Step daughter and granddaughters were fine with me. I coped just about on Thursday and Friday, but i think the bed breaking on me in the middle of the night, and waking with a bad headache/migraine, triggered a downward spiral.
I briefly met one of my step daughters friends, she was ok with me.

Sorry that happened to you.
There are positives you could take from the experience reading about it from the outside.
However I can understand how the whole time will feel overshadowed by the negatives.
Try to relax now you are home.
Maybe you could make a list of positives and negatives to analyse how it pans out?
Well done for going to start with.

Stepping back and looking at it there were positives (1) I went there (2) My step daughter enjoyed having me . It was unfortunate about the bed but as people have said beds are designed to hold heavier people and therefore the bed might have been faulty anyway.

Hi ooby,

it's good you can see two positive aspects to the visit and also reduce the negativity you had initially placed on the bed breaking. Although I can understand that wasn't a nice thing to wake up to. Beds aren't always built too well and one missing screw (or small fault) etc, make them brake so much easier. You never know whether the kids haven't used it as a trampoline ;) or if it got damaged during a move. These things happen. You spent time with your family and that's what's important.

Will you be seeing them soon?

Hugs, ngu x

It will probably be 6-9 months.
