Life's Daily Frustrations
irenefr posted:
I KNOW I am supposed to be grateful for what I have. And I try to be. I write gratitude lists. I read inspirational books. I do "random acts of kindness". And, yet, just getting through the day with daily life's frustrations can be so hard for me. I know that other people have the frustration of the yard man not showing up... or worries about money, etc.... or the car needs washing...or the car needs brakes... But, for me, it feels overwhelming. And I know all the "right" things to do...break it down to what has to be done, use a dbt skill, call a supportive friend. But, honestly, folks I am just tired of living. I wish God would be kind and take me in a car crash... then it would be over. And this has been one of my better weeks. I really don't feel like I have anything to look forward to. But I don't want to discourage others... This too shall pass... I am just feeling frustrated.

My story would take too long. But I've suffered from severe depression most of my life. I also have epilepsy, but it's under control w/meds.
