Wear a hoodie or cardigan over the shirt, so you can keep it covered up until you feel comfortable to show it
That’s probably a good idea. I do love my combadge though, and it always sits on my jacket, but I guess I could cover that as well with a scarf. I usually wear a scarf anyway, unless it’s far too hot outside. (Note to self: wash scarf in advance. If it’s not clean, you will panic and spray it with perfume and smell like a walking beauty store for the rest of the day.)
Now that the phone call is dealt with, I need to prepare for going to a place and taking part in an activity. I will probably have at least one anxiety attack and/or reconnect with my psychosomatic stomach cramps, but the latter is usually manageable as long as I only move very slowly. My greatest fear is that I will start crying uncontrollably in front of the people at the place I’m going to. I guess the only thing I can do is to prepare as much as possible, instead of hiding from the fact that I’m going there next week and pretending it’s not going to happen. Consider this post a stern reminder to myself. I really do want to go to that place and meet those people and take part in that activity, so I need to get a hold of myself now.
I just made a phone call to a stranger. Excuse me while I flop like a fish on the pavement for a while.
Me: *licks own hand*
Me: Get out, I'm trying to describe a tongue.
I’m going to meet my new therapist today, and I must have an infection, because I’m so tired I can barely sit straight.
