Wish I came up with a better title, but it's the best I could think of. my question: who has taken time off of their daily routine to try to recoup their energy and refocus? Whether that came in the form of a brief hospitalization, intensive outpatient program, a couple sick days or extended time from work. Maybe a vacation? What was your experience with it. Was it more trouble than it was worth, either in organizing the time away or getting in the groove of getting back? Was it a form of avoidance that compounded your anxieties? A refresher that helped get your anxieties under control?
I really thought I was past THIS point, but I'm feeling overwhelmed with the thought of keeping up my day to day routine....and probably the "thought of" being a key indicator here in anxiety world
Work hasn't been overly stressful in the last few weeks, my new meal plan at home is going well. But when I go to bed at night thinking about all there is to do the next day.....I don't feel up to the task. I'm sure lack of sleep has something to do with it, the terrible winter something else. I just wonder if some time away would be beneficial. And if I were to take time away, how I would go about arranging it. we have a possible trip to Texas in March, and I'm nervous about traveling with the kids. So who's to say if that trip will me more stressful or maybe a change will give me the charge I need. I don't know.
