I had a good week, though I'm still dealing with a severe lack of sleep (just can't fall asleep at all). I've been extremely tired, which usually amps up my anxiety and I become a hermit, but I'm learning that just because I'm tired and my anxiety is a little raised, I can still go out and do what I need to do...I used to think that if I was tired the day was shot and I'd just stay home because I was afraid that my anxiety would get out of control.
So, even though I was exhausted, I went to school on Wed. night, which was huge for me. That's been a bit more of a challenge for me as well, since my husband was taking me, which I was comfortable with, and then his hours were changed at work and I had to start going with my daughter, who I had never gone anywhere with. That's been a huge adjustment for me, but I've done it every week, even gone shopping before and after class! The amount of homework is unbelievable, I spend about 45 hours a week studying and doing homework, but it's giving me such a sense of pride that it's worth it.
So, a tough week, but one I feel really good about!
