Opposite action today…

I’m going to have to use a lot of what DBT calls “opposite action” today.

This is basically when you do what you don’t feel like doing.

Like today I woke up.

Then, in spite of the fact that I’m clearly not going to Georgia to use it, I still did a Spanish lesson today on Duolingo.

I am exhausted because I only got six hours of sleep and I’m still recovering from the side offers of that vaccine, but whatever. I’m up.

I have to take a shower. Not optional.

I have to do laundry.

I have to visit some friends today.

I’m like not getting in my car and driving anywhere.

I’d like to.

I don’t even know where I’d go at this point, but somewhere else.

I just need a break.

I have this week and a half hole in my schedule with nothing in it.

No appointments. No structure. I am not going to be okay.

I need to go somewhere.

Okay. Whew.

That’s out of my system.

Anyway, I just need to plod along day by day I guess.

As you can see, I’m a little anxious. Or a lot.

I’m also just really sad.
