I am really glad that I am able to help my children when they need me. It also is an emotional strain. The helping isn't the strain but rather the situation--illness, injury, surgery. Emotional strain and fatigue lead to depression when I get home. I know the routine. Once the roller coaster gets to the first drop there is no stopping until the end, unless it all crashes.
I refuse to crash.
I know you aren't the people to deal with my mental help. I am doing the professional help part-- medication, counseling. I am not so good at the self care at the moment.
You all are the friends I feel closest too right now. I have always said that I can be very good at being friendly, just not so good at friendship.
I know this will pass. It just takes some time.
