may I vent?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure if this is the apropiate forum for this post.
I'm tired.. I'm stressed.. I want things back to how they used to be.

I barely sleep taking care of Tom.
when I do sleep.. I'm dreaming about Tom [my last dream was Tom transforming into super man every time I gave him an insulin shot and destroying my city.. yeah an evil super man, lol]

I have my best friends b-day party coming up.. I don't want to go. I want to sit here taking care of my cat.
My life is on hold.
I take some medication.. I'm forgetting to take it now because all I do is think about my cat.
When I go to uni I'm anxious.. I'm not focused on uni, I want to rush back home and check on my cat.
I have homework, I'm not motivated to do it anymore, all I want to do is focus on my cat.

Its becoming ridiculous. I don't know what to do or how to handle this.
Its not only me.. my other cats are acting funny too.
Sophie who used to be so clingy, has detached from me.
Max sits on anything Tom leaves behind.
Kata is becoming clingy.

My life and my cats life is out of whack.
I just want to scream, I need some balance or some part of my "old" life back.
I have never been good dealing with changes every single hour of the day I spend worrying that Tom isn't ok.
I'm so stressed about this.

You sound overwhelmed and so stressed. I'm no therapist so I can't begin to imagine how to help ease your discomfort.

You have a heavy load right now with Tom and school and trying to juggle everything. I'm sure it doesn't help knowing that you have to ensure Tom gets his shots and can't really count on anyone else to cover for you if you are late or whatever.

Maybe now would be a good time to talk to your parents again and let them know you really need their help with Tom and how stressed you are.

I just want to add that your Tom is very handsome.

First, let me say that Tom is a very beautiful cat. I just read your post in Health and Nutrition and I can see why you are so upset. You have a kitty who is very sick. You are doing everything in your power to help him with no cooperation from your family. I don't really have any advice for you, but know that Tom knows that you are doing your best for him. YOU ARE!

You need to take care of yourself too. I know you would rather be with Tom than anywhere right now. Maybe you should go to your friend's party, but excuse yourself early.

Your vet said to call every few days. It sounds like he/she is willing to go the extra mile with you.

My prayers are with you and Tom.

Thank you everyone.
Yeah I'm a little overwhelmed, I just need time to adjust to all of this.
Thanks for listening it means so much right now.
About talking to my parents.. I think I'm going to give it another try this evening and see what happens...

I know things will get easier.. right now I'm just trying to deal and at the same time calm down [even if it doesn't work that well, lol]. I do feel better after writing that post, i needed to vent.

Tom thanks all your compliments
