Hairless Meg

On the mend

I had a good day today. My throat feels like it's getting better, I've been able to get some food in my belly and I got myself some groceries. I even got a bit of cleaning done around the house (there's always cleaning to be done) and made myself some food for lunch tomorrow. It feels great to have gotten some things done despite feeling a bit under the weather.

I was going to make supper for Jboy tonight but he had a long, busy day at work and wanted to go home and rest up. It's too bad that he wasn't feeling up to supper but just knowing that he can come over now is awesome! Besides, this gives me more time to clean the place up! hehe

I think being able to get the extra sleep and relaxation has really helped today.

I'm trying to be a bit more laid back in general. I recognize that much of what causes me grief is my own mind spiralling out of control about things that I'm worried might happen. I overanalyze things by making certain assumptions and end up worrying myself into a state of depression. A lot of the time, there's no rational basis for the conclusions that my mind makes. So, when the thoughts start to creep up and my starts making it's crazy conjectures, I'm acknowledging them, recognizing that they're false and then letting them go. It's working pretty well so far. I'm feeling less anxious, less needy and much happier. It's only been a couple of days but the difference has been big enough to make me want to keep it up!
