Default Overwhelmed with challenges

Hey all, I lost a lot of weight on this forum before. I then got pregnant with our second child. It has been hard since he was born due to his extensive special needs.
My husband stays at home and I have to work more to make sure to provide for all of us.
On top of that, I developed an arrhythmia 5 months ago so can’t really exercise. A flight of stairs the other day made me have to sit down and they almost took me to the ER. The meds I was on for it made me even more dizzy and feel worse so I stopped them (ok per cardiology but there’s not really anything else I can do about it)

Throw in IBS and lactose intolerance I’m pretty limited on what I can eat. I’m sort of frustrated and just sort of over everything. Id love to hear how others are dealing with their problems and how they overcome them. ☺️

I'm overwhelmed from school, my internship, my tutoring job, bills, and bunch of other stuff with my family and I don't know how to deal. I know I should take things one step at a time, but it's hard because I need to do everything at once to graduate early. I'm afraid my mental health is taking a toll though. Edit: grammar

Default complex challenges

Our work lives have become increasingly demanding, presenting us with ever more complex challenges at a near-relentless pace. Add in personal or family needs, and it’s easy to feel constantly overwhelmed. In their book, Immunity to Change, Harvard professors Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey discuss how the increase in complexity associated with modern life has left many of us feeling “in over our heads.” When this is the case, the complexity of our world has surpassed our “complexity of mind” or our ability to handle that level of complexity and be effective. This has nothing to do with how smart we are, but with how we make sense of the world and how we operate in it.
