With two teens and the only child of parents who are starting to slip (just a tiny bit), I am feeling the squeeze….Teen issues, older parent issues (health).
Everyone needs something from me, even if it’s just to be a sounding board for their issue of the day. The pressure is all around, but I keep thinking I am fortunate to have both children and parents still in my life. The question is how do I keep from getting overwhelmed? Work is still going on. Bills are still coming in. This isn’t any different than anyone else’s life. My answers for coping so far are writing when I can, Netflix, phone a friend, a hot bath…what do you do when you feel the squeeze from everyone around you, even when you love them to pieces? Let me know….
