I will start by saying that I think hell had a snow flurry this morning. While I don’t believe it actually froze over, I will say that the “receptionist” (see earlier posts) who has been quite ugly to me at my doctor’s office used the word please this morning. I almost dropped the phone. You see, I have been avoiding calling the office and still haven’t heard back from my tests that I mentioned in my Spondylo-what??? post. It has been almost a month, and they scheduled my follow-up appointment for MAY. Let me tell you that when a doctor doesn’t know what you have, and you are given two choices, your mind automatically goes to the worst case scenario.
Have you ever done that? I’m sure you have. Just last week at work our boss called us together for something and the girl closest to me said out loud she thought it was for something bad. Why do we do that to ourselves? Can’t it be for something good? I’m sure it can, but for whatever reason, we don’t get called together for something good very often. Day in and day out I see the signs of stress on co-workers’ faces. It’s like we are all waiting for the other shoe to drop. Well, what if were a clown shoe…or maybe just a slipper?
I think it might be time to think outside of the box just a little. I would like to know what helps you get by. Seriously, what do you do when things are bothering you or you have lots of stress to deal with (and remember these posts are moderated). If you are one of my three readers, wink, please feel free to leave a comment below. It says “Leave a reply” and I invite you to tell me what helps you clear your mind. Furthermore, if you click on the name of my blog, The Burned Hand, it will take you to my latest post and to the right it says “Email subscription”.
