Thank you to all of you who've been sending me e-mails. And a big thank you to my good friends who've kindly offered to watch my kids as I'm resting. My parents (who are angels!!) who've been staying with me have been taking care of all the house work and watching the kids (which is exhausting). I must say it was a very rough start. But I'm starting to feel human again :)

January Anxiety

Saturday, January 8, 2011

The beginning of January was fun. I loved decorating for new years! This year I took down all the Christmas decorations and I put up New Year's decorations. I hung lots of curled gold ribbon everywhere. I also put lots of party hats, balloons, champagne poppers and noise makers everywhere. It was fun! 

Then the craziness started....not only did I forget that I have to get readjusted to the school schedule, but I also greatly underestimated my anxiety about an upcoming procedure. I have an operation coming up and to say the least I'm very nervous. I had my pre-op the other day and I feel much more comfortable with the whole procedure but I'm still very anxious. I've reached the point where I can't even read any more.....anyone who knows me knows that I'm a reading not reading, is not good. 

I'm not sure that there's a whole lot I can do until it's all over. But in the mean time I've scheduled a play date every day next week so that I can't think about what's going to ensue the following week. The good thing is I have an amazing family and amazing friends who will be helping me out. Yet I still can't shake this paralyzing anxiety. Anyone have any tips as to a great way to shake a funk?? My only thought is to start making lists and checking them off.
