I have been so busy lately; I feel that I haven't given myself the proper time to write a post. I'm guessing I probably won't get it now either, but I’m attempting.
Things have been so crazy the last month, I can’t believe it’s already February. I start classes back up a week from today. I can’t believe my J-Term break is coming to a close – not that it was a break.
Throughout the month I was attempting to clock in as many “face to face” therapy hours as I could to not only meet January’s quota, but catch back up from previous months of not meeting quota.
I am happy to say that I did! My hard work and devotion to harassing my therapy clients paid off, and in doing the math…. I clocked in 54.25 hours total for Jan. We were required to get 30 hours. Leaving me with 24.25 over quota. I was previous behind 21 hours, so, will my overage, I am now the proud owner of 3.25 hours extra for this month! We’re only required 28 hours this month due to the short month and with 5 hours under my belt (from Tuesday!) I am 8.25 hours on my way to being ahead again this month!
Now, let me explain. By “face to face” I mean, actual time spent in the therapy room, that time is counted toward quota, the paperwork time, call time, and schedule time is not. On average, “office time” tacks on an hour to every hour of actual therapy, therefore making the month of January total at 108.50 hour spent in/at/on the phone at the therapy office.
You may be thinking, 108.5 hours in a month is really nothing. If a person works 40 hours per week (like normal people), they would total 160. Keep in mind however, I also have a 15 hour per week job, which I am paid salary for, and I also clocked in some extra time this month to compensate for the upcoming chaos. Therefore making my “work time” and therapy total 168 hours. Okay. That’s normal. Now, here comes the tricky part. Starting next week, we tack on 4 hours of class per week, and at Least 10 hours of reading per week (and that’s on a light week), on top of working, and therapy. Whew. I’m already exhausted.
I’ve also joined the YMCA with Blair, and we’ve been going on a nightly basis. I’m trying to get into shape, and build my confidence back up. It’s been great, but also taxing because yet again it’s more time spent Doing something.
It’s been really difficult to organize my life so that I can manage my time, and figure out how to overcome my ever difficult OCD tendencies to want everything a certain way, and with Blair taking the reins on a great portion of those things it’s led to fights, or disagreements that I know I am/was overacting too, but, yet again, am I? I know I know, OCD Emily. I need to keep that in mind.
This week is about my self care. After devoting so much time to the program/therapy/work etc. I know that before next week I have to give myself some time to reboot. I was SO excited. Blair and I had decided to travel to his parent’s house in
B and I are great. He’s so understanding, and caring about me, how I am, and how we are. He is in tune – as corny as that may sound. Going to the gym with him has been great, it’s gotten us up off the couch, and more active, and I think it helps both of us realize that we’re not really communicating when we’re zoned out watching nothingness on the television. Or, I should say, we’re learning that. We still like to do it too.
So, things are good. I got my books for class, and I’m going to attempt to get the first few chapters read to minimize the stress, but overall, I’m trying to think about the moment as it comes, and just stay on top of my life the best I can.
