Anyone have suggestions on how to relax? Because I am very bad need of it. Lately work has been stressing me out to the point where my chest starts feeling very constricted and I get a sort of tight pain. I try to clear my mind and not think about what is stressing me, but it doesn’t seem to be working. And to be honest, the things that are stressing me are really not that bad. In fact, it’s down right overreacting. But even as I acknowledge that I shouldn’t be so upset, it makes me even more upset.
Is this a side effect of the medicine or of my bitterness over infertility? Could be a little bit of both. I think it mainly has to do with the fact that since I can’t talk about what is going on with my personal life, all my anger is being redirected towards work, and I’m starting to hate it. I used to love my job. Now everything just pisses me off. It’s getting to the point where I don’t even hide my irritation anymore. But it’s not the irritation that I’m worried about hiding…it’s the tears that threaten to present themselves whenever I feel overwhelmed at work that I’m concerned with. I don’t even like Mike to see me crying, I would hate to humiliate myself in front of all my coworkers.
So please, anyone who has found ways to relax and manage their stress, leave me some suggestions. I’m open to (almost) anything.
