I've been having kind of an intense time at work and this week had some additional stress with my partner's health. I felt pretty anxious and achy yesterday but I was able to keep it at bay and get through what I needed to...today I just feel like I crashed--I feel more achy-ness and anxiety even through the big stress has passed. Actually, as I think about it--this pain flare up started late last week when I got an email from a friend that said something to the effect of, glad you're feeling better, do you think you are now able to be part of xyz volunteer committee? The email had a tone of, ok are you better yet so you can help me? I know it wasn't meant that way but it bothered me. I often feel that my repression is that I'm feeling the tip of the iceberg of feelings--like I'm feeling 10% of how pissed off that email really made me.
