Dinah,
That does sound distressing. And a huge boatload of pressure. I think that rational you can look at what you wrote and pick out the irrational messages, so I'm not going jump on those. (Although you sound just like a client I had who was very perfectionistic...we used to spend many many sessions on the ideas of competent and good enough versus doing the absolute best you can).

I do want to offer emotional Dinah some support. Standing up under all that pressure is tiring to say the least. I'm sorry you are in this situation right now. I wish I was there to help you with the load.

And please remember that when we are the most stressed, the choices available to us can seem very limited. There might be more options out there, even if they seem impossible or the outcome abhorrent.

I'm thinking of you,

gg
