Emotionally drained ~Jekka~ TTC since Oct 2012; 2 kids; Australia 8649 posts28th Nov '12
I know when I'm physically drained, if I have a nice long bath, and get some sleep, I feel better. But I've never before felt so emotionally drained, and I have no idea how to bounce back. The past couple of weeks have just drained me so much. My sister had her baby, my Nana passed away, all my family flew in to the state for the funeral, some of them I haven't seen in years. I had to watch my pop bury his wife of 60+ years, on his birthday. My birthday was the day after the funeral (I ignored it, as did almost everyone else, no presents or cake) I found out I have some sort of growth in my uterus, so i can't conceive until it's removed. My ex got engaged... again (something that shouldn't bother me, but it does) I know it's all just life, but I just feel so drained. Like all I want to do is climb in to bed and stay there for a year. I've spent 2 weeks crying, and now I just feel empty. I just want to bounce back and feel good again. How can I do this? I get every Thursday to myself, and as soon as I drop the girls off at school and care, i climb back in to bed and stay there until pick up time. So it's not rest I need... I get plenty of that. What can I do to feel better?
