I don't even know if this question is going to make sense.... Do any of you ladies get completely overwhelmed by the basics of taking care of a household and a body?
I had a panic attack that started with the week's cooking on Friday and has escalated exponentially over the past 2 days. Caring for the house, the car, and keeping up with all the cooking that goes along with my special diet is literally more than I can handle sometimes. (I have a rectal ulcer that is sensitive to multiple foods--so little to no eating out or packaged meals.)
I feel like I can't make time to take care of my body beyond the basics of eating and washing my face.
This feeling of complete and utter overwhelm reduces me to tears and I feel like I am never going to be able to outrun my racing heart.
I do not feel this way ever at work. Now, I don't love all the work at my job. But I never feel like this "I am going to die of panic" feeling like I do when I can't scrub out the stains from the tub or when I have too many kitchen appliances going. Or when I just can't make 3 minutes to put some lotion in my dry skin though my hands are bleeding.
What is happening to me?
This feeling started with peri about 4 years ago and just gets worse and worse each month. I can't stop crying today.
