anxiety but I talk/type things out instead of laying on my bed getting progressively more anxious it's like a to-do list except I allow myself to write down negative thoughts! you can respond/react/reassure if you like PROBLEM: Work scheduled me for too many hours PROPOSED SOLUTION: call them and complain ANXIETY BECAUSE? what if I can't get ahold of my HR person when I call? phone calls are scary. what if I'm not convincing enough? what if they fire me and say I am not rehire able because I can't do what I didn't sign up for? What if they hate me?? what if I have to quit and I have nothing else lined up? what if I can't buy things during the Pusheen shop sale? what if they say no? what if they don't like me? ~~trauma: what if they think I'm An Inconvenience? what do I say on the phone? how do I express myself?
