      My biggest stressors are that my doctors are struggling to figure out why every system in my body is going haywire, I'm getting sicker over time and my mental health issues and treatment have caused major impulsivity problems.

        @booklover3 This is hard for me to admit because I've been keeping it a secret that I'm in credit card debt. Probably more than I'm able to pay. Since starting a new psych med a while back, I've had impulse control issues. Might need to switch to another medication if my therapist and I can't get my impulsivity under control. I also should be telling my partner and asking for help but I'm seriously ashamed of myself. I'm trying to handle it on my own.

      New things and new places... Like 20 things needing to be done in the next however many minutes... And just in general having too many different things needing to be done, Phone calls, appointments, kid, animals, car, work, school... it never ends I never have time off there's always stuff that needs done or stuff in putting off our can't do because it's the weekend or a holiday. With that in mind weekends and holidays also are very stressful in many different ways on their own. Organization 😖😱🤯 is soo difficult for me to put away clothes or dishes. It stresses me out so bad I get a migraine just thinking about it. Oh almost forgot about my main thing. Well kinda it gives me panic attacks, or I think. Driving, especially tunnels and bridges. And I live in Pittsburgh yall 🤣

      The mess. I live with 7 people and two dogs. I'm the only one cleaning and the only one in constant pain. I'm pretty sure they are only partially related. When I say something about it they all remind me of that one time that they did that one thing recently [3-5 years ago] which only increases the stresses. But if I don't clean they still won't clean and my anxiety, allergies and asthma can't handle that at all.

      • GooseMcDweeb

        457d

        @LadyBrownharth if any of those seven people are non-dependent adults then it's entirely reasonable to place boundaries for yourself before you end up completely burnt out. Some people live apart from their loved ones because it is the only way to be able to meet their own needs. If your needs are consistently unmet, perhaps look at the possibility of other living situations and their impact on your wellbeing.
