So far today, Amy has had minor meltdowns over spilled milk and a missing doll. Evan has the hold-me’s and I may explode if Doug doesn’t bring the car home soon. Based on Amy’s behavior, I need to internalize my anxiety more and express it less. How to implode instead of explode:
Not eating regularly and stress give me headaches and digestive troubles. Lack of time, empty cupboards and general anxiety make it impossible for me to sit down and eat.
not eating = headache
headache = digestive troubles
digestive troubles = can’t eat
can’t eat = headache
Or, Doug could bring the car home and I could get things done (including buying a few groceries).
