It’s Friday and my anxiety is back to a manageable level. Not gone, as noted by concentration still being difficult. And activities still throwing me off. But I am doing better. I have a physical today, which is causing some anxiety that I won’t be able to remember what I need to share. And, no, I can’t keep them in my head long enough to get it on paper or in my phone. 😦
One of the things I talked with my therapist about is that Everyone feels anxious about financial insecurity. And I was reminded today by a friend that most people feel anxious about physicals. The challenge for me is managing the anxiety in healthy ways. And…as my therapist pointed out…I Did handle the anxiety well this week with problem solving, reaching out for help to handle the feelings, using DBT skills, taking prescribed meds. Give.Myself.Credit!
So even though it’s been a tough week (understatement) I have survived. Thank Goodness!
And not a PS, but the rent situation has been solved through very generous gifts from friends, church, and presbytery. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
