I am trying to manage a lot of stress now. My boyfriend just passed away and I am in the grieving process, which is hard enough. I can't always get to sleep at night for the past few days, and I often wake up during the night thinking about him. Sleep is suffering now, and yesterday I noticed a cold sore popped out on my upper lip.
If that were not enough, I am struggling financially and looking for work. There is also the eventual move I will have to make to go across the country within the next several months to a year. I don't have family here where I am now to help me prepare for this move, and my friends don't live close either. In a lot of ways I am alone.
I am a bit overwhelmed right now but trying not to let it get to me. I deal with it all by taking walks, talking with friends and family on the phone, posting here on BellaOnline, writing in my journal, etc. I take one day at a time because it is all I can manage.
