dealing anxiety self care quirkyq quinn pascalAs the title implies, I have anxiety. I feel a breakdown starting to happen as they have been quite frequently recently but this time I’m taking a different approach. My approach has to be different especially because my boyfriend is out of town and he’s been my anchor.

For the past hour I’ve been watching youtube videos. Not necessarily helpful ones either. Step one: closing out of youtube.

Step two: Food? Food. Sweet potato fries are now in the oven.

Step three: While fries are baking, medicate and start writing a blog post. Yes, what you’re reading right now is what is helping me cope by typing.

Step four: Get intensely side tracked by organizing all the images on the computer desktop and downloads folder.

Step five: Keep writing the blog post, check on the fries when ya fingers start to hurt.

So far, so good. With my fries I’ll have mayo and maybe hot sauce. Might make tea, definitely drinking water. Medicate some more in the form of medical marijuana. Hunt down some photos for said blog post.

Step six: Slightly burn sweet potato fries. It’s ok though, entropy is inevitable.

How do you take care of yourself when you start to feel that funk?

xoxo
