It’s OK to feel overwhelmed!

Today life has crept up on me and I feel overwhelmed! It’s not just the recent diagnosis – although that’s quite enough, thank you very much – but a collection of ‘life stuff’ alongside it. As I’ve said previously, I have had bouts of depression in the past and some days I would wake up and for no apparent reason I would feel ‘blue’. The more I tried to reason it away the bluer I got! So, I learned to say to myself “today is just a blue day” without over analyzing it and you know, it made me get over it so much easier than fighting against it.

So today life feels challenging and hard and I’m a bit tearful. No one thing, I just am. So, I have warned my husband I might be a bit snappy and wise man that he is, he is giving me some space.

So, today is a moody, touchy, grumpy day with a few tears along the way and I say, it’s OK and aim for a better day tomorrow.

I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
