Stressful Week

I realized I haven’t posted since last Saturday. This week has been so busy and stressful. And it’s only Wednesday! I am thankful that I am on vacation after today and will have a relaxing long weekend with my family. We have dealt with issues with our newly used car we just bought, a car wreck with my pregnant daughter, and trying to get everything ready for our vacation. Needless to say, I have let my workouts slip for the past two days since I have been so overwhelmed. I’m looking forward to a running workout tonight when I get home.

Luckily, my daughter is o.k. from her wreck and even though she was transported to the hospital, the baby is fine also. The car on the other hand will need some repair work. I was excited though to see the ultrasound performed on her in the hospital. I was overwhelmed with tears of joy to see my grandchild for the first time.

It’s amazing to me how much stress can affect you physically. After dealing with the car accident yesterday and going to the hospital, I found myself very nervous and exhausted. I almost felt light headed and like it was difficult to breathe. Usually, I know how to calm down when I’m feeling overwhelmed, but yesterday was a different story. Eventually I was able to relax after drinking a glass of vino and playing with Tiger.

How do you deal with stress?

One thought on “Stressful Week

  1. I'm glad everyone is okay and I can see how that is a very stressful situation. Your body probably had a big shock and the adrenaline that our body produces when that happens takes a while to settle down. You were caring for yourself in an important way when you had a glass of wine and played with your cat!
