State Evaluation


Thursday, March 21, 2013

My SSD evaluation went well a month ago, but I went through a lot of stress while it was happening and this caused stress and anxiety attacks. Today I received a letter in the mail that now the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry was evaluating my case. I received this in the mail after the hours to call today so could not do anything but worry. But all I felt was a sense of calmness for some strange reason. Before, this might of pushed me close to the edge but it just did not. I realized that I would just wait for my first opportunity to deal with this and take care of it to the best of my ability.

I have gone 17 days with one anxiety attack and I am determined that this new stress will NOT cause another attack. It felt awesome to put on my update that today was day 10 anxiety attack free. I will try my best to make it day 11. It feels good that I am better able to deal with stress that comes my way. One thing that helped me was reading 3 stress articles on SP today. They helped me to place this stress in perspective and to continue to remain calm.

Writing this blog is in itself a way for me to deal with this situation. Putting down in words my thoughts and feelings is causing me to cope. The first opportunity I get I will take care of what I can do. I just have to relax stay calm and hope for the best.

    Good morning Steve. Good luck with that evaluation. It's almost like writing an exam and awaiting the results. I have the same problem when filing my taxes, of all things. I send them in and then wait to see if everything is okay as I've had two audits done in the past four years. But, there is not much we can do about it. We can only change what we can. Worry is one of the worst words in our language. I guess we need to simply be able to deal with it. And it looks like you are doing a great job at it! Carry On! have a great day!
