Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week. A nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is ‘Stressful’ and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase. But please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week. There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in.

MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Stressful
Last week I was tired, I was looking forward to a better week but I’m sad to report that it’s been super stressful. Not only am I very ill (treatment week next week) but I have had so much to deal with. I’ve fought for Star to keep her place at college and after a really stressful day on Monday, we managed to actually get her to the college but she wouldn’t stay. I’m not sure what we are going to do now, I’m don’t know what options we have left. I called a helpline before Christmas but they have not helped much at all. I am literally banging my head against the wall.
But it’s not just Star. Boo has started to refuse school again. She went in last week for two days ok, but this week she became super stressed again. She made herself sick on Monday morning so she didn’t go to school. Then I had a call saying that she had an important exam to take and if she didn’t go in we would need a doctors note to prove why she couldn’t attend, or she’d lose her place on the course. She managed to go in and do the exam. I will give her some credit though, she has managed to go to school for the rest of the week.
All three children have issues which I am finding super stressful to resolve. I’m finding it really hard to keep on finding the strength to support them.
I don’t know if it’s stress, but I also have a headache at the back of my head which won’t go away and hurts so bad if I bend down. It’s impairing everything I do. I’ve also had a real nasty seizure this week and Graham wanted to call and ambulance but I (somehow) managed to stop him. It’s a sad time we live in when calling an ambulance is something you have to think really carefully about. I know they are under a lot of stress at the moment trying to keep up with Covid and staff shortages. And there is no way I’d want to be staying in hospital right now.
If I’m honest, this is just a little peek into what a stressful time I’m having right now and I really want to scream into the void. I truly hope that my lovely readers are having a better week.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
