I had to talk to some irate lady on the phone today. She apparently couldn't read our sign properly and called me instead of my manager and she gave me an earful. I couldn't answer any of her questions (they in no way shape or form had anything to do with my job) and she got extremely angry with me. I was somehow still polite to her for the entire conversation though, so yay me.

After many days inside I got fed up with myself and drove to the bank to retrieve my forgotten password for my online banking account. And it felt good.

Went to my office's annual field day today. Yep... instead of calling in sick, I spent 4 hours at a park socializing and playing games with co-workers. I've been consumed with anxiety about it for the last couple of days and had thinking of ways to get out of it, but I didn't. I sucked it up and I survived. This is probably my biggest SA-related accomplishment in a long time.

So it goes.

I ate inside a Wendy's today. I got my food and sat in the corner. I was scared to get a refill or ask for honey mustard sauce but at least I got out the house.

The fear that the meat I cooked wasn't safely cooked since it was dethawed a bit better than expected...and because I didn't wash something right. Day 2 of my spaghetti eatings, feeling a bit funny but could be anything...after all I ate 3 cookies this morning XD. Faced it by...eating it. Good luck on my foodsafe course, hope I pass LOL ( I haven't actually gotten ill from my own food yet, aside an undercooked pre-fried food I got from a grocery store.....ew food poisoning sucks).

Oh well got the whole day ahead of me!
Lol...I've done this about 3 times on my own mistakes I recall. Sad too is it takes like 45-50 mins to get in....and I rushed in for around 7am. One day I was allowed to work and just took a different day off XD...it's quite embarassing yet so relieving "wooo, I can go home! time to hit the mall first and just goof around"

today went up to the park and played soccer alone. Super attractive i know. But my legs have been bothering me and they feel weak and numb as of late (which has me worried tbh), but I'm still glad I worked up the courage to out today seeing as it was really nice, and hot. The sweat was literally dripping off me.

I finally faced my first job interview today even though it didn't go well. At least the first one is out of the way.

Edit: I didn't get the job.

I faced my second day of my new job today, after having a panic attack outside for about half an hour.

Hi. Hey. Hello.

I went to my local supermarket to get some last minute things for tomorrow (Hate not having things planned out) and I also had no makeup on which makes me suuper self conscious!

I'm just going to give my whole week because this entire week has been super stressful. I faced A LOT of fears though. Tuesday evening I called a random guy about a contract IT job, he told me he'd pick me up at 6AM the next morning. Met the guy at my house in the morning, and he wants me to drive his car to the place ~50 miles away while he works on another project on his computer in the back. I have severe anxiety about driving other people so this was bad, and it was also in morning commuter traffic. I got through it though. I got to the place and started this entirely new job. Worked for a bit and got a ride home from another complete stranger. Went to my public speaking class later that evening which petrified me. Volunteered to go first for my speech, and by the end I volunteered to go first next week as well just to get it over with. That was all just wednesday.

Thursday I went back to the job again but it was a lot less anxiety inducing now that I'd already been before. However this time we were setting up computers at a high school. I'm only 20 and haven't been out of high school very long so it made me extremely anxious to be back in that environment. There were also a bunch of students in the room we were setting up in and teachers were coming by to check out the new computers. Got stuck in traffic on the way home for about 2 and a half hours with the same guy who drove me home the previous day.

Today I went to work at my other job which is inventory counting. Some girl was talking to me a lot at the store which made me a little uncomfortable, but I don't get anxious at this job much anymore because I'm somewhat used to it now.

And tomorrow I plan on taking a huge mental recovery day.

Having SA, I find that the fear that i face everyday is the fear of being anxious, and seeing it manifest in my body without me having the control over it.

Well, I've landed myself a temporary job, which starts tomorrow. If I survive this, I can add that to my list of fears I've tried to face.

tried the fastest zipline here in the Philippines (actually that was last Friday). 21 seconds, 75 meters above ground. And it's my first time.

Made some spotify-playlists that are very personal to me public. Noone's going to ever listen to them, but at least now if a friend wants to peak inside my head it's possible.

Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends

Went to church. Seeing young couples with kids made me bawl. Not a good place for a loner.

Also took a shower with the window open. Although, that is getting easier and easier every day. I'm pretty good at it actually.
