Just feel kind of abandoned by some of my "friends" that used to call and/or give me a break from the house to go hang out for a while.. That is not me at all. Have always been sweet (almost too nice at times), naive and vulnerable. This is just not a good time of year and my folks are not doing so good. We need a break from each other and there is no one to depend on for a listening ear of to take a break with to be a friend. Am beating myself up, blaming myself and going a little stir crazy being stuck in the house for a month or two at a time. Just trying my best not to take it out on anyone else because it's not fair to them or me. Also having some health problems that are making it difficult to perform my caregiving duties and am having a hard time trying to adjust to. Not much I can do about it though. Maybe around the holidays in particular, there is a lot going on and having a hard time and feeling really lonely. I go from being grumpy and wanting to curse somebody out (even though I wouldn't really do it) and then want to cry my eyes out, but hold it in. Just feels like nobody gives a rat's ass sometimes. Never get a phone call to see if I'm doing ok or anything. It's just disheartening. Some people are just that self-centered and clueless. Don't like to put people down at all either, but my feelings are really hurt. Does anyone else go through this kind of crap or have any experience with helpful ways to work it out?
