The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain

I don’t know why this is in my head, but it is.

I got through all of the paperwork I could do yesterday. It was a lot. And it didn’t even include all of the insurance and tax stuff. I’m feeling pretty good about all of this after my therapy appointment yesterday. She challenged me to do something – for every negative “what if” I can conjure, contrast it what a positive “what if.” So… “What if having to list all of my bipolar meds makes them rescind the offer which leads to me being a cashier at Target during the holidays?” gets met with “What if this is the job that launches my career and in five years I’m a department director?” I’m working on it.

I’m trying to keep my anxiety under control. So far it seems to be working. I haven’t been reduced to a quivering ball of anxiety, although it feels like that is right around the corner sometimes.

Work is going surprisingly ok. My boss isn’t being weird or bitchy about the situation. At least not yet. I’m sure by the time we get on the other side of the holiday and the ending date looms she’s going to be a bit more difficult. I’m not looking forward to it.

But for now, we soldier on.
