I'm not sure what it is, but a lot of the time I feel like I'm walking around in a fog. I forget things, I misplace things, I say things and later don't recall saying them. This makes me lose it. I easyily get frustrated with myself, and it takes patience on my husband's part. Other times, I'm pretty much on the ball.
OMG yes! I have 2 toddlers (almost 3 and 14 months), I am presently studying as well as trying to get my business up and running. My partner works nights. My children don't really appreciate the therapeutic benefits of a good night's sleep. And I have limited support. I find myself regularly "losing the plot" and just wondering how on earth I'm going to get it back again. I had a minor breakdown the other night where I actually considered calling my trainer and just cancelling my studies and shutting up my business. But I had a long shower and realised that there a re so many people out there who would so happy to see me quit / fail (including my parents!) so I resolved to keep going just so I can say "I did it!!" I have re-adjusted my expectations of myself and my family and now that I'm not actually expecting any support or help I feel much better. I'm thinking of hiring a housekeeper / nanny for one day a week, but we'll see.
When things are not going as I have planned, I really tend to lose it and my frustration comes out in form of anger and mostly towards the people who are close to me. More recently, I try to think of the worst that can happen if things don't go as planned and when I look at the bigger picture, whatever is making me upset seems negligible and my anger dissipates.
My car kept breaking down and had to be towed twice in a week (and one time was 8 hours out of town so it required me to train it home with kids in tow and then go back the next day) and it spent a week in the shop only to break down second day back on the road. That moment I felt like I was totally losing it!! Car fixed and life back to normal fixed it all...thankfully! ;)
