They all add up sometimes

Doesn't it seem like sometimes there's a bunch of little things that add up over a period of time and become one big thing that's hard to deal with?

I'm finding myself there. I'm too tired to explain it now, but I'm sure many of you know what I mean. Maybe tommorrow I can elaborate.



  • And there's no telling when it hits, it just does. It's okay to feel it too, so don't cut yourself off from that. Just go with the flow and grab a box of kleenex.

    We're always here for ya,

  • I also find at times that it's hard not to sweat the small stuff, especially when I'm not feeling well. Please try not to let it overwhelm you. Let it out, no matter how silly it may seem and you may feel a whole lot better (kind of like when you give that rude driver the "secret" finger LOL).

  • It's like trying to carry hand fulls off pebbles up a wet grassy slope. You just know you are going to fall and drop them.

    It all stacks up and wears on your. Little failures or things you do not want or can't do. One on top of another. Till they add up to one big thing.

    Me? Noooo, I've NEVER had that happen.... :O

    Hang in there, with any luck the little things will go away, little by little.

    I hope!

    I'm with you all here, over time I have learned to not let the small stuff get to me like it did in my earlier years, so I thought. But every so often it comes back to haunt me, you try so hard not to let it stress you out. But add the day to day pain and discomfort on top of it all and it's the makings for a disaster.
    I was reminded of this last night and after a somewhat restful sleep I guess
    I'm a little more relaxed this morning, but then again I haven't got to work yet. Hope you all have better days.
  • I hope you are able to make it to the greens for some "tee time" to work off some of this stress. Be well, my friend, we're thinking of you!!!

    its like a snow ball effect. Once things start to roll, its hard to stop it.
    So many times we try to figure out what stated it all.. It could be something very simple, bending the wrong way, picking up something too heavy, or even sleeping the wrong way.
    But we know when it happens, but the problem is that we can not always keep that in control... So many times it just keeps on rolling and rolling and we nhave to find ways to deal with it.
    Even though thiese 'setbacks' or whatever we want to call them are short lived... So in tim we can recoup and get back to where we were..
    Cathie, I only hope your setback is very short lived and you can get back to your normal self
