When my waterline is high
I've been noticing that when my emotional waterline is high to do with IF, everything else seems a lot less manageable. My house starts to look like a disaster. I'm more snappy with D. Things that I would normally let slide stick. I try to control these feelings, but I'm an internalizer. So this means that I just end up swallowing them. And this strategy mostly comes back at me like a boomerang.
Today I'm getting two of my wisdom teeth extracted. And I can actually feel the anxiety kicking in. And yesterday was worse.
I'm not sure how to lower this waterline. I need to find a new coping mechanism. I think the internet (Facebook, Pinterest and email) are my biggest coping mechanism. But the problem is that Facebook and Pinterest are also big triggers.
I need to find something new.
