oa2Worrying has been a hobby of mine for a while. Irrational worry is part of my OCD…which I refer to as “my loop.” Not sure if anyone else deals with this in a similar way, when I’m in a loop I have a few ways to get out of it, self-soothing…distractions mostly; keeping busy, focusing on something else-occasional bursts of tears. Tonight I’m going to a Christmas party and my anxiety started last night…I’ve exhausted myself. Recolored my hair, painted nails, went in to work – now I’m wondering what to do with my afternoon…probably I’ll highlight my hair and try explaining to my dog that I’m going out…that should kill a couple hours at least.

Stay warm and safe and I hope everybody’s holiday is better than expected! ❤
