I was really tempted to just go to bed...
But I feel like if I CAN do something on my list of things I’m supposed to do, I should at least make an effort (this is why I go to work even on days I’m sure I’ll be completely unproductive.) So I’m writing now, and hopefully it’ll be enough to count for my 750 words in my journal. Today I got some stuff done at work, but not much, and was able to get together...
For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and...– Mosiah 3:19
So I'm doing it...
I just registered for a PHP intake session at my local hospital for Tuesday. I am still not totally sure I need this, but I am sure I need more than what I’m getting from regular outpatient stuff, and I was way, way too pleased to hear the appointment will take 2 hours. I almost forgot how incredibly nervous and scared I was, and how much I was screwing things up, talking on the phone. So my...
Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.– Gordon B. Hinckley (via askamormon)
My answers are never brief.
Why is that I can’t ever answer a one-sentence question with less than 20 sentences of my own?
EAP is like a school’s counseling center, but at work instead. Stands for Employee Assistance Program. The counselors at my EAP center are all LCSWs or better (most have MSWs or another Master’s in a counseling-related field.) Our EAP program also handles company-wide training in things like “How To Not Go Crazy Raising a Teenager” and anger management and smoking...
The thing at work
So I’m totally behind on all kinds of things at work, and my office is a mess, and I’m having issues with the person I don’t get along with, and my supervisors have decided this is a good time to give two days per week of my time to another work group. The work is actually kind of interesting sounding. But I’m losing 40% of the time I already didn’t have enough of,...
Therapy is often exhausting
So I went to EAP this afternoon and it was a weepy experience (as usual.) L, the EAP counselor, feels I’ve made a lot of progress since the last time we had a formal talk - it’s so weird to be talking about how much progress you’ve made in the same conversation where you debate whether an Intensive Outpatient or Partial Hospitalization program would be a more appropriate next...
Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.– 2 Nephi 2:25
I'm at home for lunch!
I love doing this, and wish I could do it more. I can only do it today because my EAP appointment is right after lunch, but it’s so, so nice. I probably like it for mostly unhealthy reasons (comfort food, no people, no one looking at me, etc.) but whatever. Of course, I have to use a bunch of timers to make sure I leave on time - normally I depend on the crowds at restaurants driving me...
Every man should keep a fair-sized cemetery in which to bury the faults of his...– C.S. Lewis
This one time, in college...
My resident adviser, who had known me for TWO YEARS, came up and asked me if it was true that I worshiped Satan. Cause, see, her pastor had totally given a sermon about us that week in church, and that is what he said. I’m not bitter at all about that one, not at all.
We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly;...– Articles of Faith 8
Book of Mormon Challenge
once-she-decided-to-fly: I’m challenging my followers and anyone else who reads this to post one quote from the Book of Mormon (specifically the BoM) every day. You can pick from the topical index (okay, that’s how I read the BoM), post your favorite from your daily scripture study, or even just reblog a scripture you find on someone else’s tumblr. Anything goes. Just post one...
So, in other news, bleh
This evening is one of those “I’ve run out of gas and there’s twenty miles to go” kinds of nights. The day was not particularly productive - I answered some emails, helped a few people, underachieved. I also got word back from my EAP counselor, L. As is so often the case, her not replying had nothing to do with me (I can’t ever tell, and my default mode is always...
