There are certain things that help me to successfully adult at work, especially being it’s a mental health field.
Call them “adult toys”.
The progression of drinkware throughout the day.
Don’t even think of talking to me till I’m done with all this – or I’ll sting you! If it’s not 9am yet, then I’m not even here.
By lunchtime, I’m usually ready for a drink, in a kiddie bottle, and a soul-touching conversation with Snoopy.
An afternoon is not complete if you can’t share a cup of tea with friends.
If I have private practice hours in the evening, I’m not done till 9pm. After 12 hours of dealing with others’ problems, I need therapy myself.
And a side of sugar of course.
