Total description of how I am feeling. I am just up for a few minutes, then I will lay down again. Too much of too many things. Those who pray please pray for me. I promise I will be back active here sometime. Maybe by next month.

Feeling the same way. I don't think I slept a wink last night. I'm just working so hard on trying to straighten out the finances, and now hubby's switching jobs and I have to pay another babysitter for before school.

I hope overall it is a good job change. He had been looking a long time, right?

@GardenGerty He has been looking for a very long time. The pay should be about the same. He took it because he'll work fewer hours, be home earlier, and the work is easier on him emotionally and mentally. But with a job change comes so much to deal with like we'll lose our health insurance because it's through his job and the hours may fluctuate between 46-55... so it's really a lot of what ifs right now. We won't know until he's actually been working it for awhile as to whether it's better or not.

All of this moving business finally catching up to you? I hope you can take some time for yourself to enjoy the weather before it turns more cold and just relax for awhile. I had some anxiety issues the other day, my chest was tight and I just didnt' feel as if I could sleep. It passed after awhile and I slept but I still feel the stress today.

I saw that on facebook, hope you are doing better now. I know that my anxiety is part of my fibro but I also got overheated yesterday and I am trying to hold the whole world together. It will not happen. I will also say that the place I am moving out of is much as you have described your house. I just do not know how to turn loose of things.

@GardenGerty It's easy to get attached to things, and also to keep things you feel sure you'll use even if you haven't in years. My aunt suffers from Fibro and so I know that it can take it's toll on a person. I am not sure if it flares when faced with anxiety or not but I can't see how anxiety would help. I know you are pretty good with systems so perhaps you can devise a system to help you get through the final stresses of the moving process.

I am sorry to hear that you are feeling so poorly. We do miss you, but your health comes first, so you just take it easy and come back when you can. We will all be here when you come back.

@GardenGerty That is really a shame that your friends are in bad shape. I have never had anxiety, and I hope I never do either. I do have other problems though, like a back that hurts mots days, so I don't need anything else on top of it.

I will look for you when you come back. Try to relax and do not stress too much. The worst is almost over.

I probably have had too much heat. Things will get better and having friends to sound off to helps.

We will all be looking forward to you visiting again. Hopefully it will be quite soon because that would suggest that you were freeling well again.

Barry you are really sweet. Daylight is going to help. I got too hot yesterday and stressed as well. The sun is now coming up and I can get busy.

You've got a bit going on right now, so it's understandable. We'll be around when you get things back to 'normal'.

I always know that if I get up in the middle of the night I can at least tell you "good morning"
