Having a rough time

Monday, February 04, 2013

I'd say that my anxiety level is high but that's an understatement. The last week of my life has just, for lack of a better word, sucked.

It started off with my physical on Monday. As you can see in my prior post that was fine. It went well actually. The trouble started that night with a fight with someone I love very much. That fight lasted until Tuesday night. It's resolved now but things are still weird.

I woke up around 4am on Wednesday to a major panic attack. Luckily I have a prescription that I use when that happens. I rarely take it, but sometimes it's just necessary. But the panicky feeling lasted all day. I wound up taking that little pill twice. Also on that day? I dropped my cell phone in a rather large puddle and it died. On the upside it meant I could upgrade to a smartphone, which I've been DYING to do.

Thursday was ok. After work I went to dinner and a movie with my boyfriend. But I had a nagging bad feeling about my class at Kaplan, which leads me to Friday. That's the day I got the call that my class was being closed. I am not pleased about that. On the upside I'm taking over a class for a few weeks while someone is on vacation, but after that it's uncertain.

So yeah. Not great. This week can only be better, right?

    Oh Sweety, I'm so sorry you're having a bad time of it again, anxiety wise. I should call you. And that's terrible about your class. {:{
Sending you vibes for strength...

    I hope this week is off to a better start. I agree with MAMISHELI53, you do seem like you are finding the positive side of things. I hope you treat yourself to a smart phone and take a little time for yourself. Maybe some physical exercise will burn off some of the frustration. I have a hard time making myself take that step when I feel blah, but when I do, it always helps. Hope things turn around!

    Everything happens for a reason luv. But I totally understand, when things go bad, seems like its down hill on. U have to look at the bright things of everything that happened. Like the phone scenario. As for the fight, was a message finally sent and resolved and r both of u feeling better about getting their thought across? As for the class, your a talented young lady, and things can only get better. While one door closes another one better may open for u :)
As for the anxiety- im with ya on that. Its very hard to sway it, especially when you feel a certain way about how things should go. And I for one can only say the feeling wont last forever.... but when the feeling is there , it plan old sux. Each of us can only deal with a certain problem a certain way and hope for the best.

    You seem to be pretty good at finding the positive side of otherwise negative circumstances. Keeping accentuating that!
As a Christian I hold fast to the promise that God works all things - ALL things - together for my good (Romans 8:28) - but sometimes it's more challenging than others. My stressor right now is what to do about my mortgage - which had been in my husband's name, and he passed away, and I've just gone ahead and kept paying it. But I was advised to get it put in my name. So I've got folks giving me all kinds of advice. ARGH. I hate paperwork.
Blessings on your journey to a healthy lifestyle.
