my stupid stunt

I have a daughter that has been sick for quite sometime. I have been the major one to
deal with this Right now we are waiting for her to see a specialist. This has been my whole focus since Jan of this year. Her Dad lives out of state. I have cI have someone that I talk to (guy) that I am beginning to have feelings for. Lately our conversations have gone to a more intimate level. This scares me because I have not been in a relationship for 7 years. Confused yet? Welcome to my world. All this came to a head yesterday when I went to a drive to release tension. I was going about 80 through curvy roads when I hit a corner and a bird flew in front of me. I almost wrecked. For a brief instance I didn't have a care in the world. I was free and I didn't care about anything. This feeling scares me. I am NOT suicidal. But that brief moment in time I had nor responsibilities. It felt good.
And I want to feel good again.

  • I think you need to find a support system. You have a lot of responsibility, and a lot going on in your life. I had a similar experience...(near death part) years ago. I wasn't suicidal either, but it was a wake-up call that the stress in my life was out of control.

    Find a support group, therapy, and friends that you can talk to ...and distract yourself with. Do something to take care of you as well as your daughter.

    Hugs...and good luck!

  • sometimes it takes something to shake up your perspective a little - sounds like you got caught off guard and escaped the trap you set for yourself where you feel guilty for allowing yourself to be happy when your child is suffering.
