Stress Overload

These past few weeks have been stressful to say the least.

There are a few things I’d like to do in the games I play. In WoW I’d like to get at least one alt the legendary cloak, now that Blizzard has given a temporary nerf to the grind. I’d also like to get all my gear full 4/4 upgrades in both healing and tank specs. My healing spec has been 2/2 upgraded with a couple pieces 4/4. Tank gear isn’t really upgraded at all. So there is stuff to do in WoW. In Wildstar, my little bunny esper is chugging along at level 21. I’d like to get her to 50 by mid-July, so I can actually do the raid attunements with the rest of my guild.

But that just doesn’t seem important right now. Not even a little bit. It’s hard enough to get game time when the little booger in my uterus keeps making me fall asleep when I get home from work. It’s hard enough that the little booger makes me crave bad food which further kills off my energy. It’s bad enough that being pregnant is stressful enough, without my family being friggin’ psycho.

My grandma is 85 years old. My grandpa just celebrated his 90th birthday. Grandpa shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Grandma, on the other hand, is. She’s been on dialysis for 20 years (which by itself is remarkable). Her heart has decided that it can no longer handle the dialysis. She’s had a series of small heart attacks, and is never going back home. My immediate family (mother, uncle, grandpa) have not been on the same page as to what to do. They’re faced with the worst decision anyone could ever have to make. And what this decision boils down to is, let her go now or later? So they’re very stressed out. Which stresses me out. To make matters worse, they’re feuding with my cousins (grandma’s niece/nephews). And because I’m close with one of those cousins, guess who’s stuck right smack in the middle?? Yep. Moar stress! RAWR!

I didn’t sleep well last night. I literally have a pain in the neck. (I need new pillows)  I got very sick this morning. Some of that can be attributed to morning sickness (but 2nd trimester just started), but that is also my basic response to overwhelming stress.

I might login to WoW or Wildstar just to de-stress. But sometimes those are stressful in their own way…

(must…get….to….50….right….naow! must….upgrade…ALL THE THINGS… must…get…full…raid…group…ARGH)

Maybe I’ll just take a nap instead.

    I work in an ICU, and I see family fighting over when to let go all the time. It really sucks. Especially when they’re obviously gone and the family thinks it’s the right thing to do by keeping them around on machines for weeks… Letting grandma/grandpa/pa/ma/sis/bro/etc go can be a really hard decision. Sometimes people refuse to face it and says do everything no matter what…but you have to consider quality of life or even suffering as well as just living “no matter what”. It can be really bad when the patient is younger and taken from us too soon. Medical technology has allowed us to save people that just wouldn’t of been saved 20-30 years ago. This brings up more and more of these situations.

    But I digress. The lesson here is to plan ahead, and try to have a living will. But even then it’s not always so black or white. Just talk it out what you wish with your loved ones as best you can I guess. Sorry for your situation Ally. Your right, an 85 year old on dialysis is almost unheard of. You guys have been blessed with a lot of extra years.

    Hate hearing about those struggles Aly. I had some scares with my grandpa and recently lost my GREAT grandma a few months back. I know how stressful and down right scary it can be. Unfortunately there is no fix for old age. As my son would say, “It is one of my hatiest things”

    I pray you can muster the strength to enjoy your new baby when he or she arrives and get through the hard times you are going through. Such a whirl wind of emotions i bet.

    Take care and let me know if there is anything I can to do help. That isn’t lip service, I seriously mean that.
