I had my appointment with my counselor today- she is a wonderful lady, and so patient and understanding with me. I have not seen her in a while, and it feels that so much has happened since I last saw her. I tend to really look into myself when I speak with her, even if I do not verbalize everything, and inevitably return home still thinking and introspecting. She helps me through things, but I cut it short today because I was super late after taking my son late to school. I am sure that I will probably forget a lot of my stress by this afternoon, since that seems to be a pattern for me. This morning has been rough though, and I am working through it. My children and I have been ill, and I am sleeping even less due to the medications. The insomnia is not even allowing my normal 4-6 hours insomnia sleep- it has me at about 2-3 hours, which is significantly impacting me today. I have not even been able to sit and rest- I feel as though I need to keep doing things, but I am not being very productive- if that makes any sense. I have had these days before, without another illness to compound it, so I am aware of the coping skills I need to use to deal with it. They are just a bit harder to use this morning. Yikes- I need to make today better, starting right now.
Be the reason someone chose not to give-up.
