Overwhelmed & out of control
Jamilynn06 posted:
Oh god...I am feeling so overwhelmed there is so much to do. It is taking everything within me just to sit on the couch & chill out for a minute. I've broken into tears wondering why I have to be this way...I feel so out of control over my emotions this afternoon. I'm to the point to where I'm shaking. I can't focus on one thought. While doing laundry earlier, I couldn't focus on the task, but all the other things needing to be done where running through my head. I hate being like this...

Try to take a few deep breaths, and a long, hot bath. The water sometimes helps me when I'm manicky and out of sorts, helps to slow things down and ease the jitters.
