By the end of the day, I feel frazzled and chock full of pent up feelings and thoughts. I don't want to let all that out on my kids or my husband -- and I hate it when I do -- so do you know any ways to get rid of this stuff without exploding?!
WOW, so this is preganacy number eight and I am only 25. I have one living child who will be for in about a week, Dec. 4th. My mind is racing with so many emotions, thoughts, questions and worries.
Since I am not new to the game of being pregant, this is STILL a shock. It was not planned persay, as in detail "quick im ovulating" but as in no protection and if it happens great!
It is a common issue...we want our kids to spend their non-school time wisely. Many parents turn to activities to keep their kids busy and may take on too much. They often live in their cars and have forgotten what their spouse looks like. Determine whether your family's schedule needs to be scaled back.
I have been under alot of stress the past week. My brother moved in with us because my parents dcided that they can't deal with him any more. He has been causing stress for my husband who currently got laid off. It's all dumb to me...
My husband doesn't like the fact that my brother isn't like his sister was when she was living with us... she stayed to her self and didn't want to hang out. My brother is the exact opposite he is a social bee... he needs to be doing something constantly...
To drag your body up to do anything when you're pregnant is hard enough, but to be motivated to exercise -- get outta here! Pregnancy is a time for sitting comfortably on the sofa with your feet firmly OFF the ground and your hand firmly IN a bag of chocolates...is it not?
Nurturing yourself is what enables you to be at your best for your children. Further, mothering is not a hobby you picked up for fun. You work hard for the sake of your children and family, and that entitles you to respect, care -- and stress relief.
So, its been a few weeks since we decided to try to get "with child". I abruptly ended my BC 2 weeks early.. I had a week of bleeding.. no clue what that was about..then i saw some mucus i thought was ovulation mucus so we made it a point to attempt fertilization that night.. a couple days later I then bought an ovulation testing kit and the day i started it, it said i was about to or in the process of ovulating... then the next day when i tested again the indicator strip on the test turned the darkest it could turn..looked like someone took a marker to it.. then yesterday I had cramps.
Hi Dr. Laura,
I have Post-traumatic Stress. I know I have it.
I am still a child I consider myself to be because I'm still in the teenage years, I'm 19. So I was wondering could you tell me how to deal with this issue.
I got this from being in a car accident on May 2007 and suffered from eye trauma and I'm probably going to be on eye drops for the rest of my life.
