Jessica (hell-baby) would love this I think.
You know me well, bb!
I never thought I would say that going in to work would make my day better, but there’s something about losing yourself in your work that is beneficial for me. I need it in order to get out of my own head for a while. I had a day from hell—a day which triggered my old thought patterns of, “oh, better kill myself because that’d be easier than dealing with this situation/shit is hopeless”—and THEN had to come in to work and start my first day on second shift. I could have called in or quit my job on impulse—options I certainly considered, but I didn’t act upon them. I hadn’t felt that shitty in a long time, but I feel better and I’m stronger for overcoming it.
