We made it here in Houston. The ride here was fair. It wasn't too bad and everybody seemed to get along pretty well. One thing did get to me right as we were arriving in Houston - First of all I was trying to give directions to my wife who was driving and during this she wants to tell me about a highway we are going to be taking tomorrow. Well that upset me because I am under stress trying to get to our destination while she is telling me about a highway that has nothing to do with the issue at hand. Now as a person who lives with a mental illness I try to take one day at a time and I got upset with her because she was telling me about a highway we aren't even using today which made me not feel like she helping me take one day at a time. Now I could be taking this to an extreme because I'm tired and we just drove for some 4 or 5 hours. And I wanted to get really upset and told her to shut up which I probably shouldn't have done but that's part of my illness. I don't want to let these little things get to me but I do know that this takes practice and yes, one day at a time but it's not as big of a deal as I am making I think. I probably owe my wife an apology and chalk it up to me being tired, physically and mentally. I want to enjoy so much but it seems this mental illness harps on that desire all the time. This is what is frustrating to me. I don't want to be missing moments of enjoyment. Stress also plays a big factor in my illness. It triggers it. And I married into 3 kids that live with us and one that doesn't so I know that I need a lot of support with handling this stress that comes along with the blessing of having a family.
