Whoooo boy

I should probably just shut my bedroom door and separate myself from ... the world today.

I'm not nice.

Not therapeutic.

Silly yes ... but with some serious sarcasm.

Oh my, how I do adore sarcasm. It makes me happy. Sarcasm and coffee - twice as nice.

I have joined a battle and then pulled myself out of it no less than 27 times today (maybe more like 702,021 - yes, that feels much more accurate).

This past month has been a perfect storm with the issues we juggle in our family. Lots of triggers. Lots of added stress that cannot be avoided. Plenty of regular stuff. Lots of new experiences. And Mom leaves again tomorrow for several days.

Not. long. enough.

Pretty sure everyone concurs.

I'm right there with you. I seem to be having more I'm not nice days lately. Guess that is what happens when you have been 'trying' to do this non-stop for 2.5 years without having more than 2 hours away from it. Sigh.

How on earth did you manage to get a picture of you and I togehter? I'm SO there with you, friend. So there. So ready to run away on a vacation of my own. I really need a good brush up on the therapuetic thing. My kids are ramping up all the crazies in the book with the combination of new meds and birthday/traumaversary/mother's day season now upon us. I'm falling back into old ways that so do not work and I'm so sick of the nonsense!!! Enjoy the conference!! SOOOO wish I could be there, too.

I ... I will survive.

And hopefully, so will the rest of them. :)

I can't believe I'm finally posting after reading and watching your blog for years!! I'm am so there.....dealing with an 18 year old that continues the attachment/trauma cycle after being adopted 9 years ago. I'm so not nice right now....I just want to bury myself in some warm sand on a deserted beach!

I just want to know my kid will be okay (just blogged about that). Heck, I want to know if I will be okay! Throw in my birthday, wedding plans for sister, brother graduating, dad very sick. Yup, the perfect storm. No rages, just complete and total emptiness.

You're an amazing mom. And will be even more amazing when you get back home. Enjoy!

You get to see ME! :)

Oh we are dealing with some doozies with the eldest right now. Oy!

Birthday boy is rockin' it out.

I'm glad you wrote that, because I've been whacking myself about how NOT like you I am. I've been detaching myself for months, and I only just a few days ago started pulling myself out. It's SO HARD to not be sarcastic, negative, or critical. In fact, not being those things is leaving me with nothing left to say.
