Going off the rail a bit today. Grief. Anxiety. I need some words of encouragement friends.

I'm having friends over after work for fish tacos and backyard beers. I'm getting a little better. Thank you all for what you do.

Really try to stay in the moment with your friends, sunsets.

I'm sorry, Sunsets. It sucks.

One thing I did learn during those periods that stands out is, if you can find a way to not physically react to those emotions, like contacting WW during the emotional swings, it's a good thing.

FWIW, this was something I struggled with and it bit me.

We've all been there friend. That damned rollercoaster.

The dips get fewer and farther apart, aren't anywhere near as intense and don't last anywhere near as long.

On those days I tried to remind myself that what I was feeling was normal and that I just had to get through this next hour, this next day. I made it to the other side, we all made it. You will too.
