Feel Crazy? Thoughts to Ponder

It is something that we just don't discuss.  We know what people might think.  We worry what others might do.  So we say nothing.  We feel crazy sometimes.  We feel like we are going out of our minds. Work pressures, children's needs, a partner's requests, bills and more can leave anyone feeling like they are going insane.  But you will be alright!  You know why?  Because you are self-aware.

There is no denying the truth.  The health woes, pains, and uncertainty about the future are all clear signs that you have to scale back from some activities, visit a doctor or counselor, and if you have a faith, pray.  Many moms end up in their graves prematurely, because they prefer to run from the truth. They never want to admit that they are in mental, physical, financial, or spiritual trouble.  "I can handle it.  I'm okay.  I don't need your help," says stubborn mom who refuses to get treatment for anything and doesn't want to "bother anyone."

The truth comes out--it rears its ugly head sooner or later.  "I didn't know Mom was that sick," says a son or daughter.  "I really thought she was taking care of herself."  So many mothers don't and their families pay as a result.

So if you ever wonder why a mother loses her mind, goes off the deep end, acts as if she doesn't need anyone, or seems like something is a bit off about her, know this, she felt crazy long before she reacted.  She reached a point when she could no longer help others or herself.
