Think I am on the edge of a nervous breakdown.

I'm tired of taking care of everyone all the time. Of being the responsible person. Of cleaning up others' messes. Of taking care of others' feelings. Of being a taxi. Of working. Of sobriety. Of being broke all the time. Of never having enough time. Of never having privacy or time to myself. Of dog crap. Of people crap. Of life. Of bills. Of men. Of organization. Of cleaning. I'm sooo tired.

When can I be the one to throw up my hands and say screw it? Let someone else take care of responsibilities for awhile?

Oh yeah, I don't get to do that. I forge ahead in quiet desperation.

It's ok to break down from time to time. I feel the same way you do. Just ready to give up. But I can't. I force myself to move on daily. You can't give up tho.

Just keep doing the next right thing. I understand that you're exhausted, but don't lose your sobriety; it is a gift, not a burden. Let the rest of it go for a minute if you need to, but hang on to that. Remember: "And the Wisdom to know the difference. Just for today".

Give it to God, pray on it, join a church to meet people who are sober, and willing to help.

you sound like my ex-girlfriend. considering she left me, chose to work but didnt have to, with a sober man (lacks that at her current local), i was willing to watch "their" kids while she got some alone time to do the "girls night out" thing, and the dumb broad decided to go back and put herself right back into the same mess again. if this IS you, i feel no pain for you or your situation.. if it is someone that is just in a similar situation, may you find your way to get what you need, down time is important.
