Overwhelmed

Just a quick post to tell you all that I am totally and completely overwhelmed by the number of things that need to be done in the near future. I am working on writing 2 papers for an incomplete I opted for in one of my classes last semester. I have 6 clients in my clinic class, instead of the usual 2 or 3. I am working 10 more hours a week at the wine shop because a colleague is out with a serious illness. I have a presentation to make on prison mental health care (a sad story for another time). I am preparing for graduation in May. And, I am trying to get ready for Curry to come in June (God help me if she comes earlier). I could go on, but I think you are getting the gist of it.

Plus, while procrastinating all of this stuff, I surfed to a blog where a woman described losing her fetus at 36 weeks (go see Serenity's blog for the link as well as her own happy news). I am still in mourning for this couple. And as a result, I relentlessly poke and agitate Curry to get her to move and show me that her heart is still beating.

Been wondering were you were. Hope things become less busy soon.

Yeah, I get being worried about that couple. I'm the same way right now. I almost have to not look at some posts and some blogs because they make me so paranoid now.

If I poke this baby anymore, its going to have a fingerprint on it's forehead when it's born!

I am glad you are doing well, but is there anything you could do to cut back? Maybe transfer some of the clients to others? Just because, you need to slow down a bit at some point, hon.

Take care.

Nice to hear form you! I hope you're able to find an occasional moment to relax.

The things we learn through infertility are terrifying, and though the odds really are (way) in your favor at this stage, I get not being able to put the knowledge that there are no guarantees out of your head. I'm sorry. You're almost certainly already aware of this option, but in case the poking gets old there is the option of renting or buying a doppler. I bought one on ebay for about $100 and used it every single day (less after quickening provided he obliged...) to reassure myself.

Barbara said...

Life sounds busy for you. Slow down, the last trimester is tiring.

Just take it one thing at a time, make a list if it helps! Don't look at it all at once!!!! Good luck!

Julia said...

Wow-- that is not a light load. Only a few weeks to graduation, though. Woohoo!
I hope we hear from you a bit more often after that.

i guess a spa weekend would be out of the question?

Electronic Goose said...

Yikes. Sounds like you could use a good, long nap. Here's hoping for one to come your way soon ...

Dream Writer said...

Well, you sound like a mom! As your months of pregnancy progress, the baby (fetus) is bigger and it is harder to feel them move because there is no room to move :)

You sound busy and take one day at a time. Things will work itself out.

Most of you know me as “Dreamwriter.” I recently
Launched a new blog called, “Bipolar Speaks.” One day something came over me as I was reading websites called “Post Secret” and also a blog who had a post where they had quotes from other Bloggers with mental illness about how they felt.

It occurred to me that WE need an escape to let out our feelings and frustrations. I know that a lot of bloggers say what they feel within their own blogs, but you are welcome to share your thoughts, opinions, and feelings.

You are welcome to help raise awareness and put a stop to the Stigma that lies within mental illness. We can change the world - one story at a time.

I thought it would be interesting
To design a “Safe Haven” for those who battle with a Mental Illness; and allow them to come and let out their most darkest, painful, and emotional feelings. This would be a great way to spread awareness by letting society know what is REAL about mental illness.

If you are interested, you can submit a story or short piece as an “Anonymous” contributor, or if you don‘t care about what others think, then feel free to reveal your blogger identity; its purely up to you.. I tried this several times and the “Anonymous” button works and ends up in my email as an “Anonymous” comment.

The rules and regulations are in the blog within a post. Take the time to read them thoroughly and I hope that you become a constant contributor.

Remember, we all have things on our chest to let out and we all truly don’t want others to know. But now is an opportunity for YOU to speak up, speak out, and be heard!

I know that I have a lot of feelings and issues that I don’t want my husband, friends, or family to know about…this is my chance to get it off my chest and I WILL be a constant contributor.

Depending on the issue, I might submit the story under both “anonymous” and my name.
Go to “Bipolar Speaks” and look around, don’t forget to display the Bipolar Speaks button on your blog and link it back to us.

By the way, I still have my other blog, so don’t forget about me over there, too. :)
