I thought I’ve been doing pretty… “somewhat OK”
There have been some hard days… and a few weeks there that I have NOT been doing well at all. But over all, I think I did better then I have in years past. 4th of July came and went I and I didn’t end up in hospital or crying in my Doc’s office.
But there have been some things that have been standing out for me… some stuff where my brain does stop and say… “NO wait, that’s not right. Quit it. Danger will robonson… Danger…”
I’ve been trying to get to know the red flags that my sis or my parents will mention.
I guess for me… my warning sign is high anger about tiny things… (highly getting my nose out of joint when my girlfriend’s sister called me Jim.) I hate being called Jim. I’m not the captain of the enterprise.
High panic about small things and catastrophic thinking… (It’s not allergies… it’s T.B. My sis is late because she just got kidnapped, it has nothing to do with Stadium traffic.)
Just walking away from even family when they are in the middle of a sentence. (because I already know what they are going to say… because I know it all.)
I’m told I start “discussions/ arguments” about stuff that can’t be changed no matter what… (Because I don’t see it that way, so the situation is stupid… )
Now that I’m getting to know what the red flags are… I’m trying to get to know what to do with them. I’m trying to get to know them so I can see them coming. Or at least get better at listening to my family when my ability to see this starts to fade.
I’ve been writing down my Red flags… I’ve been trying to get to know them. I would love to avoid them and not have more problems due to them. Take action before I loose it all.
I was wondering… How are others doing with their red flags?
