OK MoMo, here's that post I told you about in your ramblings.

One good thing about me is that I'm patient. I have had a sick kid home with me for over 2 wks and haven't grabbed for his throat yet. (Strep throat, ironically. )

One good thing I did for myself today is go to physical therapy even though I just wanted to lay in bed and vegitate.. It got me out the door first thing and jumpstarted the rest of the day.


Every day that I can I'll try to write at least one good thing about me that I think is true. If possible, I'll find something positive I did for myself every day too. For me that's going to be hard but I'll try. I hope others will join in. It's kinda the "GOOD TIMES RAMBLE" I guess .

Well one thing I'm doing that I think is good is I'm trying really hard to get along with one of the counselors who is really upsetting me at times. Is this considered good?

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

That's considered great. Getting along with a toughie person is one way you can help yourself.

Great, munkster!
I'll join in:
Today I had lotsa work to do, which I usually push off by going on Facebook, but I finished a big part of it, and made it more enjoyable by playing good music in the background.

Enjoying life while fighting anxiety!

This is really a silly one but I went into work. Yes I left a little early but at least I distracted myself.

I asked someone to buy me something I needed from the pharmacy because at the stage I'm in now I don't dare step into one. It's not really a victory/good thing because I should be able to walk into a pharmacy without any problem. Same is with a hardware store. Will I ever get over it and get better and have these stupid urges go away??????? Sorry I went off topic......

Toy....end result....You took care of yourself by getting someone to help you. My experience is that the urges lessen in intensity over time but dont totally go away. But it gets much easier to fight them and push them to the background.

MoMo....I figured you didn't touch this section because you didn't know what to write. From your "victories" thread you could probably write at least that you went to see your bro and sis-in-law despite wanting to be a hermit.... I am a hermit but I love every minute of being and introvert. I call it a hermit playfully .

shtarkebachur, I'm so happy you were able to do something for yourself. It's hard to have compassion and want to do something good for oneself.

Today I can honestly say was fun (besides the physical therapy.) I went out with my daughter and had a good time. She played hooky but for a good reason....she came to me and begged to stay home for quality time. My heart melted because she hasn't asked for that in a long time and my son just finished being sick for 2.5 wks and she felt neglected. So I let her. At first I was seriously bummed, but now I'm glad. It was fun.

My first reaction to my therapists answer to my email was rejection, but I was able to re-read it and see that really she cares.....

I'm not sure what the letter from the therapist was, but regarddless, it's good to be able to see therapist cares rather than rejection. To be able to reframe something is hard. WTG!!!

I stopped doing stuff for other people and rested when I started to feel sick. (I wouldn't have felt sick if I hadn't had maple syrup in the a.m. but such is the nuts of life.)

I know this is totally different but today I did something I always wanted to do (I mean always- ever since I was a very little girl) and always knew I wasn't allowed to. I still don't know if it's wrong for me.... but it felt good-right- like how I thought it would. And my therapist was the one who encouraged me to do it and she is religious. That helped a bit.

hehe yup. actually it was much worse but don't tell...
I went to a place where I wouldn't find anyone I knew and changed into jeans and spent a couple of hours enjoying my freedom. How BAD is that?

Nah I support you on that!
I had a point where I needed to do that too :-)
I still feel like I wish I could do that sometimes I just don't have jeans and don't have the patience to go buy it ;-)
I totally relate! Honestly I thought you were gonna say something 100× worse...

Sometimes the restrictions just have to take a back step to our health. When we feel better, that gets better too.
Speaking from experience.

Thanks guys for your support! Really this was just an experiment but I don't know what's next... I'm conflicted bc I really want this but then i can't have community or other things that come with conforming.

I've done that too many times to count..
Lately I do that much less and that's what counts.

Just move on and start the day over even if it's 5:00.

It's fascinating that we get caught in the same stuff. Apparently this is a normal reaction to out abnormal circumstances.

How was the rest of your day?
