Emotionally Hungover? How to Get Through the Day

  1. I loved this post. I get the gaslighting. My brain needs constant rewiring. I am not crazy. You are awesome. Thank you.

    Once again, I can so relate. I was recently contacted by my ex (after 2 years of no contact) and the only way that I could describe the way that I felt the next day was, ‘hung over’ (something I don’t think I’ve ever truly experienced and I rarely consume alcohol and never to excess). Hmm… an emotional hangover, who knew? Love your analogies and way with words Lisa! You validate my thoughts and experiences.

    Ugh, I’m having an emotional hangover today, too! Thanks for sharing, I needed this! I really like the ‘sleep’ and ‘be kind to yourself.’ I’ll be trying that today.

    Been there..hope your are feeling better!

  6. Thinking I’ve been stuck in an ongoing bender…so much of what you’ve described can’t be attributed to one day in particular but more of a state of being for me. Thinking I must be an emotional drunkard…it’s not much better than an alcoholic. As always, I continue looking for more ways out of the hold it has on me. Fog lifts some days better than others. Hope you made it out into the clear light of day yourself! 🙂 great post as usual

  7. I know that feeling all too well. But I never seem to be allowed the down time needed to process everything. I’m expected, by practically everyone in my life, to get up early, look for a job, do something/anything. It just drains me more. I want to sleep, but I’m so afraid I won’t be able to wake up early and so I stay awake instead, hoping to get everything done before I crash. Just one day, I’d like to not have to be on for everyone.
