Rough Times

My daughter is depressed and trying to accceot help- finally. She was recently raped and making things harder in all aspects. Family therapy tapped into something really touchy between my husband and I and we really aren't speaking right now. I have a younger daughter who is trying to be very grown up and strong but I worry she feels left out. Work is strained, I tried not to bring any of my problems to work but was called to talk to both bosses yesterday stating my negative attitude was getting to everyone. I explained my situation and had a meltdown in their office. I have no friends I have shared this info with as I'm always seen as the go to gal and I can get everything done. But right now- I can't and don't want to do anything but cry and curl up into myself.

Thanks for the understanding- things are looking better today. My bosses are on vacation next week so that's an opening for me to let everyone know I am having a difficult time and it's not them it 's me and I mean nothing personal when I'm snippy.<br />

I am having a similar experience at work right now- it is scary for me! I want to be able to go to work and not have my personal struggles impact my performance but I've already been told by my boss that it IS impacting my performance.... I hope you will allow yourself to curl up and cry. I hope you find people who can love and accept the whole you, not just the strong go to superwoman but also the vulnerable sad person who needs support. Hang in there. I hope your duaghter gets the help she needs too. Rape is a horrific expeerience.
