Getting back in the game

Over the past two days I have found it extremely difficult to get myself back into the swing of a daily routine.  Normally I try to keep myself to as much of a structured schedule as possible. It helps me feel more in control and better able to deal with unexpected changes.  Unfortunately being out of the office last week I followed no plan and did whatever I wanted .  I figured being at home there was not going to be any last minute surprises and if there was my parents would be here to help me in the event that I had a melt down.  Simple deviations like going to bed at a later hour impacted me when I resumed work on Monday.  I could not take an afternoon nap like i did the last couple of days and today I was sitting at my desk and I felt myself wanting to put my head down. On top of that I had to put on my actors mask and pretend to laugh at everyone’s jokes when all I wanted to have was silence.  Hopefully as the week progresses I will return to my  normal self but until then I do the best I can.

Thank you for reading!
