misery guts monday

Things are not good here people.

Last night my Dad (in a drunken stupor) walked out on my Mam and brother. He went missing for several hours and didn't get in til 1am. Still drunk. It wasn't pretty. I was up making calls trying to coax him home and comforting my Mam and my brother. Bah. It is hard to help over the phone but I did my best. Needless to say today, coupled with mighty period pain, I am tired and grumpy and just plain all over the place.

I have slept on and off all day and haven't eaten anything sensible. Snack snack snack. I have zero energy and feel uber miserable. I am glad that I don't really have anything to binge on and that the local chinese doesn't deliver and I don't have the energy to walk there.

I don't know how the situation is at home right now. I know I can't afford to go up there but I can't stop thinking about them.

They were supposed to visit me today too.

BAH.

No stress quite like family stress. Hope it all works out, girl. I know that can take its toll on you.

Oh, no! I hope he feels quite silly today. Shame you didn't get to see them though.

It is difficult to deal with while you are so far away, but they are grown-ups (or are meant to be) so they will have to sort it out for themselves.

Meantime, take care of yourself.

(((hugs)))

About 15 days ago I purchased a supplement to help my hormones. It's all natural & organic. Mayhaps it'd be worth looking into something for your hormone issues?

It's really starting to help. It doesn't do much for drunken family, however. Get some play dough or something and smack it at a wall. :)

I have delt with a difficult father in the past. It's such an akward situation... being in the middle of it.

If I can say anything useful, well what I've been saying to myself as I get stressed and slapped around by the world... Food won't fix it. Sure it will sedate and medicate me a bit but in the end it's going to mess me up.

I guess it's like drinking is, in a way? I don't drink but I guess for a short time maybe that for them sort of puts a tarp over the mess for a bit. Yet when life gets uncovered it's even more of a mess.

I tried to love my dad in a Christian sense, but I honestly hated him. I guess he struggled with things too, just in a different way. My prayers for you and your family.

At Foolsfitness hugging stuffed animals is encouraged.- Alan

Oh suck! I'm sorry, it's hard to live so far away. Good job keeping your house clean of junk. Sorry!

Sorry you're having to go through such stress with your family!
Sometimes trying to work through family stress is harder than anything else :( Hope it gets worked out soon.

I hope today sees improvement with the situation at your family home. You may not live there, but sometimes I think that may make it even more stressful for you.
