I mentioned in a post a few days ago, “What to do When Your Boss Hates You”, that it is a lot of crying and being angry. This is what my situation is currently. I have been in a brutally foul, paranoid, and weepy mood this whole month, and finally today, I couldn’t take it anymore. No, I didn’t live out my perfect “I Quit” scenario, but I did one almost better: I have a doctor-approved reason to stay home tomorrow.
I have been so tightly wound this whole month that it is starting to affect James and I; I come home everyday in a beyond angry mood, crying and yelling, and then eventually I pass out at unreasonable hour for someone my age still angry. It must have caught up with me because from Monday to today, I have been feeling feverish and just all around not well. I had a psychiatry appointment today and after explaining my entire month to him, even though this was just supposed to be a medicine management appointment and only scheduled to be 15 minutes, he decided that for my mental and physical health, I needed to stay home tomorrow. I can not tell you how much I appreciated that opinion and how relieved I am that I actually get a day to just not stress my brain to the point where I want to throw myself down the stairs in hopes I’d break something just to stay out of work longer. I think this day of rest comes at a perfect time, don’t you?
I have stressed this time and time again, both here and in real life with people, mental health is just as important, maybe even more so in some cases, as physical health. Please, dear followers, take care of your mind as well as your body. They go hand in hand.
I am always here to talk, even I reply the next day, I will reply. Even if you don’t want to talk about what’s going on inside your head, I’m here to listen to whatever you want to talk about. Send me a message or leave a comment. I care. I really do. Keep up the good fight!
