Been a while since I posted. I’ve been busy since I’ve been back to work after my “nervous breakdown” or whatever you want to call it. They switched workloads around and somehow I’m busier than I ever was…so much for my boss wanting “to ease you back into work and not overwhelm you.” 🙂 Anyway, I was ok for a while but the last week or so , I’ve been going backwards. I’m starting to feel more anxious at work and so I talked to my counselor about it. She suggested positive self talk and this rubber band technique. First, put a rubber band on your wrist. It’s not a new idea, but one I’ve never tried. Point is whenever I feel an anxious or self-doubting thought, first I am to talk myself down from it, i.e say things like “Everything will be ok, the work will get down, it’s ok, etc.” and if that doesn’t work, snap myself with the elastic. Supposedly I’ll be more focused on the pain than the worrisome thoughts. So far, I have a big red welt on my arm and I’m still anxious. Yay me !!! 🙂 well, i just wanted to post something so there it is people, hope you enjoyed it. Have a great day !!!
