Anxiety makes it hard

Anxiety makes it hard for me to open up to people.  It is hard for me to keep writing about anything really. If you don’t struggle everyday with social anxiety, you are probably wondering why. And that is okay. And you probably are thinking why doesn’t she just get over it? That is okay too. 

There is a simple answe for that. I can’t “just get over it.”

Why? Because I can’t change part of my personality. Imagine trying to change your personality or something else that would be impossible to change. 

You learn to live with it, you learn coping skills. That is what I have to do every single day. I wake up, and sometimes have a hard time stepping out my front door just because I woke up, and I was overwhelmed already. 

Since I have been learning how to cope in therapy, I have had more good days than bad ones. 
Do I wish I was “normal”? Some days I do. But then I wouldn’t be able to show my boys how I can get better as a mom and as a person. I get to show them how even as an adult, you can learn, change, and always keep evolving into a better version of myself.

Tampons

Well, every woman in the develpoed world will have come to a point in her life where she has had to make the decision about tampons. Why have we not been taught to ask questions about what they are made of? We are taught to ask and learn what is in our food, but why not our feminine products like pads and tampons?

I came across a video on facebook that brought this situation to my attention.

And it needs to be talked about. Because we matter. As sisters, mothers, and as human beings we matter.

 

No this is not a sponsored blog. I feel very strongly about talking about this. I would have never thought to research it on my own. Until tonight that is.

In part this blog is to get your attention, in part to get you talking about this. And also in part a review based solely on the video that I watched.

 

The company I have been talking about is called Lola. The website isĀ Lola Tampons

 

From what I have seen, we need to get behind theses ladies, and support them. They will help change the now and the future.

Melaleuca

I love Melaleuca. I think everyone should be using it. But not everyone that has tried it likes it like I do. Yes, people have had bad experiences with it. I think that is bound to happen with anything you try. Not everyone is going to have a great experience. And that is okay. What is important is that you try, and if you end up having a negative experience, and are truly unsatisfied, at least you know that you tried and gave it your best effort.

If you want to know more I can send you a link for a presentation to learn about this great company!!

If you have any questions ask away!!! I would love to hear from you about your interest, or your experience with Melaleuca, or any other company!! Even if the experience with Melaleuca was not so good, I invite you to come back and give it another try! Who knows, you might just have a better experience this time around.

Work

So, my night job is at an assisted living facility. I am a Licsened Nursing Assistant. I love what I do, but the hours can really take it’s toll not on just me, but my family. I honestly can’t see my self doing anything else, unless it is staying at home and taking care of my family and working from there.

 

There are some nights that go by really fast, but other nights where it goes so slow. I take care of people with varing stages of Alzhimer’s and Dementia cases. So every day is different. Some nights I have residents whom are having a hard night sleeping, and others where everyone sleeps fine. I never know what is going to happen until it happens.

 

 

Work

I love my job. I love that I am able to be home at night, and care for people that need a little extra help. I believe that I was meant to care for others.
