I've always had a problem with anxiety. Though I consider myself to be outgoing, confident, and quite self-assured, I still experience terrible anxiety. I'm sure it has something to do with my propensity for depression but whatever. The point is, when the resolution was announced and I found out I was most assuredly going back to work I began to experience fear, doubt, and discomfort.
Can I just say I married the right man? Shehan knew just what to do.
He smiled, laughed a little, and took me in his arms, reminding me that I love my job, our baby was more than taken care of, and I used to do this before every semester of school after a break. He reminded me that once I'm back in the groove of things (usually after the first day) I am comfortable, happy, and well adjusted all over again. He knows me.
As predicted, I had a great day at work.
But I still cried some more. I'm a mom.
