Having anxiety issues along with depression and adhd can make life hell. Today I’m procrastinating getting up because I’m having a panic attack for some unknown reason. I just don’t want to get out of bed. I put away my knitting and changed from listening to a movie to playing an old music playlist, hoping that would change my mood but it’s not helping. In my previous jobs this would have resulted in a FMLA-protected day off. While I qualify for it, in practice it’s just not feasible for me to do that at this job. We are a small team and I can’t flake out. So the alternative is to suck it up and get ready for work and head to McDonalds for my usual coke with extra ice and a spicy crispy chicken sandwich without pickles.
I’ve gotten All The Love to 8”. I’m not expecting to get much if anything done on it today because I have to be to work early tomorrow and I work late tonight. It doesn’t look like this project will be done by my birthday but I’m gonna keep chugging along on it until I finish it anyway. Then I will get back to Jo’s sweater and the C2C Afghan.
