I need to get it together 

Busy week…had bad anxiety attacks, part of which turned out to be allergic reaction to my cats..which apparently are stressed out by the move, since they regularly pee in the beds….

Had quit my job after 3 days and nights of massive anxiety and no sleep… I had to I guess, since it really hit ne that the summer break is over and I got to spend almost no time with the boys…. I had big plans of helping them process the divorce..the move…yet none of it happened since I started the job that had me there plenty of overtime…so no wonder I got overwhelmed….job was stressful, no time with the boys, no time to properly arrange the new home (still full of boxes…), no time to spend quality time with the boys, no time to process anything, no time to work on myself, which I really need to…job was paying too little for the time invested…anxiety, fear that I am not there for the boys, them being ping-ponged between me and their dad, not knowing each day where and how long they would be, always in a rush always being late to pick them up from their dad because I had to stay late at work……too much 

Now I am taking some time to regroup, to see how much I can get them ready in the little time that’s left for the new school year and binge on some quality time with them, see if I can squeeze some me time as well, see if I can sort myself out….

New school year is always stressful…as noone likes it…they both want homeschooling but it’s not something that my ex ever even agreed to talk about…..

I feel overwhelmed……and bad for quitting I don’t like leaving a job like this… I’m usually very committed …

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive. What makes emotions so special is that they help us to act quickly when logical thought is too slow for us to engage in problem-solving. (See Situations below.) However, for people who may be unusually emotionally reactive, sensitive, or have learned to judge or invalidate their emotional sixth sense from culture, values, gender roles, parents, family, loved ones, etc., emotions may not always cause the expected effective response. Therefore, dialectical behavior therapy came up with the skill checking the facts to help us figure out if our emotional responses fit the facts and intensity of a situation and whether an unwanted or distressing emotion needs skills toward accepting and changing or skills toward accepting and tolerating.
