Days 8-10 Stress levels

Sunday, March 28, 2021

Well, Friday was low because instead of starting on the paperwork I put it off. I did not want to think about how I was going to deal with getting the denial letters I needed. I called one and the receptionist said she would send it to me. But I might need 2 more.

Yesterday was low too instead of listening to God telling me to start on it I put it off again, I know that tomorrow I will have to start on it. I am back to my old way of reading again. Can you tell I hate pressure?

I am trying to take 2 of the ideas for stress and use them. One way is to greet it and thank it for showing up and then tell it goodbye. The other is to plan 15 minutes of time to worry about things. Which is what I am doing now. Thinking about what my friend from church said about if I will be able to pay for insurance and that I will not get anything else out of it cause the money from the house goes to them if I buy. But I will not endanger my daughter by moving nto an apartment building that the other lady that goes on the senior bus lives in. It would put too much stress on her.

Today stress is back to 3 again thinking about the house and seeing a dietician tomorrow. Also Easter and thinking about writing a poem too. But I need more time with God.

    Laura I've had stress in my life and learned two major tricks when I took a cognitive behavioural course for depression.
    1) putting off the one major thing you have to deal with only compounds the stress so it's better to face it square on.
    2) Use a diversionary tool to help you get through; this could be imagining a warm day on a beach and seeing and sensing all that goes with that. OR; concentrate on slowing your breathing.

    Both these still help me in my life now. I hope you slept better last night emoticon

    And I wish this gets sorted for you emoticon
