I’m pretty good at hiding it most of the time and I’m sure some people who know me and read this will be surprised to learn that I have an anxiety disorder. Or maybe they won’t – I may be kidding myself about how well I hide it. Nevertheless, it’s time to do something about it because I’m sick of feeling…well, sick.
Years ago, my husband bought me Lucinda Bassett’s “Attacking Anxiety and Depression” self-help program. I never finished it at the time because I felt like I got a handle on things before I was done with it. But I have obviously not handled it permanently – will I ever? – so it’s time to start from the beginning once again.
We dug it out today and I’ve read all of the introductory and how-to information, so I’m ready to get started. This disorder is so all-consuming and I’m tired of feeling sad and guilty about how I feel. I want to take my life back and be a happy and fun person again, like I know I’m meant to be. Hopefully by the end of the 15 weeks, I’ll be able to cross this goal off my list for good.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
But just so you can say you’ve been there. I wasn’t that impressed, personally. It always looked so much bigger in pictures. Of course they only let you see a small part of it, so maybe that’s why. When I went, they had just brought the Lisa Marie there and you couldn’t tour it.
The admission price is pretty steep, so I guess it depends on how badly you want to go. And I see they charge extra to see the plane…wow. (I wonder who gets all that money.) I’m really not sure how to grade this one now – it wouldn’t be worth it to me today, I don’t think, at least I wouldn’t go a 2nd time. But if you want to go badly enough that you put it on your 43things list…go for it! That’s the only way you’ll know if it’s worth it to you or not and at least you could cross it off your list. :-) Also note that I was a kid when I went – it may be more interesting as an adult.
For those who want to go and can’t, they do have a virtual tour online. And amazingly THAT is free, LOL.
I’m starting to think that multi-colored plastic hangers are just never going to look neat and tidy. Unless I want to color code them and hang them in groups, which just isn’t going to happen. I hope to have a nice closet system one day, so I might as well start changing the hangers out now and it’ll look more classy in the meantime. If I remember to pick up a set of wooden ones each time I go to a store that has them, it won’t cost a chunk all at once. Seems like a good plan to me!
