Looking after ourselves

Re: Struggling with weekends

I hear you @Bb82 .

 

Big hugs for you. 

 

In the beginning, distraction is one of the best coping strategies. Over time, as you practise and become more efficient with other strategies, you'll hopefully be able to manage in a more healthy way.

 

Are you regularly working with a therapist at the moment?

Hi @Bb82 ,

 

Any plans for tomorrow as yet?

Re: Struggling with weekends

Thanks @tyme
No I the lovely therapist I was seeing retired some time ago. Unfortunately living in a country town makes seeing others rather difficult. There is a minimum 3 month wait to see one and then there is a huge gap to pay, which I just can't afford being a single parent with 3 kids.

Re: Struggling with weekends

After work today I went to yet another garden nursery and brought some more plants so I'm hoping the weather is decent enough for me to make a good start on the garden. Failing that my daughter's bedroom needs a good going through so will turn the music up and try to achieve that at very least. 

Re: Struggling with weekends

How did today go for you @Bb82 . I understand weekends are challenging for you, so i wanted to check in to make sure you are ok.

Re: Struggling with weekends

oh dear @Bb82 I know that feeling a little too well at the moment, let me start with the positive though I think your children are lucky to have you and you them at this time, but yes that feeling of Lonliness is never easy especially like you say wanting,needing someone to have a coffee with,have a chat too,spend time with ,Ive had a simular feeling of needing others company lately but for two or three days to no avail,so straight back home,under the bed covers watching movies or Lighting a candle,I think we all need to be reminded that one its ok to feel the way you do and two it can feel like something we cant conrtol,but your definetly not alone,companionship,longing for company wether it be friendships or romantic is both a beutifull yet sad part of being human,sad when that need isnt fullfilled,I hope that you have been focussing on self care and maybe spending time with friendship type groups first might help,just for somewhere you can talk and vent ect please take care LostAngel
