I Need A Nanny, But Not For The Kids

I feel like the time has come to admit that I am in need of a handler.  A manager.  An adult nanny.  I’m not sure what to call it, but I need it.  I’m still sober (Day 373!) but I feel my mood shifting and the thoughts of alcohol creeping in.  I’ll blame the combo of my mom in the hospital (Day 9!), the stress of starting a new business and a “fun-filled” family road trip to Las Vegas.  Throw in some ungodly high temperatures and the beginning of the back-to-school rat race for my three littles and I’m a prime candidate for disaster.  I feel like I need someone to boss me around a little and slap me out of whatever this is.

Let’s be real.  I have the tools to power through all this: yoga, a support system, meditation, journaling, exercise…  Am I using them?  Nope.  Not even one.  I’m isolating and not sleeping and eating my feelings.  This blog post is the only outlet I have the energy for right this minute and let’s hope this sparked a little something inside me to turn things around.   Fingers crossed.

  1. I have so many days when I wish I had someone to just tell me what to do. Someone to make the decisions for me for a change, to give me a break from my own head and responsibilities. Let me be a voice on this page for you for even a moment – keep writing. Keep reaching out. Be wary of the isolation and fight against it with whatever you can muster. You are worthy of so much more.
