it's been a long week and i'm starting to wear down

my boss has been sick all week, so i've been pulling double duty. i'm short on sleep and haven't been feeding myself properly since i've been so busy and stressed out.

my cat isn't feeling well, so i got up at 830 this morning to see if they could squeeze me in before work, but no dice. taking her in tomorrow afternoon.

i have to go into work today for a special project and i'm rolling along on a pretty decent anxiety attack. i don't want to take an ativan because i'm so wiped out and don't want to be a zombie since the project involves talking with a client. i should feed myself, but my stomach is too upset.

i feel near tears and no where like being able to handle today. i know i will, though, i just have to remember to breathe.

1. Yes, dear fizz, do breathe,

have a bite and/or a sip. Do NOT starve yourself.

And remember, we're thinking of you.

2. Long, deep breaths.

I'm sorry to hear about your kitty. I hope news is ok tomorrow.

You will get through today. Just keep breathing.

3. I'm sorry.

Just remember, you're smart, competent, and will get through it . At least make the time to eat, if its just picking up some protein bars for portable energy.
