Anxious Ramblings Entry #6 – Meeting With Human Resources and the ADA (Part 3)

Here I am…two days before the “official” meeting with my supervisor and our HR department, and I ask myself, “What the heck am I doing?” I went back and forth on whether I should have my husband come to the meeting as a witness and for support purposes, but my sister talked me out of it. ...

Tired of Talking

Originally posted on justanervousgirl:
Today’s topic is yet another issue plaguing my psyche. I have so many mental frays that I wonder how is it that I’ve made it this far without turning into?a lunatic. By all appearances, I look normal. I’ve been told by others who know I have social anxiety that they wouldn’t…

Anxious Ramblings Entry #5 – Taking a Toll

I also know that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) ...

Anxious Ramblings Entry #1 – I’m Selfish

I feel extremely selfish for tuning out people around me. If I sense any negativity or pessimism coming from someone’s spirit, I will flee far away from it. I do not feel like I am at the point where I can handle the negative thoughts of the world. I am ALREADY a negative thinker, why ...

Mental Struggles of a…

  Millennial…but what struggles could millennials POSSIBLY have this early in life?   I remember the night I decided to blog about the my struggles of dealing with mental illness.
