KathyD Posted July 7, 2006 Report Share Posted July 7, 2006 Hi,I was just wondering whether anyone has experienced feeling overly pressured by things that were no big deal in the past, to the point where it's so overwhelming you explode? This Saturday a friend invited me to go out on the town and then the on the next day I'm supposed to meet my Mom and grandmother for dinner, but last night I became so upset and angry that I wanted to scream. I don't know why but this morning I was crying and screaming in my car (which I NEVER do) and felt that although rationally I know such social get togethers are normal I just felt like I couldn't do any of it. It's only been 3 months since my Dad died and it's been hard for me to commit to any plan, and if I have to I feel pressured. I have people telling me I should do this or that but I'm not ready and have to deal with this in my own time and way. They just don't get it and the more they tell me "it's only a dinner", etc., the more irritated and angry I become. I was so anxious last night that I was having chest pains! Has this or something similar happened to anyone else? I'm normally calm, practice yoga and meditate so these emotions aren't helping me cope any.Kathy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
