No fixing this one…

Out of the last twenty days I was scheduled to go to work at my new job, I missed six. I didn’t give much notice. Three times, I was having panic attacks.  I don’t know how often I felt sick and was really feeling anxious. Yes, the job was only during afternoons. Yes, Monday-Friday is no big deal to most people. But knowing that I needed to be somewhere every day at the same felt like setting myself up to fail. I knew, on some level, that I would not be able to do this. I hoped. I tried. I did try. I tried so, so hard. I just couldn’t do it. Maybe next time?

    Hey Anne-Marie,
    It was a good job but one that did not fit you at this time. You have a lot to offer don’t forget that! You will find the best way to share your gifts with the world when the time is right and not before. The important part is that you keep trying. You are a resourceful woman. You can take this time now and work on getting the balance you want in your body to ready it for the possibility of conceiving. Stress as you know was not good. You are strong and an inspiration to me. I have faith in YOU! Love you, Judy
