Mental Health Mondays
This week has been pretty okay.
It hasn’t been spectacular but it definitely hasn’t been the worst.
I started off by taking a Mental Health Monday.
That means I stayed home from work while trying not to do anything crazy spurred by my raging emotions.
I just was really angry that day. If there was anything small or slight someone had done to me in the past 24 hours, I was angry about it. And I wanted to do something about it.
I wanted revenge for all the little things people had done to me!
I have a rule though that I’ve developed over the years through much trial and error.
I’m not allowed to text or facebook message people.
I cannot even begin to tell you the amount of trouble I can get into with those.
Like when I’m having one of my angry days, all the brutal honesty in me wants to get out and I say some awful stuff.
And there’s some things you just can’t say sorry afterwards.
So to spare everyone’s feelings, I just make sure that I don’t talk to anyone.
Although for some odd reason I downloaded Tinder.
Don’t worry, I deleted Tinder almost as soon as I downloaded it.
I’ll have to make a rule about Tinder as well it seems.
But I was able to handle it.
And I’m not a bottle of raging emotions anymore and all that anger has slipped away and I’ve not unintentionally destroyed precious relationships in my life.
I feel this is a Bi-Polar win.
It does feel weird to take a day off because I was feeling too angry but over the years I’ve learned that if I don’t take that time off and take care of myself I end up doing REALLY stupid things.
So here’s to Mental Health Mondays.
