this is a ‘pep talk’ to myself, so no one really has to read this. it’s more for me, but know that I do get stressed out easily and when that happens my depression and anxiety like to be all up in my face. so encouraging messages or just a <3 would be so appreciated this week…
alright Ruth…. you get stressed out easily. On a regular basis, but more so when you are on your period and when you work a lot. both are happening this week. we are going to take this one day at a time.
we are working over 40 hours this week. it will be ok. tomorrow you are working 9 hours. you are going to wake up and make a cup of coffee
then you are going to go to work and kick butt. then you are going to come home, take a bath
and listen to some relaxing music, possibly watch the walking dead with your boyfriend, and then go to bed early.
then you will wake up on tuesday, early, and make another cup of coffee, go to work for 9 hours and come home and do laundry and go to sleep early.
now wednesday…. wednesday will get you a little. that’s going to be a 10-11 hour day for you. and by then, you will most likely be pretty tired already. but first step is coffee. and then we will go to work, you will not ask any coworkers for these
at all. not allowed, even though you THINK they help you when you’re stressed. they are bad for you. it is possible it may snow that day too. it’s the mountains, you never know what can happen and since the weather is calling for it, it very well may snow a foot.
that’s all we are going to worry about for now. making it to the end of wednesday…. and we will take it from there.
you are not going to stress
you are not going to go in to that little dark place in your head
you ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE ONE OF YOUR CRAPPY MIGRAINES AND SCREW OVER YOUR COWORKERS
you will be fine
you can do this
