It’s been a while, I know. But I find my anxiety acting up once again and I’m feeling pretty helpless. Does anyone else get this anxious about work? I know the answer is yes, but how do you deal with it? I constantly think I am making mistakes, sometimes big mistakes. I actually called out of work last week for a mental health day. Can I tell you something crazy? The last time I called out sick from work was probably 8-9 years ago.
I don’t know what’s worse, wasting time worrying about these mistakes only to find out everything is fine or when I find out it actually is a big mistake. I don’t know how I make such stupid mistakes sometimes. I think a lot of it has to do with how warped my anxiety makes my thought process. Seriously, I know that people will probably not respond to this which is fine. Just writing these things out make me feel a bit better. But how do YOU handle your anxious moments?
I’ve been finding myself saying “OY” lately (hence the title of this post). It encompasses how I feel while also making me smile because it is a fun word. As the great Lorelei Gilmore once said, “Oy with the poodles!”
