I thought today would be a good day

After a run in with my STBX last night, I started today ready to work, stay focused, and shrug off the stress of last night. I'm finding myself just the opposite. I'm a mess.

I'm tense, unmotivated, I'm short with the kids, and I have the most insane urge to binge eat- which is rare for me. Any advice on riding this phase out without totally self-destructing?

movingon, it is crazy how we are displaying the same symptoms today. Yesterday I had a frustrating meeting with someone I was seeing. And today I skipped the gym, skipped a meeting, left work to take a nap, and ate pizza and 4 pieces of cake. Tomorrow I am going to get back on track

Sorry you feel that way. I have those feelings more than I like to admit. I would suggest walking or running while listening to music. That usually helps me release some anger and gets me to where I need to be. Although some days it doesn't work as much and I am not only a mess but a tired mess. I usually treat myself to a long bath. We all have those days, and we all think its the worst day ever, but tomorrow is a brighter day and a fresh start. You'll be ok!

Moving,

How old are your kids? Can you get involved in something outside with them? IF the weather is nice go on a short nature hike if they are old enough.

If the weather is horrible play a board game. Make sure it is something they can all play.

I know if I get lost in doing something I feel 100% better.

moving....i've been in that mode for a while now. everyday i say: today is going to be better...and heck it isn't. so, now i'm tired of feeling like a failure so i decided i'm just going to stay home for as long as I need, maybe a week or two, keep to myself, sleep, until i gather enough strenght. screw my job, and everything else, i need to put myself together...though, i don't have kids, makes it a bit easier. can someone give you a hand and take a day off, to regroup?

I think my STBX will be responsible for the kids tomorrow. I've been invited to my best friend's sister's wedding and even though I don't really want to go and feel all the usual blahs (nothing to wear, no energy, etc) I'm going to go for a while anyway.

Not being responsible for the kids all day and all night and having something to look forward to in the evening will be good.

As for today, it's almost bed time, my oldest had a good day at preschool, so we're playing card games and having special treats before bed. It's looking up, but it is a struggle today!

I'm just so incredibly grateful that I can come here and tell you all about how crappy I'm feeling and not be belittled, shamed, whatever. It's good to know that others go through the same things.
