Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative: Had a sleepless night and woke with extreme hip pain this morning, to the point I couldn't move without pain Smiley Sad I struggled through today because I was so tired..

Positive: Once I got moving and took pain relief the pain eased. I got through today by conserving my energy and really focusing on why I was there Smiley Happy

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative - I've had a rough couple of days and leaving the house / being around people is the last thing I want to do.

Positive - I jumped on the bus with a packed lunch and headed for the beach, although I ended up having lunch in the park.

 

Negative - I headed to art therapy only to find out that todays session was music. I kind of freaked out because at the moment, music makes my mood worse. (Weird, I know)

Positive - I stayed to give it a go. It was not at all what I expected. We wrote lyrics/poems using prompts and songs without words. And now sitting here, writting about it, I feel as though I needed that session. It helped me release some clogged up feelings.

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

@stonepixie it is so awesome that you stayed to give the music session a ago! Even better that you found it helped! Smiley Happy

Negative: Ended up going to a few different places to try and find the mouthwash and toothpaste my new dentist recommended, turned out being a little more expensive than the recent ones I'd seen...
Positive: I eventually found it and picked it up. At least it will help my teeth Smiley Happy

Negative: Woke up feeling sick again this morning, and very unmotivated
Positive: I'm doing a little better at the moment, I've kept my fluids up and kept myself nice and warm! Smiley Happy Even got a nice amount of work done today! #winning

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative: Getting extremely frustrated with Microsoft Publisher and how it keeps Not Responding! :/ It won't work for me! Smiley Sad
Positive: I'm trying to remain as calm as possible. I can try a couple things, hopefully I don't have to redo the whole thing, it took me all day!

Negative: I asked my brother, and all he went on about was other useless crap.. which only confused me and made me head hurt!
Positive: I can google it tomorrow.

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative: Started feeling like a bit better, than I took a major backflip and felt ten times worse. I got to the point where I was panicking and struggling to breathe! I was beginning to think I needed a trip to ER...
Positive: I managed to calm myself down, and slow my breathing. A hot shower did me a little good.

Negative: The GP said to take tomorrow off as well, and because of that I'm really worried that I won't meet my 120 hours I need to for my placement! & to meet them means over pushing my body which I know I cannot cope with right now.
Positive: I can talk to my teacher about it tomorrow when I ring to tell her I'm not going in again.

Negative: A small part of my brain tells me that these 2 days I've got off placement as per drs orders should not be spent on assessments.
Positive: I'm doing the less stressful parts and the most time consuming parts, which I guess isn't too bad Smiley Happy

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Neg: Just realised how much work there is that I have to do, that I have not done! Smiley Surprised Smiley Sad Starting to really panic about it because I should have a lot of this already done! 

Pos:I'm doing my best. I need to remind myself that I've been pacing myself all last week, and things were not done because I was so tired. My teacher said to make sure I take care of myself!

 

Neg: I feel like I've just completely stuffed it all up. I've fallen into a negative ditch againSmiley Sad

Pos: I'm doing my best! I have all my plans written up! I have a a fair few reflections written up! 

 

Neg: I'm a little scared that 1. I wont have enough hours/I wont complete the required hours & 2. I wont get everything done.

Pos: I am doing my best, I will get as much done as I can. I can talk to my teacher about it if it looks like a real posibiliy of me not finishing it all.

 

Neg: I'm not feeling very motivated now after all this thinking. :/

Pos: I am going to take a break, then come back to start something else! Smiley Happy

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

@Bee could you ask your placement supervisor if you can do an extra day or 2 so that you can get your required hours?

 

neg: Really felt like giving craft-a-noon a miss because I just wasn't feeling it.

pro: I reminded myself of how much I enjoy it and how great I feel afterwards.

 

Background Story

I caught a different bus than my usual into craft-a-noon. It is a more popular route and the bus was starting to fill up. I was fine with a lady sitting down next to me, I just moved over a bit more to give me a little space between us.

 

neg: I had an anxiety attack when she decided to move over more leaving me with no space what-so ever.

pro: I just reminded myself that I was alright, this was just a feeling and there was nothing to be worried about. I was able to nip the attack early.

 

neg: I'm really anxious about all the stuff I need to do before leaving for the wedding tomorrow.

pro: Made a list of everything that needed to get done and I don't feel as bad anymore.

 

neg: Feeling extremely nervous about this weekend.

pro: I'm going to have a wonderful time and I will soon forget about how nervous I am.
