Dealing with Anger

So, this past Wednesday I got pissed. Super angry. And who did I get angry at? My psychiatrist. I went to my scheduled appointment and told my doctor that I haven't been feeling well basically since the beginning of the new year.

So, in keeping with a promise I made to my twin back in November to join a club or group, I went to my second meeting of an Adult Writer's Group held at my library.

My client asked if I was getting enough hours and, when I said I could work a little bit more, cleared me for working up to 40 hours per … Continue reading Working Has Been Good For Me… Who Knew?

So, I Have a *gulp* Job

Guys, I have a job. I've struggled with having a job in the past. My past two jobs were part-time in fast food and neither of them lasted very long. I had too much anxiety and my depression spiked dramatically. But this job is different. It's still part-time at 10-20 hours per week but it's … Continue reading So, I Have a *gulp* Job
