Holy $π!+, my week has had me struggling. I went on a trip out of state with my sister's (now ex) boyfriend who made a horrible comment toward me on the first day (a 3-day trip). Due to the comment, my sister broke up with him after 6 months of being with him. When I came home, my mom told my dad that she wanted a divorce. Because of this, my dad attempted suicide. He coded in the ambulance and then had to be life flighted an hour away. I was supposed to have two interviews because I was fired from my job due to my mental health, but my case manager helped me change the date of them due to the situation. I was also just diagnosed with gastroparesis and have been trying to deal with that as well. Everything just has me so overwhelmed. Any recommendations as to how to make it through all this without completely falling apart?

    hi oh my god I'm so sorry that's so much so fast. if at all possible please take time for yourself to greive your father. that's something that will stick with you forever if you don't address it and can be managed. from there I'd recommend talking to people you're comfortable with about what you have going on so it doesn't shatter you when you have to go back to work. with gastreoperisis the best thing to to is see a doctor who can tell you more about your severity and what medical options you have which can ease the pain that comes with navigating things like that.. I'm sorry if my advice isn't perfect, I really hope things get better soon. if you need someone to talk to I'm available at any time wishing you the best ❤❤

    They were able to get him back thankfully. After he spends a few days under constant watch at the hospital and get everything back to normal, he's going to a psychiatric hospital for a while. It's been really hard to watch him try to recover from it. I'm honestly scared of going back to work at the moment due to everything happening. As for my gastroparesis, they are starting me on a liquid diet to see if it gets under control. Thank you for your kind words. 💛

    OH. MY. GOSH. That is SO MUCH to process. That is so so so terrifyingly scary!!! I am so sorry!! Do not lose your connection and communications with people. You need to continue to process this or your mind and body might try to shut you down. So always keep in touch with some sort of support system (Alike works!) You could also see if the app "Being" is helpful for you. I liked it.

    Cry it out. I've found that expressing all of your emotions best you can and without hurting yourself or others helps the process

      easier said than done. Right now I feel emotionally numb. I'm not sure why. I'm usually a very emotional person.

      We got to bring my dad home yesterday. They switched his depression medication and we're going to get him into counseling. My sister is missing her ex-boyfriend, but she also knows that she shouldn't go back to him. My parents are still separating, my mom is going to move in with my sister and me. A lot is happening all at once. Thank you for checking in. 💛
