My losses become worse when I am tired, hungry, and anxious too. If too much is happening I get anxious and exhausted. The anxiety makes it really difficult to rest. I just keep walking around. Walking around outside helps, if I remember to go out! "Pushing forward too hard is a problem for me too at times. We are both RNs, I think that is a nurse related behavior. When I hear myself use the wrong word, (at first I didnt even hear it) I work with immediately correcting it and relating it in someway to what I was trying to say. I correct it with emotion and emphatic energy and with the correct word. Somewhere I read that increased emotion with the correct word, reprograms the brain. It has helped slowly. Thank you Dawn for your support. You are so therapeutic! I love getting to know you!!
