So after my blog this morning I went and started work, and kept repeating over and over in my head that it was going to be a good day. It’s been anything but. I ended up crying and having to leave the office, all over this one stupid case that is haunting me! I ended… Continue reading Not the best start to the week…
I woke up immediately anxious this morning, not wanting to go to work. Here I am though, sitting in the work canteen bright and early. I should be proud of myself for getting here, but all I can think about is how much I don’t want to be here. It brings me no happiness to… Continue reading Oh work, what am I going to do about you?
Well this week was a long one. The heat was hard to deal with, and as a result, I didn’t meet any of my small victory goals that I set myself last week. I didn’t make it to the gym, or for a swim. I couldn’t bring myself to cook something from scratch in my… Continue reading Small Victories Part 3
That is the question on my mind right now. Well, to be honest, it’s been the question on my mind for about a year. I used to love my job. It brought me happiness daily, and to be blunt I’m really fucking good at it. Recently though, I just keep getting the feeling that I… Continue reading To leave or not to leave?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m over this heatwave already! I’m grateful to only be in the UK, and not in any of the countries that are getting hit with temperatures of over 40 degrees. It’s meant to reach 31 degrees where I am today, and my office doesn’t have air… Continue reading Heatwave anyone?
So this morning I’m feeling a bit strange. I’ve made it to work but I don’t start for another 30 minutes. As soon as I woke up I was hit with those feelings of not wanting to go to work. I’m pleased that I pushed through them to get here, but something still feels really… Continue reading Thought Challenge
Last Friday I wrote a post about small victories, and I set myself a few goals for the week. I’m proud to say that I completed every goal I set. My first goal was to go for a walk. I need to bring exercise back into my life and this seemed like a nice, easy… Continue reading Small Victories Part 2
On Saturday the 31st August 2013, my mum died. On Saturday the 13th July 2019, my dad re-married. I remember when he told me last July that he was going to propose to his partner, A. He texted me, asking if I was free to go for a coffee as he had something he wanted… Continue reading I’m happy for you, I promise.
I’ve been off work this whole week due to my anxiety. It’s not the first time, and I’m not hopeful that it will be the last. I find taking time off sick for my mental health to be something of a catch 22. See, I know all the things I should be doing while I’m… Continue reading Small Victories
Hi, I’m Clare, welcome to On My Mind. I was a little bit worried about starting this blog today, as I wasn’t sure I’d be able to really think of anything to write. Then I realised I’d picked a blog name that gives me a prompt on what to write, what’s on my mind? Well,… Continue reading First post!
