I am extremely tired today- dragging in fact- but I wanted to briefly mention how anxiety sometimes takes a back seat when you are extremely tired.
Last night while at work I called home to check on things and my husband reported that he had to leave work early because he was feeling sick. Passing kidney stones.
By the time I arrived home last night around midnight he was writhing in pain and our teenager had just come home with a major attitude (because we texted her and told her she had to come home- parent police unite!).
Long story short I had to drive my hubby to the emergency room. We stayed there all night. They were going to admit him but the doctor said since your wife is a nurse she can watch you closely in case you have to come back in…
So after not sleeping all night I rested for one hour at home. Then I had to get up and arrange to see a specialist for him (entailing multiple phone calls and stupid insurance stuff). Oh yeah and also get my younger daughter to believe it or not yet another doctor appointment.
By the way -thankfully my husband is fine – he just needs to rest up for a few days.
In between all this I had to run to the pharmacy to pick up antibiotics and pain pills for my husband. Oh yeah and do the grocery shopping…
Meh.. One of my anxiety triggers…
While at the grocery store I ran into one of my neighbors- and this is something that on any given day would make me panicky and have to practice anxiety self help skills. She wanted to chat.
Ah- the gift of extreme tiredness. I was able to just talk to her and her daughter and not feel one bit of anxiety.
Too dang tired.
Sometimes lack of sleep can be a good thing, lol.
Ok time to rest.
I wish you peace,
