One Step At A Time

Yesterday was a rough day in Miki land. I woke up feeling pretty sick and decided my body and  brain do so much for me that I owed them a break. Luckily I now have a really cool job, really cool boss, really cool co-workers and I was able to work from home. Since I figure most of yesterday was a panic attack, I just wanted to be home. I was able to work from my laptop for a few hours spastically throughout the day and then really give myself a break that I desperately needed. I wanted to give a shout out to all of you that commented, posted, and emailed me. Those kind words always go really far with me.
Of course, I’m not feeling 100% refreshed, but I do feel like yesterday boosted me enough to get by. Which at this point, is all I need. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not suicidal. I’m not in a severe depression. I’m just coping. I’m coping with a lot. I’m not sure how to handle it and I think that I’ve overworked myself trying to figure that out. When in reality all I can do is take it one step at a time. That’s not such a bad thing. I think dealing with 1 thing at a time is helping me cope much better than trying to see the overall big picture and getting extremely overwhelmed.
Today I woke up and thought, okay, time to get ready for work. That’s all I need to think about. When I finished that I was able to get myself to work and concentrate on one task at a time to get me through the day. Tonight when I get home, I’ll do that same and hopefully that will help me put things into perspective.

What is your go- to when you’re overwhelmed?
