I think if most people are honest you'll find that everyone "loses it" to some degree on occasion. Whether it's money, family, work, everyone has challenges to deal with. I have no problem with saying that although I work really hard at keeping it together, there have been times when there was more than I thought I could handle.
When my boys were little the economy was bad here in Ca., my husband worked in aerospace & was laid off for months, we'd just bought a house, my ex was taking us to court, there was no money in the bank, I had 3 little boys at home, & the middle 1 had some special challenges. I had no family to help out, & I can remember 1 day just sinking down on the kitchen floor & crying. I thought about how it would feel to just walk out the front door, & leave all of my problems behind.
I didn't do it.I cried, then got up & did what I had to do to keep things going, things have gotten better, good friends help
