a little time off

No new posts today, other than this one. Not even SOD, and that hasn't happened in a long time.

I don't feel too well. I had a couple of anxiety attacks over the past few days, one of which culminated with me throwing hot coffee at Allen because he refused to shut up and leave me alone. Life is getting me down.

I stopped by my local Community Services yesterday to see if I could get a little help for my anxiety, and they're supposed to call me back sometime this week.

Anyway, this is not for sympathy; I'm just letting y'all know what's up. I'll be back to my old self here in a little bit

One good thing did happen today. I got an interview with the City of Roanoke. Don't want to jinx it, so I'll leave it at that.

Anyweay, take care, and I'll see all of you on the flip side.


  1. anxiety attacks are so fake...Monday, May 15, 2006 9:21:00 PM

    wow. I've got some xanaxes left over from mine's. this druggie at work keeps begging me for them, but I tell him that i'm out. want me to send them?

    anxiety attacks and inconveniently proximate adult siblings. huh! that's a new one...

    city of roanoke!! whoop! whoop! whoop! here's praying mr. ADD-pants doesn't manage to screw you out of this opportunity by association....

    oops. rewind!

    possible jinxes aside, we're praying for you....

  2. I hope the interview goes well. On the whole, planners make pretty good money, so you'll be able to get your own place when you get the job.

    Just focus on the positive things in your life and you'll get through this rough spot stronger than ever.

  3. What would I do without you guys? I always say I have the bset friends in the world. :-)

    Heather: Thanks for the prayers. You're gonna FedEx me the Xanax, right? LOL

    Mitch: Thanks for the vote of confidence. It'll be different that what I'm used to, but I think that it's a good thing it is. :-)

  4. Another thought ....along with medication, begin to understand the main causes of the anxiety, list them out. Then start sorting through how to eliminate (rarely possible) or manage the stressors. Maybe get yourself a good counselor for a while who can help you. We'll always have stress and anxiety but we can learn to live in it and with it ..."in this world we will always have tribulation." Hang in there!

  5. Thanks for the good advice, Todd. I'm hoping to solve this without medication anyway, and writing some things out so maybe I can understand them better will help.

  6. I snapped once about a year ago at school. I even fainted. It had been a rough week. I had like 3-5 projects due that week and it got to me as well as a few annoyances. My teacher suggested to size down everything like get some help with them. Don't know if that would help with you, but you get the picture. Get well soon!

  7. I have been pushing myself pretty hard lately. Yesterday, I was out looking for jobs and freaked out a little (OK, well, a lot), so I went to Books-A-Million found a comfortable chair and just sat by myself and read some humor books. It helped a lot.

  8. I find this a strange coincidence...I just snapped today as well...sat in my car and had a full-on nervous breakdown, freak-out and everything. With that being said, I completely feel your pain. You know what I did?? Logged onto the internet to divert my mind, and then came across your creepily-coincidental blog about you having a nervous break-down as well. Are you really just one of my split personalities? =) Are you for real?? =) Hee hee....

    Chin up Steven! Maybe a good jog in the park will help, or a bottle of wine and a good chick flick =) Those are the best!

  9. Maybe I can fill a water bottle with wine and then go jogging ;-) Seriously, more good suggestions. Thanks!

    I've been taking it easy today and listening to music in my room. In a few minutes, I'm gonna pull out an episode or two of "The Jeffersons." Never fails to make me laugh.
