After a freak out email trying to explain things to my case manager led to her appropriately redirecting me to my therapist, (I’m still working on getting that right), my therapist had some smart things to say that helped take my hysteria down a few notches.
I know I always do better when someone points out my strengths because when I am upset or lost I cannot see them. She helped me to see that I am stronger than I have been in the past and helped me to find a positive activity for this evening.
I have a friend who is sober and also quitting smoking so we went out and got a healthy snack. That seemed like a more positive choice than the other things that I wanted to do.
I guess the key here is that I reached out for help, even if it was kind of in a sideways direction, and I figured it out. I just felt weird about calling my therapist to be honest because I hadn’t done that, but I guess it was time. I needed to extend that trust branch a little further. I just hadn’t yet.
I’m also suspicious that this crash in mood is somehow hormonally related, as I am this headache that I have had for 3 days now.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings. It’s all a fun adventure really.
Hopefully I’m not back on here in the middle of the night, so I’m wishing you all a good evening!
