I have a doctor’s appointment in Boston on Wednesday which means I have to take the day off from work to head into the city. While not getting paid for the day sucks, the chance to go into Boston, on a weekday of all days, is something I look forward to. It’s a change-up from my day-to-day, and an opportunity to do something that is strictly for myself (in this case literally, as the doctor I am seeing is the one who helps with my Celiac Disease).
With all the stress from my dad losing his job and coming to accept that I will be moving in the near future and starting grad school in the fall, I’m finding that I need to remind myself to find moments where I focus on me, and just me. Taking the day off for a doctor’s appointment is just that.
