My Mood: Trying to Stay Positive

1,354 hugs

Default Trying to Stay Positive

I'm hoping to have a good week. The only thing that has me worried is a visit to my med provider mid-week. It's sort of stressful at her office. They play depressing music. I bought small headphones to use when I go. I hope it helps. I feel awful while I wait listening to their songs. I prefer to listen to my stuff. Or something more neutral.

I wonder if it's my illness but the whole office visit is a scary thing to me. And then the entire week becomes unbearable. I have to stop and tell myself that things will work out. That it's a short time out of my day. That my headphones will work and I will only have to wait a little bit.

I wonder why music has to be played in those waiting rooms. I like your idea of wearing headphones. I have an appointment tomorrow and dislike the music they play. This place plays sad love songs. Maybe the solution using those headphones to listen to an audio book or calm, relaxing music.

An audio book is a good idea too. Hope your appointment goes well.

Well my appointment went well. When I got to the office, they were playing nature sounds this time. I was so happy. And I was curious about the sudden change. When I finally saw the provider, the answer was revealed. They replaced the nurse practitioner with someone new. So now maybe I'll always hear soothing, peaceful stuff in the waiting room.

Nature sounds are so much better. I'm glad they changed it for you. For my appointment, I brought my headphones but didn't need to wait more than a minute in the waiting room.

Glad you were prepared with your headphones. Good thing you only had to wait a minute. It's nice when that works out.

I'm really happy that your appointments went well, Deilla and Yzen! Music can have a big impact on our mood and on how we feel! Bringing headphones and listen to our own music is a great idea, I've never thought about it! Thank you so much for sharing it! I understand your fear of office visits, Deilla. It can be really scary and stressful. It's important to take care of ourselves when whe have one and to remind ourselves that everything is going to be ok and that we CAN do it, like both of you have already shown! You're doing great, keep it up! Sending many hugs to both of you, Deilla and Yzen, and to everyone
