Scared😱

Finally getting back to volunteering at PAWS starting tomorrow morning. I get super anxious about everything. Haven't worked due to being on disability. Working on getting back to work after CNA classes. Just volunteering is scary to me. Worried I won't do a good job. I'm just going to go with a super pawsitive attitude and do the best job I can!! Hope everyone's day is wonderful😄 Hugs to you all☺😊

Hi Kacey! Sorry I've been away so long. It's like Facebook, if I'm busy I'm not on very much, even though I do read posts.

You are going to be awesome! Don't let anything bother you, focus on all those cute puppies!! We know they provide unconditional love and I bet they will be so excited to see you! I like your new picture, it's nice to see more of your face! You look great lady!!

You're welcome Kacey! I've been crazy busy at work the last few weeks. So much so that I had my days messed up and missed my therapy appointment last week. It's been just insane! Other than that I've been pretty good. Thank you!!

I guess that busy can be a blessing sometimes!!! Does therapy help at all? I don't want to go plus I have no money to my name!! I feel they tell ya what you want to hear. That's what it felt like the few times I did go. Hope its really helping you!! So everything is going good! Love it😄 I'm so happy your happy Leigh☺😊☺😊

It certainly makes the day fly by, but I've been stuck working late and it's causing things like missing therapy.

As for therapy, my psychologist is really great. She has really gotten me to open up about things that I haven't to anyone, including my wife. We've talked often about that BDD issue I've told you about. She has given me some really good advice, and I've followed some of it, the stuff I don't is all my fault, I need to work harder and I'm not motivated enough. I started a men's group two weeks ago. The first session was fun, but nothing about anything very serious (besides money problems). I go again tomorrow night, hopefully it will be more interesting. There was one guy missing two weeks ago, but there are only 4 men including me. We'll see.

Oh wow Leigh!!! Starting a mens group! That's so awesome of you to do. Very caring😄 I'm so happy this therapist is really getting you to open up. I guess that's what we need to heal. Sounds like you are growing a lot!! Very cool Leigh☺😊☺😊

They really go all out to find these guys homes. Our boy Bently was on the radio this morning!! Lol. I'm so happy PAWS does home checks!! How ya doing Starr? How's the boys doing at school???

Reply

(((((((Kacey)))))))) 😊 Awww so cool that they do home checks for the precious angel doggies! When I rescued Coco they did a home check too. Haha he was on the radio!? 😆

Thanks for asking! The boys have been sick for three days but should be good to get back tomorrow. I had a driving nightmare plus a storm is coming so I’m anxious right now.

I’m sure it will be ok though it’s my imagination.

Oh dear sick for 3 days!!! Wow sure hope they get feeling better tomorrow! I didn't know sweet Coco was a rescue. If you told me I'm so sorry I can't remember a thing anymore😱 I know omg that storm seems crazy. Is it going to hit all of Virginia or where your at?? I thought of you instantly when I saw that!! Saying so many prayers that it stays away from you guys!!! Anxiety for sure I would too. It will be ok Gods watching over you and your precious family and parents!!!💝💝

Thank you sooooo! You are so caring! We should not be getting the worst of it. Where I live there is no evacuation put into effect.

I’m so happy your day went well. How often do you work?

Oh thank goodness you'll be safe!! Well I was going in tomorrow but Sarah who I worked with said Tuesdays. Ill be working with her every Tuesday. There's so many caring volunteers that work with,PAWS. Its great to see so many ppl volunteer. Dogs really deserve the best care! If more shifts come available ill sign up for them. School will finally start October 9th. Waiting patiently......
