I've always had a problem of putting myself first. When I get stressed, I definitely let it go by the wayside. I have a tendency, outside of showering, brushing my teeth, etc, of just digging into the problem and forgetting that in order to take care of someone, I must take care of myself.
In this comes the game my mind plays. I have been hearing my thoughts veering toward saying how ugly I am, unlovable, etc. I can definitely tell that this week that my medicine must be working double time this week.
Dad is working hard in rehab. He has 2 daily PT workouts, 1 OT and Speech therapy plus neuro groups. He told me he has been working hard as he tried to get me to sneak in a coke. It makes me guilty that I can't do it and then he'll get mad at me.
I might have a date with Army OkCupid guy on Thursday. I have to get myself mentally prepared for that and put on some makeup, bring a change of clothing into work. Think positive thoughts about the whole thing. I can't go in all depressed now, can I?
