Anxious JellyBelly

Yes, one would think that being a teacher on vacation would mean the absence of anxiety.


Not me.

Btw, the last day of school was one of the hardest days of my career. I loved my class so much and I will cherish the experience for the rest of my days in the classroom. God brought me a wonderful class to heal my heart -- but I think that deserves a whole blog post on it's own.

It also doesn't help that the family drama that my crazy mother has been mired in has added stress to me -- not that she knows it or will do anything to fix the situation. My mother's selfishness knows no bounds. I'm her daughter, I've known that my entire life. Please pray for healing for her and her siblings. I'm growing weary of family in-fighting.

I know that I need to make a to-do list and knock out the tasks one by one.

Homestudy paperwork -- both of our medicals are now done. YAY!!!!

Get contractor into our house so we can have our home visit -- why are schedules so hard to co-ordinate?

Get police checks and finger printed.

Get reference letters out.

Fill in the last of the paperwork.

And yes, do my online Religion course -- which is WAY more work than my in-person class last summer. Hmmm, it was supposed to be the other way around. Why am I doing this again?

Have I mentioned that my Napro doc had me raise my T3. I'm sure that it isn't helping the anxiety levels.

Please say a prayer. Or two.


  1. That T3 can definitely put the anxiety in overdrive. When Dr. Hilgers raised mine from 15 to 20 something a year or so ago, I was in panic attacks and as soon as we went back down to 15, I was fine.

    1. I was feeling anxious before the med raise. I think I need to increase slowly, not an immediate doubling of my dose.

  2. Praying for you! I stopped my T3 treatment because it was so not good for me, I have felt so much better being off of it.

  3. Praying for you! So sorry you have so much family drama!

  4. Prayers for you! Cherish the summer.

  5. I am so excited that you are able to start this adoption process! That is something DM and really want to do but with us moving overseas, agencies are not willing to work with us.

    I hope that in this whole process you will find more and more joy.

    "To do" lists and plans are great! On that to do list add a few date nights to take some of the stress out of all you have to do :)

  6. I love AM's suggestion of "date nights."

    Sending prayers for peace your way. And I am so glad to see your moving forward with the adoption process. St. Joseph, pray for JB and Mr. JB.

  7. I know all about anxiety...not fun. Praying for you as you tackle that to-do list!

  8. Praying for an end to the anxiety. I'm excited about your adoption plans though! Can't wait to see how it all unfolds!
