A recovery from anxiety overload day.
I think my body is literally allergic to anxiety. I am breaking out and itching and this happens when things get to a certain point.
Okay. I've swallowed that pill. I had a little talk to myself and said, "So- what's the worst thing that can happen? What's the best?"
I need to take the trash. I need to take a walk. The air is so very heavy with rain perhaps coming.
The zebra-winged butterflies cannot leave the firespike alone. Every time I look, they are fluttering and feeding there.
Today is a I will note the butterflies feeding all day long day.
Today is an I will be quiet day.
Today is the only day I have today sort of day.
If that makes sense.
My friend's son breaks out in anxiety welts - turns out it's the cortisol. Yes, anxiety is physical.ReplyDelete
Have a good quiet day x
It's so true, Jo. And that's why I've said "fuck it" and taken an Ativan today. I need to give my poor body a break.Delete
quiet days are good. I'd take one myself except I still have much to do before tomorrow.ReplyDelete
I do intend to get things done but very slowly and very quietly.Delete
We shall see how that works out...
And sleep when it feels like you must.ReplyDelete
My anxiety manifests often with hives. It sucks. Glad you have ativan when you need it.ReplyDelete
Yes. I am sure it is not uncommon. I have been coming down with hives since I was a child. No doubt I had anxiety then. I certainly had reason for it.Delete
This will be a stay at home day for me too. It is raining outside for the second day running, and the last of my houseguests left this morning. I have work to do, and I will do it, but that is all. I hope you get rain soon. It feels cozy and cleansing.ReplyDelete
Still hoping for rain here. Any little bit would be a relief. I am glad you finally have a day to do what you need to do and nothing else.Delete
It does make sense, Mary. Perfect sense.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Liv.Delete
And was it a calming day? I hope so.ReplyDelete
It was, in its way, calming enough. Thank you, Jill.Delete
I'm way behind here. And everywhere. I'm so sorry to hear about the anxiety. I had a bout too. Driving through mountains and family/Thanksgiving set mine off. Ugh. I'm better. Hope you will be soon too. xoReplyDelete
Well, all of that would probably have killed me. I'm glad you're better and I hope to be better soon myself. We shall see.Delete
Today is a nap day for me. I only got dressed because I have thought someone was coming by. They didn't. I slept.ReplyDelete
That is a gorgeous butterfly!
Here are some chickens for you. 🐓🐔
Thank you for the chickens!Delete
And oh- don't we love our naps? It's like a shrugging off of the cares of the world for at least a little while.
Those zebra butterflies are really gorgeous. I hope that the pill helps to relax you a bit. Sometimes, I think that I might need a relaxing pill too. But I guess my pill is the boat and the horse.ReplyDelete
