Ahh, bit of a rotten day. It’s totally my own fault, though there wasn’t anything I could have done about it I guess. Basically, I slept terribly, with the typical issue of waking up far earlier than I wanted to, and then being unable to get back to sleep due to a racing and worrisome thoughts.
So I eventually had to get up for work, on hardly any sleep, and of course my anxiety kicks in full force. Tiredness has always been a trigger, and coupled with knowing I had a busy shift ahead of me… yeh. Not pleasant.
The only redeeming part of the day was that I actually managed to get past my anxiety long enough to get into work and get through most of my shift. I did end up leaving early, but I got through the worst of it and didn’t leave anyone stranded, so it could have been much worse. I still feel like a piece of shit for it, but it was better than it has been.
Let’s hope that it’s a trend that I can keep improving on. Time for an early night. Maybe this will be day 1 of me finally fixing my terrible sleep patterns.
