I posted yesterday that difficult child came home from fostercare after 1 1/2 years. She has been home every Friday-Sunday for almost the entire time. During the week though my house was very quiet. Last night was her first night back and it wasn't terrible, but oh my goodness, she never shuts up. I tried to go to my room, I told her that I needed half and hour of quiet. Certain noises really bother me, chewing, incessant chatter, swallowing, sniffling, bag rattling, like chip bags. I know this is my own issue, but she is so loud in all of them. Even when she gets in the bed she rattles her bed and tosses and turns and it's just not relaxing to me, even though she really isn't doing anything wrong. I guess I just don't know how to co-habitate with people. She wears her headphones when listening to musci most of the time, but I can still hear it. ] One day and my nerves are frayed. I am scared how I will be in a weeks time. I need help. I don't know if I can do this. I feel like a big baby yet it really does bother me in a way I really can't explain. How do you strenght your nerves. A Dr. didnt tell me, but I know I had a breakdown of some kind when difficult child had to go to fostercare and I just haven't been the same since. Any advice??? How do you block it out?
