I have been having a frustrating, difficult day. I took a shower, and had a great shave. I ate some quality food. I’ve been out of Ritalin for a couple of weeks, because of a snafu with my coverage. I called in and got a counselling appointment to make sure my treatment stays on track. So I’ll see my psychiatrist and if the paperwork on the meds doesn’t get underway before then I can make sure of it then. I have called the clinic, and the doctor directly about it, so I’m doing what I can on that.
I took a breath and labelled my emotions. That strategy’s been pretty useful since I started using it a bit before Christmas. It definitely helped today.
I sent some important stuff to someone important to me. Hopefully they see it as a sign I truly am taking care of myself, and making real changes in my life. We’ll see.
I’m anxious, disappointed, frustrated, deflated, and tired. I’m feeling better now,though. And I wasn’t that down to start with, just lower than I’ve been lately.
I had a shower, and a really great shave, which always makes me feel good. It really did have a good effect today. My face feels awesome, and I think I look great today.
