Wellness Wednesday: Mental Health Challenges


Patti said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you have such a disturbance around your home right now. It makes us appreciate the quiet and peaceful times even more. Good for you riding that wave of panic. I sincerely hope that your workmen complete the job soon, so you can return to normal again.

Olivia said...

Thanks, Patti; I do believe they're done at last...they finished late last night. I am truly thankful! Blessings and peace, O

Olivia, I am so proud of you for staying present with your feelings and for the conclusions you drew after...that you need more sleep and to write daily. I think that has been the hugest lesson for me from the GWCC challenge. It's the old airplane oxygen mask analogy every time. Self care has to come first. Love from me (who is going to be at 8:30 as part of her self-care).

Sorry to hear about the workmen hovering and then a panic attack, wow you really handled it amazingly.
You really are a spiritual warrior.


Olivia said...

Thank you, Kelly. Thank you for your support and your love...O XXOO

Olivia said...

Thank you, Kate, for your support and for reframing my "crisis". I am honored that you see me as a spiritual warrior,

Holy moly, O! What a nightmare.

The fact that you turned the whole incident into a learning experience is refreshing. It is not surprising, as I have come to see that you are so well in tune with your own life that I know you can pull off the kind of "riding it out" that you did when you had the panic attack. More importantly, *you* know that you can, and you do!

Wishing you a few days of peace and rebuilding your energy for diving back in!

Thank you so much, Rick. It really did make me feel good. I appreciate the acknowledgment very much. I am feeling not so strong lately; but with believe in oneself, everything is so much easier. I think I've judged myself as being "weak" for having the panic attack in the first place. This reminds me of my strength. Thank you so much, Rick!

Blessings and peace,
