Blog Posted:6/22/2010 11:51:00 AM

Have you ever had one of those years where you are just waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting…… (okay, you get my point) for something to happen so life can move on? Where you’re stuck? Like when you hit the most stressful, most tension filled moment in your life, and then it just STOPPED. Like being stuck in a bubble, filled with all that tension and not being able to get out. You can see life going on all around you, but no other emotion or experience can touch you.  You just want to break the bubble so you can take a deep breath of fresh air and MOVE ON!!!  That’s where I’m at. It’s not fun!!  If I don’t get rid of some of this stress soon, it just might kill me. Terrible thought, but accurate I believe. Between the lack of sleep, chest tightness, back and should pain (from tension) and just overall fatigue….it could happen!!!   …..Just Saying……..

    Dear Kirstie, As you get older you will find that there are fewer and fewer waiting periods. Life snowballs and just keeps moving faster and faster. If I were to have a waiting period I believe i would take it as a gift. Love, Joyce

    Thank you all so much for your comments. It does help knowing I am not alone. I also appreciate all the helpful information to get my life moving again. I will try them all. It is so nice to have somewhere to come and release my frustrations, and in turn have those frustrations met with kindness and understanding. Thank you again....Kirstie

    Hi Kirstie :) --add me to that list!! Sometimes I can't help but feel that my life is just spent waiting on some things---hoping and praying for you that your stress eases up and that you could bounce back from it--I totally agree, it can be pretty dangerous to your health, and we sure wouldn't want that for you! I wish you all the best & God bless you--- nikko :)

    Been there and it is no picnic.I eventually got involved in so many things, I didn't have time to think. Hang in there and literally force yourself into getting involved in something you've wanted to do but never took the time. God Bless. Vince

    ohhhhhhhhh yeah I hear ya! I actually keep a list on the frig of things which when I feeling OK make me happy! When I'm not feeling OK feeling like you discrib I'm sorta.."immobilized???" so I go to the list & literally FORCE myself to do stuff from it!! Usually I start to feel better. Also, human touch helps! Go have a massage or a manu pedi...really! we all need to be touched!

    KIrstie, I have my ascending sign in Libra and I can totally relate to this. I think we are feeling this same tension as a NATION right now. WE are all trapped in a huge bubble waiting to be released back into a world where all seemed sane.Where we knew that we would have our jobs until we retired and that we would have a pension or small social security to look forward to. When we could trust that the rug would not be pulled out from under us. Losing homes, losing jobs, losing security, losing a feeling of safety in increaingly violent communities. That is what is stressing ME out lately. Not so much me (though it is happening to me on a small scale) but seeing it happen to family and friends all around me. the whole world is "waiting" meanwhile, try to enjoy your life, your family and trust in God. Your bio says it all. You have all the ingredients to face the challenges (as Joe so astutely observed here) Luv, Andrea

    My own life has been one of twisted paths, the road not easy, lots of good and bad memories to re-live, and I have found, writing to be my way of releasing those emotions, that stress, that pain, write it, and release it to the it drift away.. it won't happen overnight, but one day, you will notice, you feel different, you have taken a new path..and as already said, look at your bio... there are many things that make you amazing.. love constance

    Kristie, just read your own bio to see that you are too many good things with too many good characteristics to get too down for too long. Almost everything you wrote has an opposite to help you through your tough times. Man, Husband, Children, Mother, Sibling, Pepsi Pourer, Text Reciever, Musician, Dog, Lover, Friend, Shop Keeper, Picture Modeler, God, Movie Shower, Butcher, Performer, People who liked being watched, Sun, ... (some words I couldn't find the right pairing for, but you get the picture). You are there for them and my bet is, if you looked, you would find them there for you, too. Good luck. Joe

    Dear Kirstie, I do know what you mean. I read your bio and it's exactly me. We are Libras, and we need Balance if not we go nuts. I even thought I myself wrote this blog (but I don't remember it...) See what area in your life needs to be balanced and work at it...Yeah I know I am not the person to give advice as I feel the same as you.

    Yes, Kristie. I know the feeling. Limbo. Could be the higher power has your there untill your learn a certain lesson in life, then you will move on. Check it out, see if there is a lesson of life involved. When we hate the place our lives are in, this is usually the case. Agape, Moses.
