times of my husband but that too involves a whole lot of stress... that I don't think I can bare?...I believe I Am beyond meditation and eating healthy.
What say ye???
