Good Morning Family,
 
A peaceful Wednesday to all of you. :-)
 
Today's Question:
 
Do you avoid dealing with problems when they arise? If so - do you avoid in a healthy way, or do you just try to numb yourself and put off dealing indefinitely instead?

I do the opposite, which probably isn't much better.  I obsess on the problems, look for as many solutions as I can and basically make my self a wreck worrying over it.  I've talked with my therapist about this several times (before we ended our sessions), and had made some improvements, but since therapy ended I've slipped back into my old ways.  Maybe this is just the reminder I need to get back on track?!

No I don't avoid it. In fact, I am very much like Junebug05 I worry and fret about it and how I can fix it. Luckily my husband helps me alot to settle down. He is the best benzo out there:)

I try to deal with the problems as they come, but when I get overloaded I will procrastinate and stress out about it. As for the numbing, I had a bad past where I used to deal with everything by numbing myself in many ways, which made everything worse in the long run. I guess this means I've come a long way in trying to properly deal with my issues :)

Great and thought provoking question!

I, too, am like Nanners and Junebug05 and fret over problems when they arise. Normally for me, if a problem arises, I worry about it until it makes me sick. It's like a life-altering ordeal. I know that I shouldn't be that way but it's just the way it is for me, I guess. I try and work on that as each problem arises but it's like it never changes.

I deal with problems the moment they arise or otherwise i will obsess and stress over it. Also depends what the issue/problem is cos sometimes it can be easier to bury your head in the sand...

Count me among the obsessors too. I obsess, and then sometimes still avoid!

..........................then again, we have 'head in the sand Maz' who is now on hold to her mobile phone provider (cell phone) because they have barred her phone because she simply couldnt be bothered paying the bill even though she knew she needed to. lazy and major procrastinator
 
mad   and the 'on hold' music redface redface   redface   use the term MUSIC loosely) is winding me up and making me cranky. i hate soft rock ballads from the likes of John Mayer, Matchbox 20, Keith Urban etc.... skull
where is the pearl jam? nirvana? kings of leon? coldplay? cmon!

update: after the anger inducing mellow soft rock, they switched to a B.B King/U2 duet which soothed my rockin, bluesy socks- and after paying the bill- i am practically bankrupt! i had to register and insure my car, and well- $1,300 later im back to basics until next paycheck.... in a fortnight. darnation!

I must be more proactive!

Love you all,

Maz XX
