Sometimes it's an avalanche....

Sometimes the avalanche is real... when multiple stressors, traumas and potential losses pile on, sometimes within minutes. Here is what is on my plate right now:

๐Ÿ’ฅ One friend fighting for his life with messed up kidneys, sepsis and on a ventilator for a week

๐Ÿ’ฅ My elderly cat stopped eating this morning - he is at the vet, trying to see if we have hit the wall

๐Ÿ’ฅ One friend had a serious heart attack last night, needed emergency surgery and is in ICU

๐Ÿ’ฅ Oldest friends' husband in hospital, may need gall bladder out, in serious pain

๐Ÿ’ฅ Friend of 40 years did have her gall bladder out last week, but still can't eat right and is now in congestive heart failure

I know some of you can relate to this - here are five things I am doing to manage and muddle through this:

๐ŸŒท Making sure I am hydrating and eating

๐ŸŒท I did a physical chore that let me eat up all the nervous energy

๐ŸŒท Taking slow deep breaths

๐ŸŒท Find something that I CAN do something about - a lot of this involves waiting, but I can't just sit here.... I have clients who need me tomorrow

๐ŸŒท Reaching out for support - venting and sharing and raging and receiving

Sometimes it all comes at once - going a minute at a time, taking care of my home and family - staying aware - releasing when I need to - and being careful not to hurt myself, so I don't add to the chaos. Breathing....
