Emotional meltdown

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Feeling overwhelmed, stressed. Alternating between crying uncontrollably and being inexplicably irritated by everyone and everything.

I am feeling the crushing weight of all the many things I need to get done between now and the start of the holiday (Sept 4).

I get overloaded even when the things I'm anticipating are POSITIVE things, like the holidays and my upcoming trip to Austin. It's as if I can't handle too many exciting things happening all at once. This feeling of being completely overwhelmed and exhausted before I even start working on my to-do list.

I don't want to turn to emotional eating or to my caffeine addiction. What should I do instead? Today was supposed to be my rest day, but I'm considering going to the fitness center anyway just to do some cardio to let off some steam. I tried drinking a cup of chamomile tea to help me calm down, and now I'm listening to some soothing music.

I think blogging about it is also helping a bit.

    I hear you. This morning I woke up and hated everyone's face. On those kind of days I take 1 pill of Valerian Root. It calms me down and I can still function.
