Last week was probably one of the worst weeks I have had in a long time. For once it wasn't directly linked to my depression but I wanted to stop the world and get off. I spent many an hour in tears, I was calling hubby in hysterics and was dangerously close to punching a certain person for betraying me. On top of that I wasn't sleeping well, either because I was tossing and turning all night or because the children were keeping me up.
I'm not just stressed. I'm homicidal.
Hubby asked earlier "What can I do to take away the stress?"
At the risk of sounding all 'me, me me', in an ideal world I'd love to have...
- A holiday.
- A weekend away. Alone. To sleep properly, go to the theatre, to aimlessly wander around London.....
- No school runs and racing around from one place to the next for a week or two.
- Spa day, failing that a daily full body massage.
- A day or two at home to rest, read, watch tv and relax.
Sadly, none of these are likely to happen.
If you really needed to de-stress what would you want to do?
