One of the first things my therapist taught me (back when I was actually seeing one) is to always look for an alternate explanation when I’m going down the path of distorted thinking ( wp.me/p1N36Q-23
Unfortunately, I just could not think of what the alternate explanation for being asked if I feel like I’m “busy enough” by a superior might be… leave it to my husband to figure it out:
“If you think about it rationally, you don’t go to the person you are going to lay off to ask them if they are busy enough – because you already know the answer to that. Maybe she’s alluding that layoffs are coming to a trusted individual to see who she might be able to shift some of the work to…”
God, I love him. It might be a stretch, but it makes me feel better.
I’m not sure if I literally worried myself sick over this, but I developed a migraine headache late Tuesday night that lasted well into this morning. Maybe it was a result of overdosing on sugar. Yesterday, I wasn’t able to work – just laid in bed with the lights off and downed Tylenol like candy. Needless to say, it was easy not to binge yesterday, and managed to stay on track today.
