| | Managing Stress
The next two weeks are going to be an excellent way to build character and strength. All things that will serve me well in my career later on. In the short term I have to manage my eating disorder admist the chaos.
It feels like my whole family is on edge and I am just sitting through one blow up after another. Everyone is getting sick and there are exams coming up. I take it all in my stride and avoid blowing up and snarky remarks. While the sarcastic comments come out occasionally on the whole I'm pretty good. Just laughing it off as the grandparents yell every second and my family drives me crazy. I dream of moving out but deep down I know their not the problem, its my perceptions and coping skills. People only become annoying when you choose to let them.
I am doing alot of deep breathing and cleaning. Both of which are keeping me sane. I think cleanliness is promotes sanity. Also I am being very careful not to pressure myself with excess social commitments. I need to just stay focused on surviving the next few weeks and then moving on with my life. I'm definatley glad that I joined the Monday night meditation group, I think it will help me keep my sanity admist the chaos.
