It feels like my life is a train wreck.
The stress at my house seems out of control.
My dear old cat, Anika, is ill. I took her to the emergency vet yesterday because she was so obviously in pain. She has a urinary tract infection and probably a tumor in her bladder. We're treating her for the infection and providing comfort cares (pain meds and fluids). I don't want her to hurt. Once we got the pain under control, she seems happy and content. She knows that she's free to leave, no strings attached, whenever she's ready. She's a cat. Cats are pretty good at death.
I'm broke. Not broken, quite, but out of money. Quite. I got my entire month's worth of funds on Friday. It's not even Monday yet and the money is already gone. I paid our household's monthly bills, bought a few groceries, put gas in my car, and took the cat to the vet. Done. Until mid May. This sucks!
My house is a mess. I can't get on top of it. I try to narrow my focus to one small area or task. It doesn't help. I'm stuck in overwhelm and it's getting me nowhere.
I've had a migraine since Monday. Yup, you read that right. I've had this headache for a week now. Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night were particularly bad. Today has been a struggle but it's not been as bad as yesterday was. I'm STILL waiting on the results of the food allergy test. I feel like I'm out of options. All my doctors can do now is toss drugs at the pain. That helps, some. But only for a coupla hours. This is NOT what I signed up for!
It's spring! I should be happy. I'm not. I'm tired and crabby and I hurt. My family is stressed. Nothing seems to be going right. I need a break. Yup, it feels like a train wreck.
