I am confident I am not the only one this is happening to. Just when you think "I can handle anything", more gets loaded on top. At some point you just have to say its important to take care of your health. So I am officially protesting.
I was already at too much; more responsibility piled on has broken me and nothing is worth bringing Parkinsons on faster. I am going to be the one incapacitated as a result and then what? That is scary shit. No one is going to be able to help me. Love and hugs wont keep a wheelchair at bay. I am turning inward and getting "real" about this. I choose my health and apologize to everyone i have to say "no" to.
The stress is palpable and my body is screaming "you can't handle this. Wake up!" Dont know if you are an expert at tamping down wake up calls but I have a degree in it. This time it threatens to take away my vitality. This is no longer a choice -- find balance or suffer the consequences.
Has it happened to you? Life drew a line in the sand and dared you to cross it? Do I tempt the universe? There is no going back if I pick the wrong answer. It doesn't get any more real than this, people.
