"Feeling emotions is one of the greatest, yet challenging abilities we as humans have. Trying to master them when the chaos of life seems more chaotic can be overwhelming. This can be especially true when you are caring for an ailing loved one and are struggling to attend to your own needs. You may feel that you are unable to turn your thoughts off which can cause you to feel that your sensations are heightened. Maybe you feel empty or numb. You may wonder why you are feeling this way and may continuously over analyze this body-mind process. You're probably feeling stuck with where you are in life, and the path ahead looks fuzzy. "
