Emotional Turmoil – Physical Exhaustion

The past few days were full of emotional turmoil.  I visited Mom, while she was at the hospital.  I saw her with oxygen tubes in her nose.  I saw her struggling to recover.  I worried about the prognosis and the seriousness of her medical conditions.  I knew she was suffering and I couldn’t do anything about it.

The emotional strain left me physically exhausted.  Each night I slept more than the night before, but I still woke up tired.  I tried not to focus on future possibilities and only deal with the daily issues.  However, I found my mind wondering into the unknowns of tomorrow.

My body and my brain seemed to be slowing down.  I would stare mindlessly into space and felt like there was an invisible force pushing against me, which prevented me from accomplishing as much as I should each day.

The emotional turmoil of the past few days caused physical exhaustion.  However, Mom is home now and I am hopeful that she will fully recover.
