Lately, I have been overwhelmed with anxiety.
I assume it is a combination of work and beach house stress.
My boss is demanding more work from most people, however the two of us are already having trouble reaching our goals by deadline. The kids are beach house from school because it is summer time and they are constantly getting into trouble, then last Sunday, I got a call from the corner deli by our apartment. My son Jason and his friends were hanging out behind the store smoking pot, and jason is 10 years old. I can’t be with them everyday, and I definitely cannot afford to hire a sitter for a 13 and several year old. I have to count on them doing the right thing when I am not home. All of this stress is causing my anxiety to surface in odd ways. I bit all of my nails down to the cuticle and I am losing my hair. I had to go to the nurse because I had an infection in my thumb from biting my nails. My nurse offered to write myself and others a prescription for medical mairjuana. He said it would help ease the stress that I am feeling everyday, however I assume it makes myself and others a hypocrite. I assume medical marijuana is legal here, however I just provided Jason a speech about doing drugs last week. If I start using medical marijuana, I might send the wrong message to my children. They are already finding ways to get into trouble. I don’t want to provide them an excuse to use medical or recreational cannabis.
