Or Not Learning to Live With Anxiety

After yesterday's post, I promptly didn't follow my own advice. Today at work I got so sucked into my anxiety that I sent some overwrought emails to a bigwig at the office about a project we're working on together that's causing me stress. And of course now I'm feeling anxious about that!

What most frustrates me about it, is that I knew it was OCD-related. And I couldn't keep myself from reacting rather than even trying to wait it out.

Tomorrow is another day.


  1. Yes tomorrow IS another day. Don't beat yourself up about this Ann. Some days we are able to fight the OCD, and some days it's just stronger. I'm sorry you had such an anxiety filled day. I know how horrible that is. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs.

  2. You've come so far; I agree with Sunny. Don't beat yourself up over that situation. I say focus on all the times you didn't give in to your OCD!:)

  3. It sucks when I do something even though I know it's OCD-related. I feel a lot of backlash against myself and frustration. But I also know that I expect myself to get it right the first time and every time, but that most learning is much more in fits and starts.
