This past weekend was kinda yucky. We were trying to figure out the thickener for LM’s bottles and it was stressing us out. When I get stressed I get short tempered. Because of this, most of the weekend through monday was spent bickering with my husband. Neither of us enjoyed it.
We finally talked and made up last night. What we realized is that I do alot – take care of LM first thing in the morning (I get up at 5am week days) and in the afternoons, put together all his meals, work 30 hours a week, interface with all his teachers/therapists, and do most of the planning. When something stresses me out I don’t have an outlet to de-stress.
I mostly just sit on the internet and read blogs/twitter and watch tv. I don’t have many friends nearby. I need somewhere to channel my stress instead of at my husband. I was walking, but I mainly do it on my lunch break because I am tired when I get home. I am not athletic or crafty. Maybe I just need to write more about my feelings in here than just stuff about LM. Anyone have any good ideas to de-stress and give me an outlet of my own?
