I'm Doing Good!

I have this major issue with making phone calls. I hate it. I can call my folks or a friend just to find out what the plans are for an outing and stuff, but making serious phone-calls makes me so nervous I could puke.

Today I made two, count 'em TWO, major phone calls that needed to made and that I have been dreading. I am so proud of myself I could just burst.

I am trying really hard to do this thing my therapist once suggested where I just do the things that scare me the most in the hopes that it will make me immune to the fear. Ummm, yeah. I have been working on it for about 3 years now, and I still haven't noticed a change in how I feel before I do whatever it is I am supposed to do. On the up side, I still get the same amount of relief and happiness from accomplishing the task. to tackle the bills. I can do this!

Confession time here...I really don't like making phone calls either. I need to rehearse what I'm going to say, and it never seems to come out right. I am so happy they invented e-mail;it's made my "paying" job so much easier!

I had a customer service phone job for years....gainful employment, but having the phone stuck to my ear all day guaranteed I didn't have much to do with the phone at home. I'm with Deb, e-mail rules!
