Sometimes I Just Want to Hide

I slept 15 hours last night. That's a lot and way too much but I woke up after sleeping 12 hours and it was only 10am and there was no way I wanted to be up early on a weekend after working all week. So I went back to sleep. That has absolutely nothing to … Continue reading Sometimes I Just Want to Hide


Update: Health, New Job, and Dating

I feel like so many things have been happening lately - changing. I guess it's really not that much, but I've been having some health issues.

Last week's schedule was great -- exactly what I had asked for. And then I got this week's schedule: Mon: 5:30am-1pm … Continue reading More Work Stress

Here’s to Not Being Rash

So, in my last post I talked about how I really wanted to quit my job a little over a week ago and how I set up a DEAR MAN and texted my boss. I never heard back from him so I was unsure if he got it, but then I got the schedule for … Continue reading Here’s to Not Being Rash

Pros and Cons

Monday was a rough day for me. I had spent the entire previous week working on Turning the Mind (DBT skill) toward acceptance in regards to going to work. When my emotions would get really strong (in the negative direction), I would take a deep breath and remind myself, "I am choosing to go to … Continue reading Pros and Cons
