I loved this. It fits so many people I know, including myself. I wish I knew where it came from, though.
I have been thinking a lot about my anxiety. I took a patient quiz for a potential doctor, thinking that my ADHD is finally getting to a point where I may need medication. According to the results of the patient quiz, it seems that my anxiety is ruling my thoughts and setting off my ADHD. I assumed it was the other way around. It also could have been the day of the week. Some days, anxiety is high. Others, not so much.
The below cartoon from Gemma Correll shows tea with anxiety. It’s humorous, but really on point. I guess that if tea could talk, and had anxiety, this would be what it’s saying.
Author Gemma Correll came up with this cartoon to rename the types of pasta. I found it funny. Yes, I realize that it’s not really translated from the original, but many of them get to the point.
In the past, we could pretty much leave the house with just keys. Then it turned into keys, wallet and phone. Now, we have the added challenge of protecting ourselves and others. The comic below shows the current “leave the house” checklist.
I love this comeback. Too perfect!
This cartoon popped up on the Sandra Boynton Facebook page. So many people enjoyed it, that it’s going to be available on mugs and sweatshirts. I really think that it is perfect for so many people, including me these days.
This explains a lot to those of us who have children.
I go back and forth doing my housework and reading/doing homework. Sometimes, the books and homework win. Sometimes the housework wins. It’s an ongoing battle.
When someone tells you about tough things they are going through, you might want to consider staying away from toxic positivity. It isn’t helpful and there are better things you can say to give support. There is a list below.
As always, think before you speak.
Missing from this list is the books that I have been meaning to read forever. Also, my eReader, a bunch of bookmarks, and books that I received as a gift and might not ever read, are all missing from this list.
