I need to be careful when I’m going through something difficult, as I have a tendency to make myself ill. Feeling scared and anxious leads to very cold hands and arms and my whole body unable to stop shivering for a while. Headaches ensue. Nausea ensues. Not particularly brilliant side-effects of facing harsh realities!
I didn’t write yesterday because I was exhausted and had to go to sleep before I could. I effectively spent the weekend not writing my essay. I spent some great time with loved ones, but also quite a bit of time worrying and thinking and getting stressed. My deadline is approaching, so focusing on my work needs to resume. Phone calls and further plans will be made in a few days when I’ve finished. Meanwhile, just trying to stay calm and lessen shivers.
