How Am I?

After I wrote about my meds issue, I never followed up, and yesterday someone called to see how I was doing, so I thought I'd better follow up.
I've been back on them for a couple of weeks now, and I'm fine. It is amazing to me how the tiny little quarter of a pill dose I take daily can just even out my world.
I don't get irritated by the small stuff. I smile easily. I am more able to roll with the punches.
But it does not alleviate stress.
I think if I could invent an anti-stress pill I would.
I think it would look like a huge bank account and endless love and good business and great health and lots of exercise.
I guess what I'm trying to say is LIFE IS STRESSFUL because it is never perfect.
OK, so I get it. I need to learn to cope with the stress instead of trying to eliminate it.
Yoga helps, if you can figure out how to find the time to go to the classes.
YIKES. I sound like a stress case.
Reality is I'm studying for my Broker's exam in 9 days, working, helping my friend with her work, so she can go take the same exam and trying to do all my normal stuff too.
I'm over committed in my volunteer life, and my house is a mess.
I think it's time to re-evaluate some priorities... BUT FIRST - I have to pass that EXAM.
More wine please... I think that's an anti-stress pill of choice right now.

  1. Hi Lisa, I didn't leave a comment last week when I read your post and I should have, because I really admire your courage to write so openly about some that tends to be so taboo. I'm glad to read things are going better this week. Thanks for sharing.
