Having trouble coping with life (vent) - UPDATED
Hey ladies, I feel like I'm having a really difficult time coping with my life lately. I haven't really felt like myself for a couple of years now, but lately things have just gotten really bad and I've been resorting to alcohol out of desperation, which is REALLY not like me.
In the last year I found out that my husband has dependent personality disorder, my son started early intervention, I was diagnosed with Aspergers, I had to quit doing freelance work (my dream) to take care of my son, my father passed away unexpectedly, my sister began physically abusing my recently widowed mother, and we made the decision to relocate and put our house on the market. It's been one thing after another, and there is no sign of the stress ending any time soon.
I've been seeing a therapist (behavioral), because I truly do *want* help, but he just let me a message the other day informing me that he's leaving the region and therefore cannot see me any longer. He wasn't incredibly helpful, but it was better than nothing.
I'm just kind of at my wits end. I'm already paying out of pocket for my son to go to a daycare program for 12 hours per week so that I can try to "get it together" during that time. It's been a lifesaver, but I'm still incredibly overwhelmed and depressed.
I'm totally open to suggestions, but I feel like I've exhausted all of my options already. Thanks for listening :)
