Well the saying no did not last long. The person in question phoned yesterday and asked if she could come over. I asked her to come in the day but she said she would rather come in the evening so she arrived. Marvellous.
She also asked if she could have my poncho which my friend crocheted for me - lol. I did say no to that one!
Am having a bit of a tired day - things have been busy and I am doing a lot, another issue of not saying no. Am considering going for a nap but I think it will mean I dont sleep, when my sleep is already messed up.
The more I think about it, the more i think about how the inability to say a 2 letter word and replace it with a 3 letter one has a lot to answer for in my life and I really need to work on this. i even wrote a song about it at one point - quite a good one, if I do say so myself.
So what to do. Maybe I should practice saying no to one thing every day. Today's has been my teeth hurt and I should see the dentist - NO! Tho I am not sure that counts lol.
Well I trust you are all OK and getting along nicely with your days/nights.
So long and thanks for all the fish3 Comments Viewed 135509 times

Oh well, it sounds like it's a work in progress...
I got offered a job the other day. It was so hard to say no but I did because I know how much I still need the time to spend on my recovery. The thought of saying no made my anxiety sky rocket but I had to do it anyway. Hard stuff...
In a way, I am not defined by my dissociation. In a way, I am.
