Venting is normal, necessary, releases toxins - High Five on that one!
How about crying? I probably have not had a day go by, where I break down due to frustration, anger, "why me!?", and how come all those people who tell me they will help, are nowhere to be found! I have almost begged some folks for assistance. ADD to this dilemma - my mother is a pathological hoarder. And unfortunately, since her mind isn't motivated to do anything, she stays home. While I have moved in with her (she thinks I'm only visiting)...she is now in the hospital due to neglect of her teeth, which led to her getting bacteria in her knee replacements. (ahhhh, there is a blessing to this story). She is now in Rehab for two weeks - while I frantically try to figure out how to clear a room, so I can put a bed in there, and begin living normally among the crazies. I have done all I can to get assistance - doctors, social workers, nurses, friends....and on the percentage scale - have probably gotten about 10% to help me.
I have to say, I'm pissed off that there is limited assistance - limited time to do something that can help me function normally - more red tape than I can handle - and I'm so getting overwhelmed, I can't even begin to think where to get help, than from those Professionals I've already asked help from.
