So, this was me today. I didn’t take this picture and I didn’t ask for it to be taken, but here it is. I actually laugh when I see it. It reminds me that the people I work with are good people and care about one another. My coworker took this picture of me wearing the mask that K brought back from Korea for me. They think I’m funny and it definitely looks funny 😉 I am glad that they were accepting of it and they were all saying that they didn’t blame me for wearing it, since the flu has been going around the office.
For once, it was good to actually be able to laugh about this situation. I know this mask looks really dorky and I admit I used to make fun of people I saw wearing it, but it gave me quite a bit of relief from the anxiety today. It wasn’t terribly comfortable and I felt self-conscious wearing it at times, but it was better today than Friday, when I was really struggling with my anxiety.
I was just happy when this day was over. I am not looking forward to work tomorrow, but I’m not dreading it as much as I might have.
