What do you do to reign it in and get back on track on days where you feel overwhelmed?

My son was in a crash a couple of weeks ago, has compound fractures, on crutches, in wheelchair. I get him a kitten to cheer him up. The kitty is now having seizures, my 3 year old is feeling neglected, my son is stir crazy and sore, hubby works 12-14 hr days. Normally I take it as it comes and we just put one foot in front of the other, but today I just want to curl up in a ball and cry... I'm tired, I'm stressed, I'm angry and I feel like I can't catch a break lately. What can I do to pull myself out of this tailspin my family needs me strong?

    Thanks - this has been many months ago now and we've come through it much stronger and appreciative of life.

    Yes, there are some times where doing for others is not what you should do. Do find time for yourself.
