Awake when I shouldn’t be

It’s 11:19pm here in Perth and tonight I need to be asleep. I signed up for a temp job (just for the one day) tomorrow at I start at 7am (!!!)

That means I need to get up at 5:30am, catch the 6am train and be at the Hospital by 7am.

At the time (earlier this arvo) it seemed like a great idea. Yep. Earn a bunch of money for half a day’s work. Clock off at 1pm, get some lunch in the city, then home for a nap. Agreeing to this shows I’m a team player, dependable and hopefully gets me some brownie points with the recruitment agency.

But now Anxiety has stepped in and I can’t sleep!!! My mind is racing and I’m unnecessarily scared about working in a Children’s Hospital.

Omg JD. Calm down!!! All you have to do is be kind, friendly and welcoming, tomorrow. These are things you naturally LOVE to do. Come on, now

You’re not getting hanged or a lethal injection tomorrow so you don’t need to be so frightened.

I so want to go to sleep. Please, God. I need to be able to stop these racing thoughts. I need to sleep.
