Massively Overwhelmed

I’m massively overwhelmed. I keep going from feeling nothing at all to feeling everything and crying. I have too much going on right now. I just closed on buying a house yesterday. I’m officially a homeowner, for the first time ever. I’m also dealing with my dog being sick and dying. There are many, many small things going on that I have to deal with in every aspect of life. I don’t know how to handle everything. Luckily, I have three weeks to move, so I can take my time and do it right. I’m going to take everything in life, one step at a time.

  1. You may feel comforted (or not) knowing that buying a home is overwhelming and stressful for almost everyone, even those without mental illness. And dealing with it when you are also handling the illness of your baby dog is understandably exhausting and emotional.
    I bought my home 29 years ago and I remember all of the craziness around it. In fact, one of my most vivid memories of the time was the frustration of trying to get the papers from the lawyer/insurance/bank/title etc. all done on time and when I missed the deadline for next day service on a deadline, I literally sat on the floor of the post office an cried hysterically with my envelopes/paperwork in my hands. In that moment, I couldn’t breathe and I didn’t think I would be able to get through any of it. Of course time and perspective are great healers and I have looked back at that young woman many times in wonder at how strong she was, especially buying a house on her own! And I realize – I did get through it… and you will too. Even the roughest of times have another side. Sometimes it just sucks getting to it.
    Hang in there.
