I didn’t have the best sleep last nights I felt like everything was amplified in my head and even cars driving past the house sounded like they were in the bedroom.
Now don’t get me wrong I was still asleep most of the night so I’m not complaining. I just felt a bit more alert, or switched on than I should have been.
The dogs were making strange noises when they first went upstairs. They have a wee mini door into the loft that may have been banging in the wind. Bhruic was moaning and quietly woo woo woo-ing which is her trying not to bark but grumbling at something.
I went up to them twice as they are in the room above us in the eaves. The second time I just brought them downstairs, let them outside and then left them in the living room. Never heard a peep the rest of the night. Job done ✅
Don’t know what that was all about but Craig was out for the count and never heard any of it. I was wired to the moon 🤦🏻♀️😬😆
Was super tired getting up this morning. Really drugged feeling and sleepy but was fine after my shower.
The drive to work was a bit more noisy than usual as the springs are “boinging” a bit….. who knew that was a word. There’s a noise like flint scraping about to ignite 😆😬
I’d made a smoothie before I left. Sat down at my desk to drink it. Sooooo there was kale, banana, coconut milk and blueberries. The kale was left over from last nights dinner….
The kale has been cooked on a baking tray with olive oil and salt….. take my advice and NEVER PUT THAT IN A SMOOTHIE!!!!!! ❌
Oh my actual god it was actually disgusting….. truly minging!
I then read an email. Now I’m not gonna write about my day to day work stuff but you know I love my job. Nothing prepared me for the reaction that came this morning.
I read an email and my anxiety hit the roof. The worst it’s been in a long time. Proper anxiety attack and it was only because I didn’t think I knew the answer.
So I start talking to myself…. bringing myself back down to earth. Reply to the email and job done. ✅
Then meet a colleague and started to explain my reaction.
And yeah… this is hard for me to write but the tears just streamed down my face. I have no idea where they came from, I had no indication of this being a bad day, the email wasn’t that bad, my reaction was totally overboard.
Something today or this week has triggered me for some reason and I can’t put my finger on it at all.
All I can say is that everyone at work was super lovely and supportive.
I am embarrassed. I just never wanted to be that person again. The one who cries. Again.
So I’m pretty disappointed in myself and the tears have been brewing all day.
I know I can justify everything. New job, new product to learn, new processes.
New gym and fitness regime. New cooking Hello Fresh that takes bloody hours 😆
It’s the tears that upset me. After all this time I still can’t control them.
I was gonna speak to the doctor about reducing my meds and it’s almost like my body wags it’s finger at me and says yeah not right now me darling, don’t think you’re ready for that yet.
That reminds me I actually ended last nights blog with watch me rise. There’s just a slight delay on that while I fumble about at this level obviously.
So I was lucky I had the Tapping group this afternoon where we discussed breathlessness. I always have shallow breathing when I’m anxious. By the end of the hour I’m really relaxed and breathe my more deeply. Of course I know that a nap is coming.
I did a Suzanne Robichaud meditation for deep healing. That was at 3.45pm and I woke up at 6.09pm. 😆 The phone was ringing quietly in my headphones.
It took me ages to wake up but the upshot was I got a hot and sour soup as Claire was getting a takeaway!! What a win! Took me bloody ages to figure out what Claire was talking about as I’d been in such a deep sleep!!
So tomorrow is a new day. I need to pick myself back up and forgive myself for the tears.
As I write that I just need to do it. Sometime. Soon.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
