Under Pressure

What does that phrase mean…to each of us? Work stress? On a chiropractor’s table? Fish at the bottom of the ocean miles down? Everything is subjective and in turn relative. 

Today is Thursday typically not high on the list of stressful days during the week unless the calendar ends a month or fiscal quarter then. But putting that aside (pun forthcoming), the side effects of stress are crankiness, fatigue, being disconnected, neglect, over-eating, forgetting to eat, and a myriad of other things.

Sometimes I just get stuck. I don’t want to look at or interact with anything outside of my bubble. No household chores, no hanging with friends, no sleeping, no going to work – just a withdraw from everything in a futile and irrational exercise to stop the earth’s relentless spinning and the days and minutes of my continued life pouring through the hourglass. So far that approach hasn’t worked but I’m not about to give up on that yet! Stubbornness is a virtue?
