Real life Tetris 

What is easier, training for a marathon or blogging about painful events in my life? In analysis, they both take approximately the same amount of time per week. I would say, without a doubt, that training for a marathon is much easier. I only feel tired and perhaps physically sore after running. I feel tired, sometimes upset, depressed, and emotionally sore after blogging. 

Is there anybody out there? Am I all alone? Where have the other siblings of the disabled gone? Have you escaped? Have I not? How can I? Why can’t I? I don’t want to do this anymore. It is too personal. The feelings are too raw. I am picking away at old poorly healed scabs. This worries me. 

I feel very overwhelmed in general. I was just notified of mandatory practices for my kids at school the next couple of weeks that conflict with other mandatory practices. When do I have time to work? What about work? We are picking up our biggest client ever the end of this week. It is great, but overwhelming. Will I be able to perform? Will I be able to handle the work? I feel like I am playing Tetris right now. Pieces falling haphazardly on other pieces and nothing fits. I am fighting to stay in control. I worry about the things I can’t control. Am I all alone?

  1. You are never alone! I feel like whenever I get overwhelmed I take a step back and remind myself of all I have accomplished! I’m sure your training is going as planned and your kids are healthy and love you. Know if you ever need something someone is always there! Don’t be afraid to lean on to others. Let me know if I can help in any way! 🙂

    • Thanks for the kind words. Marathon training and blogging have been difficult experiences. However, both have been very rewarding and I feel stronger because of it. Thanks again!
